Sometimes I feel like I don't know
Sometimes I feel like checking out
I wanna get it wrong
Can't always be strong
And love, it won't be long

Oh sugar, don't you cry
Oh child, wipe the tears from your eyes
You know I need you to be strong
And the day is dark as the night is long
Feel like trash
You make me feel clean
I'm in the black
Can't see or be seen

Baby baby baby, light my way
Alright now, baby baby baby, light my way

You bury your treasure
Where it can't be found
But your love is like a secret
That's been passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house
Where no one can sleep
I guess it's the price of love
I know it's not cheap

Oh come on, baby baby baby, light my way
Oh come on, baby baby baby, light my way
Baby baby baby, light my way

I remember
When we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together in whispers and moans
When I was all messed up and I heard opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb hanging over my bed

Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby, light my way

A real yawner...
I really like U2, but, this is not one of their best tunes.
Out of time
Took me forever to like or listen through this album. And yes, I'd consider myself a big U2 fan. After 20 years I still get more out of it each listen. I'm not sure if that's the nostalgia talking or the transcendence of the album but I'll take it.

Yeah, because no other band ever repeats a line in a song.  "Hey Jude" anyone? laaa la la la la la la....

OK, I gave it another try, and listened to the entire song. It still doesn't do it for me. But, there are people here that like it. ...it is not bad enough for me to hit the "skip button". ...and I will probably listen to it again.

they really did need someone to light their way at this stage of their career....

Sorry. That voice you know. It's just another 1.
THE most under-rated song on the album. the bass line is unbelievable, second only to with or without you...

Gonna upload Acrobat as well. I think it's the better song. This is a bit more catchy, though. Not U2's best by a long shot, but still likeable. Good memories. I skipped school on the day of this album's release and listened to it all day. It still holds up well even today and hasn't aged at all, at least not to my ears.

Probably my least favorite from this album. Other songs on the album are first-rate. This feels like they're just filling.
