U2 – The Blackout


A big mouth says the people, they don’t wanna be free for free
The blackout, is this an extinction event we see
[Chorus]

A meteor, promises it’s not gonna hurt, yeah
A dinosaur, wonders why it’s still on the earth, yeah
The light that we can really be
[Verse 2]
In the darkness where we learn to see
When the lights go out
Blackout, it’s clear, who you are will appear

When the lights go out
When the lights go out

[Chorus]
When the lights go out, throw yourself about
[Chorus]

When the lights go out
When the lights go out
When the lights go out
When the lights go out, don’t you ever doubt
When the lights go out
Earthquake, always happen when you’re in bed, Fred
Statues fall, democracy is flat on its back, Jack

In the darkness where we learn to see
Go, easy on me, easy on me, lover
When the lights go out
Go, easy on me, easy me, lover
The house shakes, maybe was it something I said, Ned
When the lights go out
Go, easy on me, easy on me now
The light that we can really be
When the lights go out

In the darkness where we learn to see

When the lights go out
We had it all, and what we had is not coming back, Zach
Go, easy on me, easy on me, now
When the lights go out, throw yourself about
When the lights go out, don’t you ever doubt
When the lights go out, throw yourself about
When the lights go out
Blackout, no fear, so glad that we are all still here
When the lights go out

The light that we can really be
[Verse 1]
When the lights go out, don’t you ever doubt
