Stuck in a moment?

One of my top U2 songs that got me through some dark days, it was like a lecture to my soul and often listened to it back to back.  Eventually the tears dried and I was singing and dancing with my eyes closed, a smile firmly planted on my face.  Was going to post Beautiful Day but a person with amazing musical taste beat me to it so head over there and have a listen as well 😀 Song of the day – Its a beautiful day – U2 You can’t not love that song!

I’m not afraid
Of anything in this world
There’s nothing you can throw at me
That I haven’t already heard
I’m just trying to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you. Ooh.
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
‘Cause tears are going nowhere baby

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And now you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see

You are such a fool
To worry like you do.. Oh
I know it’s tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don’t really need now
My, oh my

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Oh lord look at you now
You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment
And you cant gt out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm ’til you discover how deep
I wasn’t jumping, for me it was a fall
It’s a long way down to nothing at all

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass

It’s just a moment
This time will pass

  1. It’s just a moment, this time will pass……..
    Truer words could not be spoken. And, in the end, there will be a hand out to help you up.

    Thanks, I am in tears……..V.

  2. Awwwws *reaching through screen and giving V a MASSIVE hugs*

    There are always stars in the sky as there is always day after night, a beautiful sunset, a beautiful dawn… Mwah

  3. I love that song.. I need to d/l it to my ipod immediately! I have heard it many times…liked it but never gave it proper attention. Thank you for bringing it to me.

  4. “You’ve got to get yourself together. . . ” reminds me of a lyric, in the way it effects me, that the Chilli Peppers wrote: “With the bird I’ll share this lonely view.”

    Music and specifically the words that are the building blocks of a song are most beautiful in the way they communicate!
