"Desire" Lyrics U2

Based on a Bo Didley guitar riff, Desire was U2's first UK number one. This was the big single off the Rattle and Hum album, the others being All I Want is You and Love Comes to Town.

Desire Lyrics:


Lover, I'm on the street
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar on fire

She's a candle burning in my room
Yeah I'm like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon everybody got one
And the fever when I'm beside her

And the fever getting higher
Desire, desire
Burning, burning

She's the dollars
She's my protection
Yeah she's a promise
In the year of election
Oh sister, I can't let you go
Like a preacher stealing hearts
In a traveling show
For love or money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money

And the fever, getting higher
Desire, desire, desire, desire
Desire, desire
