"Even Better Than The Real Thing" Lyrics U2






EBTTRT was originally titled "The Real Thing", but was eventually renamed to a longer variant of the song's chorus lyric.

Bono has said this was done because the title, as well as the song's lyrics were more "reflective of the times [the band] were living in, when people were no longer looking for the truth, [they] were all looking for instant gratification.

In the ultimate irony, a Paul Oakenfold remix of the song charted higher on the UK charts than the original.

"Even Better Than The Real Thing" Lyrics U2

Give me one more chance and you'll be satisfied
Give me two more chances, you won't be denied
Well, my heart is where it's always been
My head is somewhere in between
Give me one more chance, let me be your lover tonight
Oh yeah, check it out

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing, child

Give me one last chance and I'm gonna make you sing
Give me half a chance to ride on the waves that you bring
You're honey, child, to a swarm of bees
Gonna blow right through you like a breeze
Give me one last chance, we'll slide down the surface of things

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing, child

We're free to fly the crimson sky
The sun won't melt our wings tonight
Oh now, here she comes
Take me higher
Take me higher
Can you take me higher
Will you take me higher

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing

Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
