"Vertigo" Lyrics by U2 from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb


At the beginning of the Vertigo, Bono counts off in Spanish ¡Uno, dos, tres, catorce! In English, this translates to "one, two, three, fourteen!" (the correct translation of "one, two, three, four" would be "uno, dos, tres, cuatro." When asked about this possible mistake in an interview for Rolling Stone Magazine, Bono replied "there may have been some alcohol involved." Booya!

U2's Vertigo lyrics:

Unos, dos, tres, catorce

Turn it up loud, captain

Lights go down
It's dark, the jungle is
Your head can't rule your heart
A feeling is so much stronger
Than a thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul
It can't be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello, hello
Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something I can feel
Feel

The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They twinkle
As the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can't stand the beats
I'm asking for the check
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music

Hello, hello
Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
But you give me something I can feel
Feel

Checkmated
Hours of fun
Show me, yeah

All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want
And no one gets hurt

Hello, hello
Hola
We're at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
Lights go down and all I know
Is that you give me something
I can feel your love teaching me how
Your love is teaching me how
How to kneel
Kneel

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
