U2's "With Or Without You" lyrics from The Joshua Tree


"With or Without You" was the lead single from U2's 1987 album, The Joshua Tree

It is arguably one of U2's most popular songs.

 Released as a single in March 1987, it became the U2's first American Billboard number #1 one hit, spending three weeks at the top. 

The follow up single, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For also become number one.

This song is a U2 fan favourite and played at every live concert, often at the end of the show just before the encore. 

Bono often brings a female on stage and sings the lyrics to her. 

"With Or Without You" lyrics by U2


See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Slight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied, my body bruised
She's got me with nothing left to win
And nothing else to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

I love how in the video to With or Without You, Bono doesn't even play the guitar...
