"The Unforgettable Fire" Lyrics U2
The song was inspired by an art exhibition of the same name by victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The song became the band's third Top 10 hit in the UK, reaching #6 on the UK Singles Chart. The Unforgettable Fire's string arrangement was by Irish jazz musician Noel Kelehan.


Oh shit

Ice, your only rivers run cold
These city lights, they shine as silver and gold
Took from the night, your eyes as black as coal

Walk on by, walk on through
Walk till you run and don't look back for here I am

Carnival, the wheels fly and the colours spin
Through alcohol, red wine that punctures the skin
Face to face in a dry and waterless place

Walk on by, walk on through
So sad to beseach your love so head on
Stay in this night, stay tonight in a lie
I'm only asking but I think you know
Come on and take me away
Come on and take me away
Come on, take me home
Home again

Ever, ever, ever high
And here she comes
Yet she's so far

And if the mountains should crumble
Or disappear into the sea
Not a tear, no not I
Stay in this time
Stay tonight in a lie
Ever after this loving time
And if you save your love
Save your love, save it all
Don't push me too far
Don't push me too far tonight
Tonight, tonight
