« on: September 04, 2008, 11:37:25 PM »
Out Of Control
St. Goarshausen, Germany
Lorelei Amphitheatre
August 20, 1983

(Alan Bangs: “Liebe Freunde, wir haben uns zu Gast...live im Rockpalast hier auf der Lorelei…Ladies and gentlemen, German television proudly presents...)
Live as our guests in Rockpalast...U2!

How’ya doing?

It is tremendous

Monday morning, eighteen years of dawning
I say how long / How long
I say how long / How long
It was one dull dawning, woke the world with bawling
I was so sad / So sad
They were so glad

I was of the feeling it was out of control
You say, out of control
Oo-ho-ho-ho
Um-ho-ho

Boys and girls, go to school and girls
They make children
Not like this one

I was of the feeling it was out of control
You say, out of control
Oo-ho-ho-ho
Um-ho-ho
Oo
Pick it up

You know who this is?
This is The Edge!

I was of the feeling it was out of control
You say, out of control
Oo-ho-ho-ho
Um-ho-ho


Out of control?
Shhh
It’s under control
You keep me waiting
Waiting’s not too long
I can’t stand up
You won’t sit down
I won’t give up
I won’t give up
It’s out of control
Oo out of control

I fought fate, there's blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It's in his childhood
One day I'll die, the choice will not be mine
Will it be too late / Too late
You can't fight fate

I was of the feeling it was out of control
You say, out of control
Oo-ho-ho-ho
Um-ho-ho

Thank you!
Thank you very much
The future's gonna land on you

Twilight
St. Goarshausen, Germany
Lorelei Amphitheatre
August 20, 1983

I look into his eyes
They're closed but I see something
A teacher told me why
I laugh when old men cry

My body grows and grows
It frightens me you know
The old man tried to walk me home
I thought he should have known

Twilight, darkened day
Twilight
Twilight, lift me up
Twilight, I lost my way
(My way)

In the shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
In the shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
In a shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
In a shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
Man

Bring it up
Laughing, laughing in person (her song?)

I'm running in the rain
I saw, a late night play
He’s all, he’s everything
I'm soaking through the skin, ah-hah

Twilight, darkened day
Twilight
Twilight, pull me up
Twilight, I lost my way
Can't find my way
I lost my way
Can't find your way

Speed up

Twilight, pull me up
Twilight
Twilight, lift me up
Twilight, I lost my way
Ah

In the shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
In the shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
In a shadow / Shadow / boy meets man
In a shadow / Shadow / boy meets man

Man
Man
Man

Thank you
The future's gonna land on you

An Cat Dubh
St. Goarshausen, Germany
Lorelei Amphitheatre
August 20, 1983

A song called The Black Cat, An Cat Dubh
C’mon up

Say goodnight
She waits for me to put out the light
When I’m still
She waits to break my will

Yo-oh-oh-ho-ho, ho-oh-ho
Yo-ho-ho-ho, yo-oh-ho
Yes and I know the truth
About you
She cat

And in the daylight
A blackbird makes a violent sight, ooo
When she is done
She sleeps beside the one

Yo-oh-oh-ho-ho, yo-oh-ho
Yo-ho-ho-ho, yo-ho-oh
Yes and I know the truth
About you
She cat

The bass player! 
Bass player!
Guitar
Speed up now, speed up
Please don’t let go, never fire, never fire(?)

Yo-oh-oh-ho-ho, yo-oh-oh
Yo-ho-ho-ho, yo-oh-oh
Yes and I know the truth
About you
She cat

Lift it up
Lift it up

When you’re gone,  it’s been too long
We’ve been waitin’ all day for this
We’ve been waitin’
We’ve been waiting all year for you
For you

The future's gonna land on you

Thank you

Into the heart

Surrender
St. Goarshausen, Germany
Lorelei Amphitheatre
August 20, 1983

From an LP titled War, a song titled Surrender
Bring it up
Dance with me…alright
Alright

Oh, the cities and lights with lovers and lies
Bright blue eyes
Ah, the city is bright
It's brighter than day tonight

Surrender, surrender
Surrender, surrender

Rise up
Sadie said she couldn't work out
What it was all about, and so she let go
Now Sadie's on the street
And the people she meets you know, yeah

Trying to be a good girl and a good wife
Raise a good family and lead a good life
Not good enough!
She got herself up to the 48th floor and
Gotta find out, find out what’s she living for

Surrender, surrender
Surrender, surrender

It could be tonight
It won’t be tomorrow
It could be tonight
Tonight, yeah
(Speed up)

Ah, the city's a fire, a passionate flame
Knows me by name
Ah, the city's desire to take me for more and more, yeah
It's in the street getting under my feet
It's in the air, it's everywhere I look for you
It's in the things I do and say
And if I want to live I’ve got to die
To myself someday

Wo-oh-oh-yo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Sing it
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Heave me up…here
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Ah, I need a prayer fully
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Yea
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / I’m insane, speed up
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Walk for me
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

It’s the Eurovision sound contest round here
Congratulations and celebrations
I want the world to know how happy I can be
Sing it, sing it louder!
Come on, hold me up

A little lovin’ a little praying
For tomorrow, a little peace
A little…peace…shhh
A little…peace

Gonna wait till the...hour
That’s when my love comes tumbling down
I’m gonna wait till the midnight hour
The midnight hour…sorry Stevie
Sing it for me

Wo-oh-oh-yo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh / Thank you
Surrender, surrender


It's messy transcribing the end when Bono climbs on a fence post, falls backwards on his ass and keeps singing, then goes back for more. Edge is left singing the wo-ohs and Bono joins in or shouts to the crowd.

Two Hearts Beat As One
St. Goarshausen, Germany
Lorelei Amphitheatre
August 20, 1983

Two Hearts…Two Hearts Beat As One
Speed up
This is love
Ooh

I don't know
I don't know which side I'm on
I don't know my right from left
Or my right from wrong
They say I'm a fool
They say I'm nothing
But if I'm a fool for you
Oh, that's something

Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts

I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance

Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts
Two hearts
Two hearts, you got it, alright

Beat-em

I don’t know
How to say what’s got to be said
I don’t know if it’s black or white
There’s others see it red
I don’t get the answers right
I’ll leave that to you
Is this love out of fashion?
Or is it the time?
Are these words distraction
To the words you wanna hear

Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Try to spit it out, try to explain / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
The way I feel, oh yeah / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts
Two hearts
Hearts

I can’t
I can’t
I can’t
I can’t
I can’t
I can’t stop
I can’t, uh
I can’t

I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
Can’t stop to dance

Thank you
Thank you very much

Seconds
St. Goarshausen, Germany
Lorelei Amphitheatre
August 20, 1983

It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh
Push the button and pull the plug
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh
Say
bye-bye
Where you going to now


Lightning flashes across the sky
East to west, do or die
Like a thief in the night
Seeing  the world by candlelight

Fall, the rise and
Fall, the rise and

In an apartment on Times Square
You can assemble them anywhere
Held to ransom, held to pay
A revolution every day
U.S.S.R., D.D.R.
London, New York, Peking
It's the puppets
Puppets pull the string

Fall… the rise and
Fall… the rise and

Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye

It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh
Push the button and pull the plug
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh

Fall…this is the rise and fall of all
Fall…yeah the rise and fall

And they're doing the atomic bomb
Do they know where the dance comes from
Yes, they're doing the atomic bomb
And they want you to sing along

Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye


The future's gonna land on you

Intro to SBS   

Thanks to angelfish23 who graciously responded to my persistent nagging to transcribe this part. ;D

In Bono-Deutsch:
Das nächste Lied(e) handelt von einem Tag
In der gehölzt (??) Von/und (?) Irland den (k)einer vergessen kann
Aber vergessen sollte

Rough translation:
the next song is about a day in the heart of Ireland, that (no) one can forget
But should forget

Let's give Bono the benefit of the doubt. It's always cool when he tries to speak to the audience in their language.

(Coming soon...my monograph on the Bono-Deutsch in Another Time, Another Place..."

We’re a band from Ireland called U2. Thank you for today. This is Gloria.

Two-three-four, four
Get up
Up

I try to stand up but I can't find my feet
I try, I try to speak up
But only in you I'm complete

Gloria
In te domine

Exultate
Gloria, Gloria
Oh Lord, loosen my lips
Loosen up
Up

When I try to sing this song, I
I try to get in but I can't find the door
The door is open
You're standing there, you let me in

Gloria
In te domine
Gloria
Exultate
Oh Lord
If I had anything
Anything at all
I'd give it to you
I… I'd give it to you
To you
I give it to you
Up, up, up, up, up, up
Up, up
