With or Without You

“My tears are flowing for you
As my mind wonders and heart beats...
I feel like nothing without you...
I know I'm nothing without you...

- Gary R. Hess

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This U2 song is from 1987 - a bit new for our tastes, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmSdTa9kaiQ - With or Without You - U2, 1987


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/With_or_Without_You:

"With or Without You" is a song by the Irish rock band U2. It is the third track from their 1987 album, The Joshua Tree, and was released as the album's first single on 21 March 1987. The song was the group's most successful single at the time, becoming their first number-one hit in both the United States and Canada by topping the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks and the RPM national singles chart for one week.

"With or Without You" features sustained guitar parts played by guitarist The Edge with a prototype of the Infinite Guitar, along with vocals by lead singer Bono and a bassline by bassist Adam Clayton. The song originated from a demo recorded in late 1985 that the group continued to work on throughout The Joshua Tree sessions. Ostensibly a troubled love song, the track's lyrics were inspired by Bono's conflicting feelings about the lives he led as a musician and domestic man.

Critics praised the song upon its release. It is frequently performed on the band's tours, and it has appeared on a number of their compilation albums and concert films. "With or Without You" is U2's second most frequently covered song.[1] In 2010, Rolling Stone magazine placed the song at number 132 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time"...[2]

Bono wrote the lyrics while struggling to reconcile his responsibilities as both a married man and a musician. His wanderlust in belonging to a musical act was often at odds with his domestic life.[6] While writing the lyrics, he realized that neither facet of his life defined him, but rather the tension between the two did. He explains that the final lyric is about "torment" and how repressing desires only makes them stronger...[6]

   WOWZERONI! Thank you, Dools!


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/30/15 - "Acts 2:38":

A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services, when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled, "Stop! Acts 2:38!" (Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven.)

The burglar stopped in his tracks.

The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: "Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you."

''Scripture?" replied the burglar. "She said she had an axe and two 38's!"

Send this to someone who needs a laugh today and remember. Knowing scripture can save your life - in more ways than one!

   GIGGLES! Thanks again, Haul Party!

With or Without You

Written by
Bono (Paul Hewson), The Edge (Dave Evans), Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr.

Recorded by U2, 1987


See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight 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 to win and
Nothing left 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

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