Bono – So Cruel (Acoustic)

Easily one of my most favourite songs off of Achtung Baby, here is a video of So Cruel promoting the BluRay/DVD release of Davis Guggenheim’s U2 documentary From the Sky Down.

Shortened lyrics in this version:

We crossed the line
Who pushed who over?
It doesn’t matter to you
It matters to me
We’re cut adrift
We’re still floating
I’m only hanging on
To watch you go down
My love

Oh… love…
In love and war, there are no rules
Oh… love…
That said, you’re so cruel

She wears my love like a see-through dress
Her lips say one thing
Her movements something else
Oh love, like a screaming flower
Love… dying every hour

You don’t know if it’s fear or desire
Danger the drug that takes you higher
Head of heaven, fingers in the mire

Oh…love…
To stay with you I’d be a fool
Oh…love… Sweetheart… Sweetheart…
You’re so cruel
