KROQ airs Window in the skies

“I think that’s going to be our biggest song in a long time. It’s a psychedelic pop song with 6/8 timing, you never hear that. It’s very, very rare.” (Bono, Adelaide Advertiser, Nov 3)

“The shackles are undone
The bullet’s quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun
Will keep us when its done”

Los Angeles radio station KROQ have played U2’s new song, Window in the Skies and our friends at U2.se have transcribed the lyrics for you and added chords too. Some blogs are offering downloads of the song, although the mp3 has quite a bit of interference on it at the start.

According to U2achtung.com, Interscope, who distribute U2’s records in the U.S.A., has demanded the station stops playing the track.


Window in the skies

The shackles are undone
The bullet’s quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun
Will keep us when its done

The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grain is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
What it’s doing to me

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love where love may please
Soul in a strip tease
Hate brought to its knees

Sky over our head
Can reach it from our bed
If you let me in your heart
And out of my head

Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
What it’s doing to me

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Please don’t ever let me out of here!
I’ve got no shame, oh no, oh no!

Oh can’t you see what love has done
Oh can’t you see…
Oh can’t you see what love has done
What it’s doing to me

I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder but you and I
But love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

Oh can’t you see what love has done
to every broken heart
Oh can’t you see what love has done
for every heart that cries
love let a window in the skies
and to love I rhapsodize
Oh can’t you see

  1. This is a charity song? I thought Saints was the charity song.

    And in any case, why post copyrighted lyrics?
    Why does the sun shine?
    Why do birds suddenly appear?

    Windows in The Sky is not for charity.

  11. I’ve had this song stuck in my head since those leaks from France were posted a few months ago. It was my clear favorite out of the bunch. The falsetto bits are amazing. I thought I’d have to wait for the new album to hear it, so this is wonderful news for me!

  13. man this track rules. U2 are really pushing themselves to places they’ve never been – place like 6/8 timing. is that the sound of chris martin crying? rick rubin, you are a freakin’ genius!

  15. Here’s a thought…windows to premiere in Melborne on the 18-19th?
    Timing wise for the release of U218 it makes sense…sorta?

    I think this tune will live up to all the excitement and talk about it.
    although who knows..i seriously thought ES was going to be a bigger hit than it was, but it really wasn’t deep enough lyrically (to say the least!).
    This song has that heart of a “One” type song. Imagine if One was a new single today. it would be a number one hit in 4-5 formats instantly. That song was way before it’s time i think-
    Windows may be perfectly timed~

  19. Yes, that was it. It was the chorus ‘Oh can’t you see what our love has done’ that was sung to me.
