Boy falls from the sky (live) – lyrics

Transcript of the lyrics of “Boy falls from the sky” as sung live in Coimbra on October 3rd, 2010.

You can change your mind
But you cannot change your heart
It’s a compass and a map
The key to the chart
I’d be myself
If I knew who I’d become
You fly too high
And get too close to the sun
See how the boy falls from the sky
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Not every wanderer
Is lost or far from home
I didn’t have to move so far
To find myself alone
Save, you save yourself
Can’t even get that right
I used to use a single thread to cross the sky
And now the eye of the needle is a heart denied
See how the boy falls from the sky
The city conducts a symphony
The search through shit for melody
A single scrap of dignity
In the junkyard of humanity
On the burning rubble and the sulphur sky
We look for clues yeah, you and I
Although the screams and the sirens wail
[..?] is up for sale
The subway screech soars down the drain
The thunder when there is no rain
So listen hard, listen again
To your own voice and the rain comes back
You know exactly what to do
The you and me, the we and you
Together you start the self esteem
And when you do
And when you do
And you believe

It’s a musical journey: Edge and Bono team up for Spider-Man

Move over Sir Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. While we were away (celebrating a birthday among other things), the first bit of real news in a while popped up on the newswires. It appears The Bono and The Edge are keen to conquer Broadway. They are writing music and lyrics for a Spider-Man musical, Marvel Studios announced on Friday.

The show will be directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King, Titus). Auditions are already taking place, and a reading is scheduled for July.

It’ll be interesting to see how Team The Fly tackles this one!
