Every breaking wave on the shore Tells the next one there'll be one more And every gambler knows that to lose Is what you're really there for Summer I was fearless Now I speak into an answer phone Like every fallen leaf on the breeze Winter wouldn't leave it alone Alone If you go If you go your way and I go mine Are we so Are we so helpless against the tide Baby, every dog on the street Knows that we're in love with defeat Are we ready to be swept off our feet And stop chasing every breaking wave Every sailor knows that the sea Is a friend made enemy And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is To live without intimacy I thought I heard the captain's voice But it's hard to listen while you preach Like every broken wave on the shore This is as far as I could reach If you go If you go your way and I go mine Are we so Are we so helpless against the tide Baby, every dog on the street Knows that we're in love with defeat Are we ready to be swept off our feet And stop chasing every breaking wave The sea knows where are the rocks And drowning is no sin You know where my heart is The same place that yours has been And we know that we fear to win And so we end before we begin Before we begin If you go If you go your way and I go mine Are we so Are we so helpless against the tide Baby, every dog on the street Knows that we're in love with defeat Are we ready to be swept off our feet And stop chasing every breaking wave

my younger brother passed away from colon cancer 2 weeks ago. As I was cleaning up and leaving the hospital I heard music on and off. It was this song buffering on my Iphone in my pocket, all songs were deleted but this somehow played. After my wife watched the video, the ending with Sam being told "You're gonna be OK" a coincidence or something more? Am I a casualty with the war of cancer? Like that character Sam. My name is Sam and watching my brother slowly die haunts me. I've played this song every day since.
Betsy Collins
U2's music has always been great! What is truly amazing is how they have evolved in their sound! I love it! This one and Song For Someone are two of my favorites!

Just want to clear this up for everyone about the 'Songs Of Innocence' release: Apple/U2 didn't hack into anyone's phones. This is one of the biggest misconceptions of the whole thing. Apple didn't force it onto anyone's phones. I am a HUGGGEEEEEEE U2 fan and I was freaking out cause it took me nearly an hour to figure out how to download it. Apple put a free copy of the album in your purchased playlist, which meant that you had to go onto the iTunes app, click on 'Purchased' and download it from there (should you choose to). However, Apple didn't think too much about the fact that there could be a backlash because if you have set your iCloud settings on your Apple device to automatically download any purchases of Music (Can also be done with Apps, Videos etc.), then the album would automatically download. So again, it was essential yup to the owner of the apple device/account whether you wanted to download it, but if you have your settings on to download any newly purchased music then it would automatically download it as you have told your Apple device to do that. The release was bound to cause a backlash as for some reason lots of people love to bash U2 (one of the greatest and most influential bands/artists of all time) and people jump to these assumptions. Personally I think that 'Songs Of Innocence' is criminally underrated and is in their top 7ish albums. It is a little overproduced but its so fresh, its like modern U2 meeting early U2, the bass is coming straight out of their first album 'Boy' and though The Edge doesn't have much of that signature guitar sound of his on this album, the album is supposed to be stripped back, having simple songs (Seriously, listen to 'Every Breaking Wave (Acoustic') - ONE OF U2'S GREATEST SONGS EVER WRITTEN). It felt very much like it was Bono's album, it's incredibly personal to their stories (many of which center around Bono) growing up. I just cannot wait for 'Songs Of Experience' because it feels like they are up to their great songwriting again, and this will be much more of a full-on U2 with all the melodies, lyrics, guitar effects, riffs etc. so long as they don't do the same release as 'Songs Of Innocence' then people will be more interested in the album. Thats all guys, peace out ! :D

its hard to imagine that a single band can completely transform you. no matter what you are feeling, it ends up leaving this smile on your face.

I first heard this song on a larry stylinson video and fell in love with it. I kept watching the video over and over and finally just got the song itself. it's amazing. this should be #1 not whatever junk is playing right now

I get so much nostalgia from this

Обожаю ваше творчество!Спасибо!)Всех благ и успехов!

The lyrics of U2 often describe an intimate understanding of the human condition, and instead of consoling listeners they apply their artistic genius to guide us in our struggles. No one does this like U2, and this song is one of the best examples I think. Wise advice, inspirational art. God blessed these guys and they've turned that into a blessing for all of us who listen.

"we know that we fear to win and so we end before we begin" oh, how much I relate to this line. Beautiful.
