SUCH BEAUTIFUL synchronicity... Credible band signs to major label. Early singles nudge the arse-end of the Top 50. Debut album fails to set world alight. Ergo, in spite of building up a fanbase, band is threatened with dreaded 'drop' from major label. Sounds familiar, yes? Yes indeedy, and that is precisely the scenario U2 found themselves in at the start of the '80s....

Give me one more chance, and you'll be satisfied
Give me two more chances, you won't be denied
Well, my heart is where it's always been
My head is somewhere in between
Johnny take a walk with your sister, the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You've been living underground, eating from a can
You've been running away from what you don't understand
Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
Green light, 7-Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don't smoke, don't even want to
Hey now, check your change
I have a lover
A lover like no other
She got soul, soul, soul, sweet soul
And she teach me how to sing
Is there a time for keeping your distance?
A time to turn your eyes away?
Is there a time for keeping your head down?
For getting on with your day?
The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town
You don't know how you took it
You just know what you got
Oh Lordy you've been stealing
From the thieves and you got caught
