Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or Without you 2x

I can't live
With or Without you
And you give yourself away 2x
And you give 2x
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised she got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose
And you give yourself away 2x
And you give 2x
And you give yourself away
With or Without You 2x
I Can't Live...With or Without You

Ohhhhhhh Ohhhhhhhh
With or Without you 2x
I can't live
With or without you 2x
Hoooooooo Hooooooo



I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR


This song is played in the key of C# (C#, F#, G#), but works equally well
in C (C, F, G) or G (G, C, D), so long as you don't play along to the recording.

C#
I have climbed highest mountain
             G#
I have run through the fields
        F#
Only to be with you
        C#
Only to be with you

C#
I have run
       G#
I have crawled
                    G#
I have scaled these city walls
           F#
These city walls
        C#
Only to be with you

      G#            F#             C#
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
      G#            F#             C#
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for X4
SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY

Intro-Riff A)
Bm              D                     G
I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes and make it go away
D
How long?
Em
How long must we sing this song?
D                    Em
How long, how long?
B               D  G
'Cause tonight we can be as one, tonight!
Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead-end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won?
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mother's children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your bloodshot eyes

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and T.V. is reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won,
On Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday...

Yeah, lover I'm on the streets
                    [+]                         [+]
Gonna go where the bright lights and the big city meet
             Dsus2         A     [+]
With a red guitar, on fire, Desire

She's the candle burning in my room
I'm like the needle - needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon, everybody got one
And the fever when I'm beside her
Desire, desire

 Dsus2 A   Dsus2 E
(Burning, burning)

She's the dollars
She's my protection
She's a promise
In the year of election
Sister, I can't let you go
I'm like a preacher
Stealing hearts at a traveling show
For love or money, money, money
Desire

WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN

(WITH B.B KING)

E  Riff1 E Riff1  E                                Riff 1
Yeah Yeah Yeah, I was a sailor I was lost at sea,
E                                            Riff1
I was under the waves before love rescued me
E                                        Riff 1
I was a fighter I could turn on a thread,
(stop)
But I stand accused of the things I've said,

Chorus-
          A                        A       D         A
When  love comes to town,  I'm gonna jump that train,
          E                         E       A         E
When love comes to town, I'm gonna catch that flame,
E(palm muted)
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
(stop)                                        E Riff 1 etc... etc...
But I did what I did before love came to town
