    U2

     

    Dm       C                           G (x2)

    Dm                               C
    And love is not the easy thing the only baggage you can bring is    
    G (x2)

    (w/ Riff 1:)

    D  A  G  Em

    D  A  G  E

     

    D               A                   G            Em

    And if the darkness is to keep us apart

    D               A                         G                 Em

    And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off

    D         A                                  G                     Em                    D

    And if your glass heart should crack, and for a second you turn back

    Oh no, be strong

     

    CHORUS 1:   (w/ Riff 1)

    D            A

    No they can't even feel it

    D            A

    Walk on, walk on

    G              E

    Stay safe tonight

     

    D                        A                   G                            Em

    You're packing a suitcase for a place, none of us has been

    D                     A                   G            Em

    A place that has to be believed  to be seen

    D                        A                   G                      Em

    You could have flown away, a singing bird in an open cage

                  D         A                 E (x2)

    Who will only fly, only fly, for freedom

     

    CHORUS 2:   (w/ Riff 1)

    D            A

    Walk on, walk on

                  G

    What you've got they can't deny it

            Em

    Can't sell it, can't buy it

    D            A

    Walk on, walk on

    G              E

    Stay safe tonight

     

                D

    And I know it aches

                    A

    And your heart it breaks

                 E (x2)

    You can only take so much

    hard to know what it is if you’ve never had one
    D    A
    Home
               G (x2)            
    I can't say where it is, but I know I’m going
    D    A
    Home 
                               E  (x2)
    That's where the hurt is
    D                                         A
    And I know it aches and your heart it breaks
     
                Bm (x2)
    You can only take so much
    Walk on
     
    Em  G  D  A (Prog. x2)

     

                        Em                        G 

    all that you fashion, all that you make,

                          D                      A

    all that you build, all that you break,

                        Em                        G 

    all that you measure, all that you steal

                        D                A

    all this you can leave behind.

                      Em                    G

    All that you reason (It’s only time)

                      D                    A

    All that I’m feeling on my mind

    Em        G                                     D      A

                   You’ve got to leave it behind

                                        Em        G 

    You’ve got to leave it behind
