Beautiful Day
U2 Lyrics


The heart is abloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light and
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood, all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have, you don't need it now
What you don't know, you can feel it somehow
What you don't have, you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Was a beautiful day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town


You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere


You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace


It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away


You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination


You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you


It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day


Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case


See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out


It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day


Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case


What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Was a beautiful day

About ten years ago, I was living in Dublin. One particularly rainy day, I picked up some meds for a sick friend and headed to their place in a taxi. The driver, a black fellow with a thick African accent, greeted me with a massive smile, asked me how I was, and when I asked him back he replied with "I'm doing great mate, it's a beautiful day". At that point, some random song was playing on the radio, but when it switched to Beautiful Day, that guy's smile got even wider and he looked at me, saying "See mate? I told you, it's a beautiful day", drumming on his steering wheel to the rhythm all the way.

It's one of those moments I go back to when I feel really down and need a pick me up.

Beautiful story! I had an actual beautiful day today...as mundane as it was...I felt good and heard this and it reminded me how we need to appreciate the good days!
