When Love Comes to Town
U2 Lyrics


I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves
Before love rescued me
I was a fighter, I could turn on a thread
Now I stand accused of the things I've said

Love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

I used to make love under a red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown
But I left her standing before love came to town

I ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream
The notes were turning blue, I was dazing in a dream
As the music played I saw my life turn around
That was the day before love came to town

When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

I was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
I threw the dice when they pierced his side
But I've seen love conquer the great divide

When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

LUCIANO LOVITO

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves
Before love rescued me
I was a fighter, I could turn on a thread
Now I stand accused of the things I've said
Love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town
I used to make love under a red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown
But I left her standing before love came to town
I ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream
The notes were turning blue, I was dazing in a dream
As the music played I saw my life turn around
That was the day before love came to town
When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town
When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town
I was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
I threw the dice when they pierced his side
But I've seen love conquer the great divide
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town



Михаил Сергопольцев

Я был моряком, я был потерян в море
Я был под волнами
До того, как любовь спасла меня
Я был борцом, я мог завестись с пол-оборота
Теперь меня осуждают за то, что я говорил

Любовь пришла в город, я собираюсь прыгнуть в этот поезд
Когда любовь приходит в город, я собираюсь поймать это пламя
Может, я был неправ, когда унижал тебя
Но я делал то, что делал, до того, как любовь пришла в город

Я раньше занимался любовью во время красного заката
Я давал обещания, что вскоре забывал
Она была бледной, как кружево на ее свадебном платье,
Но я бросил ее до того, как любовь пришла в город

Я дошел до забегаловки, когда услышал крик гитары
Звуки становились печальными, я мечтательно смотрел
Когда музыка играла, я видел, как моя жизнь перевернулась,
Что это был день, когда любовь пришла в город

Любовь пришла в город, я собираюсь прыгнуть в этот поезд
Когда любовь приходит в город, я собираюсь поймать это пламя
Может, я был неправ, когда унижал тебя
Но я делал то, что делал, до того, как любовь пришла в город

Я был там, когда они распинали моего Господа
Я схватился за ножны, когда солдат обнажил свой меч
Я бросал жребий, когда они пронзили его бок
Но я видел, что любовь преодолела пропасть

Любовь пришла в город, я собираюсь прыгнуть в этот поезд
Когда любовь приходит в город, я собираюсь поймать это пламя
Может, я был неправ, когда унижал тебя
Но я делал то, что делал, до того, как любовь пришла в город.
