U2 - Bad (Live From The National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, UK / 1984) UNFORGETTABLE FIRE TOUR WIDE AWAKE IN AMERICA 1985


The video for the live version of Bad, featured on the 1985 EP Wide Awake In America, was filmed by Barry Devlin during the European leg of The Unforgettable Fire tour in late 1984.

BAD

If you twist and turn away.
if you tear yourself in two again. 
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would let it go. 
Surrender, dislocate. 

If I could throw this lifeless life-line to the wind. 
Leave this heart of clay, see you walk, walk away
Into the night, and through the rain
Into the half light and through the flame. 

If I could, through myself, set your spirit free 
I'd lead your heart away, see you break, break away 
Into the light and to the day. 

To let it go and so to find away. 
To let it go and so find away. 
I'm wide awake. 
I'm wide awake, wide awake.
I'm not sleeping. 

If you should ask, then maybe 
They'd tell you what I would say 
True colours fly in blue and black 
Blue silken sky and burning flag. 
Colours crash, collide in blood-shot eyes. 

If I could, you know I would If I could, I would let it go. 
This desperation, dislocation 
Separation, condemnation 
Revelation, in temptation 
Isolation, desolation 

Let it go and so to find away 
To let it go and so to find away 
To let it go and so to find away 
I'm wide awake, 
I'm wide awake, wide awake 
I'm not sleeping 
Oh no, no, no.
