Kite Lyrics

Artist: U2
Album: All What You Can't Leave Behind

Something is about to give
I can feel it coming
I think I know what it means
I'm not afraid to die
I'm not afraid to live
And when I'm flat on my back
I hope to feel like I did

'Cause hardness, it sets in
You need some protection
The thinner the skin

I want you to know
That you don't need me anymore
I want you to know
You don't need me anyone, anything at all

Whos' to say when the wind will take you
Who's to know what it is will break you
I don't know which way the wind will blow
Who's to know when the time's come around
Don't wanna see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

In summer I can taste the salt in the sea
There's a kite blowing out of control on a breeze
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
You wonder what has happened to me

I'm a man, I'm not a child
A man who sees
The shadow behind your eyes

Whos' to say when the wind will take you
Who's to know what it is will break you
I don't know which way the wind will blow
Who's to know when the time's come around
Don't wanna see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

Did I waste it?
Not so much I couldn't taste it
Life should be fragrant
Roof top to the basement
The last of the rock stars
When hip hop drives the big cars
In the mean time when new media
Was the big idea
