"When the Stars Go Blue (Ryan Adams cover)" as written by and R Adams....
[Bono] Dancing where the stars go blue
[Andrea] Dancing where the evening fell
[Bono] Dancing in your wooden shoes
[Andrea] In a wedding gown

[Bono] Dancing out on 7th street
Dancing through the underground
[Andrea] Dancing little marionette
[Both] Are you happy now?

Where do you go when you're lonely?
Where do you go when you're blue?
Where do you go when you're lonely ? I'll follow you...
[Bono] When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
[Andrea] When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
[Bono] When the stars go blue

Laughing with your pretty mouth
[Andrea] Laughing with your broken eyes
[Bono] Laughing with your lover's tongue
[Both] In a lullaby

Where do you go when you're lonely?
Where do you go when you're blue?
Where do you go when you're lonely ? I'll follow you...
[Bono] When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
[Andrea] When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
[Bono] When the stars go blue

[Andrea] When the stars go blue (bluuuuue)
(bluuuuue) when the stars go (bluuuuue)

[Bono] When the stars go blue

[Both] Where do you go [Bono] when you're lonely?
[Andrea] Where do you go when you're blue yeah?
Where do you go when you're lonely ? I'll follow you...

    General CommentThis is a Ryan Adams song and while I adore his version, Andrea and Bono bring such a new and mystical light to his lyrics. It's funny because everytime I hear this song on the radio with my mom and it comes to the part where everyone is cheering I yell, "They're dancing now! They're dancing!" My mom thinks I am crazy, but I love it!!

    General CommentThis song is on the Live in Dublin album. This song is probably their best song. I mean Andrea Corr has the best voice i have ever heard. And with her duet wtih Bono is simply mind boggling. As for what the song means, i think it means that two people are agreeing to be there for each other whenever the other is going through some hard times in his/her life. Beautiful song.

    General CommentI ddin't know the meaning of this song until my close friend, whose a pretty smart science guy told what it meant. Well...to understand this son, you have to first understand what happends when a stars goes blue. Basically it signifies it's death. And as you know, it takes millions of years for a star to die. So....When the Stars go Blue is just a poetic way of saying I'll love you until my life and past my life... pretty cool huh

    General CommentI agree with syoung, I really love this song and although the original version by Ryan Adams is really cool, I can't help but say that it sounds more romantic and fresh sung by Andrea and Bono, cos their voices combined in a duet are just mind blowing!

    General Commentryan adams > u2, bono, corrs... and every other group/artist who has made an attempt at a remake of this song. listen not only to the 'gold' version (ryan adams' original album version) but also to some of the live versions off of his 'bedhead' bootlegs and you will become aware of just how conscious he is of the feelings and emotions he intended on conveying through his tonality in the ways he sings.
