See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you

    General CommentYes I was the one who posted the lyrics .

    A beautiful song from U2 and sung brilliantly by Tom.
    I was surprised that noone put up the lyrics for it.

    General Commentgeezuz keane recreates this song beautifully!
    the meaning tho.. hm...
    all i can gather is that he is in a catch 22 relationship- cant live with or without that person.
    he loves her so much that he cant leave even though the relationship is taking its toll on him, and this song is just expressing his sadness i guess
