It's in your voice, I can feel it, I can tell (it)
It's in your voice, has me ringing me like a bell
Peace of mind, peace comes dropping slow
I'm in the mind, to let go of control
Spirit come on down, no I'm not coming down

In the backstreets, in the backstreets of our love
Through the locked doors, deep down, deep down is not enough
Spirit come on down, no I'm not coming down

Who can stop us now?
It's much too late
Can't slow us down?
We can't hesitate
I want a love that's hard
As hard as hate
Levitate

To be the bee, to be the bee and the flower
Before the sweetness, before the sweetness turns to sour
When freedom comes, freedom has a scent
It's like the top of a newborn baby's head
Baby we can taste it, you and I

Spirit come on down, no I'm not coming down

Who can stop us now?
Who could make us wait?
Who could slow us down?
Make us hesitate
I want a love that's hard
As hard as hate
Levitate

Oh, lift me up

Spirit come, come on down, no I'm not coming down
Spirit come on down, no I'm not coming down
Spirit come, come on down, no I'm not coming down

Coming down

    Some of my favorite U2 lyrics right there. This song has a knack to be on repeat on my cd player for hours!

    General CommentLevitate was part of the "digital album" Unreleased & Rare, which was part of the iTunes U2 Digital Boxset "released" the same day as HTDAAB. I've heard rumors that this digitial album and/or songs are finally available for purchase (through iTunes) separate from the Digital Boxset. There are some real gems. Take a look at the tracklisting:

    General CommentThe beginning sounds a bit like City of Blinding Lights. Overall it's a great song - but lots of people say it's from Pop or ATYCLB...I'm not sure which one, because it sounds partially like Pop, but more ATYCLB.

    Best U2 stuff in a long time.

    General CommentI think this song may have been from the HTDAAB sessions.

    "freedom has a scent
    It's like the top of a newborn baby's head"

    That exact lyric is in Miracle Drug.

    "Freedom has a scent
    Like the top of a new born baby?s head"

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Anyway, great song!
