"The Crystal Ballroom" as written by Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul David Hewson and Larry Mullen....
Life begins with the first glance
The first kiss and the first dance
All of us are wondering why we're here
In the crystal ballroom underneath the chandelier

Wet the glass 'til the glasses sing
We punish our hearts 'til our heart bells ring
Cause where we come from we're not always kind
The human story's what love leaves behind

We're the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We're the ghosts of love
In every face
In the ballroom of the crystal light
Everyone is here with me tonight
Everyone but you

Our first chance is their last dance
Our life is shaped by another's hands
Buttoning, unbuttoning a CoCo dress
Stopping and not stopping every cold caress

Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss
Kissed by every kind of possibility
And everyone is here tonight with me

We're the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We're the ghosts of love
In every face
In the ballroom of the crystal light
Everyone is here with me tonight
Everyone but you

Everyone but you
(Everybody's here with me)
(Everybody's here with me but you)
(Everybody's here with me)
(Everybody's here with me but you)
(Everybody's here with me)
(Everybody's here with me but you)
(Everybody's here with me)
(Everybody's here with me but you)

(Born for bliss, born for this)
(Every human life begins with a kiss)
