"Some Days Are Better Than Others" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
Some days are dry, some days are leaky
Some days come clean, other days are sneaky
Some days take less, but most days take more
Some slip through your fingers and onto the floor

Some days you're quick, but most days you're speedy
Some days you use more force than is necessary
Some days just drop in on us
Some days are better than others

Some days it all adds up
And what you got is not enough
Some days are better than others

Some days are slippy, other days sloppy
Some days you can't stand the sight of a puppy
Your skin is white but you think you're a brother
Some days are better than others

Some days you wake up with her complaining
Some sunny days you wish it was raining
Some days are sulky, some days have a grin
And some days have bouncers and won't let you in

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

Some days are honest, some days are not
Some days you're thankful for what you've got
Some days you wake up in the army
And some days it's the enemy

Some days are work, most days you're lazy
Some days you feel like a bit of a baby
Lookin' for Jesus and His mother
Some days are better than others

Some days you feel ahead
You're making sense of what she said
Some days are better than others

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

    General Commentobvious. Some days suck. Some days don't. It's tied into a relationship story where some days the relationship and communication are good and others it just won't work.

    General CommentReading the last 3 lines I think this must be about how most days just pass by unnoticed and routinely, whereas some days you're able to see the bigger picture. Those are the more special days where you realise life is good, finally understand something or just seem to be ahead on things.
    I think that perhaps this song is nothing more than a conclusion about how some days are better than others. I really can't find a deeper meaning behind it, unlikely as it is!

    General CommentI think eirenightshade gets it right. Some days are BETTER than others BUT we also have control over each day and each of us indivdually can, each day, choose to make it better,

    General CommentGiven the nature of 'Achtung Baby' and 'Zooropa,' I'd say this song fits in with the sensory overload, everything-is-subjective attitudes and pervasive speciousness they portray.

    I feel this song is in the vein that flows from "The Fly" to "Numb" - it's got a repeated lyrical motif and enough incongruency in its phrases to drive batshit crazy anyone who tries to make heads or tails of it. And such is the world we live in. That U2 don't explicitly moralize but just put it out there is one of the things that makes them artists.

    General CommentI think this song has a deeper meaning than just "Some days suck. Some days don't," though that message is pretty clear in the title.

    I think it's not so much about the days themselves as it is about the human perception of the days passing. As humans, WE change with the times. Sometimes our heads are foggy and we can't see anything straight, sometimes we just don't want to do anything, sometimes we wake up feeling like everything makes sense. It's all about our individual minds and our perception.

    I think the message Bono's trying to convey with the lyrics is that in life, we have very little control over how we feel on a given day and we just have to live with that. Our entire lives are going to be made up of good days and bad days, but there's not a whole lot we can do to change it. Call it the will of the Gods. This song is reassuring that, even when we have bad days, there will always be a good one lurking ahead.
