Video

Lemon è un brano musicale della band irlandese degli U2, estratta nel 1993, come secondo singolo dell’album Zooropa. Lemon è il secondo singolo estratto da Zooropa l’ottavo album in studio degli U2. Il titolo del brano, scritto come sempre da Bono, è ispirato ad un video amatoriale in cui la madre di Bono indossa un vestito giallo limone, mentre il testo vuole essere una sorta di elogio all’estro umano e alle invenzioni più significative dell’uomo.

Testo

Lemon
See through in the sunlight
She wore lemon
But never in the daylight
She’s gonna make you cry
She’s gonna make you whisper and moan
And when you’re dry
She draws her water from the stone
And I feel
Like I’m slowly, slowly, slowly slipping under
And I feel
Like I’m holding onto nothing
She wore lemon
To color in the cold grey night
She had heaven
And she held on so tight
A man makes a picture
A moving picture
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
A man captures color
A man likes to stare
He turns his money into light to look for her
And I feel
Like I’m drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore
And I feel
Like I’m swimming out to her
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Lemon
See through in the sunlight
A man builds a city
With banks and cathedrals
A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside
A man makes a car
(She’s your destination)
And builds roads to run them on
A man dreams of leaving
But he always stays behind
And these are the days
When our work has come asunder
And these are the days
When we look for something other
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
A man makes a picture
A moving picture
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
A man captures color
(She’s your destination)
A man likes to stare
There’s no sleeping there
He turns his money into light to look for her (she’s imagination)
Lemon
She is the dreamer
She’s imagination
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
