Surrender by U2

Oh, the city’s alight
With lovers and lies
Bright blue eyes
Oh, the city is bright
It’s brighter than day tonight

Surrender, surrender

Surrender, surrender

Sadie said she couldn’t work out what it was all about
And so she let go
Now Sadie’s on the streets
And the people she meets you know
She tried to be a good girl and a good wife
Raise a good family, lead a good life
It’s not good enough
She got herself up on the 48th floor
Got to find out
Find out what she’s living for

Surrender, surrender

Surrender, surrender

Tonight

Oh, the city’s afire
A passionate flame
It knows me by name
Oh, the city’s desire
To take me for more and more
It’s in the street, getting under my feet
It’s in the air, it’s everywhere
My love for you
It’s in the things I do and say
If I want to live I got to die to myself some day

Papa sing my sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my sing my song
Papa sing my sing my sing my song

Surrender, surrender

Surrender, surrender





Seconds by U2

Takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh
Takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh
Say bye bye
Where you going to now?

Lightning flashes across the sky
East to west, do or die
Like a thief in the night
See the world by candlelight

Fall, rise and
Fall, rise and

In an apartment on Times Square
You can assemble them anywhere
Held to ransom, hell to pay
A revolution every day
USSR, GDR, London, New York, Peking
It’s the puppets, the puppets who pull the strings

Fall, rise and
Fall, rise and

Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye

It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh
Push the button and pull the plug
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh

Fall, this is the rise and fall
Fall, the rise and fall

And they’re doing the atomic bomb
Do they know where the dance comes from?
Yes, they’re doing the atomic bomb
They want you to sing along
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye



Right, that'll do. Just thought I'd share those two songs. I've always liked them, but I've really fallen in love with them lately, particularly Surrender. Some really worthwhile stuff in the meaning of that song.

Yay, school is finally over the term. Tomorrow isn't worth showing up for, so I'll just bum around home exactly how I plan on doing for the next two weeks. I'm so glad exams and such are over, because they really are anti-fun.

I got my results for the Maths B knowledge exam back today. 21 out of 31. My quick calculations reveal that to be 67.5 per cent, which is right on the border of B- and C+. I am really pissed about that. Maths C is meant to be harder than Maths B, and yet I fly through C and get terrible results like that in B? Hmm ... something's not right there. I know what it is, too - my Maths B teacher is crap. I don't feel like I've learnt anything this term. Stupid flaming moron.

In fact, my B results have been up and down all year. Term one, I got 15.5 out of 31, which is the lowest possible pass mark. Then I got 33 out of 35 in term two, which I think was top of the class, and now I'm back down to 21? What the Popmart is going on here? Stupid bloody Cappo. His teaching is really up the wop.
