U2 – Red Flag Day

 1,09

U2 – Red Flag Day. Bono once said (defensively) that the reason U2 didn’t write songs like they used to was because they were tired of it and wanted to do something new….but if they wanted to, they could easily. I remember shaking my head at that, thinking it was just hot air – if they could make songs like that again, why wouldn’t they? Well, they did. This song could have been just as much at home on Unforgettable Fire as here if not for that crunchy, wah guitar and effects. The songs is to UF what Fury Road was to the Mad Max series; a spiritual successor that keeps the hearts but kicks everything else into the 21st century. Bono/Edge’s call-and-echo chorus is also a smart nod to their old song writing tricks. One of the best tracks they’ve written in decades.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I am made of all that I’m afraid of
I’m most afraid of losing you
Hell’s a season
You’re the reason that I even dreamt of getting through

[Pre-Chorus]

I, I can feel your body shaking
I, I will meet you where the waves are breaking

[Chorus]

Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Baby let’s get in the water
Taken out by a wave
Where we’ve never been before

Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Baby let’s go a bit further
Paradise is a place
You can’t see when it’s yours
Red Flag Day
Red Flag Day

[Verse 2]

Sun comes here and oceanic feeling
Sky will soon be clear
Today we can’t afford to be afraid of what we fear

[Pre-Chorus]

I, I can feel your body shaking
I, I will meet you where the waves are breaking

[Chorus]

Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Baby let’s get in the water
Taken out by a wave
Where we’ve never been before

Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Baby let’s go a bit further
Paradise is a place
You can’t see when it’s yours
Red Flag Day
Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Red Flag Day

[Refrain]

Not even news today
So many lost in the sea last night
One word that the sea can’t say
Is no, no, no, no

[Chorus]

Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Red Flag Day
Baby it’s a Red Flag Day
Baby let’s get in the water
