U2 – The Showman (Little More Better)

 1,09

U2 – The Showman (Little More Better). U2 cooking up some Beach Boys, with a helping heaping of their early Boy heydays (most specifically ‘A Celebration’). I honestly don’t know how Bono did it but he sounds exactly like he did back in the day, with his sliding voice and shouts – I can’t imagine any U2 fan not having a smile on their face when it happens. Fun song, light-and-fluffy and accomplishing everything it sets out to. That said…I think it’s the most forgettable song on the album. Not a bad song – just not remarkable in any real way. How should I put this? I wouldn’t turn the song off if it came on, but I wouldn’t really go out of my way to find it either. It’s a ‘oh yeah, this is a cool song. I forgot it was on here’ track, unfortunately.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Baby’s crying cause it’s born to sing
Singers cry about everything
Still in the playground falling off a swing
But you know that I know

[Verse 2]

Walk through the room like a birthday cake
When I am all lit up, I can’t make a mistake
And there’s a level of shallow that you just can’t fake
But you know that I know

[Pre-Chorus]

Oh you don’t care
But you know I’m there

[Chorus]

You think you look so good
A little more better
Look so good
Just a little more little more
Look so good
That’s what’s gonna get you
Look so good
Just a little more little more

[Verse 3]

You know you’re chasing the sunlight
That’s why I’m stayin’ up all night
You think you look so good
A little more better
Look so good
A little more

[Verse 4]

It is what it is but it’s not what it seems
This screwed up stuff is the stuff of dreams
I got just enough low self esteem
To get me where I want to go

[Verse 5]

The showman gives you front row to his heart
The showman prays his heartache will chart
Making a spectacle of falling apart
Is just the start of the show

[Per-Chorus]

Oh you don’t care
But you know I’m there

[Chorus]

You think you look so good
A little more better
Look so good
Just a little more little more
Look so good

[Bridge]

That’s what’s gonna get you
Look so good
Little more, little more

[Verse 6]

I’ll be chasing the sunlight
That’s why I’m staying up all night
I lie for a living, I love to let on
But you make it true when you sing along

[Chorus]

(2x)
