U2

How did they get started?

The band consists of Bono the singer and guitarist, The Edge singer and guitarist, Adam Clayton bass guitarist, and Larry Mullen drummer. They were only school students who joined a band based on an ad pinned in school by Mullen. The idea came to Mullen after buying his first drummer kit, he knew at that moment that he should start a band. U2 first trial to play was actually in Mullen’s kitchen in his house in Dublin. After that, U2 started performing in pubs, churches and contests until one day Jackie Heyden of CBS Records saw in them a great project, so they signed a contract with CBS after few rehearsals.

The Troubles

LYRICS

 

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control

 

You think it’s easier

To put your finger on the trouble

When the trouble is you

And you think it’s easier

 

To know your own tricks

Well it’s the harderst thing you’ll ever do

I have a will for survival

So you can hurt me and then hurt me some more

 

I can live with denial

But you’re not my troubles anymore

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

 

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

 

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control

You think it’s easier

To give up on the trouble

 

If the trouble is destroying you

You think it’s easier

But before you threw me a rope

It was the one thing I could hold on to

 

I have a will for survival

So you can hurt me then hurt me some more

I can live with denial

But you’re not my troubles anymore

 

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control

 

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control

 

God know it’s not easy

Taking on the shape of someone else’s pain

God now you can see me

I’m naked and I’m not afraid

My body’s scared and I’m not ashamed

 

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control

 

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Somebody stepped inside your soul

Little by little they robbed and stole

Till someone else was in control
