U2 – In A Lifetime lyrics

Hard to tell
Or recognize a sign
To see me through
A warning sign

First the thunder Satisfied
Then the storm If the past it will not lie
Torn asunder The future, you and I
In the storm Get blown away

In a lifetime
In a lifetime

And as the rain it falls Begin again
Heavy in my heart As the storm breaks through
Believe the light in you So the light shines in you
Faded and worn Without color
Torn asunder in the storm Torn asunder in the storm

Unless the sound has faded from your soul
Unless it disappears

First the thunder Selfish storm
Then the storm Hold on the inside
Torn asunder One life
In the storm In the storm

In a lifetime
In a lifetime
In a lifetime
In a lifetime
