U2 – No Line On The Horizon lyrics

I know a girl who's like the sea
I watch her changing every day for me
Oh yeah
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

One day she's still, the next she swells
You can hear the universe in her sea shells
Oh yeah
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

No, no line on the horizon, no line

I know a girl with a hole in her heart
She said infinity is a great place to start
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

She said "Time is irrelevant, it's not linear"
Then she put her tongue in my ear
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

No, no line on the horizon
No, no line
No, no line on the horizon
No, no line

The songs in your head are now on my mind
You put me on pause
I'm trying to rewind and replay

Every night I have the same dream
I'm hatching some plot, scheming some scheme
Oh yeah
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I'm a traffic cop, rue du Marais
The sirens are wailing but it's me that wants to get away
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

No line on the horizon
No, no line
No, no line on the horizon
No, no line

    The person in the song was seduced by an irresistable temptation. Like the ocean climate, he has no control over her advances. But he believes in his own power to be in control of his life and his dreams tell him this. He is trying to get away from the "sirens" even though he craves those very sirens seducing him. After the experiences, he wants to go back to his regular life. Saying there is "no line on the horizon" is saying we go to great lengths to say how we are not at fault for our bad choices. We even say that there is no line. It continues to bother his head and he wants to get away. Perhaps the sirens will again calm the storm in his head.
