U2 - If God Will Send His Angels Lyrics




Nobody else here baby no one else here to blame
No one to point the finger...
It's just you and me and the rain
Nobody made you do it, no one put words in your mouth
Nobody here taking orders when love took a train heading south
It's the blind leading the blond
It's the stuff the stuff of country songs

HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS
AND IF GOD WILL SEND A SIGN
AND IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS
Would everything be alright?

God has got his phone off the hook
Babe would he even pick up if he could?
It's been a while since we saw that child
Hangin' round this neighbourhood
See his mother dealing in a doorway
See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sister's eyes are blister ...
THE HIGH STREET never looked so low

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the cops collecting for the cons
So where is the hope and where is the faith ... and the love?
What's that you say to me
Does love... light up your Christmas tree?
The next minute you're blowing a fuse
And the cartoon network turns into the news

HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS
AND IF GOD WILL SEND A SIGN
WELL IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS
WHERE DO WE GO

Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door

It's the stuff it's the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on

HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS
I SURE COULD USE THEM HERE RIGHT NOW
WELL IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS
WHERE DO WE GO...

U2 If God Will Send His Angels Comments
  1. anjar kusuma

    this is the first song that made me fall in love with U2

    and whenever i listen to it again and again, makes me fall in love much harder to U2

  2. Lucy Michela

    So basically this movie was my mum's favourite during my childhood. Like we used to watch this monthly sometimes. And she'd often play the ending to the VHS for Iris and this song but I could not think of the title at all. It was only when i remembered Bono was the singer that it came to me. So happy to have finally found this omg

  3. catynna nieto

    Beatiful song year 1998 😘

  4. Pakalolofree

    And I don't have to know how, and I don't have to what... I don't wanna promises, cause I don't wanna lies...

  5. Andrew Flood

    I LOVE THIS SONG !!!!

  7. Jkm

    Man, what a song! What an album!

  8. Xfiles Foxisdead

  14. Dirk B

    Best song on the album.

  15. LoLzZ85

    The album version is better, but really lovely underappreciated U2 song

  16. Ross Connelly

    "where do we go!" A very underated tune 🤗

  17. Alejandro Ortega

    From 3:48 is 10000 times better than the album version

  18. andreass klarc

    muy buena rola!!!U2 te queremos en México para deleitarnos con tu música.

  19. Mattrick Swayze

    Nobody else here baby
    No-one else here to blame
    No-one to point the finger
    It's just you and me and the rain.

    Nobody made you do it
    No one put words in your mouth.
    Nobody here taking orders
    When love took a train heading south.
    It's the blind leading the blond
    It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs.

    Hey, if God will send his angels
    And if God will send a sign
    And if God will send his angels
    Would everything be alright?

    God's got his phone off the hook, babe
    Would he even pick up if he could?
    It's been a while since we saw that child
    Hangin' round this neighbourhood.

    See his mother dealing in a doorway
    See Father Christmas with a begging bowl.
    And Jesus' sister's eyes are a blister
    The High Street never looked so low.

    It's the blind leading the blond
    It's the cops collecting for the cons.
    So where is the hope and
    Where is the faith and the love?
    What's that you say to me
    Does love light up your Christmas tree?
    The next minute you're blowing a fuse
    And the cartoon network turns into the news.

    If God will send his angels
    And if God will send a sign
    Well if God will send his angels
    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?

    Jesus never let me down
    You know Jesus used to show me the score.
    Then they put Jesus in show business
    Now it's hard to get in the door.

    It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
    But I guess it was something to go on.
    Hey, if God will send his angels
    I sure could use them here right now
    Well, if God will send his angels...

    Where do we go?
    Where do we go?

  20. M2 M

    And I don't want to promise because I don't want to lie.....

  21. Jason Garfield Bardy

    Video was shot at a diner outside of Detroit, Highland Park.

  22. Sheavon Marryshow

    This song has meaning. But yet Bono believes the devil.

  23. Dennis Xavier

    Ending.... :’)

  24. bennymutant

    what happened to U2?

  25. Auna Blessing

    great xmas song

  26. flatearthrandy

    LUKE 21;36

  27. samuell drifit

    uma das minhas do u2 mais queridissima amo este som

  28. Serena Marino

    when god ll send his angels

  29. Picnicl

    I know that U2 feel that, if recorded differently , this could have been huge. But I feel that God was with you on this one, appealing to your humour, and wanted If God Will Send His Angels to be one of the greatest songs by U2 or anyone else that - that relatively few people will ever hear unless you choose to have faith and play it at your concerts because the song deserves it and hardcore fans with intellect and emotion deserve it.

  30. Mark Otto

    POP: the last (wonderful) experimental album of u2

    Rebeca Linares

    YES POP WAS WONDERFUL. MIAMI AND THE PLAYBOY MANSION ARW WONDERFUL.

  31. Bruno P.

    which movie?

    dadang nur rahman safari

    City of angels

  32. Underground906

    This is the most beautiful song written after the 60's.

    Picnicl

    That's a bold statement. Many might wonder how many songs by great artists you've heard to make such a statement, or under what criteria. But I agree with you.

  33. Nehwon Wondor

    Of Course, I Remember This Music Video in a Movie Edit and They Shoted by A Diner.

  34. Fabricio Moscattini

    U2 não durmo sem ouvir 😉

  35. Anto dvn

    i love this song, i love POP!

  36. Bekim Maxim

    this song is the best i have ever heard in my enter life and is way under rated or appreciated by public, , watch the original video and look how he sing it and his eyes full of faith, a legend by all means.

  37. xxchanaxx

    I miss this U2 all strong and fun and cool videos

  38. Jodie Cridlebaugh

    Thank you💙😏

  39. Alan May

    it's dreamy and its bluesy. Like.

  40. creates100

    " then they put Jesus in show business, now it's hard to get in the door"

  41. Mekk YumYum

    That's my Grandmother Hattie Holt in the beginning :10 of the video with her friend Earl. I miss her so much so pleased to have this video to watch. Thank you!

    Jose Rafael Minera

    Mekk YumYum, oh man... you can remember her forever with this video...

    The queen ant running on the roof of the bus is my daughter.. 🐜🐜🐜🐜👑👑👸👸🐜🐜🚍🚌🚌🚍🚌🐜🐜🐜🐜🏃🏃🏃🏃🌙🌙🌕😀

  42. Roselaine Toledo

    Que música mais linda , que bom que esse vídeo voltou pois sempre procurei e não encontrava mais

  43. Luciene Melo

    Adoro esta versão... é a mesma do disco do filme City of Angels... adoro

  44. Molossus

    POP was the peak of U2 for innovation and sound.

  45. Laura canosa garcia

    tremenda canción nunca pasa de moda :)

  46. Annalisa 2012

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  47. Jack Hood

    Video is 20 years old today...wow

    fred fredburger

    I try not to think about that. I was 18 when this came out so It's woven into my memories of my youth.

  48. Marcus Crassus

    POP was a masterpiece of epic proportions. Unfortunately it was 10 years ahead of its time.

    Samedi005

    Derek VZ Time will give you the reason. This song is one of those: Fucking poetry inductors

    NZ RugbyVidz

    POP never came to NZ and we had to wait until 2006 for them to return. POP was ok but it wasn't a rave...

    1970brenz

    But the album is different to a tour. They probably needed to get radio play. There was still radio back then, hehe!

    John Gleeson

    I can't believe it was ever in doubt. The music press is poison if they wrote this off just because it broke the U2 mold. It's a stunning masterpeice.

    Rebeca Linares

    *Rolling Stone gave Pop 4 1/2 Stars and said "With Pop U2 has defied the odds and made some of the GREATEST MUSIC OF THEIR LIVES. Pretty heroic stuff think about it"
    *Q gave Pop 5 Stars and Said "Pop maybe the best U2 album ever, but maybe fans arent ready for it".
    Pop topped the charts in 32 countries, a guiness record at the time.


    After that some press started a campaign inventing it had mixed reviews and that the record had stalled in sales. That news confused the people, the most stupid ones after all, and that idea won in the end. Even U2 were affected and instead of defending Pop as it was said that it wasnt ready and shit ike that, even recording some new mixes.
    U2´s attituted towards Pop hasnt helped at all.
    POP IS A MASTERPIECE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS YES.
    AND MIIAMI AND THE PLAYBOY MANSION ARE WONDERFUL.
    AND THE ORIGINAL DISCOTHEQUE, GONE AND STARING AT THE SUN ARE GREAT NOT THAT BEST OF 90-00 MIXES.

  49. lucas lopez

    Este tema me voló la cabeza, siempre U2 con sus melodias y letras profundas

  50. Samantha Brotto

    it´s the blind, leading the blonde...

  52. E4T6

    Jesus never let me down, you know, Jesus used to show me the score.

  53. Emerson GF

    Linda musica

  54. jose luiz pereira santos

    THANK YOU SO MUCH

  55. agentepeppe Pino

    canzone di spessore in un album sottovalutato...forse perché dopo il superlativo achtung baby era difficile fare qualcosa che lo eguagliasse

  56. The Vox

    My favorite U2 album... perhaps favorite album in general... BEYOND AMAZING and really gets under the skin.

  57. David Gonzalez

    Piercingly beautiful ending

  58. sandra maria teixeira santos

    THANK YOU U2 I AM HERE

  59. 63worldseries

    POP: the most forgotten and underrated U2 album of all time. #PopMart #PopMartian

    Mr. Coin

    I 💗 this fucking album too

    nordisch byNature

    Quite the contrary.. It's one of the crappest albums ever produced I'm afraid to say...

    Xfiles Foxisdead

    The last good rock album...after pop U2 went downhill with pop rock crap and Coldplay wannabies

    Albérico Souza Coelho

    Wow, I can't stand listening to this song without touching my soul! it is a bad excuse for the expression, only that there is no feeling for not hearing U2 and not getting emotional.

    Albérico Souza Coelho

    U2 fez parte da minha formação humana e cidadão...Não tenho vergonha de falar um garoto pobre da favela e do interior curtir o oposto e ser considerado doido.

  60. Emmanuel Esteban

    Beautiful song

  61. ze luiz oliveira silva

    THAK YOU HERE I AM

  62. A-MUSIC
