U2 - Last Night On Earth Lyrics




She feels the ground is giving way
Bur she thinks we're better off that way
The more you take the less you feel
The less you know the more you believe
The more you have the more it takes today"

YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
SHE DOESN'T CARE WHAT IT'S WORTH
SHE'S LIVING LIKE IT'S THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

She's not waiting on a saviour to come
She's at a bus-stop with the NEWS OF THE WORLD
And the sun sun here it comes
She's not waiting for anyone

YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
she knows just what it's worth
SHE'S LIVING LIKE IT'S THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

Slipping away... slip slide...
(The clock tells her that time is slipping... )
The world turns and we get dizzy
(Minute hands and second sticking... )
Slipping away
(There's something going on she might be missing
the world turns and we get dizzy
Is it spinning for you the way it's spinning for me)

She's living living next week now
You know she's going to pay it back somehow
The future is here at last
The past is too uncomfortable

YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
SHE ALREADY KNOWS IT HURTS
SHE'S LIVING LIKE IT'S THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

U2 Last Night On Earth Comments
  1. Brandon Moore

    U2 Last night on Earth is one of my favorite song from the album Pop!

  2. Freddie Figueroa

    Este es un gran disco de U2 .. Los traeria por primera vez Argentina (1998) en su gira Pop mart. :)

  3. Edgardo Gregorini

    The last great album of U2. They should be have been This way forever

  4. Jeff Oliver

    Even U2 view this as being their worst album, it didn't connect with the fans and when they came back with the 'ATYCLB' album in 2000 they had to try and win back many of the fans they had lost. Larry Mullen said in 2000: "I'm under no illusion about the amount of ground we've got to make up." Bono said in 2000: "we're reapplying for the job of the best band in the world" - he realised things had not connected property with the fans with this album and that many fans viewed them as below-par. The only project the band did that a band member liked less than this album was the 'Passengers' album in 1993, the 5-piece band created by U2 and their producer Brian Eno. Three of U2 liked it but Larry hated it.

    "Before we started writing the next record," pictured the Red Rocker, "I was hoping the brothers would understand my desire to shake things up musically. I was hoping Alex would hear something in the sound of dance music that I don't understand. I really tried to get him interested in the direction I was wanting to take. Imagine Eddie's playing guitar to this great new beat, and I'm singing lyrics that aren't corny. The position I was coming from was this. "Edward, you are one of the greatest rock and roll musicians ever from the beginning of time. I want to be that good of a lyricist. You and I together will write the greatest rock and roll songs ever. "I'm telling you, we would have accomplished something extraordinary. Believe it or not, U2 ended up doing the exact same thing I wanted to do on their 1997 album. If all this shit hadn't gone down between us, we would have beaten them to the punch It really was unfortunate.

    Their talent died after this album. U2 is unrecognizable now. I guess now I understand old people who talk about how great The Doors were and stuff.

  8. Depret Flavien

    Am I the only one who thinks this U2 song, minus the synths and the more melodic elements, has got some grunge leanings on it ?

  9. Trumpty Dumbty

    U2's flawed masterpiece. Terrible album cover, rushed to market unfinished, Please, Gone, Wake Up Dead Man just don't work on the record and aren't all that strong although Please has a great lyric. Mofo and Do you feel Loved cancel each other out at the start being songs 2. and 3. Should have listened to Adam Clayton and given it another 6 months. But Discoteque, Mofo, God will send his angels, Staring at the Sun, Last Night On Earth, Playboy Mansion, Miami and Velvet Dress are eight great tracks that work together and that's good enough for me. Actually, Staring at the sun doesn't work with the other tracks, but it's just so strong!!!

  10. Ryan Mclaughlin

    A. Place in time nothing but best

  11. James H

    POP has some great songs, I think it just got buried and misunderstood in the late 90's, they rushed the album out and didn't give people time to really digest it before touring, great song

  12. Eliezer Queres

    YOU GOTTA GIVE IT AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!

  13. Doctor Music

    Great album...some tracks are crap....

  14. Larry Hunley

    My favorite U2 album, whatever that's worth.

  15. D Roman

    I love this song. Pop is so underrated, it's almost criminal. For me, "Pop" is one of U2's very best albums. I'll go even further and say that "Pop" was their last truly innovative album where U2 really pushed their musical boundries. This album is solid with many great songs, on par with "War", "The Joshua Tree, and "Achtung Baby".

  16. Allison Bauch

    This song is iconic. It's got a killer groove and Bono's singing his guts out. And the Edge that rockin guitar. Who would dislike this? Complaining about U2 sounding like shit. Now people are bitching and moaning that U2 sounds repetitive. Shut the hell up. Dig the beat and get over it.

  17. Renato Vaz

    disco lixo

  18. Peter Houle

    She feels the ground is giving way
    Bur she thinks we're better off that way
    The more you take the less you feel
    The less you know the more you believe
    The more you have the more it takes today"

    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    SHE DON'T CARE WHAT IT'S WORTH
    SHE'S LIVING LIKE IT'S THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
    THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

    She's not waiting on a saviour to come
    She's at a bus-stop with the NEWS OF THE WORLD
    And the sun sun here it comes
    She's not waiting for anyone

    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    well, she don't care what it's worth
    SHE'S LIVING LIKE IT'S THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

    Slipping away... slip slide...
    (The clock tells her that time is slipping... )
    The world turns and we get dizzy
    (Minute hands and second sticking... )
    Slipping away
    (There's something going on she might be missing
    the world turns and we get dizzy
    Is it spinning for you the way it's spinning for me)

    She's living, living next week now
    You know she's going to pay it back somehow
    she hasn't been to bed in a week
    she'll be dead soon, and then she'll sleep

    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    YOU GOT TO GIVE IT AWAY
    SHE ALREADY KNOWS IT HURTS
    SHE'S LIVING LIKE IT'S THE LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
    LAST NIGHT ON EARTH
    LAST NIGHT ON EARTH

    Allison Bauch

    Thank you so much for typing the lyrics. It was very nice of you. I appreciate it.

    Yazmin Iris Hernandez Hernandez

    Gracias is nice nice

  19. Nunzio Mazzitelli

    Miglior album degli U2

  20. Mino Elevation

    You make me laugh with idiotic comments as if song or album are severely underrated not appreciated enough.. try to understand that u2 pop or zooropa or achtung baby are music not for the masses, average people i mean, they are for the people whose mind is not common and they are for the people with wondering mind and there are not many of them out there, therefore it can’t be liked as much as “beutiful day” ( good really good pop) hence that’s why it was less appreciated worldwide. And it’s not a bad thing it’s good, it’s reality we are all different😉

  21. Paul Young

    Can't help but wonder,if they had stayed on the trajectory of ab,z,and pop,what treasures we would be commenting about?

    Paul Young

    @YazmanianDevil it's really awesome live!,and zooropa,and electrical storm also

    YazmanianDevil

    @Paul Young Electrical Storm is gorgeous!

    Paul Young

    @YazmanianDevil live versions of"please","gone"are soul ripping

    YazmanianDevil

    @Paul Young They really are. But "live is where they live". So if a track is crazy on the album, it will be off the chain and in need of a leash live!!!!

    Paul Young

    @YazmanianDevil couldn't argue that at all,I'm 56 and have been listening from the beginning,and I love how live versions have grown and expanded, BTW I'm from the south,so I'm r and b,blues, alternative rock,my favorite songs on pop are do you feel loved, discotheque,gone,in that order

  22. YazmanianDevil

    One of their best albums IMO

    Edgardo Gregorini

    Totally agree

  23. Larry Hunley

    Honestly, maybe their best album.

  24. Giorgio c

    I decided to give a listen afte probably 20 years.. I remember how this album was considered a scandal.. u2 cheating music... But probably this was the last album from a "living" band.. after this they stopped experimenting and went on doing "normal" U2 music, a little like the Stones..Both have released good albums in the last 20 years (Stones better... U2 only good singles probably) but they stopped tryng to find new directions.

  25. Ron Niswonger

    top shelf

  26. DR Evil

    biggest underrated album ever how dare u2 try something different

  27. Liszt 00

    I love Pop

  28. Peter Lightning

    This album is pretty good. At least half of it anyway. I think the problem with it is that it's too radical compared to other U2 albums. It's insanely slow and mellow in some areas, THEN wildly experimental on others. It's a strange mix of songs. I don't like listening to the Pop album from start to finish. But I do very much like listening to the individual interesting songs on it from time to time.

    DR Evil

    my favourite u2 album but your right it runs out of steam half way through after this song

    Nick Kabbabe

    @DR Evil The second half is better than the first half; 'Please' and 'Wake Up Dead Man' are superb.

    DR Evil

    @Nick Kabbabe the whole album is great its just that it was marketed as a pop album so people were expecting just that.this is the album that made me a fan of them i wasnt really interested with them before that and i remember when their first album was out so i speak with some authority

  29. Reongaro

    Perfect driving song

  30. acouniha

    Pop is a criminally underrated U2 album.

    YazmanianDevil

    @Paul Young I believe it to be I knew it then, I knew it now.

    Yellow Jackboots

    I wholeheartedly concur.

    ULTRA Mateo

    fuck yeah! at least 5 of the songs in this album is classics,real gems

    Nick Kabbabe

    It's an astonishing piece of work; absolutely brilliant. Pop is in my 5 favourite U2 albums and part of reason why I think their 90's work is their best.

    Brandon Moore

    @acouniha I couldn't agree with you more U2 Album Pop is a criminally underrated album!

  31. hero ish

    I like Pop

  32. luis ortiz solorzano

    20 years ago this week, came out the last great u2 album in 1997 i remember that year was wonderfull.

    SpaceOrbison

    I was there.. holy shit its been 20 years

    Edgardo Gregorini

    Yeah, underrated for them

  33. Chayatano Valdesatano

    i dont know why people say this is U2s worst album ever,
    its one of the best
    maybe it came out at the wrong time
    but bad is not.

    visiclimacus

    this is the song i like most of U2

    Uroš Milič

    Chayatano Valdesatano it was a bit rushed as they booked arenas for the popmart tour before finishing the album

    MrParadroid

    Worst is The Joshua Tree.

    Last Rose Of Summer

    Most of these songs sound brilliant live, not so good here.

    Jeff Oliver

    Even U2 view this as being their worst album, it didn't connect with the fans and when they came back with the 'ATYCLB' album in 2000 they had to try and win back many of the fans they had lost.

  34. Tomi Adewole

    Awesome! This is the version for which I was searching

    Martin Piñeyro

    Justin Reed Alive one, maybe
