Staring At the Sun

U2

 AmG
 Summer stretching on the grass
 FEm
 Summer dresses pass
 AmG
 In the shade of a willow tree
 FEm
 Creeps a crawling over me
 AmG
 Over me and over you
 FEm
 Stuck together with God's glue
 AmG
 It's going to get stickier too
 F
It's been a long hot summer
 G
Let's get undercover
 F
Don't try too hard to think
 G
Don't think at all

Chorus:
 C
I'm not the only one
 Am
Staring at the sun
 D
Afraid of what you'd find
 F
When you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb
I'm staring at the sun
I'm not the only one
Who's happy to go blind

There's an insect in your ear
If you scratch it won't disappear
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you want to see what the scratching brings?
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will we ever live in peace?
Because those that can't do
Often have to
Yeah, those that can't do
Often have to preach

Chorus:
To the ones
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
When you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb
I'm staring at the sun
I'm not the only one
Who'd rather go blind

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armor plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will he listen
I'm nearly great but there's something missing
I left it in the
Duty free
You never really
Belonged to me

Chorus:
You're not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find
If you stepped back inside
I'm sucking on my thumb
I'm staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who's happy to go blind


Am C D Em F G
