You’re The Best Thing About Me è il nuovo singolo degli U2, che uscirà in tutti i digital stores ed in rotazione radiofonica domani venerdì 8 settembre. Il nuovo brano anticipa l’uscita del nuovo album previsto nei prossimi mesi.

Il nuovo singolo è una chiara dedica d’amore che Bono Vox, effettua alla moglie Ali Hewson. Nella cover del singolo You’re The Best Thing About Me è ritratta la figlia di The Edge, Sian Evas e lo scatto è di Anton Corbijn. Il nuovo singolo farà parte del nuovo album della band “Songs of Experience“.

Il nuovo album “Songs Of Experience” arriva a tre anni di distanza dall’ultimo lavoro del gruppo di Bono Vox e compagni, che in Italia è stato certificato doppio disco di platino. I titoli dei due album prendono spunto dalla collezione di poesie “Songs Of Innocence and Experience” del poeta inglese del 18esimo secolo William Blake.

You’re The Best Thing About Me – Testo

[Verse 1: Bono]
When you look so good, the pain in your face doesn’t show
When you look so good and baby, you don’t even know
When the world is ours but the world is not your kind of thing
Full of shooting stars, brighter as they’re vanishing
Oh you’ve seen enough to know it’s children who teach
You’re still free enough to wake up on a bed or a beach

[Chorus: Bono]
You’re the best thing about me
The best thing that ever happened a boy
You’re the best thing about me
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy
You’re the best thing about me
The best things are easy to destroy
You’re the best thing about me
The best thing about me

[Verse 2: Bono]
I been crying out, “How bad can a good time be?”
Shooting off my mouth, that’s another great thing about me
I have everything but I feel like nothing at all
There’s no risky thing for a man who’s determined to fall

[Chorus: Bono]
You’re the best thing about me
The best thing that ever happened a boy
You’re the best thing about me
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy
You’re the best thing about me
The best things are easy to destroy
You’re the best thing about me

[Post-Chorus: Bono]
Why am I
Why am I walking away?
Walking away
Why am I walking away?

[Bridge: The Edge]
I can see it all so clearly
I can see what you can’t see
I can see you love her loudly
When she needs you quietly

[Chorus: Bono]
You’re the best thing about me
The best things are easy to destroy
You’re the best thing about me

[Post-Chorus: Bono]
Why am I
Why am I walking away?
Walking away
Why am I walking away?
