U2: North Star Lyrics Helsinki I

I think I’m pretty close here but the last verse in particular I’m not too sure about. Send along your thoughts!! Great to see this one back in the line up!

Forty-five light years
From home
Is where you are
Where I wanna be
Beside you

Looking for direction
Stars are a reflection of
The space between you and me

I can’t wait any longer
For your love
I can’t wait
I can’t wait
I can’t wait any longer
For it
I can’t wait any longer
For your love

The birds still singing for their rent
They fly above the government
It’s not a song of discontent
I’ve money now, it’s me that’s spent

Here I am, a space guy, a boy,
Looking for love and logic
In the universe
Hey hey

I can’t wait any longer
For your love
I can’t wait
I can’t wait
I can’t wait any longer
For it
I can’t wait any longer
For your love

And a day packs it in
And you watch as the sun goes down
Pray that the night
Will come quickly now
You hope
You pray
That the clouds leave the sky alone
‘Cause there’s only one light that can guide you
Guide you home

Say it, say it, say it
I can’t wait any longer
I can’t wait any longer
For your love
I can’t wait any longer
For your love
I can’t wait
I can’t wait
For your love
For your love

It’s like it takes me there beside you
‘Cause the lights all glow around you
You want it
You got it
You stay beside me like you were the son I know

      Absolutely right. I just haven’t gone back and updated this one. Probably should. Other versions of the lyrics reflect that. Thanks for posting that!

    North Star
    (my guess of what they lyrics at Helsinki might be)

    Forty-five light years
    From home
    is where you are
    and where I want to be
    Beside you now
    Looking for direction
    stars are a connection
    in the space between you and me
    I can’t wait any longer
    For your love
    I can’t wait
    I can’t wait
    I can’t wait any longer
    For it
    I can’t wait any longer
    For your love
    to be seen ??? (falsetto part)
    birds still singing for their rent
    They fly above the government
    It’s not a song of discontent
    I’ve money now it’s me that’s spent
    Here I am, a space cowboy
    Looking for love and logic
    In the universe
    yeah yeah
    I can’t wait any longer
    For your love
    I can’t wait
    I can’t wait
    I can’t wait any longer
    For it
    I can’t wait any longer
    For your love
    to be seen ???
    And the day packs it in
    And you watch as the sun goes down
    Pray that the night will come quickly now
    You hope – You pray
    that the clouds leave the sky alone
    ’cause there’s only one light that can guide you
    Guide you home, home
    say it, say it
    I can’t wait any longer
    I can’t wait any longer For your love
    I can’t wait any longer For your love
    I can’t wait
    I can’t wait
    For your love
    For your love
    It’s like the … you barely saw ????
    ’cause the lights were going …
    You want it
    You got it
    You stick (stood?) beside me to keep————-????

      After looking at yours and listening a couple of more times, I’m pretty sure he says ‘Stars are areflection of the space between you and I’.
