U2: Every Breaking Wave lyrics Zurich I

So this version seems to be an amalgamation of previous versions. I think Bono forgets the ending for each performance!!

Every breaking wave
On the shore
Tells the next one there’ll be one more

Every gambler knows
That to lose
Is what you’re really there for

Somewhere I was fearless, next
Now I’m speaking to an answer phone
Like every fallen leaf
On the breeze
Winter wouldn’t leave it alone

Ay hey now
Ay hey now

I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
Don’t know if I’m that strong
To be the one
Who needs someone

Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
Every shipwrecked soul
Knows what it is
To live without intimacy
I thought I heard the master’s voice
But it’s hard to listen while you preach

Like every breaking wave
On the shore
This is as far as I could reach

Ay hey now
Ay hey now

I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
Don’t know if I’m that strong
To be the one
Who needs someone

The waves know
We’re on the rocks
And drowning is no sin

And you know
Where my heart is
The same place yours has been

And we know
The fear of winning
So we end before we begin
