Lyrics by U2

Lover, I’m off the streets
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar, on fire
Desire

She’s a candle burnin’ in my room
Yeah, I’m like the needle
The needle and spoon
Over the counter, with a shotgun
Pretty soon, everybody’s got one

I’m in a fever, when I’m beside her

Desire
Desire
And the fever, gettin’ higher
Desire
Desire
Burning
Burning

She’s the dollars
She’s my protection
Yeah, she’s a promise
In the year of election
Oh sister, I can’t let you go
Like a preacher stealin’ hearts at a travellin’ show
For love or money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money

And the fever, gettin’ higher

Desire
Desire
Desire
Desire
Desire
Desire, hey
