Elevation - U2

Elevation

All That You Can't Leave Behind
rock U2 alternative irish pop


"Elevation" is the third track and third single release from U2's 2000 album, All That You Can't Leave Behind. Featuring a thunderous beat, a variety of sound effects on the central guitar riff, and an easy rhyming lyric for the audience to shout along with, it was highly effective in its concert-opening role on the Elevation Tour (named after the song) and became a hit in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2002, "Elevation" won "Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal". During live shows during the Vertigo Tour, it was played without drums and bass for the first verse and chorus before the rest of the band joins in. It has been played at every U2 concert since it debuted, and it is the only song for which The Edge uses his Gibson SG. The version of the song released as a single was entitled the "Tomb Raider Mix" (mixed by Paul Leary of the Butthole Surfers), differing significantly from the album version, in that it features guitars with a more 'hard rock' sound than the reggae-inspired feel of the album version. The drums in the single version are also harder, with a more traditional rock'n'roll beat. The name comes from its role in the soundtrack to the movie, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. This arrangement is how U2 have performed the song since its release.


U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin formed in 1976. The group consists of Bono (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), the Edge (lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). Initially rooted in post-punk, U2's musical style evolved throughout their career, yet has maintained an anthemic sound built on Bono's expressive vocals and the Edge's effects-based guitar textures. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal and sociopolitical themes. Show more ...

Elevation - U2

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here

At the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse
You elevate my soul

I've got no self control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
I and I, in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation

A star
Lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind

Explain all these controls
Can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation

I and I
In the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation

Love
Lift me out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you

A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation

I and I
In the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation

Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
