Exit

Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Ken Chipkin, sent in by Brandon Leniart

"This is a story about a religious man who became a very 
dangerous man when he couldn't work out the mystery of the 
hands of love."  That's how Bono described this song about 
a man who lost it and shot his wife.  It's in E minor.

You know he got the cure
You know he went astray
He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away
He wanted to believe in the hands of love

His head, it felt heavy as he came across the land
The dogs started crying like a broken hearted man
At the howlin' wind, at the howlin' wind
He went deeper into black, deeper into white
We see the stars shine like nails in the night
He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing
Hands of love like the stars, shiny, shiny from above
Hand in the pocket, finger in the steel
The pistol weighed heavy 
In his heart he could feel was beating
Beating, beating, beating
Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love, oh my love

The hands of love

     Em
You know he got the cure...but then he went astray,
    C                               G
He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away
     Em                      C          G
He wanted to believe in the hands of love...

His head it felt heavy as he cut across the land
A dog started crying like a broken hearted man
At the howling wind... the howling wind

He went deeper into black, deeper into white...
he could see the stars shine like nails in the night
He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing hands of love
Like the stars shiny, shiny... from above.

He put his hands in the pocket, his finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy, his heart he could feel
Was beating, beating, beating, beating oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love.

(He saw the hands that build could also pull down....
The hands of love)
