The Refugee by U2

Woah, woah
She's the refugee
I see your face
I see you staring back at me
Woah, woah
She's the refugee
Her mama say one day she's gonna
Live in America
In the morning
She is waiting
Waiting for the ship to sail
Sail away
Woah, woah
Her papa go to war
He gonna fight
But he don't know what for
Woah, woah
Her papa go to war
Her mama say one day he's gonna
Come back from far away
Help me
How can you help me
In the evening
She is waiting
Waiting for her man to come
And take her by her hand
And take her to this promise land
Woah, woah
She's a pretty face
But at the wrong time
In the wrong place
Woah, woah
She's a pretty face
Her mama say one day she's gonna
Live in America
Yeah, America
Woah, woah
She's a refugee
She's coming back, she's coming
Keep you company
Woah, woah
She's a refugee
Her mama say one day she's gonna
Live in America

I've always liked this song, and this was a great album. The album after this is arguably their best (Unforgettable Fire), so they were definitely hitting their stride on this gem. Dave used to listen to this album a lot, and you know who else did? Katie Mangle the Ice Princess.Top drawer, Chris, top drawer!

i hate Irish people. They are worthless.

Well, some of those redheaded lasses are awfully cute.

Berv would not know an Irish person if they ran up an bit him on the ass. He is simply ignorant.

Katie Mangle... wow that is a name that has not even crossed my mind in years and years. I wonder where she ended up. Maybe somewhere in the artic circle since she is an ice princess.

As for U2 this is indeed one of their best albums.

Dan do you remember we went to a party just before my mission and afterward we sat in the car and sang BAD while it blasted on the stereo? "I'M WIDE AWAKE! I'M WIDE AWAKE!"

I have stopped talking to Berv about the past. He loves to pretend he remembers nothing we ever did. He thinks its funny.

Dan you are now the primary comment giver since Berv is incapeable.

Irish "people" are nothing but angry low lifes.
