Heartland - (with Brian Eno) Lyrics

by U2

See the sunrise over her skin
Don't change it
See the sunrise on her skin
Dawn changes everything

And the delta sun burns bright and violent

Mississippi and the cotton wool heat
Sixty-six the highway speaks
Of deserts dry, of cool green valleys
Gold and silver veins - shining cities

In this heartland
In this heartland
In this heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland

She feels like water in my hand
Freeway like a river cuts through this land
Into the side of love like a burning spear
And the poison rain brings a flood of fear
Through the ghostranch hills, Death Valley waters
In the towers of steel belief goes on and on

In this heartland
In this heartland
In this heartland
Heaven knows this is a heartland
