An angel runs to ground

Angel character is going away…Red light, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire, or a victim, it depends on who’s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip sync to the talk shows
And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing

Faraway, so close, up with the static and the radio
With satellite, television, you can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin
And if you listen, I can call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout, I’ll only here you
If I could stay then the night would give you up
Stay, and the day would keep its trust
Stay, with the demons you drown
Stay, with the spirit I found
Stay, and the night would be enough
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
3 o’clock in the morning
It’s quiet, there’s no one around
Just the bang and the clatter as an angel runs to ground
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground
_ U2 (Stay, excerpt) _
