YELLOW TRIANGLE                                              By Christy Moore
By Christie Moore
                                                             On a lovely bright crisp winters afternoon
The   black triangle                                         On a perfect day for walking.
The   pink triangle
The   green triangle                                         There was gunshots, stones and bullets
The   red triangle                                           On a lovely bright crisp winters afternoon
The   blue triangle                                          There was chaos, panic and death,
The   black triangle                                         Disbelief upon the faces
                                                             Fear and bewilderment
And they wore the yellow triangle                            The seconds seemed so long
                                                             They're firing bullets at us
When first they came for the criminals I did not speak       It was not supposed to be like this
Then they began to take the jews                             Awesome to behold
When they fetched the people who were member s of trades
                                                             And then our minds locked shut
unions
                                                             And then our minds locked shut
I did not speak
                                                             And then our minds locked shut
                                                             And then our minds locked shut
Then they took the bible students
Round they took the homosexuals
                                                             And there remains ..
Then they gathered up the students and the gypsies
                                                             Jackie Duddy and Willie Nash,
I did not speak                                              Gerry Donaghy, Willy McKinney
I did not speak                                              Gerard McKinney and Jim Wray
                                                             Johnny Johnston, Barney McGuigan,
Eventually they came for me there was no one left to speak   Paddy Doherty, Kevin McIlhenny
                                                             John Young, Mickey Kelly,
It happened on a Sunday afternoon
                                                             Hugh Gilmore, Micheal McDaid

                                                             Let us remember ..
YOU MADE ME THE THEIF OF YOUR HEART       THIS IS A REBEL SONG
Sinead O’Connor                           Sinead O’Connor



You made me the thief of your heart       I love you my hard Englishman
I hope you're happy now...                Your rage is like a fist in my womb
...I could never make you so...           Can't you forgive what you think I've done
you were a hard man...                    And love me - I'm your woman
no harder in this world
you made me cold and you made me hard     And I desire you my hard Englishman
and you made me the thief of your heart   And there is no more natural thing
Winter is cold...oh!                      So why should I not get loving
But you're colder still                   Don't be cold Englishman
and for the first time
I feel like you're mine
I share you with the one who will         How come you've never said you loved me
mend what falls apart                     In all the time you've known me
and turn a blind eye                      How come you never say you're sorry
to the thief of your heart                And I do
Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
you lost all                              Ah, please talk to me Englishman
you lost all                              What good will shutting me out get done
I'll never wash these clothes             Meanwhile crazies are killing our sons
I want to keep the stain                  Oh listen - Engishman
Your blood to me is precious
nor would I spill it in vain              I've honored you - hard Englishman
your spirit sings                         Now I am calling your heart to my own
though your lips never part               Oh let glorious love be done
singing only to me                        Be truthful - Englishman
the thief of your heart
Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost                             How come you've never said you loved me
Ohhh you lost all                         In all the time you've known me
lost all                                  How come you never say you're sorry
Ohhh you lost                             And I do
Ohhh you lost all
                                          I do
lost all
SUNDAY BLODDY SUNDAY                                     Sunday, Bloody Sunday
U2                                                       Sunday, Bloody Sunday

I can't believe the news today                           Wipe the tears from your eyes
Oh, I can't close my eyes and make it go away            Wipe your tears away
How long, how long must we sing this song?               Oh, wipe your tears away
How long? How long?                                      Oh, wipe your tears away
'Cause tonight we can be as one, tonight                 Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes

Broken bottles under children's feet                     Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Bodies strewn across the dead end streets                Sunday, Bloody Sunday
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall     And it's true we are immune when fact is fiction and TV
                                                         reality
Sunday, Bloody Sunday                                    And today the millions cry
Sunday, Bloody Sunday                                    We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
Sunday, Bloody Sunday                                    The real battle just begun to claim the victory Jesus won on

And the battle's just begun                              Sunday Bloody Sunday
There's many lost but tell me who has won                Sunday Bloody Sunday
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart
[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/u/u2-lyrics/sunday-

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
'Cause tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight
PRIDE (IN THE NAME OF LOVE)
U2                                                In the name of love!
                                                  What more in the name of love?
One man come in the name of love                  In the name of love!
One man come and go                               What more in the name of love?
One man come here to justify                      In the name of love!
One man to overthrow                              What more in the name of love...
In the name of love!
One man in the name of love
In the name of love!
What more? In the name of love!

One   man   caught on a barbed wire fence
One   man   he resists
One   man   washed on an empty beach
One   man   betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love!
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love!
What more? In the name of love!

...nobody like you...there's nobody like you...

Mmm...mmm...mmm...
Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride
