ACIDPoPSoNG - Lemon by U2 (1993)

"Lemon" est la quatrième chanson et le second single de l'album Zooropa de U2, sorti en 1993. Cette chanson, plus que toutes, met en valeur la voix de fausset de Bono aidé par les voix atmosphériques de The Edge et Brian Eno. la chanson a été décrite comme "disco futuriste".


L'allusion faite aux films dans la vidéo de "Lemon" vient du fait que Bono venait de revoir sa mère dans un vieil extrait de film.


Le titre de la chanson vient justement de ce film dans lequel sa mère portait un robe jaune-citron.
Les paroles de la chanson parlent de l'usage des films afin de recréer et préserver les souvenirs

Intro: Dm Bb Gm

Dm Bb Gm
Lemon, see through in the sunlight
Dm Bb Gm
She wore lemon, never in the daylight
Dm
She's gonna make you cry
Bb Gm
She's gonna make you whisper and moan
Dm Bb Gm
But when you're dry, she draws water
from a stone

C Gm Bb
I feel like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly
slipping under

C Gm Bb
I feel like I'm holding onto nothing

She wore lemon to colour
in the cold grey night

She had heaven and she held on so tight

A man makes a picture, a moving picture

Through light projected
he can see himself up close

A man captures colour,
a man likes to stare

He turns his money into light
to look for her

And I feel like I'm drifting, drifting,
drifting from the shore
And I feel like I'm swimming out to her

F C Bb
Ohhhhhh....
F C Bb
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins

Lemon, see through in the sunlight
A man builds a city
with banks and cathedrals
A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside
(You're gonna meet her there)
A man makes a car
(She's your destination)
And builds roads to run (them) on
(You gotta get to her)
A man dreams of leaving
(She's imagination)
But he always stays behind
And these are the days
when our work has come assunder
And these are the days
when we look for something other

Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins

A man makes a picture, a moving picture
Through light projected
He can see himself up close
(Gotta meet her there)
A man captures colour
(She's your destination)
A man likes to stare
(There's no sleeping there)
He turns his money into light
(She's imagination)
To look for her
She is the dreamer
She's imagination
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
