U2 & Pavarotti – Miss Sarajevo

U2 & Pavarotti – Miss Sarajevo

Is there a time for keeping your distance
A time to turn your eyes away
Is there a time for keeping your head down
For getting on with your day

Is there a time for kohl and lipstick
A time for cutting hair
Is there a time for high street shopping
To find the right dress to wear

Here she comes
Heads turn around
Here she comes
To take her crown

Dici che il fiume [You say that the river]
Trova la via al mare [finds the way to the sea]
E come il fiume [and like the river]
Giungerai a me [you will come to me]
Oltre i confini [beyond the borders]
E le terre assetate [and the dry lands]
Dici che come fiume [You say that like a river]
Come fiume… [like a river…]

Here she comes
Heads turn around
Here she comes
To take her crown

Is there a time to run for cover
A time for kiss and tell
Is there a time for different colours
Different names you find it hard to spell

Is there a time for first communion
A time for East 17
Is there a time to turn to Mecca
Is there time to be a beauty queen

Here she comes
Beauty plays the clown
Here she comes
Surreal in her crown

Dici che il fiume [You say that the river]
Trova la via al mare [finds the way to the sea]
E come il fiume [and like the river]
Giungerai a me [you will come to me]
Oltre i confini [beyond the borders]
E le terre assetate [and the dry lands]
Dici che come fiume [You say that like a river]
Come fiume… [like a river…]

L’amore giungerà [the love will come]
L’amore… [the love…]
E non so più pregare [And i don’t know how to pray anymore]
E nell’amore non so più sperare [and in love i don’t know how to hope anymore]
E quell’amore non so più aspettare [and for that love i don’t know how to wait anymore]

Is there a time for tying ribbons
A time for Christmas trees
Is there a time for laying tables
And the night is set to freeze
