Song for Obama’s Walk Out to Farewell Speech 2017

For those wondering, it was U2 “City of Blinding Lights” and will probably be the song we walks off the stage as well. It was a great way for him to come out for his last major speech as President of the United States.

“City Of Blinding Lights”

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now

Neon heart, day-glow eyes
The city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
And people like us

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground

Oh you look so beautiful tonight…

Don’t look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs, purple irises the camera can’t see

I’ve seen you walk unafraid
I’ve seen you in the clothes you’ve made
Can you see the beauty inside of me?
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me?

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground

Oh you look so beautiful tonight…tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Time…time….time…won’t leave me as I am
But time won’t take the boy out of this man
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight

In the city of blinding lights,
The more you know
The less you feel
Some pray for, others steal
Blessings not just for the ones who kneel, luckily
