"This is a story about a religious man who became a very

dangerous man when he couldn't work out the mystery of the

hands of love." That's how Bono described this song about

a man who lost it and shot his wife. It's in E minor.

You know he got the cure

You know he went astray

He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away

He wanted to believe in the hands of love

His head, it felt heavy as he came across the land

The dogs started crying like a broken hearted man

At the howlin' wind, at the howlin' wind

He went deeper into black, deeper into white

We see the stars shine like nails in the night

He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing

Hands of love like the stars, shiny, shiny from above

Hand in the pocket, finger in the steel

The pistol weighed heavy

In his heart he could feel was beating

Beating, beating, beating

Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love, oh my love

Em

You know he got the cure...but then he went astray,

C G

He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away

Em C G

He wanted to believe in the hands of love...

 

His head it felt heavy as he cut across the land

A dog started crying like a broken hearted man

At the howling wind... the howling wind

 

He went deeper into black, deeper into white...

he could see the stars shine like nails in the night

He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing hands of love

Like the stars shiny, shiny... from above.

 

He put his hands in the pocket, his finger on the steel

The pistol weighed heavy, his heart he could feel

Was beating, beating, beating, beating oh my love

Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love.

 

(He saw the hands that build could also pull down....

The hands of love)
