Stay (Faraway, So Close!)

Utgiven: 1993
Text:
Musik:
Green light, Seven Eleven,
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes.
You don't smoke, don't even want to.
Hey now, check your change.
Dressed up like a car crash
Your wheels are turnin' but you're upside down.
You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive.
Oh, is that what it is?

Red lights, grey morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground.
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around.
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch. to the talk shows.
And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing.

If I could stay, then the night would give you up.
Stay, and the day would keep its trust.
Stay, and the night would be enough.

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio.
With satellite television
You can go anywhere:
Miami, New Orleans
London, Belfast and Berlin.

And, if you listen, I can't call.
And, if you jump, you just might fall.
And, if you shout, I'll only hear you.

If I could stay, then the night would give you up.
Stay, and the day would keep its trust.
Stay with the demons you drowned.
Stay with the spirit I found.
Stay, and the night would be enough.

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet, there's no one around,
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground.
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground.

Tolkningar:

Sångens titel hänsyftar på Wim Wenders film Faraway, so close från 1993. Filmen är en fristående fortsättning (Wenders insisterar på att det inte är en uppföljare) av hans film Himmel över Berlin (Wings of Desire) från 1987. Båda filmerna skildrar före detta änglars liv som människor i Berlin, och hur de stapplar sig fram och försöker förstå livet när de nu blivit vingklippta. Filmen är väldigt utdragen emellanåt, men det visuella uttrycket i många av filmens scener är oemotståndligt. Allt som visas ur änglarnas perspektiv är svartvitt och allt sett med mänskliga ögon visas i färg. När jag väl listat ur hur allt detta fungerade blev konceptet bakom videon till Stay mycket tydligare (ledtråd: bandet spelar änglar och Bono blir uppenbarligen mänsklig på slutet). Texten utgår från den hjälplöshet som änglarna känner när de ser hur människornas liv spelas upp inför dem, ”och när jag rör vid dig, känner du ingenting” (and when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing). Texten handlar framförallt om maktlöshet, ”och om du ropar, kan jag bara lyssna” (and if you shout, I’ll only hear you). Änglarna känner till allt som sker men tycks inte kunna göra något för att förändra det. De har sett allt, ”du brukade stanna inne för att titta på reklaminslagen, du kunde mima till pratshowerna” (you used to stay in to watch the adverts, you could lip-synch to the talk shows), vi är som deras barn, men de kan bara se på.
