Here’s the music video for U2’s “Window in the Skies,” their new single released on New Year’s Day. I was alerted to it via Jeffery Overstreet’s blog, one of my trusted sources for movie/music reviews and other commentary on pop culture. The editing work on this video is amazing. Think of all the hours put in to find the right clips to create that lip and instrument synching effect!

The shackles are undone
The bullet’s quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun
Will keep us when its done
The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The GRAVE is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
What it’s doing to me

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love well love may please
The soul in a striptease
Hate brought to its knees
The sky over our head
We can reach it from our bed
If let me in your heart
And out of my head

Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
What it’s doing to me

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Please don’t ever let me out of here

I’ve got no shame
Oh no, oh no

Oh can’t you see what love has done
Oh can’t you see
Oh can’t you see what love has done
What it’s doing to me

I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder you and I
Our love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

Oh can’t you see what love has done
To every broken heart
Oh can’t you see what love has done
For every heart that cries

Love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

Oh can’t you see
