O.S.T : Faraway So Close 1993

Director Wim Wenders assembled a modern rock Who's Who for this soundtrack, which includes tracks by U2 (both of which also turn up on their Zooropa album), Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Jane Siberry, and Laurie Anderson. The result is a moody, evocative set that works with the film and as a consistent collection of contemporary songs.


(Almost half of the album is given over to selections from Laurent Pettitgand's low-key score.)
(Review by William Ruhlmann)




Faraway, So Close! (German: In weiter Ferne, so nah!) is a 1993 film by German director Wim Wenders.The film is a sequel to Wenders' 1987 film Wings of Desire.
Cassiel and Raphaella, two angels, observe the busy life of reunited Berlin. Due to their divine origin, they can hear the thoughts of the people around them, and try to console a dying man.

THE WANDERER - U2 with Johnny Cash
(Written by U2/Lyrics by Bono)


I went out walking
Through streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones
Saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul
I went out walking
Under an atomic sky
Where the ground won't turn
And the rain it burns
Like the tears when I said goodbye
Yeah I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering

I went drifting
Through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk
Or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in
I stopped outside a church house
Where the citizens like to sit
They say they want the kingdom
But they don't want God in it

I went out riding
Down that old eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
Looking for my own name

I went with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you

I went out there
In search of experience
To taste and to touch
And to feel as much
As a man can
Before he repents

I went out searching
Looking for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who would sit at his father's right hand
I went out walking
With a bible and a gun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was sure I was the one
Now Jesus, don't you wait up
Jesus, I'll be home soon
Yeah I went out for the papers
Told her I'd be back by noon

Yeah I left with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Looking for you

Yeah I left with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
