"[M]usic has lost the personality of human beings and musicians. It's got so shiny that it's as if there's a surface of Formica over it. And it's something that doesn't let you in."

-- Edge, 2003

The First Time Lyrics

"The First Time"

"'The First Time' is a very special song. It just seemed right that in the middle of all the chaos and blinking lights of the futurescapes there would be a very simple, poetic moment. It's the story of the prodigal son but in it the prodigal son decides he doesn't want to return. It sis about losing your faith. I haven't lost my faith but I'm very sympathetic to people who have the courage not to believe. I've seen a lot of people around me have bad experiences with religion, be so badly abused they feel they just can't go there any more, which is a shame." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

I have a lover, a lover like no other
She got soul soul soul, sweet soul
And she teach me how to sing
Shows me colours when there's none to see
Gives me hope when I can't believe
But for the first time I feel love

I have a brother when I'm a brother in need
I spend my whole time running
He spends his running after me
I feel myself goin' down
I just call and he comes around
But for the first time I feel love

My father is a rich man, he wears a rich man's cloak
Gave me the keys to his kingdom coming
Gave me a cup of gold
He said 'I have many mansions
And there are many rooms to see'
But I left by the back door
And I threw away the key
And I threw away the key
Yeah, I threw away the key
Yeah, I threw away the key

For the first time
For the first time
For the first time I feel love
