"Pride (In The Name Of Love)" (live from New York)

"'Pride' started out as an ecstatic rant. We looked for a subject big enough to demand this level of emotion that was coming out. We had discovered nonviolence and Martin Luther King, not just in relation to his use of the Scriptures and his church background, but also as a solution to the Irish problems. There was a lot of emotion there, but to be honest with you, as a lyric it's daft. No, not daft. It's just not deft. It's a missed opportunity. I even get the time of Dr. King's assassination wrong. I said, 'Early morning-April four.' It was early evening." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

Let it out

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed up on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
Bring it up

Early morning, April four
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
The could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Turn off the house lights. Well, I don’t know what to say to ya tonight, but thank you for tonight.

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
