"Love Is Blindness"

"'Love Is Blindness' ends the album in some style. There was some reference to the little death, which can be taken to mean a faint during orgasm but also works as an image of terrorism. I was mixing up the personal and the political... There's nothing more deadly than an idea-or a person-that's almost right. You know it took the 20th century a hundred years to get over communism. There's another dangerous idea that almost made sense. The song has images of terrorism, bomb-building, clockworks and cold steel, parked car." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me
Take my heart
Love is blindness

In a parked car in a crowded street
You see your love made complete
Thread is ripping
The knot is slipping
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks and cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel
Squeeze the handle
Blow out the candle
Love is blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me
Oh, my love
Blindness

A little death without mourning
No call and no warning
Baby, a dangerous idea that almost makes sense

Love is drowning in a deep well
All the secrets and no one to tell
Take the money, honey
Blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me
Oh, my love
Blindness
