"This is the stuff that in the end makes us what we are. It's the stuff that you can't leave behind, the personality of the band, the way we interact with each other."

Into The Heart Lyrics

The Complete U2 (2004)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Into The Heart"

"The sequence that blows my mind is 'An Cat Dubh,' the black cat, to 'Into The Heart.' It's astonishing. Just the violences of Edge's guitar playing, this image of temptation, a cat sleeping beside a dead bird in suburban Dublin, and playing with it, the way they do, cat stalks the bird, kills it, and then shakes it about. And somehow knowing the sexual side of that, desire and innocence, and the way it can play with you. And the beautiful lyrical guitar, Edge breaking the rules of punk rock and playing a kind of guitar theme, a solo almost, that went on for an age. That's amazing." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Into the heart
Of a child
I stay a while
But I can't go there

Into the heart
Of a child
I can smile
I can't go there

Into the heart
Into the heart
Of a child
I can't go back
I can't stay a while

Into the heart
Into the heart
