"Until The End Of The World"

"The song was written at the same time as one of Ireland's greatest poets, Brendan Kennelly, was writing his great 'Book Of Judas,' a series of poems about the betrayal of Christ. It was an epic coincidence, because I was given the poems to review after album was finished. The whole Zoo TV tour that followed owes much to one of Brendan Kennelly's great lines: 'the best way to serve the age is to betray it.' That became our theme for the next couple years, to do everything U2 weren't supposed to do. We had a deep-seated belief that the spirit of the band was true enough and strong enough and imperishable enough to not rely on an obvious guitar sounds or signatures to come through. It would come through anyways. It would come through a thick prison wall." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
We ate the food, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You were talking about the end of the world

I took the money
I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You, you were acting like it was
The end of the world

Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love, love

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love
But my sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret and waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait
'Til the end of the world
