"Although spending a couple of months a year [in Ireland] is only a vague impression of home, any place else would seem like work."

Handwritten Lyrics

"One" (live from Slane)

"It's a father-and-son story. I tried to write about someone I knew who was coming out and was afraid to tell his father. It's a religious father and son... I have a lot of gay friends, and I've seen them screwed up from unloving family situations, which just are completely anti-Christian. If we know anything about God, it's that God is love. That's part of the song. And then it's also about people struggling to be together, and how difficult it is to stay together in this world, whether you're in a band or a relationship." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you
Now you got someone to blame
You say one love, one life
When it's one need in the night
One love
We get to share it
It leaves you baby
If you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love
You want me to go without
Is it too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your bed
Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I've got
We're one but we're not the same
Yeah, we hurt each other, then we do it again

You say love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter but then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love, one blood, one life
You got to do what you should
One life with each other
My sisters, my brothers
One life but it's not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One

Do you hear him coming, Lord
Do you hear his call
You hear us knocking
We're knocking at your door
You hear us coming, Lord
You hear us call
You hear him scratching
Then you make us crawl
