"People would not react if I went out and carried on like Elvis Presley or Mick Jagger or David Bowie. People do react if I go out and carry on like Bono. And I like that."

"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"

"There are only a few moments of full-on electricity-in-the-air creativity and I remember from the making of that album, but the birth of 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' is one. Bono started singing, and was usual there are a lot of signals and a few helpful suggestions coming his way from the floor, but then just nailed this fantastic melody that came out of a classic soul tradition. And as I listened to this incredible song emerging out of the fog, I remembered something I had written in a notebook a possible song title that I had actually stumbled upon that morning. I tried it in my head as Bono sang, and it scanned so perfectly that I wrote it on a piece of paper and handed it to him as he sang. It was like hand in glove." - The Edge, U2 By U2 2006

I have climbed the highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes, I'm still running

You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

The love will stay
Don't go away
We’re where the love will stay
Don't go away
Oh you know I love this place
Don't go away
I won't go without you baby
Don't go away
