"Pride (In The Name Of Love)" (live from Point Depot)

"'Pride' started out as an ecstatic rant. We looked for a subject big enough to demand this level of emotion that was coming out. We had discovered nonviolence and Martin Luther King, not just in relation to his use of the Scriptures and his church background, but also as a solution to the Irish problems. There was a lot of emotion there, but to be honest with you, as a lyric it's daft. No, not daft. It's just not deft. It's a missed opportunity. I even get the time of Dr. King's assassination wrong. I said, 'Early morning-April four.' It was early evening." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

Thank you
Thank you very much
Dublin people got pride in the name of love
It's just as well 'cause we can't dance

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed up on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Oh yeah, love

Early morning, April four
The shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Checkoslovakia, Poland, East Germany
We sing this for all the ones, the brave ones who gave up their lives in Romania.

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Ring them bells now
Ring them bells now
Ring them bells now
