"Pride (In The Name Of Love)" (live from Chicago)

"'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

One man comes in the name of love
One man come and go
One man comes 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 a beach
His heart 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

In the evening, April four
A 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

Sing for Dr. King
For Dr. King's dream
For a dream big enough to fit the whole world
A dream where everyone is created equal under the eyes of God
Everyone
Not just an American dream or an Asian dream or a European dream
Also, an African dream
