"October" (They Call It An Accident edit)
"It was a colder time, materialism without any idealism, the sun without any heat, winter. It was after the fall, after harvest. I had the line, 'October, the trees slips bare of all they wear.' The song is a really gentle, meditative piece of work. Edge at the piano coming up with these beautiful ice notes, and this picture of loss of innocence, the fall, the leaves falling from the trees, and you're left exposed." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006
