Songs By Title

"The trend of the day was recording studios without any room reverb or ambience. The playing room at Windmill Lane was designed to be totally dead, and you can hear it on the drums. It wasn't until the 'Boy' sessions that we figured out that we had to pull the durm kit into the entrance hall, after the receptionist had gone hoe, to get a decent drum sound. With its three storey stairwell and stone and tiled surfaces, it was a great live room. Many bands came to Windmill Lane looking for that big U2 drum sound only to stracth their heads when they heard a drum sound more like Steely Dan coming back off tape." - The Edge, Boy 2008

I hear the children crying, take me home

A painted face and I know we haven't long
We thought that we had the answers
It was the questions we had wrong

I hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

Sad song sad song
Sad song sad song

2-3-4 c'mon

Sad song sad song
Sad song sad song

2-3-4 c'mon

You know who this is? This is the Edge. Lift yourself up. We lift ourselves up. Going up, up, up.

Call out your name
Call out in shame
Call out, you better call out
Call, call, call out
