"[Bono] has always enjoyed the trappings of fame, but he feels this urge to balance it with something more substantial. He really is a walking contradiction. It's always all or nothing with him." — Larry

"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

11 o'clock tick tock

It's cold outside, it gets so hot in here
And he boys and girls collide to the music in my ear
I hear the children crying and I know it's time to go
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 Sing with me
Sad song sad song
Sad song sad song

Something hold on
Hold on tightly
Hold on
Hold on tightly

Will you dance with me
Dance with me

Call out your name
Call out in shame
Call out your name, brother
Call out
You better call out

Thank you, good night
