"Edge made me listen to [our old material] for The Best Of, and I was bracing myself, cause I think I sound like a very opinionated girl. Just screaming my head off. But then I actually listened to it and I thought, 'My God, there's pure joy here.'" — Bono

And if the terrors of the night
Come creeping into your day
And the world comes
Stealing children from your room
Guard your innocence from hallucination
And know that darkness
Always gathers around the light

If there is a light
We can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
If there is a dark
That we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And if the wind screams and shouts
And the sea is a dragon's tail
And the ship that stole your heart away sets sail
When all you've left is leaving
And all you got is grieving
And all you know is needing

If there is a light
We can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
If there is a dark
That we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

This is a song
A song for someone
Someone like me

I know the world is dumb
But you don't have to be
I've got a question for the child in you
Before it leaves
Are you tough enough to be kind
Do you know your heart has its own mind
Darkness gathers around the light
Hold on, hold on

There is a light
You can’t always see
If there is a world
We can’t always be
There is a dark
That we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

This is a song
A song for someone
This is a song
A song for someone
Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me
