"Our emotions aren't just glossy, throwaway things. Some people saw 'A Day Without You (sic)' as escapism, but it was about suicide. I don't expect people to dig into our material with a knife and fork but... I write at the microphone-with pen and paper I start on the things I suppose I should be writing about rather than what I feel. As they take a long time to come out of me, they take a long time to sink in." - Bono, NME 1982

A day without me

Starting a landslide in my ego
Look from the outside to the world I left behind
I'm dreaming, you're awake
If I was sleeping
What's at stake

A day without me

Whatever the feelings I've been feeling
What are the feelings you left behind

A day without me

Hold on
I won't forget this evening
Don't forget this evening

Started a landslide in my ego
Look from the outside to a world I left behind
In a world I left behind
Shed a tear and then go home
In a world I left behind
Wipe their eyes and then go home

Thank you
Good night
Thank you
Good night
God bless you
