"I sing from standing in front of Larry Mullen's kick-drum; I sing from Edge ringin' those bells; I sing from Adam, who keeps us all on the ground. Above all else, my inspiration is friendship." — Bono

I was running down the road
The fear was all I knew
I was looking for a friend that’s true
Then I ran into you
And that cherry blossom tree
Was a gateway to the sun
And friendship, once it’s won
It’s won, it’s one

Oh, Northside
Just across the river to the Southside
Well, that’s a long way here

All the green and all the gold
The hurt you hide
The joy you hold
The foolish pride
That gets you out the door
Up on Cedarwood Road
Up on Cedarwood Road

Sleepwalking down these streets
Not waking from these dreams
It’s never dead
It’s still my head
It was a warzone in my teens
I’m still standing on that street
Still need an enemy
The worst ones I can’t see
You can, you can

Oh, Northside
Just across the river to the Southside
That’s a long way here

All the green and all the gold
The hurt you hide
And the joy you hold
Your foolish pride
That sends you back for more
Up on Cedarwood Road
Still up on Cedarwood Road

Is The Edge coming out to play

If the door is open it isn’t theft
You cannot return to where you’ve never left
Blossoms falling from a tree
They cover you and cover me
Symbols crashing, bibles slashed
Paint the world you need to see
Sometimes fear is the only place
That we can call our home
Cedarwood Road

And the heart that is broken
Is the heart that is open
The heart that is broken
Is the heart that is open
Open, open, open, open
