With punk, you could pick up a guitar and you didn't have to play it very well. But with hip-hop, you didn't even have to play badly -- you just got a record of somebody who could play. -- Bono

You're everything I could want
There's no house you couldn't haunt
You're the key that could keep me in
You're the sense under the skin

I won't bring you roses
I'll bring myself instead
Time only is time for what was meant
Not what was said

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door

Don't come knocking
Knock knock knocking
Don't come knocking no more

You're a dream I could wake up in
You're a fight I shouldn't try to win
You're the door I always leave open
You're the heart that's always hoping

Off a tree-lined avenue
In a cottage of stone
I am sleeping, not dreaming
I would rather live alone

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door

Don't come knocking
Knock knock knocking
Don't come knocking no more

All the stars in the sky
They can't light our way, oh no
All the maps and all the charts
All the dreams
Dreams who won't leave you home
Home

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door

Don't come knocking
Knock knock knocking
Don't come knocking no more
