"'Fire' was not a very good song. I always had this faith that we could make it up as we went along, but sometimes we couldn't, and that was a case in point. When you are in a place like Nassau, you don't really want to go in and work. You realize why all these great groups make crap records when they go to record there - who wants to go to the Bahamas and sit in a studio?" - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Calling, calling
The sun is burning black
Calling, calling
It's beating on my back
With a fire
With a fire

Calling, calling
The moon is running red
Calling, calling
It's pulling me instead
With a fire, fire
But there's a fire inside and I'm falling over
There's a fire in me when I call out
I built a fire, fire
I'm going home

Calling, calling
The stars are falling down
Calling, calling
They knock me to the ground
With a fire, fire
But there's a fire inside when I'm falling over
There's a fire in me when I call out
There's a fire inside when I'm falling over
I built a fire, fire
I'm going home
