"I don't like music unless it has a healing effect. I don't like it when people leave concerts still feeling edgy." — Bono

"It's a song about unconditional love, which is what a mother has for her child. If you walk away, I will follow. No matter what you do, you cannot separate yourself from my love. Which echoes the scriptures: 'nor from the love of God.' It's an amazing thing, but there's a chill in it. I'm singing from a mother's point of view." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

It's going off in the heart
I will follow

I was on the outside when you said
You said you needed me
I was caught in a stoplight
I was blinded, I could not see
A boy tries hard to be a man
His lover takes him by his hand
He stops to think and always wonders why

If you walk away walk away
I walk away walk away
I will follow
If you walk away walk away
I walk away walk away
I will follow

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
Amazing grace
I was lost, I am found

If you walk away walk away
I walk away walk away
I will follow
If you walk away walk away
I walk away walk away
I will follow

Please, ring those bells
Make those bells ring
Edge, ring those bells
The song on two strings
Boston, lift me up on your shoulder
Let's get to a place where we would never get over
Boston, lift me up on your shoulder
Let's get to a place we could never get over
Paradise, Paradise, Paradise
A club called Paradise twenty years ago
Ring those bells, those bells never gonna get old
We listen in the light
I can be here through the night
I can go now, I'm home now

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in here
Your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
Your, your eyes

If you walk away walk away
I walk away walk away
I will follow
If you walk away walk away
I walk away walk away
I will follow
I will follow
I will follow
I will, I will
