"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

Under the Brooklyn Bridge, I will follow

I was on the inside when you said
You said you needed me
I was counting at myself
I was blind, I could not see

A boy tries hard to be a man
His lover takes him by the 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 will follow

I will follow

I was on the inside
When the four walls , they came down
This tight-rope casting down the street
Like a sign, lost and found

Walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow
Yeah
I will cross it

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in here
Your eyes
Your eyes
Your eyes
Yeah, 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 follow
I will, I will
I will, I will

Thank you
See you in the springtime
God bless you
