Why can't rock-and-roll dance like Elvis Presley, sing like Van Morrison, walk like the Supremes, talk like John Lennon, roar like the Clash, drum like Keith Moon and play guitar like Jimi Hendrix? -- 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

This evening, the four walls are yours. I will follow.

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

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by the hand
If he stops to think, he starts to cry
Oh 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, follow

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
I was lost, I am 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, follow

Your eyes make a circle
And I see you when I go in here
But it's your eyes
But it's your eyes
But it's 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 follow
I will

Thank you
