[My dad's] kind of boring, but sometimes when he drives us to school he wears just his dressing gown, and has the music turned up really loud. -- Bono's daughter, Jordan Hewson

"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

I was on the outside when you said
You said you needed me
I was caught in a stoplight
I was blinded and I could not see

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by his hand
If he stops to think he always starts to cry

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

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
You looked through the window of my soul
I was lost, I am found

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

We come here to surrender
Surrender to your love
We come here to surrender
To the spirit of a holy dove
Mother, you had me but I never had you
Mother, I still see you

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when we come in here
It’s your eyes
It’s your eyes
It’s your eyes
In 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
Alright
