"We may well be the future of rock 'n' roll, but so what? When I go back to Dublin, to my girlfriend it's more of a distraction that I'm in a band than any big deal — and my old man shouts at me for not doing the dishes before I go to bed." — Bono, 1982

"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

Ladies and gentlemen
Let me tell you, 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 his 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

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
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

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there
But it's your eyes
But it's your eyes
But it's your eyes
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
