[M]usic is worship. [W]hether it comes from that ancient place we call soul or simply the spinal cortex. . . . The smoke goes upwards, to God or something you replace God with -- usually yourself. -- Bono

"The sequence that blows my mind is 'An Cat Dubh,' the black cat, to 'Into The Heart.' It's astonishing. Just the violences of Edge's guitar playing, this image of temptation, a cat sleeping beside a dead bird in suburban Dublin, and playing with it, the way they do, cat stalks the bird, kills it, and then shakes it about. And somehow knowing the sexual side of that, desire and innocence, and the way it can play with you. And the beautiful lyrical guitar, Edge breaking the rules of punk rock and playing a kind of guitar theme, a solo almost, that went on for an age. That's amazing." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Into the heart of a child
I can smile, I can go back

Into the heart of a child
I can smile, I can see my way

Into the heart, into the heart of a child
I can go back, I can stay awhile

Into the heart
Into the heart of the child
Into the heart
Tonight, wait for tonight

Thank you very much
