When musicians open their mouths to do anything but sing, I put my wallet in my boot. -- 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 stay a while
But I can't go there

Into the heart
Of a child
I can smile
I can't go there

Into the heart
Into the heart
Of a child
I can't go back
I can't stay a while

Into the heart
Into the heart
