"We played two nights in LA. I woke up one morning with a song in my head, 'Love Rescue Me.' Lots of songs arrive in a dream state. At first you think it must be somebody else's song, because it's there, verse, chorus, melody. I had been dreaming about Bob Dylan and I thought it w might be a Bob Dylan song. It's about a man people keep turning to as a saviour but his own life is getting messed up and he could use a bit of salvation himself." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Love rescue me, come forth and speak to me
Raise me up and don't let me fall
No man is my enemy, my own hands imprison me
Love rescue me

Many strangers have I met on the road to my regret
Many lost who seek to find themselves in me
They ask me to reveal the very thoughts they would conceal
Love rescue me

And the sun in the sky makes a shadow of you and I
Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea
I'm here without a name in the palace of my shame
I say love rescue me

Ziggy Marley

We've conquered my past, the future is here at last
We stand at the entrance to a new world we can see\
The ruins to my right will soon have lost sight of me
I said love rescue me

Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow
Yet I will fear no evil
I have cursed thy rod and staff, they no longer comfort me
Love rescue me

Sing sha la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la
Sha la la la

I said love rescue me
I said love
I'm on a mountain, save me love
I said love
Of the life of me

Yeah, I'm here without a name in the palace of my shame
I said love rescue me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
The palace of my shame
I said love rescue me

Goodnight, God bless you

(U2 performed this song with Ziggy Marley and the Wailers)
