"There's a song called 'Rejoice,' and it's exactly the same image as 'I Will Follow,' it's a house tumbling down. It's bizarre to me that I would write two songs using that image... It's like a recurring dream. Looking back on those early songs, where language really is not as important as these unconscious images, I might have stumbled onto something out of my untogetherness. It's the kind of thing a lot of people relate to, but it's not intellectual." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

It's falling, it's falling, and outside
The buildings are tumbling down
And inside a child on the ground
Say's he'll do it again

And what am I to do
And what in the world am I to say
There's nothing else to do
He says he'll change the world some day
I rejoice

This morning I fell out of bed
When I woke up to what he had said
Everything's crazy but I'm too lazy to lie

And what am I to do
Just tell me what am I suppose to say
I can't change the world
But I can change the world in me

I rejoice
Rejoice

We shall rejoice
