When I first met Anton [Corbijn] I had one request . . . make me look tall, skinny, intelligent with a sense of humour. 'So you wanna look like me,' was his reply. -- Bono

So here I am in the box room of Cedarwood Road, age 18. Trying to write a perfect song for a perfect girl called Allison Stewart. She keeps telling me she’s not interested in perfect, which I guess means I’m in for a chance.

You got a face not spoiled by beauty
I have some scars from where I’ve been
You’ve got eyes that can see right through me
You’re not afraid of anything they’ve seen
I was told that I would feel nothing the first time
I don’t know how these cuts heal
But in you I found a rhyme

If there is a light
You can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
If there is a dark
That you shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And this is a song
A song for someone
A song
A song for someone

You let me into a conversation
A conversation only we could make
You break and enter my imagination
Whatever’s in there
It’s yours to take
I was told I’d feel nothing the first time
You were slow to heal
But this could be the night

If there is a light
You can’t always see
And there is a world
We can’t always be
If there is a dark
Within and without
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And this is a song
A song for someone
A song
A song for someone

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I’m a long way
From your hill on Cavalry
I’m a long way
From where I was and where I need to be
If there is a light
You can’t always see
There is a world
We can’t always be
I know there are plenty
Reasons to doubt
There is a light
Don’t let it go out
