"As regards Zoo TV, it's so logical for U2 to do this — I don't think they understand exactly what they are doing and I like that. It takes guts." — Gavin Friday

My love she throws me like a rubber ball
Oh, the sweetest thing
She won't catch me, or break my fall
Oh, the sweetest thing
Baby got blue skies up ahead
But in this I'm a rain cloud
You know she like a dry kind of love
Oh, the sweetest thing

I'm losing you
Yeah, I'm losing you
Ain't love the sweetest thing

I wanted to run but she made me crawl
Oh, the sweetest thing
Eternal fire, she turned me to straw
Oh, the sweetest thing
You know I got black eyes
But they burned so brightly for her
Mine is a blind kind of love
Oh, the sweetest thing

I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Ain't love the sweetest thing
The sweetest thing

Blue eyed boy meets a brown-eyed girl
Oh, the sweetest thing
You can sew it up but you still see the tear
Oh, the sweetest thing
Baby got blue skies up ahead
And in this I'm a rain cloud
You know we got a stormy kind of love

Oh, the sweetest thing
The sweetest thing
The sweetest thing
