"Rock & roll music — the noisier the better — is still my alarm clock. It still keeps me awake. It's a hymn to the numbness, a reasonable response to the way we live." — Bono

Songs By Title

Yeah, like I was saying, after I jumped, it occured to me: life is perfect, life is the best, full of magic and beauty and surprises. You just don't see it all that clearly when you're still there. All I ever wanted was to reach Eloise, just to reach her, and I did, and I ended up turning the world upside down along the way, even if just for a moment. Wow.

All my life I worshipped her
Her golden voice, her beauty's beat
How she made us feel, how she made me real
And the ground beneath her feet
And the ground beneath her feet

And now I can't be sure of anything
Black is white and cold is heat
For what I worshipped stole my love away
It was the ground beneath her feet
It was the ground beneath her feet

Go lightly down your darkened way
Go lightly under ground
I'll be down there in another day
I won't rest until you're found
Let me love you, let me rescue you
Let me lead you to where two roads meet
Oh, come back above where there is only love
Only love

(This song was written by U2 and Salman Rushdie)
