"The Latin Americans have the sexy end of Catholicism. They have carnivals, which we don't have in Northern Europe. We have all of the denial but none of the celebration." — Bono

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 bring you where two roads meet
Oh, come back above where there is only love
Only love

My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my

Let me love you true
Let me rescue you
Let me bring to where two roads meet
Let me love you true
Let me rescue you
I want to bring you to where two roads meet

My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my
My oh my

(This song was written by U2 and Salman Rushdie)
