"When I was 4 I'd already met everybody; it's so not a big deal. But I haven't met Justin Timberlake yet." — Bono's daughter, Jordan Hewson

"The 4 members of U2 went to see the Ramones playing in the State Cinema in Dublin without thinking about how we were going to get in. We had no tickets and no money. My best friend Guggie had a ticket and he snuck us through a side exit he pried open. The world stopped long enough for us to get in. Even though we only saw half the show, it became one of the greatest nights of our life." - Bono, Songs of Innocence 2014

I was chasing down the days of fear
Chasing down a dream before it disappeared
I was aching to be somewhere near
Your voice was all I heard

I was shaking from a storm in me
Haunted by the spectres that we had to see
Yeah, I wanted to be the melody
Above the noise, above the hurt

I was young, not dumb
Just wishing to be blinded
By you, brand new
And we were pilgrims on our way

I woke up at the moment
When the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense
Out of the world
Everything I ever lost
Now has been returned
In the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard

We got language so we can’t communicate
Religion so I can love and hate
Music so I can exaggerate my pain
And give it a name

I was young, not dumb
Just wishing to be blinded
By you, brand new
And we were pilgrims on our way

I woke up at the moment
When the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense
Out of the world
Everything I ever lost
Now has been returned
In the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard

We can hear you, hear you 
We can hear you 
We can hear you, hear you 

I woke up at the moment 
When the miracle occurred 
I get so many things I don’t deserve 
All the stolen voices 
Will someday be returned 
The most beautiful sound I’d ever heard

Your voices will be heard
