To some people the church is their ticket to respectability, a certain bourgeois point of view, a safety net for when they go to bed. My idea of Christianity is no safety net, a scathing attack on bourgeois values, and a risk to respectability.-- Bono, 2002

"'The Three Sunrises' was a tune that almost made the album, but in the end was too different from the rest of the material. It was the first track to be finished when we went looking for B-sides and remains one of our best out-takes. The guitar is heavily influenced by King Sunny Ade." - The Edge, The Unforgettable Fire 2009

Spirit of the rising sun, lift me up
Hold me there and never let me fall
Love me 'til I die, my heart won't wait
Soon I will be done

In this love song

Hey, hey, love won't find
Find it's own way home

In this love song

Sunshine, sunshine on me
Sunshine, sunshine on me

Hey, hey, love won't find

Sunshine on me
Bring it through to my home
I would give you everything
I will give you my desire

Sunshine, sunshine on me
