"The thing that's most oppressive in our era is celebrity. And that's why people want to burn my house down. Celebrity is ugly. What it does is belittle real life. Which is where real heroism is." — Bono

Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just killing time
Last time we met it was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and a groom

We broke the bread
We drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You’re still talking about the end of the world

I took the money
I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise

In the garden I was playing the tart
Kissed your lips and I broke your heart
You, you were acting like it was
The end of the world

Oh Edge, I’m sorry
I’m not sorry

Love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love,
Where is the love
I know where it isn’t

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim

Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out to the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait
'Til the end of the world

C'mon now
Ensemble, ensemble
Words, words, words are all I have
To take your heart away
Only words, it’s only words
This song, it’s only words

For mercy has a human heart
Pity a human face
And love, the human form divine
And peace, the human dress
Then every man of every clime
That prays in his distress
Prays to the human form divine
Love, mercy, pity, peace
And all must love the human form
In heathen, Turk, or Jew
Where mercy, love, and pity dwell
There God is dwelling too
Where mercy, love, and pity dwell
There God is dwelling too
There God is dwelling too
