You do not pick a fight with someone who for a living lives off hand-eye coordination. -- Bono, on Edge

"If you've ever had a fright in your life, someone close to you dies, or whatever, things come into sharp focus and you just...suddenly some people become more important to you than others. Some ideas become more important to you than others. I think the Dalai Lama says, 'Begin with death, start from there, and you won't go far wrong.' I don't think he was just having a bad day. Christ says, I think, in the sermon on the mount, 'If you love your life too much, you've already lost it.' Which is an interesting one. As a younger man I remember I didn't understand what he meant, because I loved life. You're holding on so tight to it that you're incapable of doing anything with it. It's about fear." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2001

If you have a picture, take it out. If you have her masks, put them on. Let her face be our face tonight. A message of love to Ang San Suu Kyi.

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for one second you turn back
Oh no, be strong, oh

Walk on, walk on
What you got they cannot steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Walk on, walk on
What you've got they can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it
Walk on, walk on
You stay safe tonight

Well, I know it aches, your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Volunteers from Amnesty International, Burma Action, all the One campaigners come up.

Home, hard to know what it is if you've never had one
Home, I can't say where it is but I know I'm going home
That's where the hurt is

When I know it aches, your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on
Walk on

The Rose Bowl, lift her up.

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind
Leave it behind
You gotta leave it behind
Leave it behind

Walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on

And you will never walk alone
You never walk alone
