"The first two records had a sort of cinema sound, a cinematic Panavision feel, the broad, big sound we wanted for U2. Now that we've done the cinema sound, I'd like to make it a bit rougher." — Bono

For the people of Burma. If you have a picture, take it out. If you have a mask, put it on. Let her face be your face tonight. Aung San Suu Kyi. A message of love, a message of love. Can you hear her?

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 a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on
What you got they can't 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 us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You should 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
Stay safe tonight

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

Volunteers, come on out now.

Home, hard to know what it is if you've never had one
Home, I can't say what it is but you know a sad one
It's where the hurt is

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

Lift her up, 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've got to leave it behind
Leave it behind

Walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on
