We could be like archeologists digging for some really rare sticky groove, but why should we do that when we have Larry Mullen? -- Bono

"We can be in the middle of the worst gig in our lives, but when we go into that song, everything changes. The audience is on its feet, singing along with every word. It's like God suddenly walks through the room. It's the point where craft ends and spirit begins. How else do you explain it?" - Bono, Los Angeles Times 2004

I want to run, I want to hide
Yeah, I want to tear down the walls
That hold me tonight
I want to break through into a new frame
Where the streets have no name
I want to feel sunlight on my face
Yeah, I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the city sweet rain

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do

The cities a flood and our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I'll show you a place high on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all I can do

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all I can do
All we know how to do

Then there will be no time for sorrow
Then will there be no time of shame
Then there will
Then there will be
Then there will be no time
Then there will be no time
Then there will be no time
No time
Then there will be no time
Then there will be no time
No
