Some people get soft and mushy when they have kids, but it makes me more militant. I just want it to be a better world for my children than it is now. -- Bono

"Brian Eno loved it, he thought it sounded like a Van Morrison song. I really did want it on the album, because it was playful and broke the mood. Call it a sorbet between courses. I am not sure if Larry felt the same way." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

In the days when we were swinging from the trees
I was a monkey stealing honey from a swarm of bees
I could taste, I could taste you even then
And I would chase you down the wind

You could go there if you please, wild honey
And if you go there, go with me, wild honey

Did I know you, did I know you even then
Before the clocks kept time, before the world was made
From the cruel sun you were my shelter
You were my shelter and my shade

If you go there go with me, wild honey
You can do just what you please, wild honey
Yeah, just blowing in the breeze, wild honey
Wild, wild, wild

I'm still standing, I'm still standing where you left me
Are you still growing wild with everthing tame around you
I send you flowers, cut flowers for your hall
I know you're garden's full but is there sweetness at all

Oh oh oh, love me with your soul

If you go there go with me, wild honey
Won't you take me, take me please, wild honey
Yeah, swinging through the trees, wild honey
Wild, wild, wild
