(Bono writes far better songs about his mother - Kite aside, if we're including that.)

He's spoken of it quite a lot in books and stuff. They didn't get along well, especially when his mother died when he was 14. His dad called him a "bloody exasparating child", he was constantly pushing the boundaries. So they didn't really get to talk much.

Sometimes You Cant Make It On Your Own has grown on me to the point where I think it's one of U2's best, and easily on par with most/all of the songs he wrote specifically about his mother.

I think the "father" songs are better than the ones about his mother. (and that is without counting Kite and, on a more broad level, One).
