Favorite HTDAAB lyric?

For me, the two stand out lyrics are the two inspired by his father's death, Sometimes and One step closer.
Honorable mention City of blinding lights.

For me it is City of blinding lights- one can come up with so various interpretations...Thats what I love about U2

And Original of the species as well.

*Edited, because i just recalled what i like most in COBL- its the verse "Time...wont leave me as i am...." etc. Simply perfect.

One Step Closer
A Man and a Woman
SYCMIOYO

There are a lot of lyrics that stand out more than the songs, there are some from some songs, some from others. There is true genius in Bono's writing, even if just here and there, it's there.

Crumbs.
The beautiful lyrics more than make up for the (already discussed) terrible production. Can't wait to hear it live.

Miracle Drug...yeah baby.

Runner-up - Love and Peace of Else. I don't know why... I just LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this song. Can't wait to hear it live. My favorite lyric from it is the whole Daughters of Zion bit.

All of Crumbs. One of the best-written U2 songs ever.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

'the heart that hearts is the heart that beats....can you hear the drummer slowing' from One Step Closer is very moving.

'We fight all the time, you and I, thats alright....we're the same soul' from Sometimes is a brilliant line and sums up a lot of friends or family relationships where you are very similar to someone.

The whole of Crumbs has great lyrics especially 'where you live should not decide, whether you live or whether you die'.
