I'm not sure, but I thought I heard another change while watching the Desire from Slane Castle. It sounds like he's saying 'a promise in a year of erection' as opposed to 'collectoin.'

Am I hearing things?
It's year of ELECTION, not collection...

No, Bono wrote this song after having seen in Africa ah hospital where a lot of people die everyday, and people who work there (like Sister Ann) put dead bodies on bed ("three to a bed" refers to dead bodies).
I think U2's songs are full of sexual meanings, but not this one.
Bye

from out of my head:

Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth?

Her skin is pale like God's only dove
Screams like an angel for your love
Then she makes you watch her from above
And you need her like a drug.

Don't believe in forced entry
Don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by
Wild thoughts escape.

I'm in a fever, when I'm beside her, Desire LOL

Here are some from Summer Rain. They might be a little obscure, (I'm not sure how dirty everyone's minds are), but here goes.

"In a small boat on a generous sea."

"Diving for pearls."

They sound like clitoris/oral sex references to me.

Actually it was originally about his daughters but when his father became ill and passed away it took on a different meaning for Bono.

Granted there may be a double meaning to Zoo Station but if you listen to the beginning, it sounds like it is about a mother giving birth to a child.

Oh Gawd that's an old expression anyway!

Do agree with Miroslava, the groaning is very important but I personally prefer the break in BTBS
