After one listen, I couldn't recall anything about this song.

On second listen now, waiting to be as gobsmacked as some of you ...

Okay, I'll be the dissenting voice. It's not a standout for me.

It's a beautiful song. My favorite so far. That third verse is hauntingly beautiful

Exactly. SO GOOD.

That subtle synth throughout the beginning of the song before the drums come in is hauntingly beautiful. Such a distance to it.

Uh ..... cool?


The lyrics are wonderful. Musically it doesn-t do much for me. I'm sure it'll grow on me.

That’s a brilliant section. Also mentions the “strangers that protected me to bring me back to you.”

Great track, and like the subtle callback to Raised by Wolves in the opening guitar.

Very William Blake-esque theme as well.

Beautiful song. It was really bugging me what the verse melody (particularly in the 1st verse) reminded me of. After 3 listens and then humming it over and over... the vocal melody in the verse is very reminiscent of the verse melody in "6 months in a leaky boat" by Split Enz to me. And that's not a bad thing, as the rest of the song bears no resemblance whatsoever!

Atmospheric U2 is my favourite U2. That's why this track and the opener are amongst my top rated ones on this album.
