I don't think it's one of their best ever, but it's a good song, and it's growing on me. Very catchy. The end is fantastic; it really makes the song. Sounds like the lyrics are some of Bono's best as of late, too.

I don't know if I'd say this is better than anything on HTDAAB though...as of now I like OOTS and Vertigo better but this is definitely a good song. Right now I'm giving it like 7.5/10.

I hope this song becomes a hit...Bono's little heart will be broken if it's not...

I think this song will do well. If stuff like The Fray can be so popular, surely this can, as it's a million times better but just as catchy (if not more so).

Window in the skies

The shackles are undone
The bullet’s quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun
Will keep us when its done

The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grain is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
What it’s doing to me

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love where love may please
Soul in a strip tease
Hate brought to its knees

Sky over our head
Can reach it from our bed
If you let me in your heart
And out of my head

Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
Oh can’t you see what our love has done
What it’s doing to me

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Please don’t ever let me out of here!
I’ve got no shame, oh no, oh no!

Oh can’t you see what love has done
Oh can’t you see…
Oh can’t you see what love has done
What it’s doing to me

I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder but you and I
But love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

Oh can’t you see what love has done
to every broken heart
Oh can’t you see what love has done
for every heart that cries
love let a window in the skies
and to love I rhapsodize
Oh can’t you see

Okay you pretty much said it all, I don't have to add much.

Not crazy about the song but I like it. Love the guitar, esp. in the chorus! Like how the song title is buried deep (and late) in the lyrics. Somewhat better lyrics than most of ATYCLB or Bomb.

Its pretty good. I dont think its on par with their greatest songs ever though, not even close. To me I can see why they put this on the Greatest Hits disc and didnt save it for the next studio album. Its encouraging though because its a decent song which means they have better ones they are saving for the next album.

Its definately better than any of the new tunes they put on the other greatest hits though.

Blows. Trite lyrics, unmemorable music. A lot of you are just excited to hear new U2.........and I know a lot of you listen to hardly anything other than U2, hence the bias.

To be honest, it's probably the laziest U2 song yet. At least "Crumbs" had an important social message behind it........this is just Bono coming up with a hummable, repetitive chorus...........it's like latter Oasis, rather than, you know, something of an important act.

it's soooo difficult to judge how good a song is the DAY it comes out....I started out really really liking it...but, to be dead honest....something tells me this song just isn't that great...I don't think it's going to stand the test of time...it seems like it's merely a catchy pop tune...I'm sure it will be a huge hit on the radio though....that said...my opinion could change in the next day or two...

welcome to the blue crack Amiarockstar!!


i admit it is not up there with the likes of Bad, IWF or SBS.. To me its in the same category as Electrical Storm which is the first song I can think of right now..

I agree completely. Anytime something new by U2 comes out there is always the typical overreaction ranging from "Its the greatest ever!", to "It sucks". Only time tells on these things. My reaction to it was, its alright, not fantastic, not bad. My opinion may change for the good or the bad by next year. I loved Electrical Storm when it came out. Now I think its just a decent song.

U2 have been my favorite band bsaically since I was born and I try not to listen to them over and over so the music never gets old or so I don't sound biased. The point is yeah I do love everything U2 puts out but I didnt get chills listening to any of the songs from ATYCLB or HTDAAB the first time. Ive just listened to Windows In The Skies and this is a special one. The pace of this song, the immediecy (is that a word) ,the melody, bono and the band sound absolutely amazing! I love it. I know some of you feel differently and thats cool. But this is U2, and I think some one has finally found them and got them making classic unforgettable tunes again. Ok thats it.
