That's beautiful, very evocative... 'beautifully unfocused', I think Brian Eno would say. I love

"Fire burns the night
leaving only your shadow in the morning light
I see the darkness, I've felt the rain
Everything enters before we exit from pain"

This and the verse before that seem like a bit of a Joshua Tree montage?
Here's to Bono... *clink*

yes Ali, Bono is always creeping out in my thoughts . . . thanks for pointing that out

It was a bit of a spin-off of the new b-side "Always," I don't know if you're still an ATYCLB virgin or not, so maybe you aren't familiar with it?

anyway, thanks

"Always"

"Always"

The face of an angel is always around me
all of her beauty forever surrounding

Her lilting voice is a sweet song she lovingly sings,
or the call of a siren leading me hypnotically to sin

"to be the bee and the flower,
before the sweetness turns to sour"

She is the artist who paints the seasons of my life
the frame of a picture, a thousand words within,
her piercing stare is the sun warming my skin

She gathers my desires,
burning like fluorescent fires
planting them in her garden till they flourish as colorful flowers
the love she gives me is the greatest of powers . . .

cause what we've got we're gonna keep,
-always
and what we've lost we don't need
-always

In my heart and in my dreams
She flows to me like a lonely desert stream
I found her running to the sea . . .
I sat on the shore as her love washed over me
Our love carried us across the ocean,
like a hurricane she turned the tides
the love in her eyes . . .
the calm center of hope in the eternal storm,
falling heavy on my heart setting my spirits free,
a purity that's beyond me . . .

Fire burns the night
leaving only your shadow in the morning light
I see the darkness, I've felt the rain
Everything enters before we exit from pain

Nothing to hide everything i know still deep inside a flower i cannot reach i am learning to see that nothing lasts forever except the time till we next meet one more kiss to make the sky fall at our feet as the heavens crash around then we'll sleep for today we dream and . . .

this is the moment that we share
-for always
turn each song into a prayer,
-now and forever
-always

eternally yours,
always

to the one who makes dreaming a reality

thanks Bono,

-a wandering spirit
