God, this song could've been better.

Actually the first half is really what kills it.

God yes, Miami --> Bullet is one of the band's best segues. Though I also liked the sudden transition from Bad/Dirty Day into Bullet on ZooTV, just with the way the song absolutely exploded out of whatever snippet Bono was doing or "love, it won't last kissing time".

But for the first time, I feeeeel ...

Yeah, agreed. This song needed much more work lyrically, because it's not totally worthless musically. Honestly, though, I think it would have been better as a b-side and NASOTR should have been on the album. After all, NASOTR has fantastic lyrics.

The first time I heard Bad/The First Time -> Bullet I nearly shit my pants. Oh, for those types of performances again.

the only part redeeming it is "then there will be no time for sorrow..."

"Come on down", is that a reference to The Price is Right?
