In A Little While

Just heard this on the radio, and it reminded me that: Bono can do it: It IS a love song, a Bono written one, so I know there will be a disagreement here.
But, it is sweet, simple and honest.

Love the guitar and the lyrics, but it's the vocal that really makes the song.

I love the summery guitar melody and the "scatter of light" middle 8. But I'm not crazy about the somewhat direct and elementary verse lyrics. Good song though, overall. Very different for U2!

Yeah, I like Adam's comment about it. He says "It is sung in a very broken voice and believe me Bono was very broken that day." Bono recorded the vocal at about 6:00 in the morning after having been out drinking and partying all night long. Talk about stepping into the songs. LOL

My favorite from ATYCLB and one of my favorite U2 songs ever. So relaxing and soothing, I love the way Bono sings it.

I love the song, Bono's rough vocals fit it perfectly. I think it's my favourite song from the album. I especially love the middle 8 of the song. It's not purely a love song, though, they've always said it's about a hangover, so the situation in which it was recorded is quite fitting.

Unicorn and rihansu,
I love to know the behind the scenes stuff about u2 songs. Where did/do you get the info-from their books mostly?
Thanks much for your information !!
Bono's voice always sounds like there is a story to tell-so personal and real, the "imperfections" take it to another level for me.

My favorite part:

In a little while I won't be blown by every breeze
Friday night running to Sunday on my knees
That girl, that girl, she's mine
Well I've known her since
Since she was a little girl with Spanish eyes
When I saw her in a pram they pushed her by
My how you've grown
Well, it's been, it's been a little while

I really don't mean to rain on your parade but that last line doesn't sit well with me. It's almost like he couldn't think of anything else to say and just went "it's been.... been... been a little while."

i love Bono's songwriting and most of his lyrics, but why do two of his best recent "love songs" ..this one, and "Original of the Species" have a mixed subject, where he can't decide if he's addressing a romantic lover or a child?

it's disorienting at best, and disturbing at worst...

He is saying that the woman that he hasn't seen in awhile has grown and is looking mighty fine. The last time he saw her she wasn't looking like that thus, the line ending, take into consideration the tone of his voice while he is saying it.

Many U2 songs are layered with meaning. I enjoy that.

For me, "In A Little While" is a small gem that grows with each listen. It ends up outshining many of the singles from ATYCLB.

In A Little While is my second-favourite song from ATYCLB, I absolutely adore it, It's also one of my favourite performances from Bono, the scratchy broken vocals suit the song so well. I like how all of U2's love songs are bittersweet at the core.

This was the first song that I played over and over off of ATYCLB. Good times.
