When I Look at the World

i've never really sat down and payed attention to this song, but it really is fantastic, such an underrated gem, its a good message, a good harmony, and it has a great solo to it. Thoughts?

My favorite song on ATYCLB.

Love Bono's voice as he sings "I can't wait any longer.....I can't wait till I'm stronger....I can't wait....any longer...to see what you see...."

On editions of ATYCLB without The Ground Beneath Her Feet, this is the best track.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Totally love this song. Very rich with meaning. One of my favorites by U2, and some of my favorite lyrics:


So, I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you, it's no use
I can't see what you see
When I look at the world

Ditto, and one of my favorite U2 songs. I love the whole story of the song- a conversation with Jesus done brilliantly.

My second favorite ATLYCB song, right behind In a Little While. Love the guitar solo in the end, this song is really a gem.

Hmmm.... a favorite of mine, too. I thought I read somewhere, though, that he wrote it about Ali, ( how she stayed so balanced and positive at the height of her involvement with Chernobyl). Could be mistaken, or is it just Bono and his ambiguous writing?

One of the better songs on the album, only TGBHF and Beautiful Day are better. I'm pretty sure the song is a conversation with Jesus.

Yeah, I love this song.
Best song with Kite and In a little while.....
Edge's solo is making me fly above the clouds..... too short though....

yeah, Edge forgot how to make the sound for his guitar for the song. It was a beautiful snippet during Bad in Kansas City.
