I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind


These words changed my life after hearing Bono sing them live during the Elevation tour in 2001!!! I can't explain further as it is very pesonal.

If I could, you know I would, If I could I would, let it go

and . . .

You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

both about letting go, something I still haven't learned to do

Oh Achtung Baby definitely
The Fly!!

and I really like these lines from Stay:

And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing

Stay...with the demons you drowned
Stay...with the spirit I found
Stay...and the night would be enough

"See the sun rise over her skin
She feels like water in my hand
Freeway, like a river, cuts through this land
Into the side of love
Like a burning spear
And the poison rain
Brings a flood of fear
Through the ghost ranch hills
Death valley waters
In the towers of steel
Belief goes on and on!"

Every artist is a canable, every poet is a theif. They kill their insperation and sing about their greif....

I love how this mocks themselves looking back at Rattle and Hum. The album before Achtung Baby.

ALOT of great lines have been quoted already. Some that jumped out at me were:

"We thought that we had the answers/It was the questions we had wrong" - 11 O'clock Tick Tock

"Charity dance with me.
Turn me around tonight.
Up through the spiral staircase
to the higher ground." -Promenade

I had never realized he is saying 'charity'. That makes it so awesome! The KJV translation of 1 Cor. 13 uses 'charity' for the word 'love' and I would bet Bono drew from that.

One of my absolute favs hasn't been mentioned yet. Did everyone forget this line from Sunday, Bloody Sunday?
"The real battle has just begun/ To claim the victory Jesus
won, on a Sunday Bloody Sunday"
Absolutely stunning. After all the words about war and violence, Bono says the real battle (IMO, the battle vs. death) has just begun. Christians believe that Jesus defeated death by His resurrection, and offers eternal life to all who will claim His victory. That fact that Jesus was resurrected on a Sunday (Easter) ties in perfectly, and beautifully, with the title of the song.

Spoken words during live shows should have never entered this discussion, but since they have, I'll mention these Bono quotes:
"I believe in shampoo!!" -ZooTv
"Bend over, San Fransisco!!" (Hilarious)- ZooTv

I have plenty of other favs (including HTDAAB), but I can't type forever.
