Awwww ... Bono is such a sweetie

"L'incontro" is the name of one of the new Andrea Bocelli songs; A special song, because the first minute contains a poem recited by Bono:

"While, like a giant proud and happy
i take my baby in my arms
Fragile, innocent, and alive
like a little bird pushing against my chest.
Abandoned, quiet, and he's save
for an instant, almost sweetly
Destiny appears to me like a dream
and i see myself, old and surrendered
seated there near the coalfire
Waiting for the evening with the anxiety of a child
Just to see him coming back home
The gift of his smile, his words, kindness
is like a promise that can solve the enormous joy
of one of his caresses.
Then i wake up, and i've already forgotten.
But inside of me, the kid's trapped soul advises me
that this newborn child is already
more important to me than that my own life."

It's things like this that make me wish there were more guys like Bono out there.

"I'm very secure with the fact that I'm not black. I'm white, pink and rosy. But I've got soul."
--Bono

“We make music you can have sex to.”
--Bono

“Never trust a man who tells you it's from the heart, never trust a man smoking a cigar, never trust a cowboy or a man who wears shades.”
--Bono

This is a great CD. I bought it because I love his music and because I had to hear Bono recite this poem...
