Bono + Edge on Howard Stern: Get Out Of Your Own Way.discussion + performance
In the scheme of things this song seems like a sequel to Original of the Species which was also dedicated to one of Bono's daughters.

+ Bono finds what we're looking for The music, credited as ever to all four members of U2, soon gets under your skin. + Experience counts on U2’s return to form Thematically, the new album breaks from the claustrophobic nostalgia that made Songs of Innocence heavy going. + Songs of Experience by U2 ranks alongside the band's greatest work This is truly a cracker of an album on first, second and third listens. Living with it for an extended spell will determine whether it hits the heights of a Joshua Tree, an Achtung Baby or the cruelly underrated Pop.

Love came Hard

CB-lovecamehard

Love is a form of prejudice. You love what you need, you love what makes you feel good, you love what is convenient. How can you say you love one person when there are ten thousand people in the world that you would love more if you ever met them? But you’ll never meet them. All right, so we do the best we can. Granted. But we must still realize that love is just the result of a chance encounter. Most people make too much of it. On these grounds a good fuck is not to be entirely scorned. But that’s the result of a chance meeting too. You’re damned right. Drink up. We’ll have another.

"I've had enough of romantic love Yeah, I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up"

Romantic love, in the full sense of the term, is an emotion possible only to the man (or woman) of unbreached self-esteem: it is his response to his own highest values in the person of another—an integrated response of mind and body, of love and sexual desire. Such a man (or woman) is incapable of experiencing a sexual desire divorced from spiritual values

HER EYES REMAIN FIXED UPON THE HORIZON

HorizonGIRLcam

"SHE SEEMS SO COOL, SO FOCUSED, SO QUIET, YET HER EYES REMAIN FIXED UPON THE HORIZON. YOU THINK YOU KNOW ALL THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT HER IMMEDIATELY UPON MEETING HER, BUT EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW IS WRONG. PASSION FLOWS THROUGH HER LIKE A RIVER OF BLOOD. SHE ONLY LOOKED AWAY FOR A MOMENT, AND THE MASK SLIPPED, AND YOU FELL. ALL YOUR TOMORROWS START HERE."
Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things
