I read an interview where Bono said that it was a really heavy question, and if they'd put a question mark after it, it would have made the song too intimidating or something like that, because everyone wants to be loved.

Or something to that effect. If I'm completely off the mark, someone say something (because it's only 7 am and I'm not awake).

Hmmmm... kinda makes me wonder about the punctuation in "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses"!

I don't remember hearing if U2 meant anything heavy by it, but countless Irish CDs I have leave off pretty important punctuation all the time. It's always bugged me. *shrug*

It always seemed to me like a sarcastic kind of comment on the situation in the song - this is what's going on, blah, blah, "is this love". Kind of rhetorical and demanding of the listener as opposed to a real question that has two possible answers.

If that makes sense. Or like everyone else, maybe I'm just rambling in my medication-induced fuzzy state.
