special meanings

Here is a question to everyone:

Is there any U2 lyric that holds special meaning to you, personally?


I have 2 answers. The first is the last verse of "Summer Rain":
"It's not why you're running
It's where you're going
It's not what you're dreaming
But what you're gonna do
It's not where you're born
It's where you belong
It's not how weak
But what will make you strong"
This has always been inspiration for me when I feel like I'm going to be stuck in the life I'm living forever. Especially the 4 lines have kept me going during more trying parts of my life (to say it simple, I dont have a great family or home relationship).

Also the second lyric that has always cut me deep are from "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own":
"I don’t need, I don’t need to hear you say
That if we weren’t so alike
I’d like you a whole lot more"
From the first moment I heard this, I was reminded of my "relationship" with my brother. Everyone has said to me my whole life the reason he hates me is because we are the same person.

These are the two lyrics that mean so much personally to me. I will always love the last verse of "Summer Rain" and will always be haunted by the line from "SYCMIOYO".

What about the rest of you?
