"All Because of You" from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

This song has been in my head ALL day! Ever since I woke up. And then I mix up the original version with the album version. gah!
This song used to frustrate the hell out of me cause I would usually blast CoBL and then this high pitched guitar note would pierce my ears.
However, it really is one of the greater songs on the album. It should be near the top of Edge's resume because that guitar break in the middle is pure genius. Especially paired with Bono's scratchy "Waaaaa!"

sapphires13 posted a while back that the "I am" from the song is really a reference to Lord. Oh Bono, you clever little elf. Get me to sing about religion without knowing it...again.
:)
Genius:
I’m not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

// All Because Of You

I was born a child of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
And it left me no illusion

I saw you in the curve of the moon
In the shadow cast across my room
You heard me in my tune
When I just heard confusion

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am… I am

I like the sound of my own voice
I didn’t give anyone else a choice
An intellectual tortoise
Racing with your bullet train

Some people get squashed crossing the tracks
Some people got high rises on their backs
I’m not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am… I am

I’m alive
I’m being born
I just arrived, I’m at the door
Of the place I started out from
And I want back inside

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am

And the video of course is a favorite of mine. Awesome. They played it before the Maroon 5 concert in West Palm Beach. I must have been the only person jamming. And I don't care.

I hope you all are safe tonight. I say a prayer for England this evening.
