Whoa!!! That is probably my second favorite U2 'mood song' (after Ultraviolet Light)... I think that that is one of the most moving songs they've created... Bono's voice is unbelievable... and it carries that Middle Eastern feel to it... I always think of a sandy desert town lined with rows of stucco houses... maybe like a Romeo and Juliet love story or something...

...wow...that was a ramble...

and i have promised
oh to be with you tonight
and for the time that will come

i've always had this visual of a man crouched in a dark, dank hallway near a door, with his head against the wall. on the other side of the door his wife or lover is alternately sobbing and screaming. child birth. the midwife won't let him in. the song is his attempt to control his desperation and fear.

pretty fanciful, no?
