One day (and it seems such a long time ago), I was sitting down in front of HBO waiting for some movie to begin. There was a concert of some old rock band that I knew very little about then. There were four of them: the lead singer was all in black and drenched in sweat; the bassist looked a lot like my father when he was younger; the drummer looked like he was in his twenties; the guitarist reminded me of Richard Gere.
I wasn't a rock fan then, and I wasn't paying much attention till this one
song was sung. It changed my life forever:( Collapse )
The song is so beautiful. The guitar, the bassline, the beat, and the anguished vocals... After watching that, I felt like I was there
, I was Bono, I was with the thousand-strong audience, I was the girl, drained but longing for more. My heart just leaped to my throat at the bit where the heart lights up and Bono clutches the girl to his chest like they were the only two people in a world that was coming to an end. And I have never even seen them live...
So that's my story... And U2 and I lived happily ever after.
