Hey, I was wondering, when did Bono start adding the "Do you hear us coming" bit to One, and where is that bit from?

He's been doing that for ages. If I recall correctly, he sang that bit during U2: go Home, Live at Slane castle; which was 1st Sept 2001.

He's been doing it since ZooTV. I think it's a classic case of Bono thinking up extra lyrics after the song's been recorded and pressed. He's stated in interviews that he never really finishes the songs, to which Edge complained that Bono adds extra lyrics over the guitar solos when they later play the old songs =P The lyric itself is a continuation of the "You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl" line.

Thanks, that's very interesting! I've been wondering if it's something he wrote, or a snippet from someone else's song.

Poor Edge. (:

I've to say I love that part, and now when I listen to the album version I almost always add it in the end, but I'm still happy U2 released One without that part to the album. It's great at the end of the song in concerts, but I don't know how much I would've liked it if it was after the "You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl" part.

I sing all the live bits when I listen to the album versions. Being a U2 nerd is so fun <3
