I cannot write a just introduction today. I just hope that this will help you.

It's not just lyrics.


Is it getting better, or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you, now you got someone to blame?
You say one love, one life, when it's one need in the night.
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you baby if you don't care for it.

Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love and you want me to go without.
Well, it's too late tonight to drag the past out into the light.
We're one, but we're not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other... one

Have you come here for forgiveness,
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head
Did I ask too much, more than a lot
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got.
We're one, but we're not the same.
Well, we hurt each other, then we do it again.

You say love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a temple, love the higher law.
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on to what you got, when all you got is hurt.

One love, one blood, one life, you got to do what you should.
One life with each other: sisters, brothers.
One life, but we're not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One, one.

"They're more than just lyrics."

That's what I meant to say.

reminding me of the show i went to at continental airlines arena last year.... they played one and, on a screen behind the stage, showed all the names of the victims of september 11 in a scroll, kind of like watching credits.

i grabbed my best friend and cried.

I remember in Oakland 11/16 I was behind the stage this time. Although I'd already seen the names scrolled at a previous show, I started crying when I saw individual names reflected on the wall behind the stage from the screen. Seeing each name reminded me that these were just people who were going about their lives not knowing what was going to happen to them that day. I thought about their friends and families they left behind, I was a mess at that moment.

This song gets me everytime. Never more than today. I was there with lightningspark at that U2 show, and honestly it is one of the most vivid memories I have. It was also touching when I saw U2 at MSG and they played this song and scrolled the names. A random girl that was sitting next to me broke down and started bawling. I never caught her name, but I just held her hand and that was enough.

No other words even come close to expressing so much truth. Here's to better days. Cheers.
