I'm currently feelin: pensive pensive
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

"There is a silence that comes to a house when no one can sleep."

I like that lyric. Says a lot to me. I love the whole song, really...

Why does U2 speak so much to so many? Why can't my poetry sound as good as this? Why can't my life be as beautiful as the music that runs through my head? Why do I think I'm addicted to U2? I'm not like a lot of you die-hard fans, who know every single itty-bitty thing about the band and the music...there is a lot I don't know, but I still love their music...

U2 is more than "The Greatest Rock Band In The World" - they are beautiful people, inside and out, and their music says so much - no matter what your interpretation of the music and lyrics, the songs say *something* to everyone who listens.

Don't worry if your poetry doesn't sound that good. That lyric isn't actually Bono's. I think he lifted it from another poem/essay thing.

I don't know what makes U2 so special. I guess the feeling that they give a shit about their fans. That they care about the music they make and about each other. I think, though, that it has less to do with what they set out to accomplish and more to do with the fact that they've had a gift given to them.

well, when I say my poetry doesn't sound as good as U2's lyrics, I don't mean to say it's BAD, it's just not U2 quality good....well, one is...in my humble opinion ;)

That is one of the songs that caused me to fall in love with Achtung Baby. For the past 16+ years, U2's lyrics have been part of my very existance. I just can't explain it. :-)

I know EXACTLY how you feel! I write poetry too. And everytime I hear a U2 song, I'm completely amazed. every time. Bono is such an amazing writer! I don't even know how to put into words my admiration for that, their activism, and the melodic quality of their music.
