Hello Hello!!

September 11th, 2003

They're more than just lyrics. @ 08:30 am


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.

I visited new york last march and walked around ground zero...it was all very moving, the flowers, the messages...and the deep chasm where so much life had once been. I was walking down the gray wall with the messages and i was stopped cold when i saw, simply in chalk,


and i just looked at it, and i heard the riff and the words spinning through my head and my eyes started to tear up. Music can mean so much when it needs to do that much. And its absolutely right, every lyric is truth, right there. If you see God, if you see people, in a rock song, or some music, or then it's become something more than that. May the song bring you through.

we had a memorial service for september 11th at my school the week after it happened, & they played that song during the silence & the lighting of the candles. i thought the song fit perfectly, & was surprised they would think to pick it.

I agree with all the comments. There's a reason One is my all-time favourite U2 song. It's amazing and I don't see how it can ever be bettered.

Ditto what everyone has said. One was, is and will always be my favourite, even if it does make me want to cry.
