  1. “Of all of the promises, is this one we could keep?/
    Of all of the dreams, is this one still out of reach.” – that’s cool. Looks like a pretty good song. Doesn’t seem to be any “heavy as a truck” lines 🙂

  7. Even Bono admits that Streets is lyrical nonsence. In an interview with Q (not the recent one), he said he felt embarrassed that there was this great, trancendental music, and that the only thing he could think to sing was, ‘I wanna tear down the walls that hold me inside.’ He thinks it sounds sixth-form-ish.

  9. Even though Bono doesn’t like the intro, I think it works pretty well…Simple, but descriptive…Hands is looking good too…”Last saw your face, in a water colour sky…”
