I Believe in Love

It was never my intent to publish lyrical wisdom from the same band (let alone the same album) on consecutive days but circumstancs prevail. Yesterday Bono was named Person of the Year by Time magazine for his humanitarian efforts to end poverty.

“Don’t believe in rock ‘n roll can really change the world as it spins in revolution, spirals and turns – I, I believe in love.”

Song: God Part II

Artist: U2

Album: Rattle & Hum

Year: 1988

This song was written as a tribute to John Lennon.

I Need Your Love

To my spark on our anniversary……

Like thunder needs rain
Like the preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a blind man’s cane
Like a needle in a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love
Like a fighter’s rage
His dreams in a cage
Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love

Song: Hawkmoon 269

Artist: U2
