No one cries like a mother cries
For peace on Earth..."

"And so we're told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes
On New Year's Day"

from "New Year's Day" by the U2

Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away..."

"You can run from love
And if it's really love it will find you
Catch you by the heel
But you can't be numb for love
The only pain is to feel nothing at all
How can I hurt when I'm holding you?..."

from "A Man and a Woman" by U2
Album: "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" - 2004
