"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
On New Year's Day"
from "New Year's Day" by the U2
Album: "War" - 1983
The lyric had its origins in a love song from Bono to his wife, but was subsequently reshaped and inspired by the Polish Solidarity movement.
In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine placed the single at #427 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time"
"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
