I love this song :) BB King and Bono work really well together, and the lyrics are great.

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves
Before love rescued me
I was a fighter, I could turn on a thread
Now I stand accused of the things I've said


Love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town


I used to make love under a red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown
But I left her standing before love came to town


I ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream
The notes were turning blue, I was dazing in a dream
As the music played I saw my life turn around
That was the day before love came to town


When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town


[Repeat Chorus]


I was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
I threw the dice when they pierced his side
But I've seen love conquer the great divide


When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

You saw him in concert? That's so cool! I wish he'd come here. Of course then I'd have to convince one of my friends to go with me and that would NOT be an easy task. I couldn't even get anyone to come to the International Jazz festival with me. Oh well, I could always take my dad! :D

Hey Kyrie, did you know With or Without You was supposed to be part of a trilogy? They never recorded the other two songs, but they were supposed to all explain each other to get the full meaning.

No, I did not know that. Wonder why they never did the other 2? Oh well, it is still a pretty cool song by itself! :)

Hey Jason, don't know if you can get the Superbowl over there or not. But did you happen to catch U2's halftime performance? :D I admit that I don't know the 1st thing about football, but they put on a pretty good show, so it was well worth sitting through the 1st half! ;)
