You know i need you, to be strong.
You know, i need you to be strong.
Are both completely different. That is why music is powerful, people make their own explanations.
Oh crap, i always thought about it as the first one (because Bono shortly pauses after "you" and not after "know"
Never saw the 2nd meaning there...
But i'm just gonna stick with my old thought, i believe it's better
Thanks to everyone who answered me!
Now everything is clear. yet I know that I'm a bad translator
As far as Ultraviolet goes, I'd definitely interpret the song as "You know I need you, to be strong" since the following lines are "Feel like trash, you make me feel clean" and "I'm in the black, can't see or be seen".
I think it's Bono saying that he needs this other person in order to be strong and when he is feeling one thing, the other person make him feel something else, something better. So it's I need you in order to be strong myself. (I need to have you around me so that I can be strong)
