"Life is short but it's the longest thing you'll ever do,
the worst, the curse, was when that dream came true ;
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself,
Hell is a place where you don't need any help,
When I first met you your face was like snow
Wherever I went, you, you wanted to go ;
Your face, your grace, your lipstick case
A-17 you put it down on the ground,
Don't put your faith in a clown"
"Grace overpowers karma. Grace rewards where rewards are not justified."
- Bono, 2000
did you know
In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
