"It's called Thank You for the Day. 'There's no storm on the seas. You're just bent over in the breeze. There's no midnight, please. You're just on your knees. There's a harbor and a safe port, but what was is now not. There was no price to pay. Thank you for the day.' So I don't know where that comes from, but it keeps coming! It interrupts you when you're trying to get your job done."
- Bono on working on songs all the time, 2006

The versions of A Sort Of Homecoming and Bad included in the Wide Awake In America EP sound like live recordings but they were actually recorded during two soundchecks of the Unforgettable Fire tour in Europe. The audience noise was mixed in afterwards.
