"Meeting and negotiating with politicians is easy compared to sitting in front of Adam, Edge and Larry trying to explain what was going on with the show. It's wonderful, these are my blood brothers. It's family. And no one can hurt you more than family."
- Bono, 2019

Part of the inspiration for the lyrics of One reportedly grew out of a note Bono had sent to the Dalai Lama declining an invitation to a festival called Oneness. The note included, in part, the line, “one – but not the same,” a line which would later appear in the song’s lyrics. That idea of “oneness,” Bono would later say, was a key concept for the song.
