what they said
"My favorite opening line to a U2 album: 'There's nothing to stop this being the best day ever.' In the second verse, innocence admonishes experience: 'Now you're at the other end of the telescope, seven billion stars in her eyes, so many stars so many ways of seeing, hey, this is no time not to be alive.'"
- Bono, 2017
