"I came up with the phrase, ‘Love is bigger than anything in its way.’ And I mean it. And that is not an airy-fairy, flowers-in-the-hair version of love. I mean that most of the songs in the album are details of emotional landscapes rather than physical landscapes."
- Bono, 2017

The album Songs of Innocence used to start with 'This Is Where You Can Reach Me,' which was always supposed to be the first song. U2 then changed this to Raised by Wolves, but ultimately decided to "put the songs first", just like on Joshua Tree.
