"You are not just The Boss, you’re the chairman and the head of the union and the car park attendant.. you’re the comrade, the bandmate, the lover, the farmer, the husband, the father. I don’t know if this is about a father saying goodbye to his daughter as she sets off to find her own life… I don’t need to know. It’s about everybody who has to let go of something perfect. There Goes My Miracle is the greatest singing and writing of your life, I guess it took your whole life. And yes, some of us feel like we’ve lived it with you."
- Bono on Bruce Springsteen's There Goes My Miracle, 2020

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.
