what they said
"I think some people sing for very desperate reasons and there’s no amount of money you can pay them. That is a kind of vulnerability there. You sing to have fun, you sing to show off, you sing in the bath. But there’s another reason some people sing and I wanted to write that song."
- Bono on Your Song Saved My Life, 2021
