"I can’t even begin to tell you what it’s like to sing that song. You have to steel yourself. Today I found myself quite raw and emotional on a few things because that song had done that to me. So it’s not something you can switch on and off very easy. A lot of the songs on this album are like that."
- Bono on performing Every Breaking Wave, 2014

The song 'Numb' is about how The Edge felt when he split up with his wife. He felt like he couldn't do anything, he was useless. He felt numb.
