- Bono, 2021

The song 'I Fall Down' is about a girl Bono knew named Julie. She's the daughter of a wealthy lawyer in New York, who ended up moving to Ireland and becoming involved in the same Bible group U2 were in. She later became involved with Pod, a roadie for U2 at the time, the 'John' in the song.
