"The sound of 'Zooropa' as a whole is so out there and experimental, and every song is uniquely awesome ('Lemon's' imagery, 'Daddy's Gonna Pay's' intro, 'Zooropa's' powerful transition in the middle)."
"'Zooropa' is incredible. The transition into 'and I have no compass' is powerful every time I hear it, and the last line 'She's gonna dream up the world she wants to live in, she gonna dream out loud' has always stood out to me."
I love music.

"My ideas about love are probably very unromantic. I see love as a decision not made in the heat of the moment. I see it as an enduring thing that doesn't depend on feelings to verify it."

Part of the inspiration for the lyrics of One reportedly grew out of a note Bono had sent to the Dalai Lama declining an invitation to a festival called Oneness. The note included, in part, the line, “one – but not the same,” a line which would later appear in the song’s lyrics. That idea of “oneness,” Bono would later say, was a key concept for the song.
