"It's called Thank You for the Day. 'There's no storm on the seas. You're just bent over in the breeze. There's no midnight, please. You're just on your knees. There's a harbor and a safe port, but what was is now not. There was no price to pay. Thank you for the day.' So I don't know where that comes from, but it keeps coming! It interrupts you when you're trying to get your job done."
- Bono on working on songs all the time, 2006
