my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

Pride (In the Name of Love)

One man come in the name of love/
One man come and go/
One man come, he to justify/
One man to overthrow


In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed up on an empty beach.
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the evening, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
--U2

I love him. Every time I hear him speak, I feel that thrill that only a really inspiring person can provoke.

Makes me think of another song too: "How long shall they kill our prophets, While we stand aside and look?"

God bless him.
