Press play above for "One" from U2's 1991 Achtung Baby


I consider "One" among the best lyrical creations ever. I put it on this page because it means something different to almost everyone who listens. In our various muses we are all one - but we're not the same.



by U2


Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame

You say... One love, One life
When it's one need in the night
One love, We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth

You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Well it's... Too late, tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other, One...

Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much

More than a lot
You gave me nothing

Now it's all I got
We're one, but we're not the same
Well we hurt each other
Then we do it again

You say... Love is a temple
Love a higher law, Love is a temple

Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love, One blood, One life
You got to do what you should
One life, with each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One... One


Hold on to your paintbrush - it's going to be an artsy ride...

This section of the site is dedicated to original amateur art, music and prose created exclusively by people I know. Unapologetically politically incorrect, some of these works are personal or otherwise inappropriate for a public site, so I set up a separate password-protected area. If you have your user name and password already, select the button below to enter The Muses Galleries.

The Muses Galleries are organized in nine sections representing the nine Greek goddesses of inspiration, learning, the arts and culture. In mythology, the Muses were daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne. They inspired poets, musicians and artists. The words music, museum and mosaic are all derived from muse.
