Biography

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin formed in 1976. The group consists of Bono (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), the Edge (lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). Initially rooted in post-punk, U2's musical style evolved throughout their career, yet has maintained an anthemic sound built on Bono's expressive vocals and the Edge's effects-based guitar textures. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal and sociopolitical themes. Popular for their live performances, the group have staged several ambitious and elaborate tours over their career.

    Lyrics
    See the stone set in your eyes
    See the thorn twist in your side
    I wait for you
    Sleight of hand and twist of fate
    On a bed of nails she makes me wait

    Lyrics
    The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground
    There's no room, no space to rent in this town
    You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care,
    The traffic is stuck and you're not moving anywhere.
    You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place

    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

    I can't believe the news today
    Oh, I can't close my eyes and make it go away

    I have climbed highest mountains
