Amy Lee: “Sometimes I dream in music. This dark version of U2‘s immortal song was playing in my head as I woke up one morning. I was lingering in that half-awake, half-asleep place, with no images- just darkness, this song, and huge emotions. As I was becoming conscious I just kept thinking “don’t let it go, don’t forget!” And I went straight upstairs and laid down the synth and basic vocal. I had the pleasure of seeing U2 live at MSG this year and it was powerful and inspiring. It made me excited to play live again! This track is still my favorite of theirs. Love is rarely simple, more often it’s tearing your guts out. And I think that’s why this song creeps into my dreams and haunts me. Enjoy!
