Into The Heart
by U2

Songfacts®:

  • Lyrically spare, this song is driven by The Edge's guitar work. Bono doesn't come in until the 1:44 mark, singing about going into the heart of a child, a place he can smile.
  • An early U2 song, "Into The Heart" was released in their debut album, Boy, and follows seamlessly from "An Cat Dubh," although it is listed as a separate track. U2 always played it together with "An Cat Dubh" when they did it live.

  • Chris W. from U.s.Boy (1980) I want someone to put this album in my coffin when I pass away. I was born 1980 and if someone found me one day far in the future they could play the album and hear music from the year I was born.
  • Philippe from Montreal, CanadaI think that the fact they did not put in many words push you to better focus on the beauty of the music....great song!
