Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way
by U2

Album: Songs of Experience (2017)
  • The door is open to go through
    If I could I would come, too
    But the path is made by you
    As you're walking start singing and stop talking

    Oh, if I could hear myself when I say
    (Oh love) love is bigger than anything in its way

    So young to be the words of your own song
    I know the rage in you is strong
    Write a world where we can belong
    To each other and sing it like no other

    Oh, if I could hear myself when I say
    (Oh love) love is bigger than anything in its way

    If the moonlight caught you crying on Killiney Bay
    Oh, sing your song
    Let your song be sung
    If you listen you can hear the silence say
    "When you think you're done
    You've just begun"

    Love is bigger than anything in its way
    Love is bigger than anything in its way
    Love is bigger than anything in its way
    Love is bigger than anything in its way
    Love is bigger than anything in its way Writer/s: Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Larry Mullen, Paul David Hewson

  • Theresa1 from U.s.What a truly beautiful song. After the news came out that Bono had some un-named brush with "mortality" - and that he wrote these songs thinking that he might not even be around to hear them played; these songs took on new meaning (and the ones I like, preciousness). Bono said, in a documentary, that the songs on this new album were like "letters" to various person(s). I heard it alluded to that this was to his sons/children/family. As much as I strongly spiritually object to some of Bono's songs, and some performances/videos/speeches/writings and teachings; for the good things messaged, how could a human being not love this guy (and band). I hope he/they get right with Jehovah/Yahweh and live forever. To lose him/them would be heartbreaking. That being said; since Bono likely put out this song too, thinking he might not be around, I find it both beautiful, but also profoundly devastating. The beginning comes off like it could be a wedding processional - or a graduation; or some other life's doorway, for one's child. The very thought that this could be a song, for one's children, for a future meaningful event, when a parent might not be there, but so wants to be, and is leaving a message of love, life advice, encouragement, and hope, is absolutely devastating. It's 5-star crying/wiping tears material. Familial love is so strong and so special. Makes me think - what song would I leave for my kids and grandkids.....I don't want to die though - I want Armageddon and the God's new world Kingdom to roll on in soon (enough of all this trouble stuff). Please do not die, please be well. "Write a world where we can belong...."
