Definitely. I never thought I'd long for the Titanic theme song, but you made me do that.

Bono again last night confirmed that it is the last song on SOE...

2 wows:
Wow, the end is here (possibly)
Wow, if that is the last song, just imagine songs 1-5!

Perhaps the end is here as far as new songs, and aside for SOA (if that is real) the well is dry...

I think you're reading way too much into the lyric.

I agree. Would Bono really flat out use "The end is here" to conclude U2's final album? I doubt that he would be so pretentious.

Did Bono go and live in a hole when he sang about living like a mole?

I still think the album will be called SOE, but the last few songs will be labelled as (SOA)
Kind of a double album feel and last album...

Nope.  Willie says there is another separate album to come sometime after 2018.  He should know because he probably planning all his work forward (I'm sure he still does stuff other than U2).

I'm going to be in the minority and say that the beginning half is way better the the second half which sounds jumbled and anti climatic. I feel bono needs to back off at the end as he over shadows the guitar. That being said as the tour has prgesssed they've seemed to be fixing those problems.

Yes, this is the problem now for U2.

Bono cant just shut up and let the rest of the band play.

I always thought of u2 as a great band with an average singer.

Bono and his ego think it is the exact opposite.

Bono, Shut Up and let the other boys just play some music.

This is the best rendition of this song going around at the moment from Kimmel

U2 back in form.

One great piece of music.

"The Little Things That Give You Away" 
The night gave you song
 A light had been turned on
 You walked out in the world
 Like you belong there

 As easy as a breeze
 Each heart was yours to please
 Is it only me who sees
 Thereís something wrong there

 Oh no la la, Iím not a ghost now
 I can see you
 You need to see me

 Itís the little things that give you away
 The words you cannot say
 Your big mouth in the way
 Itís the little things that tease and betray
 As the hunted I become the prey
 Itís the little things
 The little things that give you away

 I saw you on the stairs
 You didnít notice I was there
 Thatís Ďcause you were talking at me
 Not to me

 You were high above the storm
 A hurricane being born
 But this freedom
 It might cost you your liberty

 Itís the little things that give you away
 The words you cannot say
 Your big mouth in the way
 Itís the little things that tease and betray
 As the hunted I become the prey
 Itís the little things
 The little things that give you away

 Sometimes
 I canít believe my existence
 See myself from a distance
 I canít get back inside
 Sometimes
 The air is so anxious
 All my thoughts are so reckless
 And all of my innocence has died
 Sometimes
 I wake at four in the morning
 When all the darkness is swarming
 And it covers me in fear
 Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
 Full of anger and grieving
 So far away from believing
 That any song will reappear
 Sometimes
 The end is not coming
 Itís not coming
 The end is here
 Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
 Sometimes, sometimes
 When the painted glass shatters
 And youíre the only thing that matters
 But I canít see you through the fears
 Sometimes
 The end isnít coming
 Itís not coming
 The end is here
 Sometimes

No but he did live the next two years of his life underground in a burrow.
