You bury your treasure where it can't be found
But your love is like a secret that's been passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house where no one can sleep
I guess it's the price of love
I know it's not cheap

(I always found it funny that on some Zoo Tv versions Bono covers his mouth at the end of this verse as if he's spilled the beans so to say)

Too many great ones to mention. One that's been stuck in my head all day:

If the sky turns to purple,
And the moon turns to blood,
Will you dig me out,
When I'm face down in the mud?

"...sometimes I feel like I don't know"
"... I believe in the kingdom come"
"...we were as close together as a bride and groom"
"...only love unites our hearts"
"... she's at the bus stop with the News of the World and The Sun, sun here it comes..."

The News of the World and The Sun weren't published on the same day.

I'm not afraid of anything in this world,
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard,
I'm just trying to find a decent melody,
A song that I can sing in my own company

Give me one more chance and I'm gonna make you sing
Give me half a chance ride on the waves that you bring
Your honey child to a swarm of bees
Gonna blow right through you like a breeze
give me one last dance and we'll slide down the surface of things

Take me higher, take me higher, you take me higher, you take me higher

It's everything I wish I didn't know.

and of course- In my dream I was drowning my sorrows, my sorrows they learned to swim.

Little sister, don't you worry 'bout a thing today
Took the heat from the sun
And little sister, I know that everything is not okay
But you're like honey on my tongue

and

Slow down my beating heart

You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice

I've been in every black hole
At the altar of the dark star
My body's now a begging bowl
That's begging to get back
Begging to get back to my heart
To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my unconsciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

A man dreams one day to fly
A man takes a rocket ship into the skies
He lives on a star that's dying in the night
And follows in the trail, the scatter of light

Stay with the demons you drown
 Stay with the spirit I found
 Stay and the night would be enough

One of my favorite U2 songs, so slad I heard it LIVE last summer...
