"I hit an iceberg in my life
You know I'm still afloat
You lose your palace, lose your wife
In the queue for the lifeboat
You gotta put the women and children first
But you've got an unquenchable thirst for New York."

Love the play on words...

I love singing this part!!!! and then the guitars and drums come in....

"Baby, Baby, Baby light my way." It had heavy influence to one of the greatest songs of the 2000's.

"I have money now
It's me that is spent"

-North Star

A sentiment many of us might never feel in our livetimes, but it goes with the whole Terminus theme of winter (or the mythical Songs of Ascent)

"Faraway, so close
 Up with the static and the radio.
 With satellite television
 You can go anywhere:
 Miami, New Orleans
 London, Belfast and Berlin."

One of the best lyrics of Bono's career

My father is a rich man, he wears a rich man's cloak
Gave me the keys to his kingdom coming
Gave me a cup of gold
He said 'I have many mansions
And there are many rooms to see'
But I left by the back door
And I threw away the key

another great lyric from Bono

Well I don't know why a man
Search for himself in his woman's eyes
No, I don't know why a man
Sees the truth but needs the lies

My love is restless as the wind
She moves like a shadow across my skin
She left with my conscience
And I don't want it back
It just gets in the way

Lyrics from Every Breaking Wave...  love this entire song, but sitting here on this cold winter day looking at the bare trees all frozen, I thought of this line.. hope this song will be released, it's excellent in my opinon..

Like every silent leaf
 On the breeze
 Winter wouldn’t leave it alone

&
You know
 That my heart
 Is the same place yours has been

Another huge fan of this. I don't know why but this lyric really spoke to me when I first heard it.

Also "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".
