Favorite Bridge

Was listening to One Tree Hill last night, I have always loved the bridge in that song, so bare and simple, perfect fit for what came before and was to follow.

What are some of your favorite U2 bridges.

It's funny you should mention that because I was thinking not too long ago about how many U2 songs have great bridges! Some of my favorites:

The Fly
Miracle Drug
Kite
The Unforgettable Fire
Sunday Bloody Sunday
One
Walk On
Breathe
Do You Feel Loved
Mercy (original version)
Crumbs from Your Table
One Tree Hill
Iris (Hold Me Close)
Gone
Get on Your Boots
Rejoice
Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens white rose
The doors you open
I just can't close

Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, your gypsy heart
Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, and don't look back
Come on now love, don't you look back!

That's a bridge right ? The part of music unlike the verses and the choruses ?

All good choices...I will throw in White As Snow: "and the water was icy..."...for the singing, not the lyrics.
