What is Edge singing in Iris (live)?

Is he just making vocalizing sounds?

It's too beautiful, at the start of the song before verse 1. When Bono is wailing "Iris? Iris!"

If you mean the high falsetto, that's Chris Martin. I don't think he's saying anything, just moaning.

I prefer the original. I find it even better than City Of Blinding Lights. This masterpiece, to me, could have been called "Streets II"!

Chris Martin did the high pitched vocals in the album version as well.
