Stay, and the day would keep its trust.
Stay with the demons you drowned.
Stay with the spirit I found.
Stay, and the night would be enough.
May 10th, 1960
My name is Bono, and I am a rock star. I tell you this not as a boast but more as a kind of confession. Because, in my view, the only thing worse than a rock star is a rock star with a conscience…a celebrity with a cause — oh, dear; oh, dear. But worse yet is a singer with a conscience. A placard-waving, knee-jerking, fellow-traveling activist with a Lexus, and a swimming pool shaped like his head. I’m a singer. You know what a singer is. A singer is someone with a hole in his heart almost the size of his ego. When you need 20,000 people screaming your name in order to feel good about your day, you know you’re a singer.
