“Your Song Saved My Life”
For the track itself, U2 frontman Bono can be heard singing, “You know your song saved my life / I don’t sing it just so I can get by/ Won’t you hear me when I tell you darlin’/ I sing it to survive”.
“Your song saved my life/ The worst and the best days of my life/ I was broken now I’m open your love keeps me alive/ It keeps me alive”.

Back in September, U2 lead singer Bono joked that he was upset over Matt Damon’s cult status in his local Dalkey area.
Matt Damon endeared himself to the Dalkey locals, having been stranded their in March 2020 after filming for The Last Duel was suspended when the pandemic arrived.
“I’ve lived in this village, or next to this village, for 30 years – this f***** is there for three months and they make him the king of Dalkey!”, Bono joked to GQ Magazine.
He also added, “I mean, there’ll be a statue of him there. I don’t know what it was, and what he did. But I’m very annoyed about it. I’m not happy at all”.
