There’s no risky thing for a man who’s determined to fall
When the world is ours but the world is not your kind of thing
You’re the best thing about me
The best things are easy to destroy
I can see you love her loudly
The best thing about me
Why am I walking away?
Oh you’ve seen enough to know it’s children who teach
You’re the best thing about me
Walking away

The best things are easy to destroy
Why am I

You’re the best thing about me
You’re the best thing about me
You’re the best thing about me
Why am I walking away?
[Chorus: Bono]
Full of shooting stars, brighter as they’re vanishing
[Chorus: Bono]

Why am I
You’re the best thing about me
Why am I walking away?

When she needs you quietly
Shooting off my mouth, that’s another great thing about me
You’re the best thing about me
[Chorus: Bono]
[Bridge: The Edge]
The best thing that ever happened a boy
Walking away
[Post-Chorus: Bono]
Why am I walking away?
[Verse 2: Bono]
The best thing that ever happened a boy
You’re the best thing about me
When you look so good and baby, you don’t even know
You’re the best thing about me
You’re the best thing about me
When you look so good, the pain in your face doesn’t show

You’re still free enough to wake up on a bed or a beach
The best things are easy to destroy
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy
[Post-Chorus: Bono]
[Verse 1: Bono]
I been crying out, "How bad can a good time be?"
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy
I can see what you can’t see
I can see it all so clearly
I have everything but I feel like nothing at all
