Breathe (Alternate Version) bits and pieces
« on: February 19, 2013, 12:13:18 AM »
A shame we didn't get the whole song but you can see what Bono had written and what was cut out here --

thanks to Sherry Lawrence at

a few changes and additions from Aaron's version

We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown

Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out

(fades to interview clip)

All those who stuck together
Fist in air now know this, that
Real division is not a scar on the land
But in the heart of a man
Who began as a kiss
Not to resist
And not a fist
Now an open hand
An open face , an open page
(Where history might rewrite its rage)

(fades to interview clip)

Sing your heart out
This love cannot be beat
I'm neither down or out
There's nothing you have that I need
Well I can breathe

(fades to interview clip)

I'm so free
