Every breaking wave

Paul Bono Hewson is one of my few heroes in life.

I saw my first U2 concert before the band had even released their first record.

I was in Paris playing a tournament with my team and last night on the trip I and some school/team mates went to a club on the street were we stayed at a hotel. They did let us in even though we were certainly too young. A band was playing.

The band leader started the show by saying, ‘We are a band from Ireland, and we call ourselves U2″. I was 15 years old. It changed my life.

I still listen to U2 every day.

Here is the lyrics and video of one of my favourite U2 songs, Every Breaking Wave.

Every breaking wave on the shore

Tells the next one there’ll be one more

And every gambler knows that to lose

Is what you’re really there for

Summer I was fearless

Now I speak into an answer phone

Like every fallen leaf on the breeze

Winter wouldn’t leave it alone


If you go

If you go your way and I go mine

Are we so

Are we so helpless against the tide

Baby, every dog on the street

Knows that we’re in love with defeat

Are we ready to be swept off our feet

And stop chasing every breaking wave

Every sailor knows that the sea

Is a friend made enemy

And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is

To live without intimacy

I thought I heard the captain’s voice

But it’s hard to listen while you preach

Like every broken wave on the shore

This is as far as I could reach
