The verses are just gut-wrenchingly beautiful.  One of the best moments of the album.  This is when I don't mind Bono in control.  One of their best minimalist songs.

9. I love the mood and sincerity in which Bono is speaking, I believe to himself as well as his children.

7/10

One of two solid tracks on SOE. Not super memorable, though...

5- it was nice but it was basically a re-mix of another song, which wasn't a great song then.  this was an improvement though.
