"I often use words not for what they mean but for what they sound like, the way they bump up against other words or things like that. I'm more interested in impression than detail at the moment."
- Bono on song writing
The album Songs of Innocence used to start with 'This Is Where You Can Reach Me,' which was always supposed to be the first song. U2 then changed this to Raised by Wolves, but ultimately decided to "put the songs first", just like on Joshua Tree.
