Line(s) of the Day #One

U2 One

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it’s all I got
We’re one
But we’re not the same
We hurt each other
Then we do it again

Taken from the song One by the Irish rock band U2, from their seventh studio album Achtung Baby (1991). Widely considered one of the best songs ever written, it showcases the songwriting ability of their lead singer Bono, who has demonstrated it in other songs such as If God would send his Angels and Beautiful Day.
