''It just came out. I had no idea what it meant, but it got to the point where I couldn't even be in the studio when we were recording it sometimes. It left such a deep impression on me. It's the kind of song that the pen does the writing, and you don't even know where it came from. But I feel that it's stuff that's floating around at times, and you have to grasp it. It's kind of flying around in the air, and you just have to be open enough to let that flow through you.'' - Mick Jones
''It ended up being a song that brought a lot of people together. I hear these days that it's a song that a lot of people play at their weddings.'' - Mick Jones
