''The line "And you give yourself away" is about how I feel in U2 at times - exposed. I'm not going to do many interviews this year. Because there's a cost to my personal life, and a cost to the group as well." - Bono
''The refrain is the most important part of the song because it signifies a release of mental tension, which is when the 'Aah-aah' comes out. That is what giving yourself away is, musically." - Bono
"I was at least two people: the person who is so responsible, protective and loyal and the vagrant and idler in me who just wants to run from responsibility. I thought these tensions were going to destroy me but actually, in truth, it is me. That tension, it turns out, is what makes me as an artist." - Bono
