Gnecco is 1000x better than Bono. And I consider myself to be a U2 fan.
This song is my fave on the album, makes me well up when I hear it. It's so utterly beautiful, both sonically and lyrically. He's got so much love for his son, whom he wrote the song for, that it makes my heart ache.
Mercy (album) is also a MAJOR step-up from Precious, and was well-worth waiting the 6 years for!
