"Deep In The Heart" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
Angel, everything's gonna be alright
Angel, everything's gonna work out tonight
Thirteen years old, sweet as rose
Every petal of her wafer thin
Love will make you mine
Creep up from behind
Get you jumping out of your skin
Angel, it's sink or swim

Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place

Door is closed behind me now
The Window is sealed to shut out the light
Green as the leaves
And the cure of the meadow stain
Do your work, it'll work out right

Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place

The scent of cedar, I can still see her
You can't return to the place you never left
Angel, we'll make it work out tonight
Angel, I wanna be home tonight

Door is closed behind me now
The window is sealed, they shut out the light
Green as the leaves
And the cure of the meadow stain
I do my work, and you'll work out right

Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place

    General CommentNext to Elvis Presley and America... this is one of my fav u2 songs.. and one of the best 'B' side track on the Joshua Tree single.

    The music is so... I can't describe.. its feels very spacious and almost spontaneous. Edges guitar solo also carries that signature 'edge' sound.

    Apparently, the song is about Bono remembering a sexual encounter he had in his fathers house when he was a kid.. Bono remembering this as he was walking through the house one last time (it was being sold).

    General CommentI agree. This is also one of my favorite U2 songs. Bono's voice is so full of emotion and the song feels deep. Bono seems to almost whisper the lines to you as if he were quietly walking you around his father's house. Amazing song.
