"All Because of You" as written by Paul Allen Crosby, Christopher Jon Dabaldo, David A. Novotny, Joseph Scott Sappington and Wayne A. Swinny....
I was born a child of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
It left me no illusion

I saw you in the curve of the moon
In the shadow cast across my room
You heard me in my tune
When I just heard confusion

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am, I am

I like the sound of my own voice
I didn't give anyone else a choice
An intellectual tortoise
Racing with your bullet train

Some people get squashed crossing the tracks
Some people got high-rises on their backs
I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am, I am

I'm alive, I'm being born
I just arrived, I'm at the door
Of the place I started out from
And I want back inside

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I am

    General CommentWell, I saw an interview with Bono on MTV and he states that this song is a love song to the Who! It is sort of whoish in sound isn't it?

    General CommentThis song could be about anything. God, kids, his wife, the fans, anything.

    General CommentThis song IS ABOUT GOD. If you look at the Chorus, Bono sings 'All because of you, I AM'.

    In the Bible, when Moses speaks to the burning bush, he asks who he should tell the egyptians sent him. Gods answer...

    'I AM WHO I AM, tell them I AM sent you'

    This is therefore God's name and Bono is telling God thats its all because of him, I AM.

    If you have the special limited edition CD/DVD/Booklet version of the new album, yoiu will see that one of the pages in the booklet is about this song. It has I AM in the middle and about a quote from the Bible, take of your shoes because your on Holy ground blah blah blah.

    For further reference read Exodus 3...

    General CommentRoss Curfew is right on about this song. No doubt this song is about God and how he has saved one or all members of U2, except maybe Adam whom i have heard is not a Christian. Regardless its a great song. I love that U2 has stuck with songs about God since there first album.

    General CommentGreat scream Bono! And sung with great passion as well. But this song scares me a little...like it is about death...l hope U2 is around for a long time, but it makes me nervous...a farewell quality to it. Yes there is a deep gratefulness for existence expressed to the creator. the more I listen to thjis album, the more I like it! U2 comes through again!
