"In the Name of the Father" as written by and Gavin Friday Bono....
Come to me
Come lie beside me
Oh, don't deny me your love

Make sense of me
Walk through my doorway
Don't hide in the hallway
Oh love, step over

I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down

In the name of whiskey
In the name of song
You didn't look back
You didn't belong

In the name of reason
In the name of hope
In the name of religion
In the name of dope

In the name of freedom
You drifted away
To see the sun shining
On some one else's day

In the name of United
And the BBC
In the name of Georgie Best
And LSD

In the name of the Father
And his wife the Spirit
You said you did not
They said you did it

In the name of justice
In the name of fun
In the name of the Father
In the name of the Son

Call to me
No one is listening
I'm waiting to hear from you, love

Stay with me
It's cold in the ground
But there's peace in the sound
Of the white and the black
Spilling over

I'll follow you down

    General Commentwell, nobody has commented on this yet so I just thought I'd say I love this song!
    by itself I'm not sure I would appreciate it as much but if anyone really wants to get the full impact of it you should watch the film, In the Name of the Father, which it was created for. A very powerful film, and a true story. This song is how the film opens and it fits so well.

    noweven by itself as a song it's really dramatic for me and although it's context is sad I really enjoy the song. It's the beat I think, and the variation in speed throughout. Just a really well done piece.

    oh and it's only under Bono here but it's usually credited as both Bono and Gavin Friday.
