(Walk, walk)

Johnny Swallow
Stop watching
I take you by the hand

Stop inside
Paul and me
We walk by
Walking silent

I saw, it was burning


On fire
Was a village on fire

    General Comment"Johnny Swallow" was purportedly the name given to one of the Lypton Village members (the now-legendary gang comprising Bono and his close friends from their North Dublin neighborhood).

    "Paul" is no doubt referring to Bono himself, as his real name is Paul Hewson.

    As for what the song actually means (if anything)... probably nothing too deep, lol!
