"Rejoice" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
It's falling, it's falling
And outside the buildings
Are tumbling down
And inside a child on the ground
Says he'd do it again

And what am I to do?
What in the world am I to say?
There's nothing else to do
He says he'll change the world someday
I rejoice

This morning I fell out of bed
When I woke up to what he has said
Everything's crazy
But I'm too lazy to lie

And what am I to do?
Just tell me what am I supposed to say?
And I can't change the world
But I can change the world in me
If I rejoice, whoa
Rejoice

And what am I to do?
Just tell me what am I supposed to say?
And I can't change the world
But I can change the world in me
If I rejoice

I don't know how to change it
Rejoice, and I won't change the world
Rejoice
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

    General CommentA song about dublin, if you hear any live versions, bono tells us this quite often before they start the song.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song. Maybet the song talk about the Stardust Fire in 1981 in Dublin?

    General CommentThis song feels to me like it's about a cocky kid who does stupid shit and is overly inspired and thinks he'll change the world some day. What do you say to him? Nothing, just leave him to figure it out himself.

    General CommentThe centerpiece of an incredible, highly-underrated album. Inspirational. I can't tell how many times I've said to myself, sung to myself, or written out these lines in my life when I was feeling low:

    I can't change the world
    But I can change the world in me
    If I rejoice.
