Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and groom
We ate the food, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You were talking about the end of the world

I took the money
I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You lead me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

Love, love, love
Love
Love, love
Love, love, love
Love (love)
Love, love

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret and waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait
'Til the end of the world

    General CommentI LOVE this song.
    I've always said there isn't enough insight into Judas Iscariot, and it always seems that he is overlooked by Christians. But the way I see it is, Jesus was destined to die, and one of those poor disciples had to betray him, unfortunatly for him, Judas was the unlucky one.
    This song is probably the only song that gives an effective insight into Judas. And I must admit, its a pretty believeable conversation, maybe just a little more...poetic. But Bono has a fantastic way with words and this song only goes to prove it.
    My favourite line from this song is

    'In the garden I was playing the tart,
    I kissed your lips and broke your heart.'
