One

Lyrics: Bono, Clayton. Edge, Mullen
Music: Bono, Clayton. Edge, Mullen

Played by Warren Haynes with The Dead, and previously in solo performances and with Government Mule.

Is it getting better?
Is it still the same?
Will it make it easier on you
Now you got someone to blame
You say one love, one life, one voice in the night
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you baby if you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well, it's too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus
To all the lepers in your head?
Did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got
We're one, but not the same
We hurt each other, then we do it again

You say love is the temple, love the higher law
Love is the temple, love the higher law
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt
When all you got is hurt

You say love is the temple, love the higher law
Love is the temple, love the higher law
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt
