Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you, now
You got someone to blame
You say one love, one life
When it's one need, in the night
One love, we get to share it
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 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 we're not the same
Well, we hurt each other
Then we do it again.

You say love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a 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

One love, one blood
One life, you got to do what you should
One life with each other: sisters, brothers
One life, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One (lone)
One...

Make in it, make in it, higher...

Worth checking out the Cowboy Junkies cover of One on their 21st Century Blues album.

Great song, meanwhile slightly overplayed.

As others have mentioned DMB and TH do get some of that. And look at the comments for Suzanne Vega, Tori Amos and other female singer/songwriters. THEY are getting the full treatment ;-))

You are trying way too hard to find something poor in a great thing.  Just sit back and enjoy, stop over analyzing.  

Hm. I think he does have a point there. I like U2, and I like this song very much. But I have to agree, there's something of what dennis_chary says in many U2-songs. A sort of trying-too-hard. Never heard it before, but now I can't unhear it. Maybe it's something to do with that album, I don't hear it as much in songs from Joshua Tree.
 
one of the best U2 song imho and way better than anything they have churned out recently. 9 from me.

Wow!  Just stumbled across this comment from years ago.  I (like others I presume) had a very similar decision/crossroads in my much younger life that makes me wonder from time to time.  What IF I had gone the other direction?  No regrets but memories to ponder as we all get older.

I'm not sure a truly "reasonable" person would bother arguing who the "greatest band ever" was.  It's a matter of personal taste and aesthetics, there are no hard, scientific facts or proofs.  Qualitative information cannot really be measured.  What logical or "reasonable" method(s) could be used?
Almost did it with this blonde girl ... I was 19. But she went away with the neighbour, they both loved this new u2 song ... And when I hear it now, I only think of my blonde and perfect wife ... Thank u life, thank u u2 from France
Strong 8 tending to 9. One of Bono’s best, but the Mary J Blige version with Bono is a 10

Agreed.  This is a terrific song.  

I think U2 is a fabulous band and Bono's vocals really do seal the deal.  

Some of the song structure is so simple but is SO well done.  
Can never get enough of this song by the boys love it

No doubt, one of their best songs. Well- everything -- written, sung, played, produced. It's a very thoughtful and moving song.

As for U2, I will say I'm not a big fan AND that this is probably the highest I've rated a U2 track (8) because this song seems so damn special to me....and keep playing what you want to BillG!!  Long Live RP!!

U2 does most things right and they are from my generation....not sure why I don't like them that much. I just have a 'meh' reaction to their music. I do appreciate their War album though. Some good solid tracks on that one.

I remember talking about this track on the album as a standout before it became a single. Massive choon.
When released it was 'Lighters in the air'. Now it is 'waving Smartphones with the flashlight turned on'.

Radio Paradise a/k/a Bash Bono.  Sad!
Johnny Cash covers this better!
This band has always annoyed me to anger.
DRIVEL.
Bill...
STOP THE MADNESS 
HOT TAKE ALERT: This song is fine, but no better than that.
one of the regular radio station songs give it a 9 because its a marley covercant give a 10 and looking for new stuff but by rating easily mainstream known stuff it helps shape stuff i am to discover

I got this excellent classic song from the PSD button because I can't afford listening to Talking Heads. I suggest you to use that RP's wonderful feature.

Peace.

I prefer Johnny Cash's version of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" and Nick Cave's "The Mercy Seat", but I tend to agree with jazzdevil. Bono hasn't the greatest voice but he's very convincing when singing about tortured love.  
Not one of my favorites but it's impossible to deny that these are some damn fine lyrics.
Their last truly awesome album.....

Wow. Was it difficult for you to pull yourself away...(restraint exercised); to spend a few minutes scripting that comment?
Also, I disagree.

Even though that's one of the rare U2 songs I'm not keen on (heard too much?... especially on French radios, where it's the only one played daily), for some reason I don't feel like PSD/muting it because it fits so well in RP's playlist, and removing it would paradoxically create a miss.

Imho the song is about trying to face the pain of not only a relationship, but a world if division and strife in humanity.
The overall message is to keep trying to love and to mend/heal/ over come the pain we cause each other.
 
Love that causes pain is not love it's longing. It's best to let it go if it hurts.

Right—to me this is very painful, and beautifully written song about a breakup. Though I never thought it was about sex per se. I think it is a superb song, but it always makes me sad. The lyrics expand to cover "one world" etc at the end, but....
Best song ever!
Great lyric. Great song.
Love is the temple
Love is the higher law.

Wonderful song.

In so many ways, this song is overwrought, melodramatic, even bombastic... and still transcends that all the same to be a tune that I find moving and listenable and enduring.  A lot like "With or Without You" overplaying on the radio and Bono's emoting can't wreck a great song.  
Wow, what a trip, to hear this for the first time in a while... Well I recall hearing it when it came out, too, but then, it was too deep to get into my head at once; I loved other Achtung, Baby! songs more at the time; it took a while to appreciate its nuances.  Now, it really hits hard...
Can't call it a masterpiece, but certainly very fine.  Imo, not even the best song on Achtung...
This is a masterpiece

Probably one of the best songs ever written. Been awhile since I've heard it, made me cry...

You might want to work on your reading comprehension.  There is a NEW COVENANT....

 "The time is coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.

--->  It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers

 "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,"

 ---> For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."

The Holy Spirit reigns inside the least and greatest of us all today.  Keep reading....

Judging from their title...they don't rate it very high either.
This song makes for one heck of a thoroughly effective, pointed reproof, if used in that particular fashion.
