U2: “One Tree Hill”
It’s hard to know what song to post following such a tragedy as happened on Monday at the Boston Marathon. Boston was my home for many years, so it’s especially heartbreaking to see such insanity happening in such familiar territory.
But “One Tree Hill,” from U2’s 1987 album, The Joshua Tree, feels right.
This one is for everyone in Boston.
You run like river, on like a sea
You run like a river runs to the sea
And in the world a heart of darkness
A fire zone
