U2: “Song for Someone” is Written for The Good Men Out There

Good men need a song. Not a song of anger, or fire, but a song that calls them by name.

Someone…

You have scars? Join the Good Men. We are those whose beauty is not marred By scars.

That is you. That is me.

You have scars?

Join the Good Men.

We are those whose beauty is not marred

By scars.

◊♦◊

Good Men embrace the light that you can’t always see, even when there is dark inside.

We have eyes that see,

And we want to be seen.

Good Men are vulnerable,

Our pain is there, but we are more

Than our pain.

Good Men embrace the light that

You can’t always see, even when

There is dark inside.

◊♦◊

We believe in what once seemed impossible.

We believe in what once seemed impossible,

We believe that this moment is not all that there is:

For the world, and for the world in you.

We embrace the shock of change that we did not ask for,

And we do what Good Men do:

We walk our way to freedom.

◊♦◊

Good men believe in love even when all that is offered is a handshake or a ride in the car. We accept the love that comes our way after a fall.

Good men believe in love even when all that is offered is a handshake or a ride in the car.

Sometimes the greatest church is the church of the four wheels.

We accept the love that comes our way after a fall.

And we get up

One.

More.

Time.

We are the Good Men who speak

The unsaid

To people we love.

And our eyes say it all.

Keep it Real
