I love this cover of this song....the original U2 album came out when I was 18, enduring my first heartbreak. I have listened to this song again at different times, and as I got older it has said different things to me.  Johnny Cash sings it at the end of his life, and it resonates with all the love, experience, loss and hope life can give.

Love is a difficult thing, a fickle thing, and I think I still don't know what it is.  I think it has nothing to do with romanticism, but the lives we build with others, friendships, brothers, sisters, lovers and what we do with those relationships. We will disappoint and fail, but we love, regardless. It has been years since I have listened to this song...but today it speaks to me, perhaps from the grave of long ago relationships that have taken a little bit of me as they disappeared into the past.
