Religious Music

Rock Star Bono has been making music history for decades. Throughout his long career there is one song U2 plays at every live performance: “I Will Follow.” Bono wrote the song following his mother’s death when he was just fourteen years old. It tells a personal story from his late mother’s perspective. Bono’s faith guides him when he writes and performs music. “I Will Follow” is a shining example of belief in an afterlife and the power of heavenly love. Rock music becomes religious music for the generations, when it’s inspired by creative and faith-filled musical expression.

I Will Follow Lyrics – U2 Bono

I was on the outside when you said
You needed me
I was looking at myself
I was blind, I could not see.

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by the hand
If he stops to think, he starts to cry
Oh why?

If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
I will follow.

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
I was lost, I am found.

If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
I will follow.

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there
Your eyes, your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes.

If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
I will follow.
I will follow.

Composer: Bono
