WATCH: Bono Composes a Brand-New Track Dedicated to All Health Care Professionals

 

In a video released on US’s Official Instagram Account, Front-man Bono yesterday posted a brand-new track, which he composed an hour before posting, dedicated to “the Italians who inspired it… for the Irish…for ANYONE who is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it’s you we’re singing to.”

 

Titled ‘Let your Love be Known’ this song, could not have come at a more pertinent time, as Maltese people all over the Island yesterday took to their balconies to applaud the Health Care Professionals currently on the front line of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The chorus in fact includes lyrics about singing across rooftops, sung in a falsetto that might not quite be in Bono’s range anymore. It’s a cute gesture nonetheless.

Lyrics to Let Your Love Be Known

Yes there was silence
yes there was no people here
yes I walked through the streets of Dublin and no-one was near
Yes I don’t know you
No I didn’t think I didn’t care
You live so very far away from just across the square

And I can’t reach but I can rain
You can’t touch but you can sing
Across rooftops
Sing down the phone
Sing and promise me you won’t stop
Sing your love, be known, let your love be known.

Yes there is isolation
You and me we’re still here
Yes when we open our eyes we will stare down the fear
And maybe I’ve said the wrong thing
Yes I made you smile
I guess the longest distance is always the last mile.

And I can’t reach but I can rain
You can’t touch but you can sing
Across rooftops
Sing to me down the phone
Sing and promise me you won’t stop
Sing and you’re never alone.

Sing as an act of resistance
Sing though your heart is overthrown
When you sing there is no distance
So let your love be known, oh let your love be known
Though your heart is overthrown.
Let your love be known.
