I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

you know, I was going to put the lyrics to Where the Streets Have No Name up here, because when I heard it driving down the freeway this afternoon, it was a bit overwhelming, a bit like the feeling that you're in the presence of something divine. I've heard the song probably 2000+ times, and it still makes me feel that way. And I used to think it was Bono, or the lyrics he sings, but really, I think it's the Edge's guitar.
The "dun-dun-dun-dun-dun, dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun" coda to the song that begins around the 5 minute 38 second mark.

I struggle with words, trying to make them do what I want.
I've read some fantastic words from others.
But for all that, some fucking Irish dude who shares his name with a fucking shaving gel can express the ineffable by going "plink, plink, plink."

Lucky fucking bastard.

"yo te quiero infinito
yo te quiero, o mi corazon"
