The Edge
There are dreams for sale: So cruel. 
I wonder in the moment of surrender,
Too late to worry, too blue to cry,
Dark as a dungeon - numb.

The miracle drug, a party girl -
Prima dona (can't you see I'm trying).
The wanderer, burning bridges,
Dreams of the everyday housewife.

Hey, little one (guess I'm dumb),
Raised by wolves in Van Diemen's land,
A window in the skies, same old places -
Miss Sarajevo walkin' in the sun.

The Edge, Irish guitarist and composer for the band U2, was born today in 1961.

Glen Campbell, American singer, guitarist and songwriter, died on this day in 2017.
