"It's a sort of three year cycle. We spend like a year writing the songs, then a year recording them, and then a year selling them door to door." - Bono, 2009
The song 'I Fall Down' is about a girl Bono knew named Julie. She's the daughter of a wealthy lawyer in New York, who ended up moving to ireland and becoming involved in the same bible group U2 were in. She later became involved with Pod, a roadie for U2 at the time, the 'John' in the song.
