Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love

Well it's too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other

  (Main riff)
Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head?

  (Chorus riff)
Did I ask too much, more than a lot
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got
We're one, but we're not the same
We hurt each other then we do it again

You say
 C                Am
Love is a temple, Love a higher law
 C                Am
Love is a temple, Love the higher law
     C                    G
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
		      Fmaj7
And I can't be holding on to what you got
		     C
When all you got is hurt

# CHORD FORMATIONS:
#  Dadd2  x x x 2 3 x
#  G6+    x x 5 4 3 x




Notes for ONE:

I developed this version of playing the song, having watched the 
Anton Corbijn video a thousand times on slow-mo, and from the U2
Live in Sydney.  This requires a strong pinky finger for the 
hammer-ons and pull-offs.  I can't remember the symbols you used,
so here are mine:

> -hammer on< -pull off
\ -slide

First, form an open A minor chord.
 
 Am                           D
E---------0--------0--------|------------------------------------------B-----1---1--3<1>3<1----3<1-|------------------------------------------G-0>2--------2--------------|-----7-5>7<5-7---5>7<5--------------------D---------------------------|-----7-5>7<5-7---5>7<5--------------------A-----0---------------------|-3\5--------------------------------------E---------------------------|------------------------------------------
...Play a normal open F chord, omitting the first-fretted note on the 
high E.  For the G, simply slide your F chord up two frets to a G 
position.  For the Am,F, and G chords, all the hammer-ons and pull-offs 
should be done with your pinky. For the D, use your fourth finger.
and bar the two hammered and pulled notes.

 F                      G
E----0-------0--------|--------------------------------------
B----1-3<1>3<1---3<1--|--------------3-----------------------
G------2--------------|------5-4>5<4>5-----------------------
D-3-------------------|-3\5--5-5-----------------------------
A---------------------|--------------------------------------
E---------------------|--------------------------------------

The Hammer-ons and pull-offs are pretty much the same for the chorus...
(the C, Am, F part).  I would draw it out, but the Am and F have 
essentially already been shown.  


Write me any problems you have with this version.  It's hard trying
to illustrate on the computer.
