U2 and Martin Luther King

"Pride (In the Name of Love)" is the second song on U2's 1984 album, The Unforgettable Fire, and was released as the album's first single. Written about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is one of the band's most recognized songs. In this YouTube video, the song is accompanied by an artist sketching MLK in black ink.



The Lyrics are as follows:

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go.
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed up on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
Early morning, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky.
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
