Another Unlikely Lyric

I’ve been listening to U2’s “I Will Follow” for over 25 years (not continuously). But only recently did I pay attention to this lyric:

Your eyes make a circle

Two eyes, of course, make a line.

So I am forced to conclude that the person whom Bono is addressing has more than two eyes. Actually, since three eyes make a triangle and four eyes, however you position them, don’t really look circular, I think he must be singing to somebody with, at a bare minimum, five eyes.

One Comment Thus Far on Another Unlikely Lyric

  1. Scott Underwood Says:

    If he went the long way around the head, your eyes would describe most of a circle, so maybe Bono was considering non-Euclidean geometry when he wrote that.
