"You are not just The Boss, you’re the chairman and the head of the union and the car park attendant.. you’re the comrade, the bandmate, the lover, the farmer, the husband, the father. I don’t know if this is about a father saying goodbye to his daughter as she sets off to find her own life… I don’t need to know. It’s about everybody who has to let go of something perfect. There Goes My Miracle is the greatest singing and writing of your life, I guess it took your whole life. And yes, some of us feel like we’ve lived it with you."
- Bono on Bruce Springsteen's There Goes My Miracle, 2020
