"That song 'MoFo' is hardcore. If I could put my whole life into one song, it'd be something close to that. It's a funny thing to be able to say - that a song sums you up - cause maybe that means you're not that interesting after all."
- Bono in 1997
The song 'I Will Follow' is about Bono's undying love and devotion to his mother, who died while Bono was still a very young boy. This song pays homage to the fact that death cannot sever love.
