"It's my favorite U2 song, I have to say. Normally, when I hear a U2 song on the radio I cringe. Either I sound like a girl, or the lyric isn't finished. But there are some songs that I really, really do enjoy. Miss Sarajevo is one of them."
- Bono on the release of U23D, 2008
The song 'Gone' is about Bono and his family, how he feels when on the road while touring and has to leave them behind and it also represents his past life.
