for ANYONE who this St. Patrick’s day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it's you we’re singing to. Bono

The lyrics to the song, in part:

Yes, I don’t know you, no, I didn’t think I didn’t care/
You live so very far away, just across the square/
You can’t touch, but you can sing across rooftops/
Sing on the phone, sing and promise me you won’t stop/
Sing your love be known.
