"I know U2 go into every album like it's their last one but even more this time I wanted the people around me that I loved to know exactly how I felt. So a lot of the songs are kind of letters, letters to Ali, letters to my sons and daughters, actually our sons and daughters."
- Bono on Songs of Experience

The song 'Numb' is about how The Edge felt when he split up with his wife. He felt like he couldn't do anything, he was useless. He felt numb.
