I really like their performance of this song from the Rattle And Hum tour. It's a dark song and I think it's about a young man who is confused about what love is; he's trying to shut himself off from his feelings, trying to freeze his heart with the cold night and the stars "like nails" and the steel pistol, but he can't ignore his heart beating so hard, and it creates a terrible conflict of what to do or who to be. Maybe similar to someone who has suffered abuse where love should have been and then struggles to love himself. The description is really chilling as if the man is about to go commit murder or suicide. In the live performance, Bono actually sings "The hands that build can also pull down. EVEN the hands of love."
