LINER NOTES
Time Enough For Tears: Performed by Andrea Corr.  Arranged and Produced by Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer.  Written by Bono, Friday, Seezer.
OTHER NOTES
In late 2002 Bono, Gavin Friday and Andrea Corr were all present at a rough screening of Jim Sheridan's new film, In America.  He was looking for a new song to add over the credits, and work began immediately.  Involved in the early stages of the ideas for the song, Andrea Corr had to leave for a trip to LA, leaving Gavin, Bono and Maurice Seezer to finish the writing of the song.  They would phone her as bits were written.

When it came time to record, Andrea Corr laid down the vocal recording in one take.  The song was recorded, but now the movie would sit for another year before gaining release.  The movie was released at the end of 2003, and the soundtrack was released in November of that year.

There are some male vocals in the mix as well.  Those are Gavin Friday in the background, not Bono as some have suggested.  The song was nominated for a Golden Globe at the 2004 ceremony.
