On Revelation, Relationship And Christology

Reflecting on U2's music. Bono writes:

"I have spoke with the tongue of angels

I have held the hand of a devil

It was warm in the night

I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for"

I suppose this is small, but it seems that in light of biblical revelation such as Colossians 1:13-20; John 1:1-18 that the hook should be changed from an object to a person. The lyrics should be as follows:
"But I still haven't found [who] I'm looking for."
Granted, Bono probably wasn't intending the song to be thought this way -maybe. Regardless when I listen to it, I can't help but say in my head, "person -not thing."
