"She's a mystery to me" as written by and Paul Hewson David Evans....
Darkness falls and she will take me by the hand
Take me to some twilight land
Where all but love is grey
Where I can't find my way
Without her as my guide

Night falls I'm cast beneath her spell
Daylight comes our heaven turns to hell
Am I left to burn
And burn eternally
She's a mystery to me
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl

In the night of love words tangled in her hair
Words soon to disappear
A love so sharp it cut
like a switchblade to my heart
words tearing me apart

She tears again my bleeding heart
I want to run she's pulling me apart
Fallen angel cries
and I just melt away
She's a mystery to me
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl

Haunted by her side is the darkness in her eyes
That so enslaves me
But if my love is blind
then I don't want to see
She's a mystery to me

Night falls I'm cast beneath her spell
Daylight comes our heaven turns to hell
Am I left to burn
And burn eternally
She's a mystery to me
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl

She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl

She's a mystery girl
She's a mystery girl
