"Saturday Night" as written by Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul David Hewson and Larry Mullen....
Stood on his shadow
They always do
All he wanted to spoil the view
Of people and places
Second-hand faces
He saw but never knew

Look like a painting
A picture of you
Depending on your point of view
She laughed with the others
They call out her name
She smiled, she said
Goodbye

On a Saturday night
On a Saturday night
On a Saturday night
On a Saturday night
Saturday night
Saturday night

They met a streetlight
Though she never knew
All he wanted was to spoil the view
And just for a second
It felt like a year
He waited for her second tear

On a Saturday night
On a Saturday night
On a Saturday night
On a Saturday night
Saturday night
Saturday night

Can you soar any higher
If you can't let go
To save her in the fire
She won't say no

Downtown

    General Commentrare song, which appeared on the boy remastered (2008), it certainly sounds like an early version of "fire"!
