"Treasure (Whatever Happened To Pete The Chop)"

"Stylistically quite different to anything else on 'Boy,' much to the annoyance of our label, it was passed over when e chose the songs to record for the album. Thereafter, at regular intervals, we would here the same question from Island - 'Whatever happened to Pete the Chop?' Why we added 'Treasure' to the title I have no idea, perhaps it was to protect 'Pete the Chop' from the resulting and potentially personally catastrophic media attention." - The Edge, War 2008

I like to smile but I like to mostly stay with you
I like good times but I can't feel this without you
By my song the heart is in the place
I sing this song probably so
If I could sigh I'd tell the world I'd felt with you
I like the time
I like the feeling when I feel you in my arms
I'll take you in my hand, I'll let you go
Dump her beside me
Dump her beside me

Sing it, sing my, sing my song
We sing the same old song loud
Smile though your heart breaks in two
Touch me, when will I be with you

I like good times but I can feel it's going wrong
You sing the same old song
Now I think it's time to get it right

Sing it out, sing out
Sing this same old song

If I could swim, I'd swim in circles
If I could drown, I'd, I'd drown with you
If I had enough of my life
I can't tell if I had enough of you
I run away, I watch you stand
My life should be alright
I like to watch, oh my, tonight
Somebody save
