"Saturday Night"

"'Saturday Night' (was) a very new song that we were still working on. It was later reworked and became the song 'Fire.' LIstening back now I can't help feeling that we lost some of the power and directness of the original. It was a mix of the strange three-part guitar solo from 'Saturday Night' that we used as a teaser at the very end of the 'Boy' album, oddly quiet in this rough mix." - The Edge, Boy 2008

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 at 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
