"There's myth and mystery, and they are two completely different things. Although it's part of being a big group, I don't particularly like myth, but to me mystery is everything." — Edge

I wanna be around to pick up the pieces
When somebody breaks your heart
Some somebody twice as smart as I

A somebody who will swear to be true
Like you used to do with me
Who'll leave you to learn
That misery loves company
Wait and see

I mean, I wanna be around to see how he does it
When he breaks your heart to bits
Let's see if the puzzle fits so fine

And that's when I'll discover that revenge is sweet
As I sit there applauding from a front-row seat
When somebody breaks your heart
Like you broke mine

And that's when we'll discover that revenge is sweet
As we sit there applauding from a front-row seat
When somebody breaks your heart
Like you broke mine
When somebody breaks your heart
Like you broke mine

(This song, performed by Bono and Tony Bennett, can be found on the Bennett album Duets - An American Classic)
