Aside from Numb, what songs has The Edge written the lyrics for?

Or does he just contribute to what Bono initially pens?

He wrote "Seconds" if I'm not mistaken.

He came up with the idea for "Sunday Bloody Sunday" when Bono was on his honeymoon. And I think he wrote some of "Wake Up Dead Man."

I believe that several songs say "lyrics by Bono and The Edge," not just the ones that Edge sings in

WILATW is one of them, if memory serves correctly.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

As is Dirty Day.

Generally, the crappier lyrics can be traced to Edge.

Edge did the first verse of Seconds, which he sang, and the first verse of Wake Up Dead Man.

All the lyrics for "until the end of the world" are credited to Edge too.

How do you folks know which sections of songs The Edge wrote? I'd love to read those sources.

I quite like The Edge's stuff, except "Seconds". Eck!
