The Rep partially answered your question back in September '07.
"And back when the Fort Worth Saturday lyric fragments were posted, I
noticed some similarities -- specifically, 'I don't want to win or
lose; I only want to live with you' seemed very familiar (this motif
popped up in the Brooklyn Wednesday lyrics as well). I asked if he
had played the same song both places, and he replied: 'Yes, same song
as Boston. Also performed at Indianapolis. Only repeat so far.'"
Sounds like this was a different song, but not an album track...
