ON THE OTHER SIDE

So the evening plays a parting shot
A slap that put me to my feet
Left an aftertaste of kerosene
But it’s all the same to me



Only I was on the other side
Only I was on the other side 
Only I was on the other side
With a bottle and grin



Did you notice me surrender
Spitting blood out through my teeth
Singing songs of worldly beauty
Seemed familiar to me



Only I was on the other side
Only I was on the other side 
Only I was on the other side
With a woman and a key



So I played the final number
Was a sentimental piece
But I lost it in the coda
It’s always happening to me



Only I was on the other side
Only I was on the other side 
Only I was on the other side
With a junkie and a freak



Only I was on the other side
Only I was on the other side 
Only I was on the other side
With a million and a piece

Only I was on the other side
Only I was on the other side 
Only I was on the other side
With a bottle and grin
