You've heard it said, I taught the bird to fly
One kiss from me and some can't say goodbye
The place you'll find me when the sun goes down
After hours, on the wrong side of town

How many faces will I change today
Take them to places where the shadows play
That's where you'll find me when the sun goes down
After hours, on the wrong side of town.

Lulled by the promise of a broken dream
They all come looking for the answers
The question's never if and when they fall from grace
After all, it's just a matter of time

Here comes another with a life to spare.
So young and innocent but I know that stare
Just whistle Parker's Mood and I'll be there
After hours, on the wrong side of town
After hours, on the wrong side of town
Stay away from the wrong side of town
