David Crosby – On The Other Side Of Town lyrics

Written by Graham Nash

I wouldn't hurt you for the world
Even though yesterday I know I let you down
You were naked on the table
In the arms of another woman
On the other side of town

I left you laughing with a stranger
But I confess that I knew
She was gonna bring you pain
When she offered you a needle
It was long and it was shining
And I saw it bring you down

Phosphorescent lights harshly sounding
The buzzing in my ears getting louder
Flies bash their brains against the window pane
Let's get out of here

I wouldn't hurt you for the world
And the worst of it is
I've got to take you back again
And I don't know how I'll make it
Maybe someone else should hold you
On the other side of town

Trees are dying in the middle of the courtyard
The daughter in the doorway wanted silver
The other woman is already leaving
Let's get out of here

I wouldn't hurt you for the world
And the worst of it is
I've got to take you back again for much more pain
And I don't know I'll make it
Maybe someone else should hold you, next time
