There's a place I know too well
Been there and lived to tell
And I can see that you and me are
Almost halfway there
We're getting much too close
Feels like I've seen a ghost
I took a vow if I made it out
You'd never catch me there again
CHORUS:
No time to wonder why
No time for long goodbyes
Last chance for getting out is fading with the light
'Cause I don't want to be around
When the night comes down
On the lonesome side of town
You can hear each footstep fall
Run from shadows on the wall
And every day is just the same
As the one that came before
You won't find any peace
Not here, not on these streets
Misery loves company
And there's enough to go around
REPEAT CHORUS 2X
On the lonesome side of town
On the lonesome side of town
