David Byrne – The Other Side Of This Life lyrics

I don't have any more problems
All of my worries are gone
Beautiful angels appear at my side
And corporate sponsors will act as my guide
Agents & analysts take me inside
The other side of this life

Beautiful people are walking
And beautiful people are we
Bright as the sunlight at noon ev'ry day
The people in nightclubs they all turn away
But when it's over we're returning to
The other side of this life

I made a church of your hair-do
And I made a shrine of your legs
I promised to love and to worship each day
I know that heaven is not far away
Management told me they're sure I will play
The other side of this life

Lookin' in the mirror
Peekin' 'round the corner
Where the grass is always greener
Peekin' through the curtain
I gotta have a peek in
It's genuine upholstered leather

Doctor I'm back for a visit
The symptoms are worse than before
Although it's spelled wrong, my name's up in lights
I feel so good, but you say it's all right
I'll pay the price if you help me to find
The other side of this life
The other side of this life
