about

Never fall in love with a girl from the circus. She will break your heart flawlessly and beg you to come back for more. During the long days, you keep your head down and pretend that you’re not waiting for her to return. You fill your nights with gin and cigarettes... Her husband will eventually kill you with his knife. You know this but you won’t listen, will you?

lyrics

OTHER SIDE OF TOWN
copyright 2006 john common music

on the other side of town, wear your love like a crown.
with your heart on my vest. and you know that it's best
on the other side of town.
when your train gets in i won't ask where you've been…
on the other side of town.

with the rain coming in and my pockets jingling.
this cigarette's all gone and i'm humming our song
on the other side of town.
when your train gets in i'll be playing my violin
on the other.

oh, just like a gypsy
hanging around
a painted tear on a clown.
oh, just to be holding
that which i love
and can't let go of

disappear in the crowd... oh my love i'll find you out.
your heart calls to me like a stone dropped in the sea.
on the other side of town.
when your train gets in i'll be drowning in gin
on the other side of town.
when your train gets in i'll be drowning in gin
on the other...

oh, just like a gypsy
hanging around
a painted tear on a clown
oh, just to be holding
that which i love
and can't let go of
