lyrics

The Other Side Of Town

Sam and Jane where driving
Trying to make a break
At the river
Sam’s hands began to shake
Jane lit two cigarettes
She put one in his mouth
He said thanks sweetheart it’s not too far
This road will take us south

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Jane’s husband had been a handful
More murder than Sam could take
Jane had collected the insurance
Now they could escape
Outside the wind blew bitter
They drove past a rubbish tip
Sam looked straight ahead
Jane just bit her lip

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Idling outside of the motel
Keys hanging in the ignition
Sam said babe you go in first
So as not to arouse suspicion
Book yourself into a single room
In an hour I’ll do the same
Tomorrow at six met me back out here
We’ll catch that boat for Spain

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Next morning while Sam was waiting
In the twilight nervously
He dreamed about the continent
How their life was going to be
Glancing at his wrist watch
His throat went dry
He realised Jane was late
When he tried her room there was no reply

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Running back to the car
He cursed himself for being such a heel
Jane had all the cash
He hung his head behind the wheel
When the cops reeled him in
They said they’d had a call
That’s when he knew he was the guy
The guy to take the fall

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2
