The Other Side
written by John Hiatt

I was looking for an easy way out
from this darkness inside of me
For somebody who knew what it was about
someone who could clearly see
My grandfather n' my grandmother
Someone who's been here before
Walked on by through the heart of darkness
Come and hear me open up this door

Wanna take that ride to the other side
I wanna take that ride to the other side
Give your advice from the other side
I wanna take that ride to the other side

I've been roaming the allies and backstreets
looking for my family
But to my hunger and shame and degradation
the past went away from me
Like my father before me had written
the little that he left behind
Men lie, men may die
Goodbye, John, that love is blind
