Tindersticks Lyrics

"The Other Side Of The World" lyrics


On the other side of the world is an island
The shape of a woman
And I know this place
From there, there is no escape

Y'know she held me
Not too tight for she would break me
Not too loose for I would slip away
To the other side of the world
Y'know she held me
Like I could leave at any time
And I could breathe into the wire
And tell myself I'm free

When it turned under my feet
And buildings and the trees left with the wind
Left me standing
In a dirty city street, where I'm a stranger to everyone
And everyone is a stranger to me

If I could talk to you darlin'
I'd tell you all the things I could never say
Like I couldn't hear
For I love you through this wilderness
I'll love you through the shit
I loved you through the best times that there ever was
From the other side of the world.

When it turned under my feet
And buildings and the trees left with the wind
Left me standing
Now I'm shouting at satellites
Screaming down the wires
To find you

On the other side of the world is an island
The shape of a woman
And I know this place
I know this place.
