"Lover's Side of town" as written by and Joe Purdy....
Once upon a broken heart
There's a time for love
And a time the lover's part
And it doesn't always work out.
The way that we planned
Did you really wanna know the way,
That all the movies end?
No

Mr. Moonlight won't you take the rain away?
And leave me with the hope of a better day
No, sunshine don't you let me frown
I've heard the grass is always greener
On the lover's side of town

Midnight picture show, and
Love talk radio, just
Doesn't quite make up for
The ladies that I used to know
And, well some they wish me well
And some became my enemies
And some I told to go to hell
And some still haunt me in my dreams
Some still haunt me in my dreams

Mr. Moonlight won't you take the rain away?
And leave me with the hope of a better day
No, sunshine don't you let me frown
I've heard the grass is always greener
On the lovers side of town
On the lovers side of town
Mm

I am riding on the midnight train
Not sure exactly why I came
I am fine with just me and my guitar
But sometimes I am wishing for a little more
Just a little more

So little girl won't you sit by me?
Over here
So I can whisper sweet nothings in your ear
And I just
Just wanna listen to what you have to say
And we can tell the world that they can just fade away
They can fade away

Mr. Moonlight won't you take the rain away?
And leave me with the hope of a better day
Oh, sunshine don't you let me frown
Cause I've heard the grass is always greener
On the lovers side of
I've heard the grass is always greener
On the lovers side
I've heard the grass is always greener
On the lovers side of town
On the lovers side of town
Ooh, on the lovers side of town
On the lovers side of town

    General Comment"And, Well some they wish me well.
    And some became my enemies.
    And some i told to go to hell.
    And some still haunt me in my dreams."

    Isn't that just so true about old loves or flames....
    Some end well with a friendship, while others end awful from either party....Puts in such a sweet melody and great words to justify the feeling

    General Commenti've experienced a "midnight picture show" and at times stumbled across the "love talk radio" but nothing compares to how he breaks down the fact that every old relationship evolves into something after the fact.
    It's an awfully sad reality in my opinion, but there is always the potential for it to turn out better than it did before.
