"The other side of the world" as written by and Stuart Ashton Staples....
the other side of the world
is an island, that she part from one
and i know this place
from there, there is no escape

i 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

i know she held me
like i could leave at any time
and i could breathe into the wild
and tell myself i'm free

then it turned down down my feet
and the buildings and trees live with the wind
left me standing in a courtesy to scream
when i was stranger to everyone
and everyone was a stranger to me

if i could touch you down
and tell you all the things i never said
of how you hid those tears away from me
like i couldn't hear

for i loved you through this wilderness
i loved you through the shit
i loved you through the best times
-----
and from the other side of the world

then it turned down down my feet
and the buildings and trees live with the wind
left me standing now i'm sadness of life
i'm screaming down the wire to find you

the other side of the world
is an island, that she part from one
and i know this place
i know this place
