"Either Side of the Same Town" as written by Elvis Costello and Jerry Ragovoy....
Nothing will ever be the same
All of the promises we made seem hollow
But there are still streets in this town
Marked with your shadow

So if you see me, look surprised
If you don't then pass me by
And I may even brush your sleeve
As you turn to leave

Now it's hard to act like strangers
When we used to be so strong
Everything is changing
And most of it is wrong
What do we know of anything?
Two fools of some renown
Either side of the same town

Somewhere there's a light
I can sense it
Oh, though I may fall back again
Although it's a fight
I know I must remain

Now it's hard to keep ignoring
Someone you recognize
And if I seem contented
It's only my disguise
What do we know of anything?
Two fools of some renown
Either side of the same town
