ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN Janis Ian I WOUND UP TALKING WITH YOUR WIFE SHE SAYS YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER LIFE THOUGHT YOU'D FINALLY SETTLED DOWN BUT YOU KEEP ON GOING 'ROUND TO THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN SHE SAYS YOU PROMISE NOT TO STRAY THEN YOU MAKE YOUR GETAWAY AND SHE PRAYS FOR IT TO PASS, AND YOU SAY THAT IT WON'T LAST BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING NOWHERE FAST ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, WHERE NEW LOVERS MEET AT THE OLD LOST AND FOUND ON THE EDGE OF THE STREET AND THE NOON SHADOWS HIDE FROM THE FIRES OUTSIDE ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, WHERE SOME WOMAN WAITS TO WORSHIP YOUR CROWN, TO BURN AT YOUR STAKE I LAY MYSELF DOWN ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN SHE SAYS YOU FILL HER WITH DESIRE BUT WHEN YOU WANT HER, YOU'RE A LIAR SHE CAN TASTE IT ON YOUR BREATH CUTTING THROUGH THE CIGARETTE SHE CAN SMELL IT ON YOUR SWEAT YOU'VE BEEN TAKING OFF YOUR RING WOMEN SEE THESE LITTLE THINGS YOU MIGHT THINK IT DOESN'T SHOW BUT IT SHOWS HOW FAR YOU'LL GO TO FEED THE FIRE DOWN BELOW ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, WHERE NEW LOVERS MEET AT THE OLD LOST AND FOUND ON THE EDGE OF THE STREET AND THE NOON SHADOWS HIDE FROM THE FIRE OUTSIDE ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, WHERE SOME WOMAN WAITS TO WORSHIP YOUR CROWN, TO BURN AT YOUR STAKE I LAY MYSELF DOWN ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN I SAID --I KNOW THAT WOMAN WELL AND I WILL SEE HER SOUL IN HELL BEFORE I LET HER CARRY ON 'TIL ALL YOUR HOPE IS GONE MAN, YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN HER SMILE LIKE SHE'D KNOWN IT ALL THE WHILE AND SHE SAID - THANK YOU FROM ME AND CHILD THANK YOU FROM ME AND MY CHILD ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, WHERE NEW LOVERS MEET AT THE OLD LOST AND FOUND ON THE EDGE OF THE STREET AND THE NOON SHADOWS HIDE FROM THE FIRE OUTSIDE ON THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, WHERE SOME WOMAN WAITS TO WORSHIP YOUR CROWN, TO BURN AT YOUR STAKE
