The Other Side (Frischmann/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the Evening Session version. No other versions.


it's been really hard i know
it's been really hard under fire
so take a look at what this world's become
you know i've really got to go right now, oh 

you've been polishing that gun too long
it's seen no action since the war begun
so take a look before you join the other side
you know i've really got to go right now 

so strung out 

you see that i don't want to play this game
i need your shoulder to cry on
it's something i can rely on
don't want to live this way
that's why i'm leaving this for you
to russia with love

oh, see you
it's me 

we've been pushing it, it's like cold war
the walking wounded from the night before
so take a look before you join the other side
you know i've really got to go right now 

i'll see you round 

you see that i don't want to play this game
i need your shoulder to cry on
it's something i can rely on
don't want to live this way
that's why i'm leaving this for you
to russia with love

you see i'm talking about you
don't want to fight without you
don't want to fight about it
i'm just your lover!
