Far Side of Town (Matt Minglewood)

I heard songs about trouble and strife
And I heard songs about pain
I heard a song about a man and his wife
She won't be back again
I heard a son about a man gone wrong
And I've sang a few about someone who lay dying
But I never thought I'd hear myself
Singing about your cheating and your lying

Now I heard it said that the world's a stage
We must play out part
Every time I turn the page
You tore into my heart
Now I feel like a playwright
Stuck in the daylight
Trying to find a way to keep from crying
Cause he never thought he'd see himself
Writing about your cheating and your lying

On the far side of town
You lay your body down
For someone you don't even want to know
Just a thrill for the night
Still can make it right
Though you try hard you never let it show
Oh but I know


What's going on
On the far side of town
What's going on
On the far side of town


from Me & The Boys, released March 12, 2014
