​Lover's Side of Town

This song is by Joe Purdy and appears on the album Joe Purdy (2001).

Once upon a broken heart
There's a time for love and a time lovers part
It doesn't always work out the way that we planned
Did you really want to know the way that all the movies end?
No.

Mr. Moonlight won't you take the rain away?

And leave me with the hope of a better day
No sunshine don't you let me frown
I've heard the grass is always greener on the lover's side of town

Midnight picture show and love talk radio
Just doesn't quite make up for the ladies that I used to know
Well some they wished me well and some became my enemies
Some I told to go to hell and some still haunt me in my dreams

Mr. Moonlight won't you take the rain away
And leave me with the hope of a better day
No sunshine don't you let me frown
I've heard the grass is always greener on the lover's side of town
On the lover's side of town

I am riding on the midnight train
Not sure exactly why I came
I'm fine with just me and my guitar
Sometimes I am wishing for a little more
Just a little more

So little girl won't you sit by me over here
So I can whisper sweet nothings in your ear
And I just, just want to listen to what you have to say
We can tell all the world and that they can just fade away
They can fade away

Mr. Moonlight won't you take the rain away
And leave me with the hope of a better day
No sunshine don't you let me frown
I've heard the grass is always greener on the lover's side
I've heard the grass is always greener on the lover's side
I've heard the grass is always greener on the lover's side
I've heard the grass is always greener on the lover's side of town
On the lover's side of town.
On the lover's side of town.
On the lover's side of town.
