Subject: Lyr Add: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SUN
Lyrics and credits copied from Janis Ian's web site – however, I have added some words [in brackets] that can be heard in the recording but were omitted from the transcription. I have also tweaked the formatting a bit.
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SUN
Janis Ian/Albert Hammond
[As sung by Janis Ian on "The Bottom Line Encore Collection" (1999)
"Recorded live at The Bottom Line, 1980"]
1. [I'm] leaving on a boat for beyond the other side of the ocean.
[I'll] bet you in the morning you won't even know I'm gone;
['Cause I'm] tired of living here in the middle of a mixed emotion.
[I] might as well be living on the other side of the sun.
CHORUS: [I'm] leaving with the feeling
I don't know how I'm dealing
With loving you, though once I knew
The special way, and what to do
To make you stay forever and ever.
Even as I'm leaving,
I'll never stop believing
You are the one who can make me laugh
And can bring me back
From beyond the other side of the sun.
2. Rolling down the river, I hope I can deliver the morning.
[I'm] wishing on a star for the sun to come out and play.
[Ain't it] funny, when it's over you really don't remember the warning.
[You] might as well be living out beyond the Milky Way. CHORUS TWICE
