the other side lyrics – elastica

bbc radio 1 evening session 08/08/96
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!]
