Other Side of Never

(Kate Power & Steve Einhorn)
written by Kate Power
Oh, Pa's in the kitchen
He's taken all that he can take
Oh, Ma's been pitchin'
Everything gone wrong
Every mistake

And I'm trying to recall
Why I even try at all
I'd much rather roll than fall
It wouldn't hurt at all

Oh woah, Summertime's unhitchin'
Time to roll a little with the dice
My, my head is itchin'
Everything I do's got me thinkin' twice

'Cause I'm not over you
Oh, sweet dreams on a broken fuse
Still leaves me so confused
Then I let it go

And not a second too soon
Not a minute too late
Not a moment to lose
Or to hesitate
This is forever
The other side of never,
Now.

Oh woah, no, it's not what you're thinkin'
It's not your fault, it never was, y'know
No courage in drinkin', keep it eye-to-eye
Oh let your green lights go

'Cause you will do what you can
Stew in as much as you understand
Just like a tender bird in my hand
In time to let it go


And it makes you want to cry,
It makes you want a shoulder
So full of goodbye
You never get over
And I couldn't tell you why
And I couldn't do it over
Now.

Time, time keeps tickin'
Taking it's toll on a turning wind
Blind, you'll find me driftin'
Knocking at your door
Oh, won't you let me in

'Cause I'm long, long overdue
For these eyes to linger over you
And if I could I would undo
The crumble in the wall.

And not a second too soon
Not a minute too late
Not a moment to lose
Or to hesitate
This is forever
The other side of never,
Now.

And it makes you want to cry,
It makes you want a shoulder
So full of goodbye
You never get over
And I couldn't tell you why
And I couldn't do it over
Now.
