01. The Other Side Of Love

I know a good dance when the mood is right
You can do it by day you can do it by night
It can be so fine and you'll agree
If you just to what comes naturally nowBaby it's the other side of love
Baby it's the other side of love
Baby it's the other side of love
Baby, babyThere's plenty of ways we can do that thing
We can fool around till we get that swing
Come on do what you want honey we don't mind
If you just make sure that you stay in time nowBaby it's the other side of love
Baby it's the other side of love
Baby it's the other side of love
Baby, babyKnow a good dance when the mood is right
You can take it slow 'cause we've got all night
It can be so fine and you'll agree
If you just to what comes naturally now

02. Ode To Boy

When he moves I watch him from behind
He turns and laughter flickers in his eyes
Intent and direct when he speaks, I watch his lips
And when he drives I love to watch his hand
White and smooth almost feminine, almost American, I have to watch him.

In his face age descends on youth, exaggeration on the truth
He caught me looking then but soon his eyes forgot
And everything he seems to do reflects just another shade of blue
I saw him searching into you and ached a while

I watch his lips caress the glass,
His fingers stroke its stem and pass
To lift a cigarette at last, he dries his eyes
From a shadow by the stair
I watch as he weeps unaware
That I'm in awe of his despair

In his face age descends on youth, exaggeration on the truth
He caught me looking then but soon his eyes forgot
And everything he seems to do reflects just another shade of blue
I saw him searching into you and ached a while
