On the Wrong Side of the Tracks

Anyas Awakening - Stuck In the Cobwebs of My Mind
On the Wrong Side of the Tracks
by Michael Doyle

Just south
Of Desolation Boulevard
On the wrong side
Of those rusted tracks
Is a place we know

Where the kids all go
And the traffic's slow
Where hearts beat forever
Than the speed of light

On the wrong side
Of the tracks
They don't give a damn
About what passes for facts

Nothing is more important
Than the beating heart
That tells its own truth
As all we need to know

The tears are gonna flow
Somewhere in the barrios of Madrid
As life comes hard and fast
A moment's kiss is stolen

For something that passes as love
Because that fleeting feeling
Is all we'll ever have
To hold onto and cherish

On the wrong side of the tracks
That mistakes made slide down fast
We scream in desperation
Clinging to dreams we want to believe in

On the wrong side of the tracks
We might bleed out before the night is over
But we will never let go
As long as we're dreaming
