Glass Animals - The Other Side Of Paradise Lyrics

Intro
Oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Verse 1
When I was young and stupid (Oh)
My love left to be a rock and roll star (Oh)
He told me, "Please, don't worry" (Oh)
Wise little smile that spoke so safely (Oh
)
He booked a one-way ticket (Oh)
Out west, that's where they make it (Oh)
Six kids stuck in a bedsit (Oh)
To sunswept poolside riches
(Oh)
(Oh, oh)
He met a girl who wore Versace (Oh)
Pink feather coats and jumbo jewelry​
(Oh)
Gonna be a hoop phenomenon (Oh)
He's gonna be Hakeem Olajuwon
(Oh)
He's got a gold Camaro (Oh)
He said over the payphone (Oh)
I try to keep my cool but (Oh)
My life turns in slow motion (Oh)

Chorus
Bye-bye, baby blue
I wish (Oh) you could see the wicked truth
Caught up (Oh) in a rush, it's killing you
Screaming (Oh) at the sun you blow into
Curled up (Oh) in a grip when we were us
Fingers (Oh) in a fist like you might run
I settle (Oh) for a ghost I never knew
Super (Oh) paradise I held on to
But I settle for a ghost

Verse 2
Where I was from in NOLA
No one (Oh) left to be a rock and roll star (Oh)
He'd stay and treat his lady (Oh)
Give everything to his new baby
(Oh)
I miss him, don't you blame me? (Oh)
That boy went stone cold crazy (Oh)
Caught up in camera lust (Oh)
He's chasing that pappy pipe dream
(Oh)
(Oh)
(Oh)
(Oh)

Bridge
I know you don't but I
I know you don't but I still try
My thunder shook him down
My thunder came and shook him down
That girl is gone but I-
That girl is gone but I still try

I think it's over now
The bullet hit but maybe (Oh) not

I feel so fucking numb
It hits my head and I feel (Oh) numb

My body's looking wrong
My body's looking wrong (Oh)
My body's looking wrong (Oh)

Chorus
Bye-bye, baby blue
I wish (Oh) you could see the wicked truth
Caught up (Oh) in a rush, it's killing you
Screaming (Oh) at the sun you blow into
Curled up in a grip when we were us
Fingers (Oh) in a fist like you might run
I settle (Oh) for a ghost I never knew
Super (Oh) paradise I held on to
But I settle (Oh) for a ghost

Outro
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
