Your Side of Town

  • Lyrics
  • This revenge stomper finds Maddie & Tae insisting on permanent separation from a former boyfriend. "I dated this guy for three weeks, and it wasn't anything serious, but we just ended on a bad note," Tae recalled to Glamour. "I never wanted to see him again, but we live in the same town."

    "One day Maddie and I were getting gas right by our apartment complex, and he pulls up on his motorcycle and I couldn't believe he was at the gas station on our side of town," she continued. "I was just super irritated and fired up about how he treated me, so all I knew what to do was go into a song-writing session, and said, 'This dude just needs to stay on his side of town!'" [Laughs]
