"By My Side" as written by Robin Harry Hawkins, James Martyn Frost, Iwan Huw Griffiths and Alexander Gregor Pennie....
The things that run in my blood
I just gave up so fast
I've got nothing left to give

Secrets don't keep themselves
I'm sick of hiding the answer
From the question here

What did I find in my head had no conviction
And the fire that had gone out
That lit up when the radio signal went out

Is this the end of the world?
I can't tell, it's been like this so long
Is this still you by my side?
I can't decide if you were here at all

Is this the end of the world?
Is this the end of the world?

Let's look back
I can't remember when the last time
Anything I said meant anything

But things change, things change
Things change just as I slipped
Into the gaps between reception bars
And I found myself wanting

Is this the end of the world?
I can't tell, it's been like this so long
Is this still you by my side?
I can't decide if you were here at all

Is this the end of the world?
Is this the end of the world?

Don't look back and set traps
For myself to keep me on track
Don't backtrack, realize that
The best defense is attack

Is this the end of the world?
I can't tell, it's been like this so long
Is this still you by my side?
I can't decide if you were here at all

Is this the end of the world?
Is this the end of the world?

    General Commentmy guess this one is about career of a musician (a band), like moving on and on and thinking that it'd be good to keep your listeners/fans interested through the times
