"Always on Your Side" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
My yesterdays are all boxed up and neatly put away
But every now and then you come to mind
Cause you were always waiting to be picked to play the game
But when your name was called, you found a place to hide
When you knew that I was always on your side

Well everything was easy then, so sweet and innocent
my demons and my angels reappeared
Leavin' only traces of the man you thought I'd be
Too afraid to hear the words i always fear
leaving you with only questions all these years

Is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are you left to wander, all alone, eternally
This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well they say that love is in the air, but never is it clear,
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away
And I'm left to carry on and wonder why
Even through it all, I'm always on your side

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are you left to wander, all alone, eternally
But this isn't how it's really meant to be
Oh it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well if they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
How to pull it close and make it stay
If butterflies are free to fly, why do they fly away
Leavin' me to carry on and wonder why
Was it you that kept me wondering through this life
When you know that I was always on your side

    General CommentWritten by Sheryl Crow and released on her Wildflowers album, Sting told her that he liked the song so much, he wanted to record it as a duet with her, possibly because he wanted her to know that she had his support when she broke up with Lance Armstrong and battled breast Cancer.

    General CommentOn the other hand, I am always on your side.
    Funny, there have been many times when I have assuredly and understandably had my doubts--either that or you have a rather warped sense of fun. I'm never really sure ....
    Well if they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
    How to pull it close and make it stay
    And making me laugh so I swallow a mouthful of Listerine is a possible way?
    You mean it's not?
