"On the Other Side" as written by and Landon Pigg....
I can't move, I'm afraid to lose
I'm breathing but I'm dead
Yeah there's a difference
Between living and living in your head
Don't let life pass you by

If you're feeling all alone, then
Just look in the mirror at yourself
And you'll remember every reason
Why you're sharing your life with no one else

There, there
I don't want to make you cry
There, there
But you'll feel better on the other side
On the other side

You'll never know what's on the inside
If you never open up the box
And why do you expect the door
To open up if you won't even knock

If you're feeling all alone, then
Just look in the mirror at yourself
And you'll remember all the reasons
Why you're sharing your life with no one else

There, there
I don't want to make you cry
There, there
But you'll feel better on the other side
On the other side

There, there
I don't want to make you cry
There, there
There, there

You got a long ways to go
But on the other side
You're gonna find what you're looking for
On the other side
You don't have to hide the tears in your eyes
On the other side
They're gonna turn into something more
On the other side

You're gonna toss and turn
But on the other side
You're gonna find what you're looking for
On the other side
You don't have to hide the tears in your eyes
Cause on the other side
They're gonna turn into something more
On the other side

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this! It's a great song! I think that ths song is basically saying that if u face your fears, whatever they may be, you'll feel better! It's also saying "how do u expect anything to happen if u won't even try." It's saying that it won't be easy but u will feel better once u do it!

    General CommentI love the first part of this song, the whole "I'm breathing but I'm dead". He's afraid of taking risks, but knows that to LIVE LIFE you have to take them sometimes.

    Also, I'm not sure if he's trying to say that the girl is ... conceited ? Maybe she's one of the girls that lets herself go all day long, but at the end of the day, realizes that she doesn't have any friends. :you're sharing your life with no one else" because she doesn't have anyone to share it with.
    Point is, he tries to tell her that she should get over what she's going through now to experience happiness on the other side ...

    with him.

    General CommentThis song really hits a personal note with me. It's like sometimes you're so... Uncomfortable putting yourself out there that you just start living a very isolated life, family/close friends, etc. It's sort of sad, because I'm in high school, and I feel like I could be missing things, but I don't think I really need the things I'm missing. Blah.

    General Commenti think that the "baby, i don't want to make you cry.
    baby, would you feel better on the other side, on the other side?" is "there, there, i don't want to make you cry.
    there, there, would you feel better on the other side, on the other side?"

    but i don't have the booklet or anything so i could be wrong

    General CommentI had a day of self-reflection today & this song really resonates with me. Especially this part - "I'm breathing but I'm dead" and "Yeah there's a difference
    Between living and living in your head" - yes, this is depressing but I have been feeling these emotions lately. I've been going through a lot and I think it is because I have been denying a lot of my emotions and things around me. I am trying to figure out why I am the way that I am. This song is really just about self-reflection and finding out why you are depressed and why you are alone in hopes of understanding why you feel this way - and moving on - becoming more aware of yourself. Once you are comfortable with yourself and your emotions you can go "on the other side" and you will find what you are so desperately looking for - which is different for everyone. :) yay!

    Great album closer btw
