"The Other Side" as written by Morten Veland and Morten Veland....
Sail away, my little sister
Sail away to the other side

There's a light and a darkened road
There's a night and a fading hope
There was a dream that once was mine
But now it seems it has passed with time

Sail away, my little sister
Sail away to the other side
Sail away, my little sister
Sail away far into the night
Where time seems much better
Than this void called life

There's a voice inside my head
There's a hope, now long since dead
It's all a wonder, will I abide?
I hear you calling from the other side
I hear you calling from the other side

Sail away, my little sister
Sail away to the other side
Sail away, my little sister
Sail away far into the night
Where times seems much better
Than this void called life

I hear you calling from the other side

Sail away, my little sister
Sail away to the other side
Sail away, my little sister
Sail away far into the night
Where time seems much better
Than this void called life

    My InterpretationThe song is either straightforward, about the death of a loved one, or, the option I prefer, its maybe about someone saying good bye to their hopes and dreams that she had as a child - the little sister is herself, and she's giving up on her hopes and dreams; saying that that child inside has died, and she's sending her to the other side, which seems better than "the void called life" that she's mired in. She keeps hearing her dreams calling, but knowing they're dead, by 'sending them to the other side', she keeps them pure and sort of saves that innocent younger self from the tainted, hopeless world she now lives in. IDK if that's possibly what it really means, but that's how I heard it.

    General CommentIt seems to be a song about a little sister who died, and is therefore passing to "the other side" IMO. Btw, does anyone know what the words are that the choir sing in the middle? That's the best part! :D

    Song MeaningThe song is about a loved one passing away, and if you seen the video. The little girl get's into the boat. Its talking about how Viking's use to send their dead out to sea. That is where " Sail away " comes in at. Its a very lovely song.
