"By Your Side" as written by Jorg Gradwohl, Christopher Henry and Darren James Mew....
So long my dear departed
Where did you go
I can't believe you're gone and
The lights go on so slow
I'm missing you each morning
Days gone by
Again I feel the longing
To look you in the eye

You know I'll never let you go
You know I'll never hurt so bad
And if It takes a thousand Years
I will be right there by Your Side
You know I'll never hurt so much
When I lost you I was blind
And every time I catch me with tears
I will be right there by your side

I Feel you when you're watching from afar
To Young to leave me standing
I wonder where you are
The precious time we spent
My fondest memories
I'll hold on to the promise
That You Made To Me

You know I'll never let you go
You know I'll never hurt so bad
And if It takes a thousand Years
I will be right there by Your Side
You know I'll never hurt so much
When I lost you I was blind
And every time I catch me with tears
You are right there by my side

I stare into his eyes and then I see your face
A dying love inside
A love you can't replace
You're looking down with pride
And let me show what I Can tell

So long my dear departed
Where did you go
I cant believe your gone, and
My life goes on so slow

You know I'll never let you go
You know I'll never hurt so bad
And if It takes a thousand Years
I will be right there By Your Side
You know I'll never hurt so much
When I lost you I was blind
And every time I catch me with tears
You are right there by my side

    General CommentI think this is one of the greatest power ballads ever written. It is even more incredible live.

    I heard that it was a song dedicated to his father, whom passed away in 2002. David Bierk's artwork is also featured on the cover of Angel Down.

    But personally, I just feel like its a great song to mellow out to when youve lost a relationship you never wanted to end. And despite all your longing and want, you cant have it...but you can still show it. Even if it does take a thousand years for the other person to realise it.

    General CommentThis song is actually about his dad who passed away.
    He really misses him.
    In the bridge :
    "I stare into his eyes(meaning his sons)
    And then i see your face (his fathers)
    Undying love inside(for both his father and son)
    A love you cant replace.
    You're looking down with pride
    Let me show what I can't tell."
    But i think this song could take on different meanings.
