I'm on the other side
of where our lives used to be
I'm on the other side
of where our lives used to be

Every push of my feet in the sand
reminds me
together is not where we stand anymore
Every kiss to meet my hand
defines me
and opens a new door
To all the little lies
well, they call and they wait
and they comfort and save me from nothing

I'm on the other side of where our lives used to be
And I can feel all right about whatever was good for me
Baby, I wanna go back
You were supposed to come with me
All I ever wanted was to be with you
Yeah, supposed to come with me
Anything I've started now I'll never do

You're just a postcard out
or so they say
I'm holding
records for more sent out in one day
If there is a road I'm meant to take
Well, I'm going
back on the ones to say
all the better times when you were mine
and the cats are fine but they miss you

I'm on the other side of where our lives used to be
And I can feel all right about whatever was good for me
Baby, I wanna go back
You were supposed to come with me
All I ever wanted was to be with you
Yeah, supposed to come with me
Anything I've started now I'll never do

I'm on the other side of where our lives used to be
And I can feel all right about whatever was good for me
I'm on the other side of where our lives used to be
And I can feel all right about what's good for me
Oh, baby I wanna go back
Baby I wanna go back
Baby I wanna go back
You were supposed to come with me
All I ever wanted was to be with you
Yeah, supposed to come with me
Anything I started now I'll never do
You were supposed to come with me
All I ever wanted was to be with you
Yeah, supposed to come with me
Anything I started now I'll never do

    General CommentThis song is relatively easy to understand, and is just a testament to love. She loved someone and now the relationship is over. She can be happy and move on, but she will always love him no matter where life takes her. I think that just speaks to human nature. I was in love once, and our relationship is over and we hardly ever talk anymore. I am starting to see someone else now, and I am truly getting over the initial emotional turmoil that is inevitable, but regardless, part of me wants to go back, and I will always have a love for him. The part of this song that really "gets me" so to say, in terms of evoking emotion, is "You were supposed to come with me, all I ever wanted was to be with you". It's like she was abandoned, and it's tragic and sad.
