All I want now is to be with you
Cause you know I've been everywhere else
Looking back at what you got me through
You knew me better than I knew myself

When I feel lost and I can't find my way
When words are at a loss I can hear you say

I'll be by your side, when all hope has died
I will still be around oh and I, I'm still on your side
When everything's wrong, I will still be around
By your side

Fighting my way back to where you are
The only place I ever felt at home
Stumbling backwards through the dark
I know how it feels to be alone
And where we go is where I wanna be
And in the silence I hear you say to me

I'll be by your side, when all hope has died
I will still be around, oh and I, I'm still on your side
When everything's wrong, I will still be around

I can't wait another day to show my space between
Your heart and mine, and you're all that I need
You say I

I'll be by your side, when all hope has died
I will still be around, oh and I, I'm still on your side
When everything's wrong, I will still be around
By your side, by your side, by your side, by your side, by your side

    My InterpretationJust simply about someone who will stick by the other no matter what. They'll hold on and just BE THERE. By there side. FOR them. They know that THAT person needs them by their side and the other person may have been let down by them before but they are being reassured that while they may have left once before, they're there to say for the long haul this time. Pretty self-explanatory. :) I love it.

    General CommentThis song is about a friend always being there but one of them wants to be more than just friends but the other just says that they will be their side:
    Fighting my way back to where you are
    The only place I ever felt at home
    Stumbling backwards through the dark
    I know how it feels to be alone
    And where we go is where I wanna be
    And in the silence I hear you say to me

    I'll be by your side, when all hope has died
    I will still be around, oh and I, I'm still on your side
    When everything's wrong, I will still be around

    But the song is mostly about someone being there for you =)

    My InterpretationThis is what love should look like. This has to be one of my fav songs of all time. Simple, but beautiful in its simplicity.

    General CommentIf you were Christian like the lead singer, the answer would be obvious. This song is about you and God. God is always by your side.
