"Sideways" as written by Sara Taylor, Michael Hanmer and Michael Rainbow....
It's not enough to find a moment
As light moves away
We'll leave tonight on empty highways
There's no coming back here

The painted hallways
Forever and always
Are lost to you
How can you criticize
When you're not here to compromise?
Words fade as time goes by
Without you, without you
Fall to the floor
We're watching sideways

As day turns to night
Ghosts in the walls
Through empty doorways
Like we've always been here

The painted hallways
Forever and always
Are lost to you
How can you criticize
When you're not here to compromise?
Words fade as time goes by
Without you, without you

Without you, without you
Without you, without you
Without you, without you

    General CommentIn Chibi's own words:

    "For me that song is about the impermanence of things. Moving on, often literally - moving down a highway away from an experience. Leaving fragments of yourself behind. Never being able to revisit a memory, even if you return to the physical place."

    General CommentIt's not enough to find a moment
    As light moves away
    We'll leave tonight on empty highways
    There's no coming back here

    The painted hallways
    Forever and always
    Are lost to you
    How can you criticize
    When you're not here to compromise?
    Worse fate as time goes by
    Without you, without you...

    Fall to the floor
    (?) sideways
    As day turns to night
    Ghost in the walls
    Through empty doorways
    Like we've always been here

    The painted hallways
    Forever and always
    Are lost to you
    How can you criticize
    When you're not here to compromise?
    Worse fate as time goes by
    Without you, without you...

    Without you...without you...
    Without you...without you...
