"The Other Side of Life" as written by and Gates....
So as you go to find yourself
Don't look too hard
You may pass yourself by
Reaching too high
Wanting the other side of life

And as you go to take your place
Don't go too fast
Just pretend there's no end
Make yourself last
'Til the other side of life

One day you'll find your restless searching at an end
You'll think the world has changed,
But its just you, my friend

So as you go to please your heart
Please take your time
Someone's waiting there, too
Waiting for you
On the other side of life

She's waiting for you
On the other side of life

    My InterpretationMy interpretation is that the narrator is talking to himself. He's advising himself to be careful with his heart and to take his time finding himself before he's ready to pursue the right woman. Once he reaches his goal of finding himself, he'll be ready for her, whoever she is, because he'll know himself better, and will therefore be able to make better decisions regarding his love life.
