"The Other Side" as written by and Will Hunt Tim Mccord....
Make me whole again
Open your eyes
Taunted by the shadows of your light
Cold and far away
Like you're not even mine
Undo everything and take me higher
Never believing what they say 'cause I'm

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home

I'm not giving in
I want you back
Holding together by the shards of our past
Stole my heart away
I can't let you go
Break these chains and let me fly to you
high above the world below
Over and over in my mind

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home

I am so lost without my place inside your heart
I won't survive I need to know you hear me
Awaken and release my love

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me
Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home

    General CommentI hadn't thought of it like that, but it definitely makes sense. As in 'Like you' she makes references to being with her sister again - such lines as - "Blinding wall between us. Melt away and leave us alone again." and "There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you, I'm coming for you." The metaphors about being reunited seem to come from the same feeling in both songs, eg. she feels her sister is on the other side of the "blinding wall" between them. Perhaps I didn't pick up on this at first because 'hello' and 'like you' were very slow and melancholy, where as this one is very fast paced and confident. One of my favourites of the new album!! :)

    General CommentMaybe about her sister, in the same vein as 'Hello' and 'Like You'

    My InterpretationIn my interpretation, she wants to die to meet again someone who lost (who died) "on the other side", that is, afterlife.
