"Other Side" as written by Stephen Christian Arnold, Christian Edwin Mcalhaney, Joseph Milligan, Deon Rexroat and Nathan Russel Young....
Solitary views of the other side of a plane we’ve yet to know
Will we ever get the chance to walk alone
In this life or when we find out that we’re home
What will we hear there

Love me, love me
Why don’t you know me, know me
Hold me, hold me
And trust me, trust me

Inhabitations through
I can finally forget a past you say you never knew
I reach my hands to the sky

Love me, love me
Why don’t you know me, know me
Hold me, hold me
And trust me, trust me

Love me, love me
Why don’t you know me, know me
Hold me, hold me
And trust me, trust me

There’s a time and place
An unknown region of space
I can meet you all there
Throw your arms in the air
Hands towards the sky
And you’ll hear
Hands towards the sky
And you’ll hear

Love me, love me
Why don’t you know me, know me
Hold me, hold me
And trust me, trust me

Love me, love me
Why don’t you know me, just know me
Hold me, hold me
And trust me, trust me

    My InterpretationI think the song is pretty clearly about heaven. "The Other Side" is a pretty common synonym for heaven.

    I think the song shifts narrators throughout. It sounds like the verses are sung from the pov of a person struggling to understand God and heaven:

    Solitary views of the other side of a plane we’ve yet to know
    Will we ever get the chance to walk alone
    In this life or when we find out that we’re home
    What will we hear there

    I think most of the rest of the song is narrated by Jesus or the father. The Chorus:

    Love me, love me
    Why don’t you know me, know me
    Hold me, hold me
    And trust me, trust me

    Is pretty much the exact same thing Jesus said to a number of people in the bible. Why don't you trust me? Why don't you value me? It's a question that I'm sure is asked of many people through prayer.

    The Bridge:

    There’s a time and place
    An unknown region of space
    I can meet you all there
    Throw your arms in the air
    Hands towards the sky
    And you’ll hear
    Hands towards the sky
    And you’ll hear

    Seems to be an attempt to phrase the words and desires of Jesus in modern language. Hey I know this really awesome place, you should go there with me. All you have to do is trust me and worship me. Believe in me and my grace and you will achieve salvation.

    It's also phrased as a response to the human narrator in verse 1, saying you want to hear about heaven, open up to me, trust me, and I'll show you.

    This is more or less a worship song, alternating perspectives between a human narrator and Jesus discussing heaven and salvation, pretty awesome stuff if you ask me.
