"Other Side" as written by and Jim Gaven....
Ten tonnes may fall,
Down from the fallen sky
Onto the other side
My heart may break,
Don't look the other way
Don't look the other way

Oh, oh, oh

Fools may rise
All fall in their time
Burning with the forest fires
And all we want is to feel like all we got
Didn't cost us everything
Even if we never win

Oh oh oh

(Who am I on the other side?
You were mine on the other side)

Oh oh oh

(Who am I on the other side?
You were mine on the other side)

Free my mind,
On with the other loves
On with the other lives
And all I want is to feel like all I got
Didn't cost me everything
Even if I never win

Oh oh oh

(Who am I on the other side?
You were mine on the other side)

(You were mine on the other side
You were mine on the other side)

Oh oh oh

Who am I on the other side?
You were mine on the other side)

Oh oh oh

(Who am I on the other side?
You were mine on the other side)

Ten tonnes may fall,
Down from the fallen sky
Onto the other side

    My InterpretationI feel like the song is about letting go, understanding that things may happen. The "Other Side" to me represents the end of life. I think when James Shaw says "And all I want is to feel like all I got Didn't cost me everything" I think this means that you spent all of your time worrying instead of simply living and experiencing.

    I really enjoyed this tune, so lovely and so true. Like always from Metric.

    General CommentMy friend just killed herself last month. A few weeks prior, she listened to nothing but this song for two days.

    I don't know the meaning of the lyrics, but they must of meant something to her.
