"Brighter Side" as written by Sabelle Breer, Andrew Fromm, David Greenberg, Matthew Meschery, John Charles Edney and Geoffrey H. Turney....
Sometimes
I forget that you're not here
Can't believe it's been a year
Since you flew away
And I never got to say goodbye
Good times
Hangin' out til the break of dawn
Listening to Bob
And singin along
Every little thing it's gonna be
It's gonna be all right...

I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side
And one day I'm gonna be there too
Where the sun is shining and the water's blue
I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side
I know you're somewhere where you're finally free
You'll always be a part of me
Like the moon is to the sea

They say you don't know
A good thing till it's gone
But I got to say they're wrong
I knew you were a good friend
A good friend all along
I wish the world wouldn't be so cold
As to take such a beautiful soul
But despite it all I know we gotta carry on

I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side
And one day I'm gonna be there too
Where the sun is shinin and the water's blue

I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side
I know you're somewhere where you're finally free
And you'll always be a part of me
Like the moon is to the sea

I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side..
Always be a part of me...

If I could rewind time
Then I'd like to let you know
Just one thing before your time go
That every moment you were living was a blessing to me
And I saw inside of you things that others couldn't see
Now people put you down for the way that you lived
But those people never knew you the way that I did
Don't be ashamed of who you were of how you died
I know you just wanted to find the brighter side...

I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side
And one day I'm gonna be there too
Where the sun is shining and the water's blue
I know that you're gonna fly
Somewhere brighter on the other side
I know you're somewhere where you're finally free
And you'll always be a part of me

I know that you're gonna fly
I know that you're gonna fly

    General CommentI think this song is about someone you love dying, maybe suicide. And the songs reflecting on all the good times had with the person. Great song.

    General CommentIt's about Death, weather it be murder, suicide, old-age, natural, or anything can't be determind, but, it keeps saying something along the lines of... "You're gone, you never knew how much I cared, why'd you leave so early, I'm sure it better on the other side..." Type of deal.

    General Commenta friend who od'd to me - "Don't be ashamed
    Of who you were
    Of how you died "

    and

    Now people put you down
    For the way that you lived

    show this i think - it's about coming to terms with it and also understanding the risks in drug culture. i love the song anyway

    General Commenti think itz about a friend who committed suicide and that person is just trying to get over it...

    "Don't be ashamed
    Of who you were
    Of how you died
    I know you just wanted
    To find the brighter side"

    General CommentThis song is about Bradley Nowell, the late vocalist/guitarist from Sublime. OPM and Sublime were friends and part of the whole SoCal music scene in the 90's
