"By Your Side" as written by Jeremy Hora, Danny Craig and Dallas Smith....
I wasn't myself for so many years
It seemed cold and confused
My mind lost in the shadows
When I awoke I could see so much clearer
Held high it seems I won't be there to hear her

And I won't be by your side
No way of knowing
And I won't be by your side
Well I'll take my chances

In this place I was left for dead
Held down and mocked by all eyes watching
Now free, well I'll be standing much taller
What won't kill me makes me stronger

And I won't be by your side
No way of knowing
And I won't be by your side
Well I'll take my chances

And I won't be by your side
I'm free from your chains
And I won't be by your side
There's no time to cry

And I won't be by your side
No way of knowing
And I won't be by your side
Well I'll take my chances

And I won't be by your side
I'm free from your chains
And I won't be by your side
There's no time to cry

    General CommentYet there's various strata involved. The people that stare, the people who they stare at, the shadows stood upon and stared up to. Maybe it's all simply an illusion of sorts. This person is not alone, they have their psyche still with them, and the shadow of a time forgot.

    General CommentThis song is about leaving your past and going for your happiness.

    North Node = Soul Purpose

    South Node = Shadows

    The Nodes of the Moon represent points of personal karmic imbalance. The North Node represents the kinds of experiences that we must work to develop in order to work with our karma, and to grow spiritually. The South Node represents those experiences and qualities that come naturally to us, that are over-developed, and that we tend to fall back on. The South Node can be a point of undoing unless we develop the North Node experiences and qualities. Thus, consciously working on these "life lessons" can bring us to increased happiness and fulfillment. If we over-emphasize and fall back on the qualities of our South Node, at the expense of developing our North Node, we may have a difficult time feeling personally successful.
