"By My Side" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Matthew Darrick Roberts and Robert Todd Harrell....
They blazed a trail I dared to run
They built this world and I have come
I need another, like a brother,
For a cryin' shoulder

This could be the last time, you will
Stand by my side
I can feel my soul it's bleeding, will you fly
With me this evening

Sober mind time now is gone, they carved my
Body not of stone
A petty maze of emptiness, I've said the hell
With all the rest

This could be the last time, you will
Stand by my side
I can feel my soul it's bleeding, will you fly
With me this evening

This could be the last time, you will
Stand by my side
I can feel my soul it's bleeding, will you fly
With me this evening

This could be the last time, you will
Stand by my side
I can feel my soul it's bleeding, will you fly
With me this evening

    General Commenti feel that this song is saying, this is the
    last time you will be with me.
    they have given you several chances and every
    time you screw it up. this is your last chance,don't mess it up,
    or this could be that last time you stand by my side.
    this is my favorite song, i always listen
    to it. when im mad i blast it and for some
    reason every timeit cheers me up

    General CommentMy take on this is that it's about someone with a terminal illness, and they know they will die soon. This might be their last chance to be with the person they love, and they don't want to waste it.

    General Commentwhen i listen to this song i picture somebody knocking on the door of someone that was once thier best friend-had thier differences and so on. but on this night the s**t hit the fan (insert situation of choice here), and help is needed, and there is only one person to ask.

    tonight there is going to alot of stuff happen, it may be good, may be bad. but there is no one else i would rather go through hell with, another like a brother, will you fly with me tonight?

    General CommentThis reminds me of a military song in the midst of a fire fight. I love the guitar arrangment in this song...
