"To Be by Your Side" as written by Bruno Coulais and Nicholas Edward N Cave....
Across the oceans across the seas
Over forests of blackened trees
Through valleys so still we dare not breathe
To be by your side

Over the shifting desert plains
Across mountains all in flames
Through howling winds and driving rains
To be by your side

Every mile and every year
For everyone a little tear
I cannot explain this dear
I will not even try

Into the night as the stars collide
Across the borders that divide
Forests of stone standing petrified
To be by your side

Every mile and every year
For every one a single tear
I cannot explain this dear
I will not even try

For I know one thing
Love comes on a wing
For tonight I will be by your side
But tomorrow I will fly

From the deepest ocean to the highest peak
Through the frontiers of your sleep
Into the valley where we dare not speak
To be by your side
Across the endless wilderness
Where all the beasts bow down their heads
Darling I will never rest
Till I am by your side

Every mile and every year
Time and distance disappear
I cannot explain this dear no
I will not even try

And I know just one thing
Love comes on a wing
And tonight I will be by your side
But tomorrow I will fly away
Love rises with the day
And tonight I may be by your side
But tomorrow I will fly tomorrow I will fly
Tomorrow I will fly

    General CommentI don't think it is on a Nick Cave album. It's the soundtrack for the movie "Le peuple migrateur"

    General CommentI'm surprised noone ever posted this song before... Well, to me it's about a man who could and will do anything for the person he loves, but he can't grant he'll be in love forever.
