LITTLE RIVER BAND
By My Side Lyrics
I don't know why at night I just can't sleep,
I don't know why sometimes I get tired of the beat,
and I don't often see the light as it shines through,
don't often get the chance to say I do,
and even so when things ain't right
I understand and want you by my side, every night ...
Out of the blue I gave you my shelter,
into the blue you came like an angle to me,
and I so often fell the need of your laughter,
you turned out to be the one I was after,
and even though you break my heart
I understand and want you by my side, every night, by my side.
The first time I felt I was falling for you,
I only thought, how could it be? You'd never want me too,
I played the games that lovers play, I knew your every charm,
and hoped that time would bring the day I'd have you in my arms ...
And I was deep in the mist, you came to my rescue,
off and adrift alone, I was waiting for you,
now I see all my troubled past (ain't got no troubles) disappearing,
(they're disappearing) I've got the chance at last for a hearing,
and even when we're far apart
within my heart, you're there right by my side.
