From Your Side

Here are the lyrics to a song I wrote back in my less heathenistic days. I have an entry on my to-do list to record this some day but I haven't been very motivated to get it done.

From Your Side

There was a day
I thought I knew just what I wanted
But my heart had gotten in the way
There was no use
I was sullen as a stone
I didn't have a thing to say
I wish that you could carve my heart
So that I could have another start
But we all have our demons
And I know you have your reasons
I just wish I could see the other side
What does it really matter
You tell me there's an answer
But I can't help thinking that there must be more
I know it's not about me
But sometimes it's not so easy
I know the picture's bigger from your side
From your side
There is a way
And though I know which way to go
It doesn't wash the pain away
So now today
There is something I've got to do
I'm going to give it all away
I wish that I could see your eyes
'Cause then I think I'd realize
When the hunger is so strong
And I know I can't go on
You're always there to tell me it's all right
Could it be that I'm too late
But you're so willing to wait
There are better things than this world, in the next
I know it's not about me
But sometimes it's not so easy
I know the picture's bigger from your side
From your side
From your side
