Ben Harper – By My Side lyrics

Don't you get ahead of me and I won't leave you behind if you get unhappy show me a sign.

There's no love like lost love no pain like a broken heart there's no love like you and me

And no loss like us apart

Promises promises is only a word and when softly spoken is never heard and a heart is not

Stone and is fragile when alone

By my side by my side won't you be by my side by my side by my side won't you be by my side

My care for you is from the ground up to the sky it's over under up above down below and to

The side. No use in pretending no use in saving face my love is never ending you are my

Saving grace

By my side by my side won't you be by my side by my side by my side won't you be by my side
