(David Gates)

So, as you go to find yourself
Don't look too hard
You may pass yourself by
Reaching too high
Wanting the other side of life

And as you go to take your place
Don't go too fast
Just pretend there's no end
Make yourself last
'Til the other side of life

One day you'll find your restless
Searching at an end
You'll think the world has changed
But it's just you my friend

So, as you go to please your heart
Please take your time
Someone's waiting there too
Waiting for you
On the other side of life
He's waiting for you
On the other side of life, ooh, ooh, ahh, ooh

He's waiting for you
On the other side of life
He's waiting for you
On the other side of life
