When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while

Oh way oh way oh oooo
Oh way oh way oh oooo

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

When you're overwhelmed and you've lost your breath
When the space between the things you know is blurry nonetheless.
When you try to speak but you make no sound
And the words you want are out of reach but they've never been so loud

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

I will stay.
Nobody will break you,
Yeah.

Trust in me, trust in me.
Don't pull away
Trust in me, trust in me.
I'm just trying to keep this together, because I could do worse and you could do better

Tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you.

    To me, this song means that he's always going to be there for the one that matters most.. I wish I had the guts to say this to the one I love.

    This clearly seems to be a love song. For me, it indicates something deeper. It represents my relationship with god, who i can trust to never leave me and be by my side each day that passes. Beautiful. It is a cry for a deeper relationship. Someone is claiming their love, expressing what it means to him or her as an individual, but there is no indication of reciprocation. Could also be the cry of a best friend.

    To me the meaninng is when you are always alone, sad, or depressed there is always someone to cheer you up and make you feel better and its also if you have a girlfriend what it means to her is that you love her so much that even if you died your spirit is always with her whereever she is

    this song is so expressive, and josh ramsay has gone though so much during his lifetime, which makes the fact that he could care so much for others just that mcuh sweeter, and Beside You, just that much more memorable.
