Marianas Trench – Beside You lyrics

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.

    This song reminds me of me and my boyfriend. :/ he's in the army, and it hurts so much not being able to see him or hear from him. And I miss him to death. And like in the video, its like I feel him there and then I open my eyes and. He's not. Same with my dreams. But I know he loves me, and I love him more. And I know he's always there for me, even if he can't say it. God, I miss him: '(but this song makes me feel better.

    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.

    The songs clearly about a guy that loves a girl enough to sheild her from any pain. "when your tears are spent on your last pretense" one definition of the word pretense is "the act of pretending" so when her tears are spent on something that she pretended she felt, he will be right there to hide her and again, sheild her from pain. "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 beside you.. " these lyrics are pretty clear and honest, he's saying that he will be her strength when she has none, he will be her shield. Her cover, when things get rough, that he will always be right there beside her. "when the space between the things you know is blurry nontheless" I take this as hes saying he will be the truth to her lies, when the things she knows are blurry and she doesn't know what exactly to feel. "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.. " the meaning I see behind this is that he will help her understand everything she wants to say but she doesn't know how to say it. "trust in me, trust in me; don't pull away; trust in me, trust in me.. " pretty clear - he wants her trust, he wants her to stay with him and he wants to know she trusts him. "cause i'm just trying to keep it together; cause i could do worse and you could do better.. " basically hes saying that he wants to be strong for her and hes trying to keep it together but shes making it really hard for him, and that neither one of them are prizes, but he could do worse then her and she could do much better. So yeah, that's how I see the song. To me, its one of the most beautiful songs. One of my favorite bands is marinas trench so yeah, I love all of their songs. This one stood out the most :).

    I think this song is amazing it means so much it always helps me through ruff days and helps me when I need a good crying session, I think josh ramsay dedicated this to his girlfriend at the time and what a lucky girl she is. He's saying that no matter what happens he'll always be there for her, the best boyfriend in the world told me to look up this song and told me he'd always ne there for me no matter what I did. We broke up and I begged and swore to god I'd never lie to him again he gave me another chance I guess he is the best boyfriend especially since he let me fall asleep on him and didn't even care.

    It means, I want josh. I want him to be by my side, and I know he will. That no matter what may happen, he is there for me. When no one else understands, he does. That he'll comfert me though the toughest times of my life. When I can sleep beause I am crying too much, he'll put my head on his cheast untill I fall asleep. When I'm hurt or exhausted, he'll hold me close untill I am better when everything is blury, he'll make it clear as day. When I can't find the words, he'll wisper them softly to me. He won't let anybody else break me.
    Thank you josh, for writing such good music'
    and for saving my life.
