Sheryl Crow – Always On Your Side lyrics
My yesterdays are all boxed up and neatly put away
But every now and then you come to mind
Cause you were always waiting to be picked to play the game
But when your name was called, you found a place to hide
When you knew that I was always on your side

Well everything was easy then, so sweet and innocent
Your demons and your angels reappeared
Leavin' only traces of the man you thought I'd be
Leavin' me with no place left to go from here.
Leavin' me with many questions all these years.

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are you left to wander, all alone, eternally
This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well they say that love is in the air, but never is it clear,
How to pull it close and make it stay
Butterflies are free to fly, and so they fly away
And I'm left to carry on and wonder why
Even through it all, I'm always on your side

But is there someplace far away, someplace where all is clear
Easy to start over with the ones you hold so dear
Or are we left to wander, all alone, eternally
This isn't how it's really meant to be
No it isn't how it's really meant to be

Well if they say that love is in the air, never is it clear
How to pull it close and make it stay
If butterflies are free to fly, why do they fly away
Leavin' me to carry on and wonder why
Was it you that kept me wandering through this life
When you know that I was always on your side

    I think the meaning is clearer in the Crow/Sting Version. A second try at a relationship, that doesn't work out, and for whatever reason he is the one to blame.
    Even though she's boxed up her memories, she still thinks about him now and then. They loved each other once and they gave it another try, but his demons made him run again. Afraid to hear she loves him. And she's the one that really can't let go always left wondering why and the elusive answer to the question of how to make love stay. Wondering why he always leaves when she is and has always been. By his side. Just 98 cents worth of my 2 cents worth.
