Side by Side

[audio wav="http://mattralph.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/06-Side-By-Side.wav"][/audio] Side by side we’ll take it, In our lives we’re wasted, We had a good life but it turns out to be, The shadows we’re chasing were just you and me, Side by side so easy, In our lives completely, We were for always, Was always to be, But I couldn’t take it, And now that I see, Where are you, Did you always, Side by side we’ll take it, Give us half a chance and we’ll make it, Starting behind you, It was so clear to see, I’d...
