"The Other Side" I'm over on the other side Where life and death softly divide Left my skin and bones behind Now I'm over on the other side Can you feel me there with you ? My breath is gone but I'm not through Loved you then and I still do From over on the other side I can fly, really fly Below the earth … all through the sky Tell 'em all I did not die I'm just over on the other side It's good here on the other side The sweetest songs, the bluest skies Thank you for the tears you cried But it's good here on the other side I can fly, really fly, below the earth All through the sky Tell 'em all I did not die I'm just over on the other side The world is smaller than a needle's eye Where life and death softly divide When you leave your skin and bones behind I'll be waiting on the other side I can fly, really fly, below the earth All through the sky Go tell 'em all I did not die I'm just over on the other side
