The Other Side

One last turn to look back at the sun
a moment drags on forever before it’s gone
and lately I’ve been wondering what it’s like to pass on
time is moving faster now, life is shorter than it’s long.

A dark shadows’ been followin’ me around
quicksand masquerading as solid ground
and I can’t go to bed, it’ll happen again tomorrow.

And overnight my children have grown up too,
and the idea of me and you
is nothing but a daydream from a former life.

My body hurts more now when I fall
and in my heart there’s an eternal lonely coyote call
I’m just a’wanderin’, passing the time
this life is just a stepping stone to the other side.

The other side.
They say I’ll feel painless and whole
when I set down the weight of all this sorrow
on the other side.
The other side.
If what they say is true
I will spend an eternity with you
on the other side.

My body hurts more now when I fall
and in my heart there’s an eternal lonely coyote call
I’m just a’wanderin’, passing the time
this life is just a stepping stone to the other side.

The other side.
Mama don’t cry for me
‘cus I’m finally free, oh I’m finally free…
I’m finally free.
