Jimmy Somerville – By Your Side – August 1995
Jimmy Somerville – Songtext
Whatever we may do Whatever we may fall All I ask of you Please love me too, like I love you
Always, always By your side
We share the pain inside Together we will try To understand, why? For those who die, so many friends Goodbye
Always, always By your side Always, always By your side By your side
If life is all we are Then shine like every star Nothing lasts forever Time will make our history As love will too
Always, always By your side Always, always By your side By your side By your side
Always, always Always, always By your side
