“The Other Side” Lyrics

I had a dream last night
The worst in many years
Had me biting on my pillow
Had me waking up in tears
I was knocking on a door
I’d been knocking all my life
Expecting great things on the other side

On the other side
Expecting great things on the other side

There was a beam of light
I sensed the time was near
I was getting all excited
Saw my future bright and clear
The lock gave out a roar
And the door slid open wide
I was free to walk out on the other side

On the other side
Finally free to walk out on the other side

That’s when the dream got frightening
I was not at all prepared
For the empty hall that met me
And the truth that lived in there
The castle and the king
And the diamonds in the sky
Were nowhere to be seen on the other side

On the other side
No, there were no lights on the other side
On the other side
Yeah, the lights were off on the other side

Now, if the dream is right
And if I’m thinking clear
I guess I should be thankful to have woken up right here
And not half-way up a ladder into an empty sky
Not looking for a better place to live my life
No, I think I’ll just stay and live it on this side

On this side
I’ll just stay and live my life on this side
