The Other Side

Verse 1

Oh it’s a messed up world
That we are living in
Where we have no control
Of our own destiny

God knows what’s left for me
Under the blossom tree
But in your case my dear
You never got to see

All of your hopes and dreams
Not even a Christmas scene
Wrapped up and filled with glee
Never got to believe

Pre-Chorus

And though these years have passed I
Still don’t understand, how you
Had your life, taken away
Through the night
Barely three months old and
Never to get older, you
Left a hole in our hearts when you fell asleep forever

Verse 2

I was always a happy child
Life was never ending
But as I watched them bury
You deep under the ground
I learned
That this was only the beginning

Pre-Chorus

And though these years have passed all
I can do is hope, that you’re
Doing better on the other side
(The other side)
Whatever that is
Does it exist
I don’t really know
But truth be told

Chorus

It’s all I’ve ever known
It’s all I’ve ever known
It’s all I’ve ever known
It’s all I’ve ever known
Are you home?
Are you home?
Are you home?
Are you home?
Are you home?
Are you home?

Bridge

Sweet MacKenize
Angel can you see me?
Are you home?
Sweet MacKenize
Angel can you reach me?
Are you home?

Sweet MacKenize
Angel can you find me?
Are you home?
Sweet MacKenize
Angel can you hear me?
Are you home?

Pre-Chorus

And though these years have passed all
I can do is hope, that you’re
Doing better on the other side
(The other side)
Barely three months old and
Never to get older, you
Left a hole in our hearts when you fell asleep forever
