Ben Harper - By My Side Lyrics

Don't you get ahead of me
And I won't leave you behind
If you get unhappy
Show me a sign

There's no love like lost love
No pain like a broken heart
There's no love like you and me
And no loss like us apart

Promises promise is
Only a word
And when softly spoken
Is never heard

And a heart
Is not a stone
And is fragile
When alone

By my side
By my side
Won't you be by my side
By my side
By my side
Won't you be by my side

My care for you
Is from the ground up to the sky
It's over under up above
Down below and to the side

No use in pretending
No use in saving face
My love is never ending
You are my saving grace

By my side
By my side
Won't you be by my side
By my side
By my side
Won't you be by my side
