By My Side

This song is by Little River Band and appears on the album First Under the Wire (1979).

I don't know why at night I just can't sleep
I don't know why sometimes I get tired of the beat
And I don't often see the light as it shines through
Don't often get the chance to say I do
And even so when things ain't right
I understand and want you by my side
Every night

Out of the blue I gave you my shelter
Into the blue you came like an angel to me
And I so often feel the need of your laughter
You turned out to be the one I was after
And even though you break my heart
I understand and want you by my side
Every night
By my side

The first time I felt that I was falling for you
I only thought how could it be
You'd never want me too
I played the games that lovers play
I knew your every charm
And hoped that time would bring the day
I'd have you in my arms

And I was deep in the mist you came to my rescue
Off and adrift alone I was waiting for you
Now I see all my troubled past (ain't got no troubles)
Disappearing (they're disappearing)
I've got the chance at last for a hearing
And even when we're far apart
Within my heart you're there right by my side
Ain't it right
Every night
By my side
