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

There's no love like lost love
And 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, 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?

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

There's no use in pretending
No use in saving face
For my love is never ending
And 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?
Won't you be by my side?
Won't you be by my side?
