By Your Side

from by Sean O'Donnell

lyrics

My stories never ended where the guy would get the girl
and every shell uncovered yielded dirt, instead of pearl
but all of that dissolved the day you crashed into my world
I came to you a skeptic, and my walls you did disarm
it was just the steady diet of the time spent in your arms
you go build your dreams and I’ll keep them safe from harm

Because you’re more than I ever could dream
all that I wish I could be
my sentences you can complete
I don’t know where I went so right
my days all enriched by your life
and I’ll spend every one by your side

life before us isn’t what the world sets standard by
it’s not exactly typical but just to simplify
that if you’d bring home the bacon, then I will make it fry

Because you’re more than I ever could dream
all that I wish I could be
my sentences you can complete
I don’t know where I went so right
my days all enriched by your life
and I’ll spend every one by your side
hold your hand every time that we fly
talk you down when you need it
'til all fears have receded
watch twelve hours of some city’s real housewives
I don’t care about the next thing
you’ll forever be the best thing

I don’t want my words to just be something that I typed
I want to be the man you’ve dreamt about since you were five
and I want to break the mold on how much love you give your wife

Because you’re more than I ever could dream
all that I wish I could be
my sentences you can complete
I don’t know where I went so right
my days all enriched by your life
and I’ll spend every one by your side
