Biography

By the Wayside was formed while in college at ASU 2004. Played lots of shows and got a really good response so they built a studio in Phoenix Arizona and recorded their own CD. Think it turned out pretty good too. What is different about By the Wayside?? Many things! They think that corporate America is ruining the music scene. It sucks to listen to the radio, hear a song you don’t like 1000 times, and then catch yourself singing it later.. Its like finishing a meal that tastes horrible and then ordering seconds.. That is why By the Wayside doesn’t force their music on anyone. On MYSPACE they only added people who requested friendship. They never went through and clicked on 100,000 people that they didn’t know just to find the 5 people that like their sound. Now their Myspace page is 100% effective because every friend they have actually likes our music. If you like good music you will hear about them eventually and hopefully it’s your choice to check them out. By the Wayside sounds like bands they listen to: Taking Back Sunday, Something Corporate, NOFX, Weezer, Brand New, Sublime, Reel Big Fish, and Green Day.

Thank you By the Wayside for caring about the average music listener!
From,
Richard Nixon

Lyrics

Long Time Waiting

Written By: Tyler Mills

Elderly woman walking alone
Hiding her beauty so no one will know
Cold from the rain with no place left to go

Humbled from the begging life
Her last few years were filled with strife
There's no one left who cares

Its been so long
Since she could smile

Wondering where she went wrong
This roads gone on for way too long
She stops and listens

Looking up to the dark sky
She suddenly remembered why
Time's been frozen

Her heart explodes deep inside
Been waiting for this chance to die
For so long

SHE SMILED AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN
AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN SHE SMILED
SHE SPUN IN CIRCLES AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN
AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN SHE SMILED

For the first time in so long (the rain came down)
Nothing else could go wrong

Memories reveal a happy past
Two children who grew up to fast
Taken from her

He could not stand the pain inside
Left a note and committed suicide
The rest is a blur

Waiting for her time to expire
Visions of heaven do inspire
Rain drops take her

SHE SMILED AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN
AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN SHE SMILED
SHE SPUN IN CIRCLES AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN
AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN SHE SMILED

SHE SMILED AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN
AS THE RAIN CAME DOWN
AND HIT THE GROUND
SHE SPUN IN CIRLCLES
YEAH SHE PINS AROUND
AND SHE SPUN AROUND TILL SHE
HIT THE GROUND

Beautiful woman
Lying in the road
Taken by the rain
Its been so long
Since she could smile

Where You Rested

Written By: Tyler Mills

All this is exactly what I wanted,it seems so picture perfect and All the memories in my mind are so haunted, now I just can't get over it All the arrows on every single sign point to an emergency exit Even after all's been said and done, I'm back here on your doorstep I got it so bad, I'm sick I can't get over it None of this is anything I wanted, it's been too short subjected Nothing is as satisfying ply or taunted, now I just can't get over it All the words are stuck between the lines and I'm right here like I promised And even though the flowers are all wilted, I lay them where you rested I got it so bad, I'm sick I can't get over it I want you so bad, so thick I'm stuck inside of it I hate I'm so mad, no time left to get into it, I got it so bad, I got it so bad I hate you for this (that's right cause I'm not over it) I hate you for this I hate you for this (that's right cause I'm not over it) I hate you for this You said we'd try to make things right even if it took us our whole lives (our night is almost over) You'll always be here by my side, goddamn our time's precious tonight (our night is almost over) I hate you for this (that's right cause I'm not over it) I hate you for this I hate you for this (that's right cause I'm not over it) I hate you for this (I got it so bad so sick I cant get over it)

Love Sick Suicide

Written By: Tyler Mills

After reading your letter
I think I"d be better
If I let you go

Your words have no meaning
No sense in competing
My tears over flow

The text on this paper
Proves your love was vapor
And deepens my cut

Im tired of bleeding
My heart keeps on screaming
I'm tearing them up

So time will reverse
I'll dig my hole
To tender affection
Trust-worthy connection
No words of comfort
Silence my soul
The painful reflection
Must stop this infection

SEE NO FUTURE IN YOUR EYES
NO FUTURE IN MY EYES
NO LOVE LEFT IN MY LIFE
NO LIFE LEFT IN MY MIND
SEE NO FUTURE IN YOUR EYES
NO FUTURE IN MY EYES
NO TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE
I CUT TOO DEEP INSIDE

After viewing our picture
It makes me feel sicker
To know I'm alone

Your smiling expression
Holds all my depression
Our love over grown

Take one last glance at her
Her eyes hold no future
My eyes start to shut

I mutter confessions
And feel slow destruction
While burning it up

SEE NO FUTURE IN YOUR EYES
NO FUTURE IN MY EYES
NO LOVE LEFT IN MY LIFE
NO LIFE LEFT IN MY MIND
SEE NO FUTURE IN YOUR EYES
NO FUTURE IN MY EYES
NO TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE
I CUT TOO DEEP INSIDE
