Lyrics

The Other Side

Written By: Helen Hudson

THE OTHER SIDE

THE WORLD’S A CRUEL & LOVELY PLACE
THE LIFE YOU DRAW WILL BE ERASED
SO WHILE I HOLD MY PEN IN HAND
I’LL TRY TO CAPTURE WHAT WAS GRAND.
I’VE SKETCHED IN PARIS IN THE SPRING
AND ROCKING BABIES IN THE SWING
YOUR EYES WHEN THEY MEET MINE
A LOOK THAT SLOWS DOWN TIME.

NOW I DON’T KNOW. . . WHAT’S ON THE OTHER SIDE.
I HOPE IT’S WORTH THE TEARS I CRIED
MAYBE I’LL FIND ALL I WAS DENIED,
ON THE OTHER SIDE.
BUT FOR NOW I’LL WHISTLE IN THE DARK,
KEEP A HAPPY HEART.
TAKING MY SWEET TIME TO JUST ENJOY THE RIDE
THAT TAKES ME. . . TO THE OTHER SIDE.

I WATCH MY KIDS GROW YEAR BY YEAR
SOMEDAY THEY’LL LOOK I WON’T BE HERE
BUT AS THEY MAKE THEIR MEMORIES
THE’LL ALWAYS HAVE A TRACE OF ME.
THEY’LL WISH ON STARS AND FALL IN LOVE
HAVE BROKEN HEARTS AND MEND THEM UP
WATCH LEAVES TURN RED AND GOLD
FALL BACKWARDS LAUGHING IN THE SNOW. . .
CHORUS
WHO KNOWS WHAT LIFE HAS IN STORE
I ONLY KNOW I STILL WANT MORE
A LIFETIME WOULDN’T BE ENOUGH
TO LOVE THE PEOPLE THAT YOU LOVE
BUT I CAN’T LET MYSELF THINK LONG
ABOUT WHAT’S LOST WHEN I AM GONE
RIGHT NOW YOU’RE CLOSE TO ME
THERE’S NOWHERE ELSE I’D RATHER BE.

I Wanna Die Young

Written By: Helen Hudson

I WANNA DIE YOUNG

I WANNA DIE YOUNG
AT A VERY OLD AGE
AND LIFE EVERY CHAPTER OF LIFE
TO THE VERY LAST PAGE.
KEEP A SONG IN MY HEART
TILL THE LAST NOTE IS PLAYED,
I WANNA DIE YOUNG… AT A VERY OLD AGE.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE
JUST BIDING THEIR TIME
IT’S LIKE THEY’RE NOT DYING TO LIVE
JUST LIVING TO DIE.
NOT ME, I’LL KEEP ROCKING
FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE
CUZ I WANNA DIE YOUNG…AT A VERY OLD AGE.

I’LL BE OUT TAKING CHANCES
AND LEARNING NEW DANCES
AND TIME WILL NOT GET IN MY WAY.
I’LL BE TOO BUSY MAKING UP NEW MEMORIES
AND LIVING MY DREAMS DAY BY DAY.

WHEN MY HAIR TURNS SILVER
AND MY FEET SLOW DOWN
I MIGHT USE DIFFERENT COLORS
BUT I’LL STILL PAINT THE TOWN,
TAKING LIFE’S FINAL CHANCE
WITH THE LAST BREATH I TAKE
OH I WANNA DIE YOUNG AT A VERY OLD AGE,
LORD LET ME DIE YOUNG AT A VERY OLD AGE.
