Along the other side


I walked along the river – I’m walking along the river
People floating in the stream  People swimming in the stream
Accompanying the swimmers – Leading the companions
Never in the river myself – Always from the river bank

Never went under as I became – Never go under as I am
Had to keep the pace – Want to lead the race
Felt pushed or pulled anyway – Don’t feel pressure anymore
It was the wrong side of the river – It’s the right side of the river

I knew there’s another side – I remember there was another side
I need to cross the water first – From where I crossed the water then
What about the hands I’ve hold – There were hands I held
Will they follow me to there – They didn’t follow me to here

Slowing down as I cross the stream – Speeding up as I move along
My loved ones hands were torn off – My loved ones hands to reach again
Is it for the crossing only – Be it for eternity
And we’ll rejoin on the other side – And we’ll rejoin in this lifetime soon 

They didn’t know this side – They have learned about this side
They didn’t choose this side – They now belief in this side too
The other side is their side – The other side was their side
Their side is determining the hand – The hand did determine their side

I had to choose the other side – I had to leave the other side
I belong to the other side – I never belonged to the other side
I feel naturally alone – I’m feeling naturally connected
Cannot change the side again – Cannot change the hand again
