To Be By Your Side

Song Author Nick Cave Lyrics by: Nick Cave Performer: Nick Cave Submitted by: johannsig
[Em7]Across the oceans, a[D]cross the seas, [Cadd9]Over forests of [Gmaj7/B]blackened trees.
(Through) [Em7]valleys so still we [D]dare not breathe, [Cadd9]To be by your side[D].  

[Cadd9]Over the shifting [Em]desert plains, [Cadd9]Across mountains [G]all in flames.
Through [D/F#]howling winds and [Cadd9]driving rains, [D]To be by your [Em]side.

[Cadd9]Every mile and [Em]every year [Cadd9]for every one a [G]little tear.
[Am]I cannot ex[Em]plain this, Dear, I [Am]will not even [Em]try.   

[Em7]Into the night as the [D]stars collide, [Cadd9]across the borders [Gmaj7/B]that divide
[Em7]Forests of stone standing [D]petrified, [Cadd9]to be by your [D]side.

[Cadd9]Every mile and [Em]every year [Cadd9]for every one a [G]single tear.
[Am]I cannot ex[Em]plain this, Dear, I [Am]will not even [Em]try.   

For I [Cadd9]know one [D]thing, [Cadd9]Love comes on a [D]wing.
For [Em]tonight I [D]will be [G]by your [Cadd9]side.      
But [Am]tomorrow I will [Em]fly.   

From the [Em7]deepest ocean to the [D]highest peak, [Cadd9]Through the frontiers [Gmaj7/B]of your sleep.
[Em7]Into the valley where we [D]dare not speak, [Cadd9]To be by your [D]side.
[Cadd9]Across the endless [Em]wilderness [Cadd9]where all the beasts bow [G]down their heads.
[Am]Darling I will [Em]never rest till [Am]I am by your [Em]side.

[Cadd9]Every mile and [Em]every year, [Cadd9]Time and Distance [G]disappear
[Am]I cannot ex[Em]plain this, dear No, I [Am]will not even [Em]try.   

And I [Cadd9]know just one [D]thing, [Cadd9]Love comes on a [D]wing.

For [Em]tonight I [D]will be [G]by your [Cadd9]side.      
But [Am]tomorrow I will ..
[Cadd9]fly a      [D]way,
Love [Cadd9]rises with the [D]day  

And to[Em]night I [D]may be [G]by your [Am]side   
But to[Em]morrow I will [Em], To   [Em]morrow I will [Em]fly, To[Em]morrow I will [Em]fly.   

Across the oceans, across the seas, Over forests of blackened trees.
(Through) valleys so still we dare not breathe, To be by your side.

Over the shifting desert plains, Across mountains all in flames.
Through howling winds and driving rains, To be by your side.

Every mile and every year for every one a little tear.
I cannot explain this, Dear, I will not even try.

Into the night as the stars collide, across the borders that divide
Forests of stone standing petrified, to be by your side.

Every mile and every year for every one a single tear.
I cannot explain this, Dear, I will not even try.

For I know one thing, Love comes on a wing.
For tonight I will be by your side.
But tomorrow I will fly.

From the deepest ocean to the highest peak, Through the frontiers of your sleep.
Into the valley where we dare not speak, To be by your side.
Across the endless wilderness where all the beasts bow down their heads.
Darling I will never rest till I am by your side.

Every mile and every year, Time and Distance disappear
I cannot explain this, dear No, I will not even try.

And I know just one thing, Love comes on a wing.

For tonight I will be by your side.
But tomorrow I will ..
fly away,
Love rises with the day

And tonight I may be by your side
But tomorrow I will , Tomorrow I will fly, Tomorrow I will fly.
