MeaningEdit

“There are a couple of lines in ‘By Your Side’ that to me really encapsulate the whole song. One is in the second verse that says, ‘Why are you looking for love? Why are you still searching as if I’m not enough? To where will you go child? To where will you run?’ And the last verse it says, ‘Look at these hands and my side, they swallowed the grave on that night, when I drank the world’s sin so that I could carry you in and give you life.’ ‘By Your Side’ is just a call to anyone who’s struggling or fighting against God thinking they have to work to earn it. It’s calling them to stop looking for what you can do for God and fix your gaze upon what God has done for you. Let that motivate you. We love because He first loved us.” - Mike Donehey (lead singer of Tenth Avenue North)[1]

Lyrics[2]Edit

Lyrics


Why are you striving these days?

Why are you trying to earn grace?

Why are you crying?

Let me lift up your face

Just don't turn away


Why are you looking for love?

Why are you still searching?

As if I'm not enough?

To where will you go child,

Tell me where will you run?

To where will you run?


I'll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

Please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you


Look at these hands, at my side

They swallowed the grave, on that night

When I drank the world's sin

So I could carry you in

And give you life


I'll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

Please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you


Here at my side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

Please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you


And I, I love you

And I want you to know

That I, I'll love you

I'll never let you go


I'll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

Please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you


Here at my side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

Please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you
