Mother's Army - By Your Side

When you were young, you rode alone
You had no one by your side
You based your life on what you believed
You put your heart before your pride
And then, she walked into your life
And you wore her like a crown
And you made her a woman
Just so you could keep her 'round

By your side, she will always be
By your side, I wish you'd set her free
By your side
I always thought that she should be with me
But she's by your side

A lesser girl would have gone astray
She'd have left you for the sun
Chasing love and vanities
You’d find that love had been and gone
You took for granted that you'd win
And for this, you are renowned
But when the dealer dealt you
Less than winning hands
She stayed around

By your side, she will always be
By your side, I wish you'd set her free
By your side
I always thought that she should be with me
But she's by your side.

By your side, she will always be
By your side, I wish you'd set her free
By your side
I always thought that she should be with me
By your side, she will always be
By your side, you know she’s never gonna leave
By your side
You know the girl would be much better off with me
By your side, I've just got to find a way
I've just got to find a way, I pray and I pray
By your side, girl, why, just can't you see?
By your side
She should turn around and walk to me
By your side
By your side
