Next To You



I really dreaded writing the follow up ballad to "Castles in the Sand" from the 'TRUTH' CD... But the writing came at a time when I hit a new level in life - New wife, pregnant with my son - Now if you can't find something sweet to sing about at a time like that... This one just wrote itself until about 3:45 in the morning, and it says exactly what I was feeling then AND now.



It’s a silent Sunday morning

Sunlight on your face

The world goes on around us

While you dream in sleeping grace

Sometimes I feel so lucky

To be the man to hold the key

To a lifetime of tomorrows

And our unknown destiny


I don’t pretend to know it all

But I know this much is true

I’m looking at forever in your eyes – I’ll be standing next to you


In a venture to the moon and back,

I’d meet with Father Time

To treasure every second spent

Between your heart and mine

Making memories together

And sharing all your days

I’ll be the one to touch your face

And wipe your tears away


If the world falls down on you

I’ll be there to pull you through

Yes I can see forever in your eyes – and I’m standing next to you


And if I get to heaven first

I’ll be smiling down on you

I will be forever in your eyes

I promised you forever by your side

I will live forever in your eyes – standing next to you


I’ll be standing next to you
