about

This Side of Goodbye was inspired by the tragic loss of my brother Alex...what would I say had I known I wouldn't see him again? Now , there is only silence. I think it applies to loss of all kinds,

lyrics

I might've seen the car door close,
or given one last wave
Read a detailed letter of your plans for future days
Expecting you'd be leaving, we could've shared it eye to eye
But none of that would happen on this side of goodbye

Thinking that tomorrow was the day you'd make it home
I'd have planned my day accordingly knowing that I'd be alone
There'd be quiet recollection , recalling the best of times
All I hear is silence on this side of goodbye

I pretend we see each other, but are too busy to stop
or that I saw your red pickup at the local music shop
I'd rather you were angry, so that I could ask you why, why, why
But all I hear is silence on this side of goodbye

Maybe there has been a storm and all the lines are down
or satellite signal just don't reach this part of town
Those are both good reasons that I can't get your voice on the line
I can only call up memories on this side of goodbye

I pretend we see each other, but are too busy to stop
or that I saw your red pickup at the local music shop
I'd rather you were angry, so that I could ask you why, why, why
But all I hear is silence on this side of goodbye

I'd rather look behind me, to catch up with those I left
Than to have to have faith that I'll see you again
Out of sight, still on my mind
I'm struggling from a hole deep inside
Doors are closed forever, on this side
This side of goodbye
