I’ll Be By Your Side

words & music by Chris LaVancher © 2018 BMI

You’ve got 21 days of being dry
Looking at a lifetime of one day at a time
I could say that it gets easier
But that’d just be a lie
It’s on you, but I’ll be by your side
It’s on you, but I’ll be by your side

No one ever plans to lose control
Or dig themselves so deep into a hole
I will throw a rope down to you son
You gotta climb it on your own
It’s on you, but I’ll be by your side
It’s on you, but I’ll be by your side

Bridge:
Can’t help thinking it’s my fault
For what I did or didn’t do
Maybe we can start again
And take … these … steps
Side by side

I long for the days when you were young
Just a Band-Aid, a kiss and you were done
And the hardest drug you ever had
Was a comforting thumb
It’s on you, but I’ll be by your side
It’s on you, but I’ll be by your side
