lyrics:  

The man by the river said listen to the sound
of the wind in the trees and the water flowing down
I said to the man Iím just here for the ride
Take me to the side of the earthly delights
Take me to the other side

As a young man in the city, I was aiming to please
The pleasure made me fly, the pain brought me to my knees
The love I give, and the love I take
Leaving nothing but destruction in my wake
Good god take me to the other side

CHORUS:
Take me to the other side
Cause you aint going to learn to laugh until you learn to cry
Even if you lose at least you know you tried
Wonít you take me to the other side
Take me to the other side

CHORUS

And all that time I was ramblin round
The man by the river was listening to the sound
I took the high road, and he took the low
I soon knew I was ready to go
Take me to the other side

Years had passed and the lines on my face
Told of every up and down of that crazy rat race
The man was by the river in the bright morning sun
I said take me back where I come from
Take me to the other side

CHORUS
