Alaina, Lauren - The Other Side Lyrics

He said, I see my mama, she looks about 23
She's running my way with the angels
Right next to Jesus
Yeah, his eyes lit up, staring at the living room ceiling
And with his last few breaths, he said, I wish you could see it

Don't you cry for me 'cause I'm in God's glory
And I can see his face, it's amazing
I know you have doubts but I see it right now
I promise it's real, keep praying
I'll be waiting, take your time
And go write a story
That you can't wait to tell me
On the other side
Oh, oh, on the other side, oh, oh

I said, someday I'm gonna get married
Better find a way to be up in the rafters
When I have you a grandbaby
I got somebody good to name 'em after
There's gonna be a lot of sadness
On a lot of happy days
I'll try to think of this moment
This place and hear you say

Don't you cry for me 'cause I'm in God's glory
And I can see his face, it's amazing
I know you have doubts but I see it right now
I promise it's real, keep praying
I'll be waiting, take your time
And go write a story
That you can't wait to tell me
On the other side
On the other side

All my pain, I get to leave it
It's time for me to get my healing

So, don't you cry for me 'cause I'm in God's glory
And I can see his face, it's amazing
I know you have doubts but I see it right now
I promise it's real, keep praying
I'll be waiting, take your time
And go write a story
That you can't wait to tell me
On the other side
Oh, oh, on the other side

Alaina, Lauren The Other Side Comments
  1. GreenEyedMystery

    He wasn't my father-in-law yet, I had hoped one day he would be. He was a great man who raised an amazing son that I get to call mine. I just wished he had made it to Christmas which makes it much harder, but I know he's in a better place as hard as it is on us all. I bet he's up there walking and breathing better than ever. I wonder if Heaven has mountains because if so, that's where he'd be. He loved them. It's killing us now, but it'll get better. We all miss and love you, Ruble! The best "father-in-law" a girl could ask for! I can't wait to see you again one day! If you meet my grandma up there say hi for me! 01-15-1942/12-05-2019 R.H. 💜

  14. Randi Collins

    This song makes me cry every time I hear it. It makes me think of my Grandpa, who was a father figure to me all my life. He passed away in 2006 and I will never forget that day. I remember spending the time with him and noticing his breathing changing. I automatically called my Mom, Grandma, Aunts, and Uncle. It was his time but it was like he was waiting for my Grandma to tell him it was ok to go and she did. After she said it, he passed. I miss him everyday.

  15. Sammie W/H

    I cry now listening to this after hearing the back story. Im bawling.

    Wow. This hit hard. I lost one sister when I was 11 then another sister when I was 13 they was both because of their boyfriend's and then my dad when I was 14 due to a heart attack at home in his sleep and I just lost my mom on October 9th due to lung cancer at age of 19. I cried my eyes out listening to this. I can't wait to see them all again!

  20. Crady Smith

    What an awesome beautiful song and one that hits hard when you've lost both of your parents like I have makes you cry but at the same time fills your heart when you know without a doubt that they have left such a wonderful testimony and hope peace and love and that someday I know i'll meet them again in that heavenly home that surpasses all understanding in this life of just how Incredible the eternal home in heaven will be like and to know there will be no more sickness sorrow pain nor death ever again. Thank you Lauren Alaina for sharing this beautiful song your amazing gifts and your music videos. You are so very talented keep using your gift keep up the good work!

  21. Anita Ware

    Reminds me of my brother and our Mom. We lost him suddenly about a month ago.
    He is with Mom and Jesus and the Angels.

  22. Holly s

    This song hits so hard for me. We lost my Step Dad Chris to ALS Sept 2018. At the end he could not speak and was vegetable like. My mom stayed home and took care of him. The morning he went. They held hands and she played their wedding song. She said after it finished playing. He smiled up at her. Took one last breath. And passed. My sister became pregnant soon after. My niece's middle name is Christine for her Grandpa she will never meet. The 1 yr anniversary of his passing just went by and it hurts just as much now as it did last year.

    Rip Dad. We love you and can not wait to see you to tell you all of our stories

  23. Natalie Taylor

    Thank you or writing this song Lauren - My Mom passed away from cancer 4 years ago. She was diagnosed in January and passed in August. I know she is with Jesus, and can hear her telling me the same thing. The words of this song have blessed me so much. Your vunerable dance on DWTS was the most beautiful of the night and of your performances so far. Thank you - you have blessed many people .

  31. Monica Moats

    I can totally sympathize with Lauren Aliana on this.. my step dad died in February of last year and my mom is in a nursing home with Dementia and Althzhiemers.. The only reason I'm still here is that I have found my soulmate and best friend... It's going to be very hard to get married and not have someone to walk me down the aisle 😥🙏💔

    Lisa Anders

    Monica Moats so sorry sweetie .. Lost my dad to Parkinson's and my momma to Alzheimer's ... I'm older but I still feel like an orphan 🙏. And I just lost my niece on Thursday to an overdose... She was 4 years clean and attending meetings every day .. As weird as it sounds I know she never meant to die!! We are shattered😢😢

    Ashley Duncan

    Thats so sad im so sorry

    Monica Moats

    @Lisa Anders I am so sorry to hear about your loss 🙏💔 😥.. I'll keep you in my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family
