Nickel Creek - This Side Lyrics

One day you'll see her and you'll know what I mean.
Take her or leave her she will still be the same.
She'll not try to buy you with her time.
But nothing's the same, as you will see when she's gone.

It's foreign on this side,
And I'll not leave my home again.
There's no place to hide
And I'm nothing but scared.

You dream of colors that have never been made,
You imagine songs that have never been played.
They will try to buy you and your mind.
Only the curious have something to find.

It's foreign on this side,
And the truth is a bitter friend.
But reasons few have I to go back again.

Your first dawn blinded you, left you cursing the day.
Entrance is crucial and it's not without pain.
There's no path to follow, once you're here.
You'll climb up the slide and then you'll slide down the stairs.

It's foreign on this side,
But it feels like I'm home again.
There's no place to hide
But I don't think I'm scared.
(there's no place to hide)
(there's no place to hide)
But I don't think I'm scared.
(there's no place to hide)
But I don't think I'm scared...

  42. Reneevee133

    1:38 "And the truth is a bitter friend" has the BEST harmony. pulls my heartstrings!
    I keep coming back to this song year after year

  43. Debra Simms

    I used to borrow this CD from the library & wherever I went on my bicycle I listened to Nickle Creek and their Amazing Music!
    and that ,my friends, is how to memorize an album in the shortest amount of time.
    PS; I lost the CD player 4 years ago in a thunderstorm while on my fell off.
    Now I pay $47 a month to listen using " you tube " .I also take photographs, 5500 so far.hardly ever make a phone call

  44. Boregasmic Gaming

    This song brings a lot of memories :)

  45. CozI'mBored

    Worked out to this song, lost muscle mass and intensity

  46. Daniel Paul

    Friendzone anthem.

  47. BigE1293

    I'm just looking up vids of people flipping nickels and landing on their side, now YouTube keeps recommending this song to me :/

    There's worse videos to be recommended. I'd say this is an improvement over nickel flipping videos.

  58. Mis understood

    right! lol

  59. nemesisgenius

    You're right, but I heard "This Side" while in a coma or a premonition in 1995, at least 6 years before it was ever recorded. I began imagining songs that probably weren't even written yet back in 95. Shortly after I came to, I forgot about this song til I "actually" heard it in the fall of 2002, then I had that deja vu experience. Ironically, it has those lyrics I commented on my previous comment. Kind of a trip.

  60. nemesisgenius

    I first heard this song in an ambulance and while in a coma back in April of 1995. I like that line You dream of colors that have never been made/ You're imagining songs that have never been played. Only the curious have something to find.


    but i believe this song was released in 2002..hmm?
