You Choose To Be On The Side Of Me

I was doing the laundry yesterday morning when I heard this beautiful song. It has become my habit to listen to the radio while doing my chores. My father told me once when  I was young that singing or just simply listening to the radio will make any chore or work easier and it helps pass the time away. Before you know it, the dreaded job is done. I have since followed his advice and I’ve grown to love it. Well back to the topic. Hehe. I was listening to Home Radio 89.5 when I heard a new song. Home Radio 89.5 by the way is my favorite radio station. When my ears are not plugged to my iPod–I listen to Home Radio. I heard  a very beautiful song that caught me with its inspiring and heartwarming lyrics. I remembered my bebeh when I was listening to it. How he was there when I needed a friend and someone to help me. That time when I was so down. That time when I had to go away because of some bad thing that I’ve done. And countless times that I’ve been bad and needed his help. My bebeh knows all the ‘skeletons in my closet’ and yet he still loves me and accepts me for who I am. Instead of forsaking me he helps me overcome my bad side and helps me grow. He’s always there by my side to guide me and make me not be the person I was before. Now you guys whose wasting the time to read this post know the reason why I really love my bebeh. Why I am always writing about him. I’m just so addicted to my bebeh. I keep telling him that he’s my lifeline and I’m sure that I’ll die if he leaves me.

Now back to the song. I didn’t know the title of the song so what I did is I wrote down the chorus then googled it at the office. I found out that this song was written and sung by Corrine May (born Corrine Foo May Ying) . She’s a Singaporean singer-songwriter whose currently based in Los Angeles, CA. I am now a fan of Corrine May. And this song is going to be a part of my wedding.

On The Side Of Me
Corrinne May

I’m not the easiest person to love
I’m often the one who lets things go unresolved
Yet you choose to be, on the side of me, on the side of me
Yet you choose to be, on the side of me, on the side of me.

I’m not too proud of some things I’ve done in my life
The skeletons in my closet are too big for me to hide
Yet you choose to be on the side of me, on the side of me
Blessed charity, you’re on the side of me, on the side of me.

Everyone needs a friend to hold
when it’s cold outside, and there’s no place to go
Everyone needs a friend to hold
All alone I cried there was no place to go
I remember when nobody cared but you.

I’m not the easiest person to love
But you opened your heart and show me what I’m worth
Cos you choose to be on the side of me, on the side of me
What a mystery, you’re on the side of me, on the side of me.

Everyone needs a friend to hold
when it’s cold outside, and there’s no place to go
Everyone needs a friend to hold
All alone I cried there was no place to go
I remember when nobody cared
I remember when nobody cared but you
Cos you choose to be, on the side of me, on the side of me.
