about

2.24.2018 A few night ago my beautiful, gifted niece j-bird took her own life. Crushed. Devastated. A very strange thing, though, happened that night. I went to bed and this song came into my head, almost in it's entirety, the melody, chords, tempo, first 2 verses. I tossed on my pillow debating whether to get dressed and write it out. I didn't, it was a sad song, so I fell asleep. The next day I'd completely forgotten it, until that late afternoon phone call. It flooded back and I finished it, recording until mid-night. This is not meant consciously as consolation, just something that happened. Endless love to Sage, Claire, Cris and especially to you Jae, you're a shining star bright somewhere on the other side.

lyrics

MEET YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE

A 72 ballad capo 2 drop D (rel G)

| A D | A E | F#- D | A E |

1
meet you on the other side
though it might take a while
can't wait to see that smile
smile that'll never die

meet me at the pearly gates
yeah it's gonna be great
all love and no hate
but it was worth the wait

2
see you again
my old friend
'cause it ain't the end
my love I'll always send

and I'll be right there
and we'll be every where
in the soil and the air
being without a care

3
meet you on the other side
though the river is wide
and I'll be by your side
until the end of time

meet me at the pearly gates
try not to be late
by chance or by fate
no matter how long we wait
