When Nobody Cared

30-DAY BLOGGING CHALLENGE
DAY 16: A SONG THAT MAKES YOU CRY

The first song that came to mind to today’s topic is On The Side of Me by Corrinne May. I first heard this on the radio, I didn’t  know its title and whoever sang it, so when I got home from school, I looked for it by typing “on the side of me” in the search engine. I was still in college then.

There was a time, during my on-the-job training days, when I had this song on-loop. With all honesty, it brings me to tears every single time. I am reminded by my mother and a few close friends whenever I hear this song. Without further ado, I will leave you to its music, and I hope you dedicate this to the people who remained with you even at your lowest point in life:

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

‘Cause 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, you’ve opened your heart to show me what I’m worth

‘Cause 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

‘Cause 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
Nobody cared
But you…

Yeah you choose to be
On the side of me
On the side of me
