This song was actually a challenge from my then-girlfriend, (now either fiancee or wife, depending on when you’re reading this!) Faye. I had written maybe 4 songs already for The Marketplace, but she astutely observed that it’s all so heartbreak-y. The truth about love songs is they’re very easy to write. From almost any perspective, you have such a wealth of other songs to take ideas and copy from that if you can’t write a love song, you either have never loved or never written a song. So, as much as possible I try to not write the same love song as everybody’s ever written, to try and find unique perspectives to write about.

She wanted to me to write about a perspective that not many songs are really about — outside of the “party club banger” type of song. This is ultimately a song about friendship and camaraderie, and it’s one of my favorite songs I’ve written because that’s not the kind of love you hear about very often and it came out really cute.

[Verse] With every story told, every page we turn together, The ties between our souls, deepen with every passing letter, So never shall we fold, we’ll see the ending of forever,

[Prechorus] And through pain and heartache, You can count on me,

[Chorus] I can see the bright side, Of any cloud that follows, As long as you’re here in my life, I’ll never find myself alone,

[Verse] So when you’re in the cold, I’ll be the warmth that makes you better, Cause every bond we hold, brings the best out of each other,

[Prechorus] And through pain and heartache, You can count on me,

[Chorus] I can see the bright side, Of any cloud that follows, As long as you’re here in my life, I’ll never find myself alone,

[Bridge] Without you, I am suffering, So come and get me, I’ll be by your side,

[Chorus] I can see the bright side, Of any cloud that follows, As long as you’re here in my life, I’ll never find myself alone,
