Post Malone - Otherside

[Chorus 1]
I been waiting wide awake for the waves to come and take
Take me right to you
One hundred bottles of the good shit couldn't even bring you back
What am I to do?
Feel like I'm circling a giant all I see is the remains of an ugly truth
One hundred models I could follow all the way to hell and back but they can't replace you

[Bridge]
Oh, oh, oh, ohh
Oh, oh, oh, ohh
Oh, oh, oh, ohh, ohh
Oh, oh, oh, ohh
Oh, oh, oh, ohh
Oh, oh, oh, ohh
Oh, oh, oh, ohh, ohh

[Verse 1]
I was puttin' on for you like a jersey
What I didn't know then couldn't hurt me
Never thought you were gonna do me dirty
Let me into cover on the east side I was burning
But that's just the way it goes
Wish that I could have control
Everybody dies alone

[Refrain]
Save my breath but I lost faith a long time ago
Dream nightmares
I guess we're getting used to losing hope
I don't even wanna know why you don't answer when I call your name
Are you on the other side? Will you save us?
Or will you run away?

[Chorus 2]
I'm still waiting wide awake for the waves to come and take
Take me right to you
One hundred vials of denial I know they won't bring you back
What am I to do?
Cover, alibi, motive when I'm lying to myself of the ugly truth
Quitters strangers to the flame
We will never be the same if we make it through (and we can make it through)

[Verse 2]
My back is up against the wall
But I used to feel invincible
Yeah it was us against the world
But somehow, someway, the take is coming
I remember back then
Played my cards right you were my best hand
Still you keep me guessing
Wonder will I ever get the message

[Refrain]
Save my breath but I lost faith a long time ago
Dream nightmares
I guess we're getting used to losing hope
I don't even wanna know why you don't answer when I call your name
Are you on the other side? Will you save us?
Or will you run away?

[Outro]
Are you on the other side? Will you save us?
Or will you run away?

On “Otherside,” Post discusses his feelings of anguish for a girl that betrayed him. In the chorus, he describes how all of the alcohol and models in the world could not replace the girl who left him. He also expresses his loss of faith in God. This is shown by his use of religious symbolism throughout the song, for example: "Say my prayers, but I lost faith a long time ago" The title of the song may be a nod to the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 1999 hit “Otherside.”
