Comments:
Songwriting for "I'm Still On Your Side" began in Vancouver with myself and Jimmy Barnes, and was completed later by Jimmy and Jonathan Cain.
Lyrics: Emotions ran high and the words were strong
Heard the screen door slam and you were gone
You can't win a fight you don't understand
And I wake up alone reaching for your hand

Like a cold wind in December
When we don't see eye to eye
I want you to remember
I'm still on your side

When you need me girl
Still on your side

As sure as the river runs to the sea
There'll have to be times we both disagree
Sometimes I feel like shouting
It's like a freight train in my heart
Make you see they'll be no doubting

I'm still on your side
When you need me girl
Still on your side

And I look up to see you standing there
But you just look right through me
Somebody tell me I'm dreaming
Pretend you don't care

As you turn round and walk out that door
Sometimes I feel like shouting
It's like a freight train in my heart
Make you see they'll be no doubting

I'm still on your side
Like a cold wind in December
When we don't see eye to eye
I want you to remember
I'm still on your side
Na - na - na - na - na - na
I'm still on your side
