Back On Your Side
Chris Isaak Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You can talk about true love, say we're through.
And I do my best pretending I, don't love you.
But when they put you down, they're always surprised, cause' then I'm.
Back on your side, back on your side, back on your side baby I'm,
Back on your side.

And it was friends who told me stories from the start.
But I'm not listening now, I'm listening to my heart.
And no one blames you, if you really don't believe but baby I'm,
Back on your side, back on your side, back on your side baby I'm, I'm back on your side.

You know I've always loved you and I love you still.
You know I've always loved you and I always will.
Baby I'm, back on your side, back on your side, back on your side, baby I'm,
Back on your side.




I'm back, back on your side, darling I am back, back on your side.
I'm back on your side, back on your side, back on your side, oh.

Overall Meaning

The song "Back on Your Side" by Chris Isaak is a reminder that true love never fades away. Despite the fact that he can pretend he doesn't love his partner and that others might have talked to him about the situation, he always falls back into his partner's arms. The singer seems to hint that his love for his partner is unbreakable, even if they have gone through a difficult patch. The line "And no one blames you, if you really don't believe" suggests that his partner may feel uncertain or untrusting of their relationship as a result of past events or outside interference.


Isaak's clear voice carries an emotional weight that complements the song's message of devotion. The repeated chorus of "back on your side" reinforces the song's central theme and conveys the idea that no matter what happens, the singer will always return to his beloved's side. The song has a very retro sound, reminiscent of the 1950s and Elvis Presley's unique style, which is fitting for the heartfelt and timeless message that it conveys.
