Critical ReceptionEdit

On July 22, 2014 in a track-by-track Billboard review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "5SOS's debut album has clearly entered its contemplative stretch, as "Beside You" follows "Everything I Didn't Say" as another dead-serious mid-tempo ballad about longing to be next to somebody you miss. "Beside You" is more successful in pairing Luke Hemmings' yearning vocals with a soaring melody, and the words aren't clumsy enough to slow down the singer's momentum." [1]

LyricsEdit

Calum:
Within a minute I was all packed up
I've got a ticket to another world
I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go
Silent words are hard to speak
When your thoughts are all I see
Don't ever leave, she said to me

Luke:
When we both fall asleep, underneath the same sky
To the beat of our hearts at the same time
So close but so far away
(Can you hear me?)

She sleeps alone
My heart wants to come home
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you
She lies awake
I'm trying to find the words to say
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you

Calum:
Another day, and I'm somewhere new
I made a promise that I'll come home soon
Bring me back, bring me back to you

Luke:
When we both wake up underneath the same sun
Time stops, I wish that I could rewind
So close but so far away

She sleeps alone
My heart wants to come home
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you
She lies awake
I'm trying to find the words to say
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you

There are pieces of us both
Under every city light
And they're shining as we fade into the night

Calum:
She sleeps alone
My heart wants to come home
I wish I was, I wish I was

Luke:
She sleeps alone
My heart wants to come home
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you
She lies awake
I'm trying to find the words to say
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you

She lies awake
Beside you
I wish I was, I wish I was

Calum:
She sleeps alone
My heart wants to come home
I wish I was, I wish I was
