#TBT || Paul van Dyk – The Other Side

Take it back to the year 2005 with this classic trance tune from Paul van Dyk!


Released 12 years ago by Paul van Dyk, “The Other Side” featuring Wayne Johnson, is the epitome of melodic, beautiful Trance. With a chill, euphonic sound, “The Other Side” takes listeners on a beautiful journey that displays the pain of losing people in our lives that we love. This song, written in a display of sadness for people affected by the 2004 devastating tsunami that hit southeast Asia, shows how truly amazing Paul van Dyk really is. Knowing that the song is dedicated to those that we are waiting to see on the other side, it’s easy to fall in love with this track and recognize how deep and beautiful it is. It displays how dedicated Paul van Dyk is to his profession and shows how each song that he produces has meaning and purpose and truly touches the hearts of the ones who listen to it.

Paul van Dyk – “The Other Side” Lyrics:

When this broken through
I will comfort you
When I wake my tongue is tied
Daylight brings the great divide

Weeping like the rain
Whispering your name
Long to be reunified
Believe the sun will rise
When I reach the light
I will see you on the other side

I’m sure the sun will shine
When I reach the light
I will see you on the other side

See you on the other side
When I close my eyes
See you on the other side
When I close my eyes

See you on the other side
When I close my eyes
See you on the other side
When I close my eyes

Speeding City lights
Leave me weak tonight
Oh I miss your warmth inside
Stars came out to shine
Across the waterline
I can feel you on the other side

See you on the other side
When I close my eyes and I reach the light
See you on the other side
When I close my eyes

See you on the other side
When I close my eyes and I reach the light

See you on the other side
When I close my eyes
