    Question idiom or not?

    hello teachers
    i want to ask about the idiom (to the left), in fact i don't know if it is idiom any way, i know it from a song and i heard that when you say to some one: (to the left) it means that you want this person out of your life........

    It could come from dividing a group of people by making them stand to the left or right to form smaller groups.
