Your Side Of The Bed

Album: Tornado (2012)
Charted: 96
  • On your side of the bed, there's a picture of our wedding day
    A clock that don't work and the bible that your daddy gave
    It's on the window side, where the moon creeps in at night
    Staring at the ceiling, lying here all alone
    I said a prayer for you, then I said one of my own
    But you don't reach for me, when you lie down quietly

    Tell me how, how'd you get so far away?
    All we have left, are the memories of the love we made
    Are you sleeping with your own regret?
    On your side of the bed

    On your side of the bed there's a burnt down candle flame
    A letter I've started but I didn't know what to say
    No I couldn't write it down, so I try to say it now

    Tell me how, how'd you get so far away?
    All we have left, are the memories of the love we made
    Are you sleeping with your own regret?
    On your side of the bed

    Aren't you even gonna make a sound?
    Your side of the bed
    Turn the other way when I turn the lights down
    Your side of the bed
    Are you lonely? Like I'm lonely?

    How, how'd you get so far away?
    All we have left are the memories of the love we made
    Are you sleeping with your own regret?
    Tell me how, how'd you get so far away?
    All we have left, are the memories of the love we made
    Are you sleeping with your own regret?
    On your side of the bed
    On your side of the bed
    Are you still awake, on your side of the bed. Writer/s: KIMBERLY SCHLAPMAN, JIMI WESTBROOK, KAREN FAIRCHILD, PHILLIP SWEET, LORI MCKENNA

  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is Little Big Town at its peak; I have goosebumps even as I write this. The lyrics, yes, they are absolutely amazing; breathtakingly, heart-achingly beautiful. Yet the vocal harmonies are what send chills through my body. I mean, they have the voice of angels, and even tho it's a sad love song, I get the feeling like I'm in church listening to the choir when I hear it. Excellent accompanying video as well.
