    On his side of the bed, he's sleepin' like a baby
    Dreams are dancin' in his head
    Lying with his lady
    It's a peaceful night, and everything's just fine
    On his side of the bed
    But on her side of the bed, those big brown eyes are cryin'
    From the things he never says
    And deep inside she's dying
    As she turns to face the wall, there's no love at all
    On her side of the bed

    If he'd just reach out she'd forget about
    All the times that he let her down
    Oh but in his mind everything's all right
    When the lights go out

    On his side of the bed
    He never even noticed her negligee of red
    The very same one that she wore the night
    That they were wed
    But he never turned his head
    To her side of the bed


    Now on his side of the bed
    He wakes up and turns to say, "I love you" but instead
    All he finds are pages full of words he'd never said
    And that's all she left
    On her side of the bed

      Aw this song is so sad. It seems to reflect how people really live. Men get too involved in work and other activities that they have no time for us.

      Oh yeah, to those who think she is a slut or white trash...just because she sings about how life is in the less fortunate places like trailors or singing about "Wear my jeans a little tight to watch the boys come undone". That is how you sell records. She sings from the heart and from her past experiences. Guys, she has a kid! Why would she be a slut?

      I love this song! It's so awsome, and sad. It reminds me of a sad story I heard a while ago. Good description, Gretchen! *listening to it right now*
