Lying here looking at the ceiling from the left side of the bed,

I take this side because of you,

Because those first times sharing a bed,

This is how we laid next to each other.

Do you remember?

Do you still sleep on the right?

Silly how this all got set,

But I think we picked it earlier,

Laying on the sofa that night,

Before you went into service,

That’s the night it was all decided.

Even now, after all these years,

Although I am not sleeping with you,

I still sleep on the left side.
