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.
