Song Lyrics - Sleeping On My Side

Source

It used to be important
For you to please me
But now it seems
You just avoid me

You make me wait all night
So you can drink another one
When we go to bed
Our love just gets numb

Why don’t you get it over with?
That new guy isn’t going to wait
If he’s the real thing
Just tell me
Before it’s too late

You want my money
To pay your bills
You wear tight skirts
But you give him your thrills

Why don’t you just get on with it
That new guy isn’t going to wait
If he’s the real thing
Just tell me
Before it’s too late

The signs are there
You want to be able to say
I slept on my side
You want to be able to say
You kept me away

Why don’t you just end it?
That new guy isn’t going to wait
If he’s the real thing
Just tell me
Before it’s too late

We still touch
But not like the old way
You used to pull me in
Now you just push me away

I like to write song lyrics, too. Wrote 2 to my then boyfriend last year. I really like this. Your rhythm is just right, words all flow together....just needs some music and you're in business. I didn't even realize that song lyrics were an option on Hubpages. Thank you for showing me this!

@ExoticHippieQueen - Thank you. You can write whatever you want on hubpages.... the music... that's the tough part.
