Tim Culpepper – “Toss And Turn”

VERSE
There lies her favorite cotton gown, across my empty easy chair
And a red lipstick stained cigarette, left to burn
As I close the door on the morning light, reality sets in
There’ll be no more nights for me she’ll toss and turn

CHORUS
Cause she tossed her ring, on the table by the door
And took her turn to drive away, while I walked the floor
Now I lie awake in the bed I’ve made, on the pillow, that once was hers
And between sheets cold as stone, I toss and turn

VERSE
In the smoky, neon haze of a honkytonk, with it’s dim-lit atmosphere
I let the taste of wine-kissed lips pull me down
Lord, she could not forgive, and I’m left to live
Without the love, I left to die
Now the thought of all I lost, turns me inside out

CHORUS
Cause she tossed her ring, on the table by the door
And took her turn to drive away, while I walked the floor
Now I lie awake in the bed I’ve made, on the pillow, that once was hers
And between sheets cold as stone, I toss and turn

TAG
And between sheets cold as stone, I’ll toss and turn
