The Wrong Side of Love

 Play

Said you were gonna stay at home wash your hair and paint your toes
Any man know that’s just a woman’s secret code that she wants to spend sometime alone

So I took the hint to get a drink and party with my best man
Don’t remember coming in or how many beers I had
When I woke I was sure this was just a bad dream
But the empty bed and the note you left told me differently
Woke up on the wrong side of love

Woke up on the wrong side of love
If Love’s the windshield my heart is the bug
Woke up on the wrong side of love
Hang over hanging seeing double you’re twice as gone
Woke up on the wrong side of love

I told my heart you really weren’t gone probably just down at your Mom’s
So I went room to room looking for any kind of proof
But what I found said I’d seen the last of you

Cause on the mantle above the fireplace was a picture of your smiling face
Hand in hand with my best man who bought last night but didn’t pay
Found our joint bank account taped just below
Lipstick red letters said you both are zero
Woke up on the wrong side of love

Woke up on the wrong side of love
If Love’s the windshield my heart is the bug
Old issues of Hot Rod ain’t nothing that ain’t gone
Woke up on the wrong side of love

Woke up on the wrong side of love
If Love’s the windshield my heart is the bug
Turned the porch light on there’s a sold sign in the yard
Woke up on the wrong side of love

She took everything I own
Took the rights to this damn song
Woke up on the wrong side of love

The story behind the song…
This is a humorous take on the aftermath of a love that went wrong. No this really didn’t happen to me – well at least not quite in this way.
