    she on the left, he on the right
    they sit in their living room
    stare at the fire, sparks up the flu
    escape to the night, bedtime soon

    and sure there's plenty to talk about
    but there ain't much to say
    god's on the mantlepiece
    and what's he got to do with all of this anyway

    and the silence here is written
    it's the holiest you've ever seen
    these two just bookends
    to the spaces in between

    they say they can talk about anything
    unlike so many others they know
    three out of five end in divorce
    a matter of course, they read it was so
    they read it was so

    she closes the book, he puts out the fire
    she turns down the bed, coming dear
    they lie in the dark listening to
    whispering voices in the downstairs room

    she on the left, he on the right
    sparks up the flu, escape to the night
    she on the left, he on the right
    sparks up the flu, escape to the night
