It's not always about the person in the bed. The person beside the bed needs support also.

Beside the Bed.

Will you please just breathe you bastard!

We've got cats to feed and pamper.

There's cities you haven't shown me yet

And countries you promised me I'd see.

There's weddings and the occassional funeral.

Nieces to take to Disney

And nephews to put through college.

It wouldn't hurt if you picked up your clothes

Once in a while.

I'll do the litterbox

If you cut the grass.

There's a whole world out there

That you promised me.

I'm not facing it alone.
