Country music duo Native Run—comprised of Rachel Beauregard and Bryan Dawley—have announced the release of their latest single, “Sleeping In the Bed I Made.”
Written by Rachel, Bryan, Parker Welling and Casey Brown, “Sleeping In the Bed I Made,” is the first release from the duo since 2016’s “When I’m Taken,” from their EP of the same name.
One Country is exclusively premiering the new single before it’s available on Nov. 10. The new tune is a sultry mid-tempo song that is being told from the perspective of a woman who is telling the other woman, that the man she’s with now is only as a result of the work she put in to their previous relationship.
“‘Sleeping In The Bed I Made’ is inspired by our friends relationship,” Native Run tells One Country. “She devoted years of her life to this person, and out of the blue he ended things and began seeing someone else right away. This song is written from her perspective as she deals with a new woman benefitting from all the “work” she put into making him a better man.”
Native Run recently took to Facebook to express their feelings about the new music.
“It’s been a long time (I️ mean, feels like forever) since we’ve released music,” they wrote. “But we can’t stop making music, folks. We needed time to write, play shows, enjoy married life, figure out what the heck we want to say and how that should sound.”
The past year has allowed the duo to create new music and focus o their personal lives. Bryan and his wife welcomed a baby girl, Clara June, on Nov. 3 and Rachel wed former Edens Edge member Dean Berner on Dec. 10, 2016.
“Sleeping In The Bed I Made”
“I bet your head is on my pillow / on my side by the window / and when you close your eyes / you’re laying right beside a damn good thing / I may never get the credit / but my love made him better / now every single night / he’s laying right beside you and not me
“You’re sleeping in the bed I made / Sleeping with a man I made / You’re living the dream, while I’m wide awake / sleeping in the bed I made
“If he were still the way I met him / he wouldn’t look like what you’re getting / He learned how to get from what he got / I fanned that flame from just a spark / I guess I never thought I’d get burned by my own ferno I’m so tired.
“But you’re sleeping in the bed I made / Sleeping with a man I made / You’re living the dream, while I’m wide awake / sleeping in the bed I made.
“You got the best of my love / how’d I end up sleeping alone while you got the best of my love / how’d I end up sleeping alone while you’re sleeping in the bed I made / you’re sleeping with the man I made / you’re living the dream, while I’m wide awake / sleeping in the bed I made / you’re sleeping with the man I made / you’re living the dream, while I’m wide awake / sleeping in the bed I made.”
