"When You Lie Next to Me" is the title of a debut song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Kellie Coffey. It was released in December 2001 as the lead-off single and title track from her album When You Lie Next to Me. To date, it is Coffey's only Top 10 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. Coffey wrote this song with J.D. Martin and Trina Harmon.
"When You Lie Next to Me" is a country ballad, backed by piano and strings with steel guitar fills. The song's female narrator describes telling her lover of the intense feelings she has for him whenever "[he] lies next to [her]," insisting that they don't waste any chance to spend time with each other.
The music video was directed by Deaton-Flanigen Productions. In the video, Coffey is shown performing the song from various locations within a large house: standing in a hallway with the wind blowing in, sitting on a pillow surrounded by lit candles, and resting on a pedestal in the middle of a pool.
"When You Lie Next to Me," after spending 33 weeks on the chart, reached a peak of number 8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for the week of July 13, 2002. The song also had crossover success on the U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, achieving a peak of number 14 in January 2003.
