Bed Of Roses

Sitting here wasted and wounded
At this old piano
Trying hard to capture
The moment this morning I don`t know

`Couse a bottle of vodka`s
Still lodged in my head
And some blond gave me nightmares
I think that she`s still in my bed

As I dream about movies
They won`t make of me when I`m dead

With an ironcast fist I wake up
And french kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps
It`s own beat in my head while we`re talking

About all of the things
That I long to believe
About love and the truth
And what you mean to me

And the truth is
Baby you`re all that I need

I want to lay you down on a bed of roses
For tonite I sleep on a bed of nails
I want to be just as close as
The holy ghost is
And lay you down on a bed of roses

Well I`m so far away
That each step that I take is on my way home
A king`s ransom in dimes I`d give each night
Just to see trough this payphone

Still I run out of time
Or it`s hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire
Flies me back to you

I`ll just close my eyes
And whisper baby blind love is true

I want to lay you down……

The hotel bar hangover whiskey`s gone dry
The barkeeper`s wig`s crooked
And she`s giving me the eye
I might have said yeah
I learned so hard I think I died


Now as you close your eyes
Know I`ll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again

Tonite I won`t be allone
But you know that don`t mean I`m not lonely
I`ve got nothing to prove
For it`s you that I`d die to defend

I want to lay you down…..
