"Bed of Roses" by Bon Jovi


Sitting here wasted and wounded with this old piano

Trying hard to capture the moment this morning 

     I don't know

'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head

And some blonde gave me nightmares

I think that she's still in my bed

As I dream about movies they won't make of me

     I'm dead



With an iron clad fist I wake up to Frech kiss the

     morning

While some marching band keeps its own beat in

     my head

While we're talking

About all 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 in 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 in 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 through this payphone

Still I run out of time

Or it's hard to get through 

Untill the bird on the wire flies me back

     to you 

I'll just close my eyes and whisper, baby

     blind love is true



(CHORUS)



The hotel bar hangover whiskey's

     gone dry

The bar keeper's wig's crooked

And she's giving me the eye

I might have said yeah

But I laughed so hard i think I died



When 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 alone

But you know that don't

Mean I'm not lonely  I've got nothing

     to prove

For it's you that I'd lie to defend



(CHORUS)
