Bon Jovi

'Bed of roses'

 

Sitting here wasted and wounted at 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 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 irondad fist I wake up and french kiss the morning

While some marching band keeps its 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 wanna lay you down in a bed of roses

For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails

I wanna 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 indimes I'd given each night

Just to see through 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 wanna lay you down in a bed of roses

For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails

I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

And lay you down on a bed of roses

 

Well the hotel bar hang over whiskey's gone dry

The barkeeper'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

Tonight 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 I'd die to defend

 

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses

For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails

I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

And lay you down

 

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses

For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails

I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

And lay you down on a bed of roses
