Bed Of Roses

In the style of

Bon Jovi

Lyrics

sitting here wasted
and wounded
at this old piano

tryin' hard to
capture the moment
this morning
i don't know

'cause a
bottle of vodka's
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
when i'm dead

with an ironclad fist
i wake up
and french kiss
the mornin'

while some
marching band
keeps its own beat
in my head
while we're talkin'

about all of
the things that
i long to believe
about love the truth
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

oh 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
each step that i take's
on my way home

a king's ransom
in dimes
i'd give each night
to see through
this pay phone
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

oh i wanna be
just as close as
the holy ghost is
and lay you down
on a bed of roses

well this hotel bar's
hangover whiskey's
gone dry
the barkeeper's
wig's crooked and
she's givin' me the eye

well i might have
said yeah
but i laughed so hard
i think i died
ooh yeah

now as you
close your eyes
know i'll be thinkin'
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 nothin'
to prove
for it's you
that i'd die to defend

i wanna lay you down
in a bed of roses
for tonight i sleep
on a bed of nails
oh 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
