Bon Jovi: Bed Of Roses

BED OF ROSES
/Bon Jovi/

Sitting here wasted and wounded
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 ironclad 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, the truth
And what you mean to me
And the truth is
Baby you're all that I need

[Chorus:]
I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I'll sleep on a bed of nails
I wanna be just as close as your Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on 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
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I'll just close my eyes and whisper:
'Baby blind love is true'

[Chorus]

Well this hotel bar's hangover
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

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
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 that I'd die to defend

[Chorus] [2x]
