Bon Jovi – Bed of Roses – 1993

    Paroles

    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 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 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
    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
    That each step that I take is on my way home
    A king’s ransom in dimes 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
    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 giving me the eye
    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 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

    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 on 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
