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  Still lodged in my head
And some blond gave me nightmares  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 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 bed of roses 

Well I'm so far away
Step that I takes on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes give each night 
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 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 the 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
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 thinking about you
 While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
 Tonight won't be alone 
To 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 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 bed of roses
