BON JOVI


Bed Of Roses Lyrics

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 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 want to lay you on a bed of roses
For tonigth I sleep on a bed on nails
ohh... I want to be just as close as the 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 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 want to lay you down on a bed of roses
For tonite i sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the holy ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

The hotel bar 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

When you close your eyes
Know i'll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonite 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 want to lay you down on a bed of roses
For tonite i sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the holy ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

Bon Jovi is my favorite band of all time. I've been a fan since 'Runaway'. Jon's voice is amazing. The way his emotion and depth comes through when he sings physically affects me... I will never get tired of Bon Jovi songs.... EVER!!!!

The nearest thing to deep true love is unfortunately tears and pain...But Hey! Lovers! Do not give up! Do not ever do that! The most likely thing to happen is that if you keep trying it will come true

for me, this song is a piece of poetry..its so masculine, it conjures up a pastiche of images like roses,pearls,grand piano on a stage in an old opera house...wine goblet smudged with crimson lipstk

Wolven.Yes,this is a love song.It's just not about the conventional love that love songs are usually about.It's about trying to keep living when your love isn't returned.It's still real,pure and love.
