1.Always 2.Bed of Roses
ALWAYS This romeo is bleeding. But you can't see his blood. It's nothing but some feelings That this old dog kicked up. It's been raining since you left me Now I'm drowning in the flood. You see I've always been a fighter But without you I give up. Now I can't sing a love song Like the way it's meant to be. Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore But baby, that's just me. And I will love you, baby - Always And I'll be there forever and a day - Always I'll be there till the stars don't shine. Till the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme. And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind And I'll love you - Always. Now your pictures that you left behind Are just memories of a different life Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry One that made you have to say goodbye What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair To touch your lips, to hold you near. When you say your prayers try to understand I've made mistakes, I'm just a man. When he holds you close, when he pulls you near When he says the words you've been needing to hear I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine To say to you till the end of time. Yeah, I will love you baby - Always And I'll be there forever and a day - Always. If you told me to cry for you. I could If you told me to die for you I would. Take a look at my face There's no price I won't pay To say these words to you. Well, there ain't no luck In these loaded dice. But baby if you give me just one more try We can pack up our old dreams. And our old lives We'll find a place where the sun still shines. And I will love you, baby - Always And I'll be there forever and a day - Always I'll be there till the stars don't shine Till the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme. And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind And I'll love you - Always BED OF ROSES 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 tonighte 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 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 tonight 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. 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 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.
