Day 63: “Bed Of Roses” – Bon Jovi. Memories

!!!ITALIANO!!!

Today I have chosen this song exclusively for a personal reason: my memories. I think everyone has songs which remind you moments of life. Naturally the memory is not always related to the content of the song, very often it is a random link.

Today an old friend of mine is coming to see me from far away. While I’m waiting for him, I think about the past years: I can see a group of friends in a car, the speakers cry out for pity and so do the shock absorbers. On the right the sea does not seem to be annoyed by our voices which overwhelm Bon Jovi‘s voice. Everyone sings the lead melody, I sing the harmonisation. A proud and powerful sun seems to laugh with us.

Today’s song is contained in the album Keep The Faith , 1992, the fifth one from this band. With this track I wish you all many fine moments to remember… I’m sorry for the banality, but today I am like this!

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 to night 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 to night 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 to night I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down
I want to lay you down on a bed of roses
For to night 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
