Bed of Roses

A bed of roses
She’s had her throat slit
And her blonde hair
Is all tangled
She looks so peaceful
Taste’s so deceitful
But she’s so sweet, oh
She’s my angel

A bed of roses
And a razor
The curtains closed and…
I can’t face her
‘Cause I love her
But I hurt her
‘Cause she hurt me
She hurt me badly

A bed of roses
Romantic music
But something cool, yeah
None of that gay shit

A bed of roses
Eyes so vacant
Sheets stained red
She lays naked
Covers tangled
Around her legs and…
Hands are fists, yeah
She’s my angel

A bed of roses
Her final slumber
We’ll lay together
‘Cause I love her
I’ll never leave her
I’ll always hold her
But as time passes
She gets colder

A bed of roses
I’m so sorry
She’s so far away
Her eyes are black
I never meant to…
Fucking hurt you
Oh God, I loved you
But now you’re never…
Coming back

Bed of Roses
