Artist's Description

SOLD on Ebay
Acrylic and impasto medium on flat sheet of canvas

11″ × 7.9″

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, 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 it’s own beat in my head
While we’re talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love, the 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’ll sleep on a bed of nails
I wanna be just as close as your Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on a bed of roses

Well I’m so far away the step that I take’s on my way home
A king’s ransom in dimes I’d give each night
To see through this pay phone
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, whisper baby blind love is true

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails
I wanna be just as close as your Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on a 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 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 wanna lay you down in a bed of roses For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails I wanna be just as close as your Holy Ghost is And lay you down
I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails I wanna be just as close as your Holy Ghost is And lay you down on a bed of roses
