Bed of Roses (Steve Gillette and Rex Benson) You're that one special woman I thought I'd never find. With the strength to be gentle and the courage to be kind. And though it hasn't all been roses, still I know you understand. And one of the these nights when we're sharin' a dream, I'm gonna take you by the hand, And lay you down on a bed of roses. In that peaceful shelter only love can provide. I'll lay you down on a bed of roses And then I'll lay me down right by your side. There's no diamond on your finger, just a simple wedding band. It seems your knight in shining armor is just an ordinary man. Though I promised you a kingdom and we don't have all we planned, One of these nights when we're makin' believe I'm gonna take you by the hand, And lay you down, on a bed of roses In that peaceful shelter, only love can provide. I'll lay you down, on a bed of roses, And then I'll lay me down, right by your side. And then I'll lay me down, right by your side.
