Daniel Lanois – Sleeping In The Devil's Bed lyrics

I thought of you in blue and red
I thought of you where you were playing
I thought of you in my bed
You were there bound and chained

I thought of you there next to me
Wearing your pretty face
I thought of everything you could be
Sleeping in the devil's bed

I looked for you when lights were low
And I payed for what I had
I looked for you way down below
Till I felt I was going mad

I think of you and I tell myself
And the fever rises high
I think of you and I get whats coming
Sleeping in the devil's bed

I thought of you up there on the ladder
I thought of you when I heard the news
I thought of you when it didn't matter
If I accepted or refused

I warned you when I wanted more
I wanted everything
I wanted what I couldn't give
Sleeping in the devil's bed

I woke up in the steady rain
I woke up when you said
It's late and I'm feeling heavy
Could you hold my aching head

I found myself tangled in wire
I found you there in my dreams
I found you in desire
You had left the devil's bed
