On a dead-end street
In a dead-end town
There's a motel that I call home
Just a few small hopes
And a few small dreams
Are all that place is resting on
Desiree loves two doors down
She's been there for way too long
I hope she hears this song
Sometime when she's feelin' down
Not beneath some motel light
On a bed of roses
She deserves to sleep tonight
On a bed of roses
She deserves to sleep tonight
She don't talk on the phone too much
I can hear her walkin' down the hall
She comes home late every night
When she does I hear it through my wall
At least not many good ones
Desiree don't have many friends
But least I'm someone to lean on
I may be just an ordinary man
On a bed of roses
She deserves to sleep tonight
Not beneath some motel light
She deserves to sleep tonight
On a bed of roses
Tonight, tonight, tonight,
On a bed Light
On a bed Tonight
On a bed Roses
She deserves to sleep tonight
