un letto di rose

un pezzo del 1993, una delle prime canzoni a rivelare il nuovo sound più maturo intrapreso dai Bon Jovi dopo aver ottenuto successo come band pop metal negli anni ottanta. Jon Bon Jovi compose il brano al pianoforte in una camera d’albergo a Los Angeles. Il testo espone molti dei problemi che il cantante stava affrontando ai tempi. Il primo verso riflette ciò che Jon provava mentre stava tentando di scrivere questa canzone; era in stato di ubriachezza dalla sera prima ma aveva un pianoforte in camera ed era determinato a comporre qualcosa.

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 blonde gave me nightmares
I 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
Its own beat in my head
While we’re talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and the truth and 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 sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on a bed of roses

Well I’m so far away
That each step that I take is on my way home
A king’s ransom in dimes I’d given each night
Just to see through this payphone
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 and whisper
Baby blind love is true

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the 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
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 sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down
I wanna lay you down on a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down
On a bed of roses

      1. Quello non mi è capitato, ma scrivere rispsote per poi vedersele depennate è brutto 😦

        Comunque ti avviso: domani poesia time, così lo sai già 😀
