"Murphy Bed" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn....
How's the road?
Are you getting lots of action out there?
I hope so

I'm at home
Distracting myself with the guitar
And microphones

And when you get home you can
Tie me to the murphy bed
Let's do all the things you said
Tie me to the murphy bed
Let's just fall asleep instead

This one's for you and that one's for the other
We all have to learn to share with one another
Do you really want to know
Or should i shut my face about it when you get home?

And when you get home you can
Tie me to the murphy bed
Let's do all the things you said
Tie me to the murphy bed
Or let's just fall asleep instead

    General Commenti love this song!!!
    its pretty kinky...but Mirah seems to be really good at making her lyrics elegant and yet, all about hot sex... pretty amazing feat right there.

    this song has a great melody, its kind of sad in a way, but the words don't seem to be.
    although maybe if you looked deeper....
    eh, whatever. im tired.

    great song.

    General CommentThe first stanza introduces to a situation in which one partner in the relationship is gone for extended periods of time, while the other is at home and "distracting herself" (by singing this song).

    The chorus invokes a kinky sex scene, but is softened by the phrase "Or let's just fall asleep instead," which implies that while sex would be great, really the singer is just missing the partner on the road, and would be just as satisfied to fall asleep next to her. Possibly (and this ties into the verse after the first iteration of the chorus) the singer is showing some hesitation for fear of coming off too strongly; she doesn't want to intimidate the partner, and isn't sure how much to say or suggest for fear of offending.

    "This one's for you / That one's for the other / We all have to learn to share with one another / Do you really want to know? / Or should I shut my face about it when you get home?"

    This verse tells us more about the relationship... namely, that it's not monogamous. We hear the singer's uncertainty about whether she should talk to the partner about her relationships with other people. There's a sort of quiet desperation to it.

    Really, there's a sort of quiet desperation to the entire song, which can be summed up as: "I miss you; come home!"
