Oooh, when I was bed
Before she spread lilacs on the sheets

Perfumed his hair with white powders
Removed the bitter taste left on his cheek
Perfumed his hair with white powders
Removed the bitter taste left on his cheek

Oooh, I was bed
Before she spread lilacs on the sheets

The antiquity of that one moment
How filthy his shoes had been
And how soon we forget the smell of survival
Blanket it with roses and sick tears

Oooh, I was bed
Before she spread lilacs on the sheets

Oooh, when I was bed
When I was bed

    General CommentNope.
    The song is called When I Was Bed.
    The song mentions sheets. Sheets are on beds.
    I think it's about a dead guy laying on a bed and a woman cleaning him up and making him smell nice again.
    I'm probably wrong but that's what I picture when I read the lyrics and hear the song.

    General Commenti think it's just about getting done in the butt, honestly.
