"Bed of Coals" as written by Warren Zevon and T-bone Burnett....
I've been lying on a bed of coals
I've been crying out of control
I roll and I tumble
Every time I come down

I'm too old to die young
And too young to die now
I've been sleeping on a bed of nails
I've been bleeding, it never fails

I feel every needle
That pierced through my heart

[Chorus:]
I'm too old to die young
And I can't play the part
Bed of coals
Bed of nails
Through the smoke
Behind the veils
Bed of coals
Bed of nails
Through the smoke
Behind the veils

I've been lying in a bed of shame
I've been dying all alone
I pray for the power
To turn it around

[Chorus]
