"Apple Bed" as written by and Mark Linkous....
Of horses wet
With melted ice
They would not heed
My advice
And burdened limbs
Of it's weight
To break and rot
A whispered fate

Please
Doctor, please

A remedy
In a bloody sea
To breach the hive
And smoke the bees
You can be my friend
You can be my dog
You can be my light
You can be my fog

Please
Doctor, please

The witches will return to their sticky tree knots
I will feel the sun
I will feel the sun
I will feel the sun coming down

I wish I had
A horse's head
A tiger's heart
An apple bed

    General Commentthey truly have their own style.

    apple bed is so sad. who HASN'T felt this way before? Wishing they were better ("a horse's head, a tiger's heart"), hoping to be taken away from life's problems and finally "feel the sun coming down"

    summation: wonderful

    General CommentI have much love for this song, It puts you in a mood you can't describe but it's good by far and Sparklehorse is a very unique band that is hard to come around.
