"Bed Of Roses" as written by and Bonnie Hayes....
Long, long ago, where the tall grass grows
And the still air is sweet with summer flowers;
In the shade by the stream I would lie awake and dream,
And in dreaming I would while away the hours

Long, long gone yesterday,
And the castle and the prince and the God to whom I prayed
Well, I made, and I'm gonna lie in this bed of roses
I'm tired of trying to be free
Gonna lay down like a sigh in my bed of roses
Bed of roses I believed my life would be

Well, I wasted years,
All the useless, bitter tears
If I'd known I'd have stopped it at the start
I knew life was long,
And I knew life could go wrong,
But I never knew my life would break my heart

Dreams die harder than pride
I have learned my lesson well
I will put them both aside
'cause I made and I'm gonna lie in this bed of roses
I'm tired and I'm dying to be free
Gonna lay down like a sigh in my bed of roses
Bed of roses I believed my life would be

Roses die, and all the fairy tales are lies,
And I guess that's just too bad for poor old me
'cause I made, and I'm gonna lie in my bed of roses
Bed of roses I believed my life would be
Bed of roses I believed my life would be
