"Bed Of Nails" as written by Desmond Child, Diane Eve Warren and Alice Cooper....
Yeah!!!

Yeah we're gonna fight
We do it every night
Baby when you scratch
You know I'm gonna bite

You can make me die
I can make you cry
Opposites attract
That's the reason why

[Chorus]
No one else could make you feel like I do, I do, I do
No one ever gets as deep inside you, as I do baby
Our love is a bed of nails
Love hurts good on a bed of nails
I'll lay you down and when all else fails
I'll drive you like a hammer on a bed of nails.

First we're gonna kiss
Then we're gonna say
Dirty little words
Only lovers say

Rocking through the night
Rolling on the floor
When they hear you screaming
They'll be breaking down the door

[Chorus]

Bed of nails
Bed of nails
I'll drive you like a hammer on a bed of nail
Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow
Gonna drive you like a hammer
Gonna put in my slammer
Oh yeah!

[Chorus]

Our love is a bed of mail
Love hurts good on a bed of nails
I'll lay you down and when all else fails
I'll drive you like a hammer on a bed of nails

Our love is a bed of mail
Love hurts good on a bed of nails
I'll lay you down and when all else fails
I'll drive you like a hammer on a bed of nails

    General CommentSorry guys I just listened to the Children of Bodom version and it is trash! And I'm not just saying that cos I'm a die hard Alice Cooper fan, he doesn't put any emotion into it, Alexi makes it sound more violent than dirty which is what it should be.

    General CommentThis song pretty much has two meanings, but they blend together.

    I think there can be no disputing the sexual references here. This song very easily and in its entirety can be taken as a reference to hardcore, possibly kinky sex.

    However, there's a slightly deeper meaning. Some, not all, of Alice's work around this timeframe did have a deeper meaning, and in this case it's love and the pains of a relationship. For example, "put me in your slammer" could reference both entering a woman sexually as well as succumbing to a particular demand or compromise in a relationship.

    Besides these two generally interconnected interpretations, I don't see any other real possibilities. Yes, song interpretation is the responsibility of the listener, but in some cases (such as this one) there aren't many open ends.
