"Lying In The Bed I've Made" as written by and David W Terry....
I've been a father to you all
In spite of what you've heard
and for the most part,
I've been a perfect stranger too
In spite of wat you've heard
You've made me painfull aware
Of what you think of me
And for the most part,
O'm starting to believe it true
I put my faith in you

Sorry songs I sing
To amuse myself
I need to hear your voice
Carry all my weight

I've been a lover to the ones
You'd never realize
And for the most part,
I've been a liar all my life
In spite of what you've heard
a centimeter of a man
I measure up to be
And for the most part,
I might be lonely all my life
I'm lying in the bed I've made

Sorry songs I sing
To amuse myself
I need to hear your voice
Carry all my weight
I hope it's not too late,
You're making a mistake

    General CommentThe first few times I heard this song I subconsciously assumed that it was about "LAYING in the bed I've made." But it clearly is about "LYING in the bed I've made" ... "I've been a liar all my life."

    A very clever pun.

    General CommentAre you serious? No one "lays" in bed (unless you're talking about doing it to another person); people lie in bed. Yes, it's a clever pun on lying as in the intransitive verb to be on one's back as well as to deceive someone else.

    General CommentLove the first couple of lines, I mean, "I've been a father to you all in spite of what you heard, and for the most part, I've been a perfect stranger, too."
