For you I’d try to make it rain in the desert.
I’d ask the mountains to kneel down, pick you up
And give you the perfect rose in the middle of winter.
I'd ask the angels to sing to you, from up above.

I just can't get out, I can't get out, can't get out of bed.
If I could I surely would do everything that I said.
I, I can't get out... of bed.

For you I'd end all forms of war, confrontation.
I'd bridge the gap between the poor and the millionaires.
I'd declare your eyes another constellation.
I'd find the gold mines in every strand of your hair.

I just can't get out, I can't get out, I can't get out of bed.
If I could I surely would do everything that I said.
I, I can't get out... of bed.

Don't call me a liar, don't say I'm a fraud,
I thought all that really counts it was the thought, the thought.

For you I'd crush coal in my hands, to give you jewels.
I'd consider life a game and I'd let you make up the rules.
I'd start a new religion based on your silhouette.
I'd have the clouds spell out your name in every alphabet.

I just... can't get out, I can't get out, I can't get out of bed.
If I could I surely would do everything that I said.
I, I can't get out...
Oh I, I can't get out... of bed.

    General CommentCried the first time I heard this track.

    Getting the feeling that it's about his obvious love and undying devotion to someone, but being unable to obtain what he wants to achieve in the relationship, failing to keep promises etc. thus making him fall into a depression of sorts.

    Sometimes, What's in the heart isn't enough.

    General Commentyou know.....upon review of my previous comment......I've decided the song isn't depressing at all.

    He says he could and would do so much for her, but he is just so in love with her, that he would just much rather stay in bed with her and be in her presence. Because fulfilling all of his promises would mean that he would have to be away from her.

    And you know, if you've been fortunate to find that one love of your life like I have, the best place to be, at all times, is the bed. for conversation, for the connection, for the touching, for the smells, for the purity of what love really is.

    There you go. My reinterpretation of what this song is about.

    General CommentI felt the same as the first commentator, and I think that is why I was so drawn to the song. But then I heard the lovers voice in the bridge, as if she was egging him on, calling him a fraud in a loving and teasing voice. "It's the thought that counts" he says, and I can hear a smile in his voice.

    So then I thought the same as the second commentator. I like the song because it is cryptic that way.
