lyrics

"My Own Bed"
by Anthony da Costa (C) 2012

i don't want my own bed
i want you to sleep next to instead
it's been so long, and a dream of mine
but it's a bad, bad time
yes it's a bad, bad time

flip flops on my feet
it's so strange not living in the east
here's the coast where you were born
here's me, love lorn
here's me, love

CHORUS:
Gift shop postcard
party down hard
kick it with some friends, feel alright
late night sleepwalk
drink more, less talk
the moon is low enough to pick a fight
but at least i have my own bed tonight

how's he? afraid to ask.
as for me, i'm going nowhere fast
on a rock by the dock
a ticking clock

CHORUS

on a ferry boat, in a denim coat
to the nearest bar, take the rental car
the laundromat, your neighbor's cat
a baseball bat to my chest
and all the rest

well the phone will never do
how are you? how are you?
i don't want my own bed.
