​Sleeping in the Devil's Bed

This song is by Daniel Lanois and appears…

I thought of you in blue and red
I thought of you when you were playing
I thought of you in my bed
You were there bound and chained

I thought of you there next to me
Wearing your pretty face
I thought of everything that you could be
Sleeping in the devil's bed

I looked for you when the lights were low
Snd I paid for what I had
I looked for you way down below
Till I felt I was going mad

I think of you when I tell myself
And the fever rises high
I think of you and I get what's coming
Sleeping in the devil's bed

Oh why, why, why, why, baby, why?
Oh why, why, why, why, why, why, baby, why?

I thought of you up there on the ladder
I thought of you when I heard the news
I thought of you and it didn't matter
If I accepted you'll refuse

I wanted you and I wanted more
I wanted everything
I wanted what I couldn't get
Sleeping in the devil's bed
In the devil's bed

I woke up in the steady rain
I woke up when you said
It's late and I'm feeling heavy
Could you hold my aching head?

I found myself tangled in wire
I found you there in my dream
I found you in desire
You had left the devil's bed
You had left the devil's bed
Oh, baby, why?
You had left the devil's bed
