​Sleep On The Trusty Floor

This song is by The Balancing Act and appears on the album Curtains (1988).

Words and music by Jeff Davis.

Who has been between these sheets
No one that I've known
People that I'll never meet
Slept here once and then moved on

Roll away to sleep
For the night
Behind this motel door
Leave this strange bed undisturbed
Sleep on the trusty floor
Sleep on the trusty floor
Sleep on the trusty floor

A thousand strangers
Have rested here
A thousand in one bed
I'd feel so vulnerable and weird
I'd rather sleep where
Souls have tread

Roll away to sleep
For the night
Behind this motel door
Leave this strange bed undisturbed
Sleep on the trusty floor
Sleep on the trusty floor
Sleep on the trusty floor

All floors are about the same
Every floor has got it's dust
When sleep pulls me
Like an Anchor
The floor is easy to trust
'Cause people lived and died
Beneath these covers
And I feel their presence still
I feel rooted to the ground
And I always will

Some have sunk
Into this mattress
Like a bad dream
Every one of them
Left something behind
I've shared strange beds before
But with people
I could see
Tonight my
Blankets on the floor
And I don't mind
