​Bed Of Roses

This song is by The Oak Ridge Boys and appears on the album American Dreams (1989).

You're that one special woman
I'd thought I'd never find
With a strength to be gentle
And the courage to be kind.
Though it hasn't all been roses
I know you'll understand
One of these nights when we're sharing our dreams
I'm gonna take you by the hand.

And lay you down on a bed of roses
In that peaceful shelter only love can provide.
I'll lay you down on a bed of roses
And then I'll lay me down right by your side.

There's no diamond on your finger
Just a simple wedding band
Seems your knight in shining armour
Is just an ordinary man.
Though I promised you a kingdom
And we don't have all we planned
One of these nights when we're making believe
I'm gonna take you by the hand.

And lay you down on a bed of roses
In that peaceful shelter only love can provide.
I'll lay you down on a bed of roses
And then I'll lay me down right by your side.
And then I'll lay me down right by your side.
