Bed of stone

The night the sandman failed to call

He didn't leave a card at all

I tried to sleep but sleep proved hard

The night I nursed a broken heart


The night was long the dark air cold

The bed no more than Hell on hold

The temperature - high disbelief

The night I learned love lied to me


Midnight phantoms filled my head

They spun their tales of jealous dread

A haunting whisper in my ear

A shadow pointed - falsehood is near


Tonight your love has been undone

The wasted years where have they gone?

From warm heart in a loving breast

A bed of stone is all that's left
