My longtime friend and songwriting collaborator asked me to put lyrics to some music he'd written. It took a great deal of time to get them to say what I wanted them to, I thought to hear them sung might be cathartic and it was. However it was not as healing as I'd hoped it would be. Maybe it will be helpful to others:

Bed of Roses Lyrics by Me

Vs. 1 Drinking with demons every night
Dimming my chances to see the light.
Searching forever to find some peace of mind.

Ch. Where's my bed of roses?
Where's my wine?
Will I find salvation in my time?
The fault wasn't mine.

Vs. 2 It wasn't for you to decide
that I was done being a child.
Your deception delivered my spiraling decline.

Ch. Where's my bed of roses?
Where's my wine?
Will I find salvation in my time?
The fault wasn't mine.

Where's my bed of roses?
Where's my wine?
Looking for salvation through the eyes of a child
no longer blind.
Wasted so much time…

Vs. 3 Don't want to remember, but I can't forget
cleansing the shame, the pain, the stains of regret
Your moment of pleasure has dirtied my whole life.

Ch. Where's my bed of roses?
Where's my wine?
Will I find salvation in my time?
The fault wasn't mine.

Where's my bed of roses?
Where's my wine?
Will I find salvation down the line?
The fault wasn't mine.
