Amanda Palmer And The Grand Theft OrchestraThe Bed Song

Exhibit a We are friends in a Sleeping bag Splitting the heat We have one Filthy pillow to share And your lips are in my hair Someone upstairs has a rat That we laughed at And people are drinking And singing Van Halen and Slayer On a ukulele tear Exhibit b Well we found an apartment It's not much to look at a Futon on a floor Torn off desktop for a door All the decor's Made of milk crates And duct tape And if we have sex They can hear us Through the floor But we don't do that anymore And I lay there wondering What is the matter Is this a matter Of worse or of better You took the blanket So I took the bed sheet But I would have held you If you'd only Let me Exhibit c Look how quaint And how quiet and private Our paychecks have bought Us a condo in town It's the nicest flat around You picked a mattress And had it delivered And I walked upstairs And the sight of it Made my heart pound And I wrapped my arms Around me And I stood there wondering What is the matter Is this a matter Of worse or of better? You walked right past me And straightened the covers But I would still love you If you wanted a lover And you said All the money in the world Won't buy a bed So big and wide To guarantee that you won't Accidentally touch me In the night Exhibit d Now we're both Mostly paralyzed Don't know how long we've Been lying here in fear Too afraid to even feel I find my glasses And you turn the light out Roll off on your side like you've Rolled away for years Holding back those King-size tears And I still don't ask you What is the matter Is this a matter Of worse or of better You take the heart failure I'll take the cancer I've long stopped wondering Why you don't answer Exhibit e You can certainly see How fulfilling a life From the cost and size of stone Of our final resting home We got some nice ones right Under a cherry tree You and me lying The only way we know Side by side and still and cold And I finally ask you What was the matter Was it a matter Of worse or of better You stretch your arms out And finally face me You say I would have told you If you'd only asked me If you'd only asked me If you'd only asked me
