Hinder - Bed Of Roses Lyrics

[Bon Jovi cover]

Sitting here wasted and wounded
at this old piano
Trying hard to capture
the moment this morning I don't know
'Cause a bottle of vodka
still lodged in my head
And some blonde gave me nightmares
think that she's still in my bed
As I dream about movies
they won't make of me when I'm dead

With an ironclad fist I wake up
and French kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps
its own beat in my head
While we're talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and truth
what you mean to me
And the truth is baby you're all that I need

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

Well I'm so far away
step that I takes on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes give each night
to see through this payphone
Still I run out of time
Or it's hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I just close my eyes and whisper,
baby blind love is true

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on the bed of roses

Well this hotel bar's hangover whiskey's gone dry
The barkeeper's wig's crooked and
She's giving me the eye
Well I might have said yeah
But I laughed so hard I think I died
ooh yeah

Now as you close your eyes
Know I'll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonight won't be alone
To know that don't
Mean I'm not lonely I've got nothing to prove
For it's you that I'd die to defend

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down

I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

  12. Misty Webb

    This is not my favorite Bon Jovi, song but I be damn if this didn't give me chills. Excellent job guys!!

  13. Alpha Female

    Love Austin Winkler's voice. It's definitely rockin' this Bon Jovi song. Perfect cover, but it's not surprising with him singing it. His voice is crazy sexy....

  14. Red Zie

    So Hinder💕Love that You made a cover of this💕

  15. Virginia Paige Love

    This is a pretty cong, but the first thing I though of is that the roses will get stuck on the girl's ass - kinda like fucking on a beach.

  16. James Tillotson

    Yikes. That chorus was too much for his voice

  17. Alpha Female

    Oh damn, Austin nailed this. I'm not a big fan of Hinder since he is no longer with them. He was the voice and face behind Hinder.

    Courtney Burns

    Give them a chance Marshall is doing a great job.


    Yeah I agree hinder isn’t what it used to be. Really wish I had gone to see them when Austin was still lead. Some of their new songs are ok but it’s not Hinder to me.

  18. Cody Bethel

    I swear this is better than the original

  19. Mr. ToasTy

    My ears cryed :'(

  20. Ak 13 Ashok bodo

    Jeff Mccall

    Then you aren't a huge Bon Jovi fan.... c'mon now... nobody beats Jon's voice, especially this song.

  30. CLureCo

    Saw that OG tour way back, I believe warrant opened for em. Man, saw some great shows back then

  31. Angelique Llena

    Aside from Austin Winkler, I think Miles Kennedy of Alter Bridge will do this justice

  32. krisnotes1979

    Wow. Badass cover

  33. Lasi Moe

    I can't compare. ..everyone is unique in their own way. ...

  34. Chloe Williams

  36. Binodmoni Singha

    For all who have disliked it ....bitches

  37. Gary Rome

    Oh how I miss the sweet kiss of your lips. To forever to be pressed onto mine only in memory now. My dreams of you are nothing more then faded into shadows. Your voice still echoes deep within the dwelling of my mind. Oh how forever lay down next to yester years ghost of you. An absence shadow that once was

  38. theLoOK Channel

    Paulo Ricardo's voice from Brazil? 😅

  39. Carolann Starr

    Amazingly sung!!! <3 <3 <3

  40. John Luke

    it's still so hard to listen to this... not because of the singer or any of that... just because... it once meant nothing to me... now this song is all I have to remind me... of this girl... now I know she's sleeping on a bed of roses... while I sleep alone... on a bed of nails...

  41. Jimmy Edowski

  68. Conrad Wright

    love the original but got to admit this is one hell of a version.. suits his voice down to a T

  69. Baba Loo70

    you can hear a bit of bob seger in his voice . (nice)


    +Baba Loo70 Hmm. I'm definitely a big Seger fan, but I personally dont hear it.


    When he hits his higher raspy notes I can totally hear it. Was literally just wondering what about his voice I found so familiar

  70. Baba Loo70

    you can hear a bit of bob seger in his voice . (nice)


    bon jovi sang that song

    HardLukWoman !!

    +gameing guy 2002 xbox derrr

  72. Jorge Jahch


  73. Werner Poeschl

    I'm really wondering why people in 2015 still ask on what album of Hinder this song was released. I'm wondering whether or not these people have ever heard of Google and how to use it.

  74. Jason Gib

    omg someone who can sing it better than Jon bon Jovi jeepers

  75. Katey Easlick

    love this song with him singing it

    wow!!!!!!!   i hope he wel do that to aerosmith song i dont want to miss a thing.,.,,.

  82. coco & cats


    I’m your mythical Dream of potatoes

    I love your songs a lot

  83. Dante de Souza

    Kiara Rocks's vocalist.

  84. John Robertson

    We can say that the 80s Jon Bon Jovi can only hit this but hey. Jon himself is having troubles performing this song on live even when he's young, this was just one heck of a song so i don't blame Hinder for having troubles singing this song. 

    Werner Poeschl

    +Courièr Rob Where do you hear Austin Winkler having troubles singing this song? He sings the song his own way he doesn't try to imitate Bon Jovi's version note by note. That's, in my humble opinion, what makes a cover a great cover. Austin owns the song in his version, singing it the same way like Jon Bon Jovi does would make it a pointless cover.... But as said before, that's only my opinion.

    Alice De Fleurvilleunangeblond

    +Courièr Rob Jon troubles with this song???????????? Surely not and Hinder just create a great cover . I don t see any troubles but musical great art!!!!!!

  85. Sean Eggers

    What album was this from?

    Cody Bethel

    Sean Eggers I believe extreme behavior

  86. Airborne R75

    his voice is shit compared to Jon...Sounds like he is gargling balls. And its outta tune. hes screaming. It sucks


    It's your opinion. But I love his voice.


    I like his voice as well, just not for this song choice.

    cicit milano

    Well it's not fair to compare his voice with Jon. Hinder has his own style.

    Airborne R75

    @cicit milano I made that comment on a bad day, I think? I stand by it, but maybe I was a lil harsh? Idk ;)

    Willy Fisterbottom

    Its from all of his drug use, man.

  87. Mike Bergevin

    i am a child of the 80s and 90s damn this does bon jovi justice

  88. Sabrina Spellman

    ;) love it

  89. tiffany zellner

    I love this song!
