Mellencamp, John - Warmer Place To Sleep Lyrics



Well I've been up to the mountain
Seen the ashes down below
I had breakfast with the wise man
He told me what he thought I should know
And I've been to bed with Jezebel
And I found the well was deep
And I'd trade in my ambitions
For a warmer place to sleep

Well I've seen the heart of darkness
Read the writing on the wall
And the voice out in the desert
Was the voice out in the hall
And once he called me Abel
And once he called me Cain
And for forty days and forty nights
I slept out in the rain

[Chorus:]
Girl can you share your warm bed tonight
I need to find a safe retreat
Someplace where they can't see my eyes
I need to find a warmer place to sleep

Well I rested in the devil's arms
I've chased the hounds of hell
I played truth or dare with the angels
And as far as I can tell
That a heart of gold ain't no better
Than a heart torn from the street
And I'd trade in my heart of stone
For a warmer place to sleep

[Chorus]

  1. Luke Airow

    This is a damn cool Kickazz tune. Having such a hard day and then putting on a song that takes your mood from bad to incredible, simply because of the energy of the music, then sitting back and holding reverence for the power that is Music.

  2. James Whitney

    Agree with Mr. Steele's comment - this is a rocking' piece but got relatively no notice. Playing it loud now tho'....

    It'll always be my favorite LP by him. And I really hated him when 'American Fool' came out. But this LP won me over.
