Studio version on the CD The Ways Of The World; live version on Live in Concert

You're that one special woman, I thought I'd never find.
With the strength to be gentle and the courage to be kind.
And though it hasn't all been roses, still I know you understand.
And one of the these nights when we're sharin' a dream,
I'm gonna take you by the hand.

And lay you down on a bed of roses.
In that peaceful shelter only love can provide.
I'll lay you down on a bed of roses,
And then I'll lay me down right by your side.

There's no diamond on your finger, just a simple wedding band.
It seems your knight in shining armor is just an ordinary man.
Though I promised you a kingdom and we don't have all we planned,
One of these nights when we're makin' believe,
I'm gonna take you by the hand.

And lay you down, on a bed of roses.
In that peaceful shelter, only love can provide.
I'll lay you down, on a bed of roses,
And then I'll lay me down, right by your side.

And then I'll lay me down, right by your side.
