lyrics

Sleep at last despite the din
through the window overhead
from an unfamiliar street.
What wonderful strange linen
with a hint of unknown smoke.
Asleep in a bed different
than the one you woke in.
Sleep in a bed different
than the one you woke in.

Strangeness is its own reward.
Exchange the walls you’ve known,
for the feeling in the neck
when you fail at first to recognize
the person who just spoke
asleep in the bed different than
the one you woke in.
Sleep in a bed different than
the one you woke in.

Satisfy your need for shelter
and adventure at one stroke;
sleep in a bed different than
the one you woke in.

Never mind if it’s of roses
or of nails or solid oak,
sleep in a bed different than
the one you woke in.

When your old bedroom feels like prison
and your headboard like a yoke;
the feel of your springs like knives
and your sheets like sand;
when the water left
on the nightstand
tastes like so much nothing,
sleep in a bed different than
the one you woke in.
Sleep in a bed different than
the one you woke in.
