1. Separate Beds

From the recording Separate Beds


 Separate Beds
Tonight I take her from her parents I came along to her rescue Without a word about arrangements She came along without a clue So I said my love I want to take you A place I have inside my head And so it seemed I had to love you With some cards and separate beds Her mother didn't like me She thought I was on drugs My mother didn't like her She'd never peel the spuds So we took off together And stayed at Mrs. Smith's Breakfast at half seven Where you can view the cliffs The moon was full and in our window I could see her turning in her bed I was loved but all in limbo There was time to pass but not to spend Soon I saw that this was silly Spending all my wages on this peach When we could sit so very pretty And get our heads down out on the beach Her father seemed to like me I helped him fix his car My father seemed to like her And I couldn't see the harm In going off together To see the pier and lights So we could be together In separate beds tonight
