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
I found the well was deep
And I'd trade in my ambitions
For a warmer place to sleep

There, I'd trade in my ambitions
For a warmer place to sleep
Kick it in one time, yeah

Well, I've seen the heart of darkness
Read the writing on the wall
And the voice out in the desert
Was the voice I heard 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

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

I need to find a warmer place to sleep
I need to find a warmer place to sleep

Well, I've 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 streets
And I'd trade in my heart of stone
For a warmer place to sleep

There I'd trade in my heart of stone
For a warmer place to sleep

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

I need to find a warmer place to sleep
I need to find a warmer place to sleep
I need to find a warmer place to sleep
I need to find a warmer place to sleep
I need to find a warmer place to sleep
I need to find a warmer place to sleep
