	(VERSE: figure 1b is played over D-G chords during verses)
	    D                 G
	the bed at night is a liferaft
               D             G
	in the ocean of the dark
          D              G
	i hang my hands over the sides
            D                  G
	and pray that god knows why
         C                 G
	drifting somewhere in the black
         F                        G
	feeling (low?) 'neath the blanket
                C             G
	and the weight of the mattress
            F               G
	the mistress of the sheets


	(BRIDGE: play following chord progression using
	 bridge chord shapes shown above:
	 Bb-F-C-Eb-Bb-F-Bb-F-C-Eb-Bb-F
	 Second guitar plays figure two (shown above) over chords)

           Bb              F                C
	on many successive nights i've been miserable
          Eb                 Bb         F
	give one (sense?) to sense the invisible
          F
	i know you're in this room

	being (? ? ?)


	(SOLO: play figure three over repeated chord
	 progression Dm-G...)


	(VERSE)
	    D                 G
	the bed at night is a lifeboat
                 D                  G
	a throne off which you can (?) from
                  D                   G
	i hang my hands and feet over the sides
            D                             G        D
	and pray to the space of what can never be known
