Bed of Roses” is a rock song released by Bon Jovi in November 1992, taken from the album Keep the Faith. The song’s power ballad style made it a worldwide hit, and it demonstrated the band’s new, more mature sound after their success as a glam metal band in the 80’s.

Released as a successful single in 1992, it reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, #13 in the UK Top 40 and #10 in the German Top 100.

According to the Bed Of Roses Songfacts, Jon Bon Jovi claimed he wrote the song in a hotel room while suffering from a hangover, and the song reflects his feelings at the time. The song contains drawn out guitar riffs and soft piano playing, combined with emotive and powerful vocals by Jon to create a power ballad love song.The line”as I dream about movies they won’t make of me when I am dead” is indicative of the central theme of rugged existence.
