lyrics

She took him into her Murphy bed
One by one his dreams were shed
Everyday a hope was left unsaid
Shut the lid
And keep it hid
Lest anything go wrong

There he lingered in her Murphy bed
Basking in her sense of dread
With each fateful omen duly read
Then locked away
So she could say
She knew it all along

And in her life was always room for doubt
An inner life she couldn’t do without
To spread her disappointment all about
The eggshell path he would tread
To share her Murphy bed

Soon he’s living under Murphy's law
Good news chafes and good times gnaw
They teeter on a neither-nor seesaw
Believe a lie
The evil eye
That dooms both weak and strong

How fortune’s cookie crumbles, who’s to say
Just what this Murphy world will next betray?
What idle hope could take it all away?
That old, cold comforter spread
Upon her murphy bed

He doesn’t want to be her Murphy man
Just finding can’t in anything he can
And leaving only would confirm her plan
Alas, their fates have been wed
He’s locked inside
His last place to hide
In her Murphy bed
