Bed Of Roses – Bon Jovi

Sitting here wasted and wounded
at this old piano
Trying hard to capture
the moment this morning I don’t know
‘Cause a bottle of vodka
is still lodged in my head
And some blond gave me nightmares
I think she’s still in my bed
As I dream about movies
they won’t make of me when I’m dead

With an ironclad fist I wake up and
French kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps
its own beat in my head
While we’re talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and the truth and
what you mean to me
And the truth is baby you’re all that I need

I want to lay you on a bed of roses
For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

Well I’m so far away
That each step that I take is on my way home
A king’s ransom in dimes I’d given each night
Just to see through this payphone
Still I run out of time
Or it’s hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I’ll just close my eyes and whisper,
baby blind love is true

I want to lay you down on a bed of roses
For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

The hotel bar hangover whiskey’s gone dry
The barkeeper’s wig’s crooked
And she’s giving me the eye
I might have said yeah
But I laughed so hard I think I died

READ  Love's the Only Rule - Bon Jovi

When you close your eyes
Know I’ll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonite I won’t be alone
But you know that don’t
Mean I’m not lonely I’ve got nothing to prove
For it’s you that I’d die to defend

I want to lay you down on a bed of roses
For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

Thorn in My Side – Bon Jovi

Thorn in my side
You’re always there
Just to remind me
That I still care

Thorn in my side
You won’t let me go
Right there beside me
To let me know

I’ve been pushed around
Been knocked down
Lost a round or three
Life took a couple of things I loved
When I was too blind to see

But I’ll survive
I gave up on luck but I’m still getting by
Yeah I’m going to be alright
You can test my faith
But you can’t take my pride
Thorn in my side, thorn in my side, ooooah

Thorn in my side
You just won’t quit
Once in a while when I crack a smile
You rub my face in it
Thorn in my side
You won’t let me run
God bless the fights
That I’ve lost and won

But I’ll survive
I gave up on luck but I’m still getting by
Yeah I’m going to be alright
You can test my faith
But you can’t take my pride
Thorn in my side, thorn in my side, thorn in my side
Thorn in my side, thorn in my side, thorn in my side

I’ve been pushed around
Been knocked down
Lost a round or three
Life took a couple of things I loved
When I was too blind to see

But I’ll survive
I gave up on luck but I’m still getting by
Yeah I’m going to be alright
You can test my faith
But you can’t take my pride
Thorn in my side, thorn in my side, thorn in my side
Thorn in my side, thorn in my side, thorn in my side
Thorn in my side, wooah, wooooahh ohhh
wooah oh oh, woooah oh ohhhh

Diamond Ring – Bon Jovi

Diamond ring, wear it on your hand
It’s gonna tell the world, I’m your only man
Diamond ring, diamond ring
Baby, you’re my everything, diamond ring

Red, red rose brought it home to you
Blood red rose, tells me that you’re true
Red, red rose, blood-red rose
Like a fire inside that grows, blood-red rose

When you’re hungry, I will fill you up
When you’re thristy, drink out of my loving cup
When you’re crying, I’ll be the tears for you
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do for you

When you’re hungry, I will fill you up
When you’re thristy, drink out of my loving cup
When you’re crying, I’ll be the tears for you
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do for you

You know, I bleed every night you sleep
‘Cause I don’t know if I’m in your dreams
I want to be your everything…

Diamond ring, wear it on your hand
It’s gonna tell the world, I’m your only man
Diamond ring, diamond ring
Baby, you’re my everything, diamond ring
Darling, you’re my everything, diamond ring
Now, you’ve got me on your string… Diamond ring

Janie, Don’t You Take Your Love To Town – Bon Jovi

Sitting here just watching you sleep
Wish I could slip inside and be in some technicolor dream
But the air’s too thick for one of us to breathe
I’m not fool enough to think you couldn’t live life without me

I didn’t come this far to throw the towel in
I didn’t fight this hard to walk away
If I ain’t smart enough to say I’m sorry
It’s just because the words got in the way

I remember how it used to be
I was you and you were me
We were more than just the same
Now these shoes don’t fit, my skin’s too tight
When you want a kiss, I take a bite
Let your heart call up the cops, read me my rights
Last night I drank enough to drown
Raise a toast to your good looks and to my health
Look, we both know how much I’ve let you down
Janie, don’t you take your love to town

Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I’ll beg, just don’t walk away
Janie, don’t you take your love to town

You deserve a shooter, a saint
Someone to give it to you straight
To find the soul through flesh and bone
My life’s a treasure, full of sunny weather
But it’s left me feeling cold
Now all you wanna do is take me home
I hated you, the night you said you loved me
I hated you, ’cause I couldn’t love myself
I’m begging you now, baby please just hold me
I got one foot in, one foot off the ground

Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I’ll beg, just don’t walk away
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love …

[Guitar solo]

Sitting here while you’re fast asleep
In the bathroom by the sink
Trying to write the right words down
I turn out the lights, close my eyes
There ain’t no prayers or kiss goodnight
What I’ll forget to say tomorrow, I’ll say now
Janie, don’t you take your love to town

Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I’ll beg, just don’t walk away
Janie, don’t you take your love to town

Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I’ll beg, just don’t walk away
Janie, don’t you take your love to town

Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I’ll beg, just don’t walk away
Janie, don’t you take your love to town
Janie, don’t you take your love
