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  Lay Your Hands On Me - 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

That’s What the Water Made Me – Bon Jovi

Baby, baby, baby
There’s no use in trying to save me
There’s devils in heaven
There’s angels in hell
So, blow me one last kiss
And wish me well, well

Love is like fingerprints
They don’t wash away.
I left mine all over you.
I take the blame.

Ask me how
Ask me what
Ask me why, baby

That’s what the water made me
That’s who I am and what I’ll be
That’s what the water, that’s what the water made me
There ain’t no doubt about it
It makes you or brings to your knees
That’s what the water, that’s what the water made me

This world is cracked and crazy.
Say one of your pretty prayers for me.
No rose in the garden
Or wish in the well.

I don’t know how
Don’t know what
Don’t know why, baby

That’s what the water made me
That’s who I am and what I’ll be
That’s what the water, that’s what the water made me
There ain’t no doubt about it
It makes you or brings to your knees
That’s what the water, that’s what the water made me
That’s what the water, that’s what the water…

Ask me how,
Ask me what,
Ask me why…

Baby, baby, baby
There’s no use in trying to save me
There’s devils in heaven
There’s angels in hell

(Hold me close, hold me close, hold me)

That’s what the water made me
That’s who I am and what I’ll be
That’s what the water, that’s what the water made me
There ain’t no doubt about it
It makes you or brings to your knees
That’s what the water, that’s what the water…

Why Aren’t You Dead? – Bon Jovi

I got the letter you left under my door
It knocked me on my ass to the floor
Never knew two words could take such a bite
It said, “Dear Jon, hello, goodbye”

I saw your car parked outside Motel Cascade
Saw two shadows go to town on the shade
I can’t believe my own lyin’ eyes, oh my
It better be your girlfriend I saw goin’ down some other guy

You told me you loved me, ’til death do us part
So tell me there’s a tombstone where there used to be a heart

You said you couldn’t live without me so why aren’t you dead?
Instead of six feet under you’re in someone else’s bed
There’s just one thing that I can’t get through my head
You said you couldn’t live without me so why aren’t you dead?

I cut your face out of our old photographs
And all the junk you left behind’s in the trash
Well, I thought you were a goner for sure
Well, there’s been a resurrection, yeah, a miracle cure

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If you can’t trust the livin’ baby who can you trust?

You said you couldn’t live without me so why aren’t you dead?
Instead of six feet under you’re in someone else’s bed
Just one thing that I can’t get through my head
You said you couldn’t live without me so why aren’t you dead?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If you can’t trust the livin’, baby who can you trust?

Couldn’t live without me so why aren’t you dead?
Instead of six feet under you’re in someone else’s bed
There’s just one thing that I can’t get through my head
You said you couldn’t live without me baby, so why aren’t you dead?

READ  Hook Me Up - Bon Jovi

You said you couldn’t live with out me, what a surprise
Instead of layin’ you out I’m layin’ down on the line
You spend my hard-earned money, you left me in the red
You said you couldn’t live without me so why aren’t you dead?
So why aren’t you dead? Why aren’t you dead?

Social Disease – Bon Jovi

You can read it in the papers
In some places it comes in thirty-two flavors
But you wouldn’t tell no one
Your favorite if you could

From the White House to the alleys
From the President down to Long Tall Sally
Can’t live with it but
You’ll die without it – yes you would

Senorita’s in the kitchen
She’s a fistful of dynamite
You call 911 but you
Can’t stop the fun tonite, it’s alright

[Chorus:]
You can’t start a fire without a spark
But there’s something that I guarantee
You can’t hide when infection starts
Because love is a social disease

Where you look you can find it
Try to run but you’re always behind it
So you play hide and seek like a blind kid
Till you’re caught – yeah you’re caught

So you’ll say that you had some
But they took it and held it for ransom
Were they tall, dark, skinny or
Handsome – you won’t talk

So you telephone your doctor
Just to see what pill to take
You know there’s no prescription
Gonna wipe this one away

[Chorus]

So full of high grade octane
She could run the bullet train on 38 double d’s
Now you know for sure, you know the cure
To make a blind man see
