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

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?

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
