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

You Really Got Me Now – Bon Jovi

1, 2, 3, 4
Well you’re dancing with the shadow
You been talking in your sleep
Well you can walk on water
But don’t want to wet your feet

You really got me, you really got me now
You know I don’t know how you do it
But you really put me through it
You got me, yeah

You say you talk to everyone
Who is anyone in town
But they don’t recognize you
With your feet out of your mouth

You really got me, you really got me now, yeah
You know I don’t know how you do it
But you really drive me through it
You got me

Who am I to judge a man who says that’s he’s his own biggest fan
It’s true / Richard…

[Piano solo]

You brought a knife out to a gunfight
And you’re shouting that I’m dead
My old friends Smith and Wesson
Think you’re in over your head

You really got me, you really got me now
You know I don’t know how you do it
But you really drive me through it
You got me now

You really got me, you really got me now
You burn your bridges baby
You know I don’t know how you do it
But you really put me through it
You got me, yeah

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

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  I'm Your Man - 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
