Letter to a Friend – Bon Jovi

I’ll be there to hold you by the hand
When you need someone to walk you home
You know that I’ll be there to understand
When you call me on the phone

And I’ll be there to watch you when you sleep
When you close your eyes at night
And I’ll be there to keep your secrets kept
Cross my heart, hope to die, I swear each word is true
There’s only one thing I wouldn’t do

I’ll be there when you need a real friend
I’ll be there to listen to your secrets
I’ll be there and give you all I’ve got
I’ll be there when you paint your masterpiece

And I’ll be right beside your every move
I’ll give you my eyes so you can see
And I’ll help you to find the things you’ve lost
When you’re busting at the seams

I swear each word is true
There’s only one thing I wouldn’t do
I ain’t gonna love you
I ain’t gonna love you

Nobody wants you like I want you
Nobody needs you like I need you
You know I would beg and plead, get down on the knees
I’d do most anything it’s true but I ain’t gonna love you, I ain’t gonna love you

Because I love you

I’ll be there to love the things you love
I’ll be the one who knows your middle name
Be the only one that you can trust
I’ll give you the blood that’s in my veins

I swear these words are true
There’s only one thing I wouldn’t do
I ain’t gonna love you

READ  Staring At Your Window - Bon Jovi

‘Cause nobody wants you like I want you
Nobody needs you like I need you
You know I would beg and plead, get down on my knees
Do most anything for you, but I ain’t gonna love you, I ain’t gonna love you

Because I love you
Because I love you

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  The Hardest Part Is The Night - 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
