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

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
