RUNAWAY
J. Bon Jovi, G. Karak

On the street where you live girls talk about their social lives
They're made of lipstick, plastic and paint, a touch of sable in their eyes

All your life all you've asked when's your Daddy gonna talk to you

You were living in another world tryin' to get your message through.

No one heard a single word you said.
They should have seen it in your eyes

What was going around your heart.

Chorus:
Ooh, she's a little runaway.

Daddy's girl learned fast

All those things he couldn't say.

Ooh, she's a little runaway.

A different line every night guaranteed to blow your mind
See you out on the streets, call me for a wild time

So you sit home alone 'cause there's nothing left that you can do

There's only pictures hung in the shadows left there to look at you

You know she likes the lights at nights on the neon Broadway signs
She don't really mind, it's only love she hoped to find

Repeat chorus

No one heard a single word she said
They should have seen it in your eyes

What was going around your heart

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast

All those things he couldn't say

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast

Now she was the night away

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast

All those things he couldn't say

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast

Now she was the night away


 

ROULETTE
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

Bet the black comes in red, crimes of passion rule my head
I need you, you want him, dressed to kill we live in sin

I know the game you play, I know it well
You just keep on playin' when all the bets are down

Chorus:
Roulette you're goin' round in a spin,

Caught up in a game you just can't win

Roulette, you're just a fantasy

It's everything that you want it to be

Play the numbers one by one, fire the shot and the damage is done
Restless lovers pay the price, cheating hearts don't think twice

When you make the rules no one can slow you down
You just keep 'em waiting when you're on the prowl

Repeat chorus x 2

Backdoor runner got away this time
Leaves her mark at the scene of the crime

Nothing matters, no faces, no names

You're just a number, it's all the same

You just love to play the game

I know the game you play, I know it well
You just keep on playin' when all the bets are down

Repeat chorus x 2


 

SHE DON'T KNOW ME
M. Avsec

What more can I do, there's nothing I haven't tried
Still it's so hard for her to notice

I've tried hard to be straight

There's nothing left I can say

If only she would look my way

Chorus:
She don't know me, she don't know

She don't see me, she don't care

She can't hear me, can't hear

Can not help me, she don't want

She don't want me like I want her

Like I wan't her got to tell her

Got to tell her that I love her

That I love her

She doesn't even know my name

I dream of when she'll be mine
I dream of crossing that line

And holding her so tender

Dreaming it could come true

So many things I would do

If only you'd give me a chance

Repeat chorus


 

SHOT THROUGH THE HEART
J. Bon Jovi, J. Ponti

Would you be content to see me crying
After all those little games you put me through

After all I've done for you you're lying

Wouldn't it be nice to tell the truth

Didn't somebody somewhere say
You're gonna take a fall

I gave you everything

Now here's the curtain call

Chorus:
Shot through the heart as I lay there alone

In the dark through the heart

It's all part of this game that we call love

Now you've come back here to say you're sorry
But I don't know who you're talking to

It could be the man I used to be, girl

But I've grown up and now I'm over you

Standing there just a live wire
With nowhere left to turn

You were gonna set the world on fire

When will you ever learn?

Chorus

Didn't somebody somewhere say
You're gonna take a fall

I gave you everything

Now here's the curtain call

And I'm shot...

Baby does what baby please
And baby must have what she sees

But not this time, the tables turned

Baby, you just got burned

Chorus


 

LOVE LIES
J. Bon Jovi, D. Bryan

I was lost, then I found you
Never thought it would be this way

I showed you my heart,  left it unguarded

Like a thief in the night you stole it away

Now you're gone, the pain goes on and on
I still hear you whispering to me through the shadows of the night

Chorus:
Love lies, you're just a victim of the headlines

You're running on into a cold night

You're just a number of the love lies

All alone you call it survival
He lost at love to a stranger's lines

Walking the streets, searching with vengeance

For a face that he dreams of night after night

Time goes on, all signs of life stolen, simple dreams were all broken
Best of times become desperation but how many tears must you cry to survive

Chorus

They met late one night in the city
Both men knew only one would stay

Scratched a picture of a heart on a bullet

And took his life away

Chorus


 

BREAKOUT
J. Bon Jovi, D. Bryan

This time girl I've had enough
You're too hot to handle with kid gloves

It's too late I hear a knock on the door

The game's over baby I can't take it no more

Chorus:
Breakout, Breakout

Take these chains from me

You held my heart for ransom

Baby, set it free

Breakout, Breakout

Your lies can't hide what I see

I'm better off on my own

Promises made me in the heat of the night (Whoa-oh-oh)
Those words were broken under bedroom lights (Whoa-oh)

Your lips they burn your body calls my name (Whoa-oh)

I can feel the fire but it's all in vain (Whoa-oh)

Chorus

You say we'll meet around midnight
You're gonna make me feel oh so right

I'm saying oh no not tonight

You gotta let me go

Chorus

You say we'll meet around midnight
You're gonna make me feel oh so right

I'm saying oh no not tonight

You gotta let me go


 

BURNING FOR LOVE
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

I've been lied to, you been cheated
I've been cried to, you been mistreated

I've been watching you, you want action

You need love and I need satisfaction

Chorus:
I'm burning for love

Filled with desire

I can't stand the heat

And my heart's on fire

I can't get enough

It's down to the wire

I'm making my move, I'm looking for you

I'm burning for love

You're the victim it's in your eyes
I'm the suspect and love's the crime

Tensions mounting bodies shaking

I can't take the anticipation

Chorus

Now that I got you in my sight
Can't take another sleepless night

Oh, no, no

You can run but you can't hide

You're the only one I need

To feel the fire inside

Chorus


 

COME BACK
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

Now that you're gone, I can see what
Was going on and how you lied

When you'd said you'd never love again

Friends telephone and they say
You weren't out alone last night

Can't you see that this broken heart

Is killing me

Another night is falling
And now my heart is calling you back to me

Chorus:
Come back cause I need your love

Come back got to have your love

Come back bring your loving back to me

Come back cause it's been so long

Come back, and my love's still strong

Come back bring your loving back to me

You play with words play with love
It's just your silly way

I'm a fool cause I need you by my side again

Now it's too late you walk by
With another man

And I stand alone

Cause I know that you're not coming home

Another night is falling
And now my heart is calling you back to me

Chorus

Another night is falling
And now my heart is calling you back to me

Chorus


 

GET READY
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

You need someone to make it last
No Romeos who'll love and leave you fast

They fade away

Tonight you're not gonna be alone

Making love on the telephone

Baby, baby if you can hold on

I'm gonna take you all the way tonight

I like 'em down and dirty, so hold on tight

Chorus:
Come on get ready

Come on get ready

You're looking sharp in your dancing shoes
You got the style and you got the moves

Oh you're so hot, girl and on the loose

You're caught up in a danger zone

Just seventeen but you act full grown

The night life, baby, is turning you on

You want to take me all the way tonight

Take my hand, you can feel the heat

Make you feel alright

Chorus

Come on
Come on
