Always

This romeo is bleeding
But you can't see his blood

It's nothing but some feelings

That this old dog kicked up

It's been raining since you left me
Now I'm drowning in the flood

You see I've always been a fighter

But without you I give up

Now I can't sing a love song
Like the way it's meant to be

Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore

But baby, that's just me

And I will love you, baby - Always
And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

I'll be there till the stars don't shine

Till the heavens burst and

The words don't rhyme

And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind

And I'll love you - Always

Now your pictures that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life

Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry

One that made you have to say goodbye

What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair

To touch your lips, to hold you near

When you say your prayers try to understand

I've made mistakes, I'm just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near
When he says the words you've been needing to hear

I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine

To say to you till the end of time

Yeah, I will love you baby - Always
And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

If you told me to cry for you
I could

If you told me to die for you

I would

Take a look at my face

There's no price I won't pay

To say these words to you

Well, there ain't no luck
In these loaded dice

But baby if you give me just one more try

We can pack up our old dreams

And our old lives

We'll find a place where the sun still shines

And I will love you, baby - Always
And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

I'll be there till the stars don't shine

Till the heavens burst and

The words don't rhyme

And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind

And I'll love you - Always


 

Bad Medicine

I ain't got a fever got a permanent disease
It'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy

I got lots of money but it isn't what I need

Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison out of me

I got all the symptoms count 'em 1,2,3

First I need
That's what you get for falling in love

Then you bleed

You get a little but it's never enough

On your knees

That's what you get for falling in love

And now this boy's addicted cause your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

There ain't no doctor that can

Cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine
Bad, bad medicine

I don't need no needle
To be diving me a thrill

And I don't need no anesthesia

Or a nurse to bring a pill

I got a dirty down addition

It doesn't leave a track

I got a jone for your affection

Like a money on my back

There ain't no paramedic
Gonna save this heart attack

When you need
That's what you get for falling in love

Then you bleed

You get a little but it's never enough

On your knees

That's what you get for falling in love

Now I'm addicted and your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

So let's play doctor, baby

Cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine
Bad, bad medicine

Solo

I need a respirator cause I'm running out of breath
You're an all night generator wrapped is stockings and a dress

When you find your medicine you take what you can get

Cause if there's something better baby well thay haven't found it yet

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

There ain't no doctor that can

Cure my disease

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need

Shake it up, just like bad madicine

Your love's the potion that

Can cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine
Bad, bad medicine


 

Bed Of Roses

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

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


 

Blaze Of Glory

I wake up in the morning
And I raise my weary head

I got an old coat for a pillow

And the earth was last night's bed

I don't know where I'm going

Only God knows where I've been

I'm a devil on the run

A six gun lover

A candle in the wind

When you're brought into this world

They say you're born in sin

Well at least they gave me something

I didn't have to steal or have to win

Well they tell me that I'm wanted

Yeah I'm a wanted man

I'm colt in your stable

I'm what Cain was to Abel

Mister catch me if you can

I'm going down in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

I'm going down in a blaze of glory

Lord I never drew first

But I drew first blood

I'm no one's son

Call me young gun

You ask about my consience

And I offer you my soul

You ask If I'll grow to be a wise man

Well I ask if I'll grow old

You ask me if I known love

And what it's like to sing songs in the rain

Well,I've seen love come

And I've seen it shot down

I've seen it die in vain

Shot down in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

'Cause I'm going down in a blaze of glory

Lord I never drew first

But I drew first blood

I'm the devil's son

Call me young gun

Each night I go to bed

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

No I ain't looking for forgiveness

But before I'm six foot deep

Lord,I got to ask a favor

And I'll hope you'll understand

'Cause I've lived life to the fullest

Let the boy die like a man

Staring down the bullet

Let me make my final stand

Shot down in a blaze of glory

Take me now but know the truth

I'm going out in a blaze of glory

Lord I never drew first

But I drew first blood

and I'm no one's son

Call me young gun

I'm a young gun


 

I'll Be There For You

I guess this time you're really leaving
I heard your suitcase say goodbye

And as my broken heart lies bleeding

You say true love in suicide

You say you're cried a thousand rivers
And now you're swimming for the shore

You left me drowning in my tears

And you won't save me anymore

Now I'm praying to God you'll give me one more chance, girl

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you

When you breathe I want to be the air for you

I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you

Steal the sun from the sky for you

Words can't say what a love can do

I'll be there for you

I know you know we're had some good times
How they have their own hiding place

I can promise you tomorrow

But I can't buy back yesterday

And Baby you know my hands are dirty
But I wanted to be your valentine

I'll be the water when you get thirsty, baby

When you get drink, I'll be the wine

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you

When you breathe I want to be the air for you

I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you

Steal the sun from the sky for you

Words can't say what a love can do

I'll be there for you

Solo

And I wan't there when you were happy
I wasn't there when you were down

I didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby

I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you

When you breathe I want to be the air for you

I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you

Steal the sun from the sky for you

Words can't say what a love can do

I'll be there for you


 

In And Out Of Love

Young and wired
Set to explode in the heat

You won't tire

Cause baby was born with the beat

Take you higher than you've ever known

Then drive you down to your knees

I pick you up when you've had enough

You been burned baby lessons learned

In and out of love
Hear what I'm sayin'

In and out of love

It's the way that we're playing

In and out of love

Too much is never enough

She's gonna get ya.

Running wild
When me and my boys hit the streets

Right on time

She's here to make my night complete

Then I'm long gone I got another show

One more town, one mile to go

One endless night of fantasy

Is all she left of her with me

In and out of love
Hear what I'm sayin'

In and out of love

It's the way that we're playing

In and out of love

When we're together

In and out of love

It's too much forever

In and out of love
Hear what I'm saying

In and out of love

It's the way that we're playing

In and out of love

Too much is never enough

She's gonna get you

In and out of love...


 

In These Arms

You want commitment
Take a look into these eyes

They burn with a fire, just for you now

Until the end of time

I would do anything

I'd beg, I'd steal, I'd die

To have you in these arms tonight

Baby I want you like the roses

Want the rain

You know I need you

Like a poet needs the pain

I would give anything

My blood my love my life

If you were in these arms tonight
I'd hold you

I'd need you

I'd get down on my knees for you

And make everything alright

If you were in these arms

I'd love you

I'd please you

I'd tell you that I'd never leave you

And love you till the end of time

If you were in these arms tonights

We stared at the sun
And we made a promise

A promise this world would never blind us

These are my words

Our words were our songs

Our songs are our prayers

These prayers keep me strong

It's what I believe

If you were in these arms tonight

If you were in these arms tonight
I'd hold you

I'd need you

I'd get down on my knees for you

And make everything alright

If you were in these arms

I'd love you

I'd please you

I'd tell you that I'd never leave you

And love you till the end of time

If you were in these arms tonights

Your clothes are still scatteder
All over our room

This old place still smells like

Your cheap perfume

Everything here reminds me of you

And there's nothing that I

Wouldn't do to be in your arms

And these were our words
They keep me strong

I'd hold you

I'd need you

I'd get down on my knees for you

And make everything alright

If you were in these arms

I'd love you

I'd please you

I'd tell you that I'd never leave you

And love you till the end of time

If you were in these arms tonights


 

Keep The Faith

Mother mother tell your children
That their time has just begun

I have suffered for my anger

There are wars that can't be won

Father father please believe me
I am laying down my guns

I am broken like an arrow

Forgive me

Forgive your wayward son

Everybody needs somebody to love
(mother, mother)

Everybody needs somebody to hate

(please believe me)

Everybody's bitching

'cause they can't get enough

And it's hard to hold on

When there's no one to lean on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith

Faith: don't let your love turn to hate

Right now we got to

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Lord we got to keep the faith

Tell me baby when I hurt you
Do you keep it all inside

Do you tell me al's forgiven

And just hide behind your pride

Everybody needs somebody to love
(mother, father)

Everybody needs somebody to hate

(please don't leave me)

Everybody's bleeding

'cause the times are tough

Well it's hard to be strong

When there's no one to dream on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith

Now you know is not too late

Oh you got to keep the faith

Faith: don't let your love turn to hate

Right now we got to

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Keep the faith

Lord we got to keep the faith

Walking in the footsteps
Of society's lies

I don't like what I see no more

Sometimes I wish that I was blind

Sometimes I wait forever

To stand out in the rain
So no one sees me cryin'

Trying to wash away the pain

Mother father

There's things I've done I can't erase
Every night we fall from grace

It's hard with the world in yours face
Trying to hold on, trying to hold on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith

Faith: don't let your love turn to hate

Right now we got to keep the faith

Faith: now it's not too late

Try to hold on, trying to hold on

Keep the faith


 

Lay Your Hands On Me
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

If you're ready, I'm willing and able
Help me lay my cards out on the table

You're mine and I'm yours for the taking

Right now the rules we made are meant for breaking

What you get ain't always what you see
But satisfaction's guaranteed

They say what you give is always what you need

So if you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,
Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,

Lay your hands on me

I'm a fighter, I'm a poet, I'm a preacher
I've been to school and baby, I've been the teacher

If you show me how to get up off the ground

I can show you how to fly and never ever come back down

Everything you want is what I need
Satisfaction's guaranteed

But the ride don't never ever come for free

If you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,
Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,

Lay your hands on me

Solo

Don't you know I only aim to please
If you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me


 

Livin' On A Prayer
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora, D. Child

Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
Union's been on strike

He's down on his luck...it's tough, so tough

Gina works the diner all day

Working for her man, she brings home her pay

For love - for love

She says we've got to hold on to what we've got
'Cause it doesn't make a difference

If we make it or not

We've got each other and that's a lot

For love - we'll give it a shot

Chorus:
Whooah,  we're half way there

Livin' on a prayer

Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear

Livin' on a prayer

Tommy's got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in what he used

To make it talk - so tough, it's tough

Gina dreams of running away

When she cries in the night

Tommy whispers baby it's okay, someday

We've got to hold on to what we've got
'Cause it doesn't make a difference

If we make it or not

We've got each other and that's a lot

For love - we'll give it a shot

Chorus

We've got to hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got

Chorus


 

Never Say Goodbye
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

As I sit in this smokey room
The night about to end

I pass my time with strangers

But this bottle's my only friend

Remember when we used to park
On Butler Street out in the dark

Remember when we lost the keys

And you lost more than that in my backseat

Remember when we used to talk
About busting out - we'd break their hearts

Togheter - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends

Hoping it would never end

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye

Holdin' on - we got to try

Holdin' on to never say goodbye

Remember days of skipping school
Racing cars and being cool

With a six pack and the radio

We didn't need no place to go

Remember at the prom that night
You and me we had a fight

But the band they played our favorite song

And I held you in my arms so strong

We danced so close
We danced so slow

And I swore I'd never let you go

Togheter - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends

Hoping it would never end

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye

Holdin' on - we got to try

Holdin' on to never say goodbye

I guess you'd say we used to talk
About busting out

We'd break their hearts

Togheter - forever


 

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 walks 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 walks the night away


 

Someday I'll Be Saturday Night

Hey, man I'm alive I'm takin' each day and night at a time
I'm feelin' like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night

Hey, my name is Jim, where did I go wrong
My life's a bargain basement, all the good shit's gone

I just can't hold a job, where do I belong

I'm sleeping in my car, my dreams move on

My name is Billy Jean, my love was bought and sold
I'm only sixteen, I feel a hundred years old

My foster daddy went, took my innocence away

The street life aint much better, but at least I get paid

And Tuesday just might go my way
It can't get worse than yesterday

Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind

But somehow I'll survive

Hey man I'm alive I'm takin' each day and night at a time
Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get by

Hey hey hey hey, man gotta live my life

Like I ain't got nothin' but this roll of the dice

I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night

Now I can't say my name, and tell you where I am
I want to roll myself away, don't know if I can

I wish that I could be in some other time and place
With someone elses soul, someone elses face

Oh, Tuesday just might go my way
It can't get worse than yesterday

Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind

But somehow I'll survive

Hey, man I'm alive I'm takin' each day and night at a time
Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get by

Hey hey hey hey, man gotta live my life

I'm gonna pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride

I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night

Saturday night Here we go
Some day I'll be Saturday night

I'll be back on my feet, I'll be doin' alright

It may not be tomorrow baby, that's OK

I ain't goin' down, gonna find a way, hey hey hey

Hey man I'm alive I'm takin' each day and night at a time
Yeah, I'm down, but I know I'll get by

Hey hey hey hey, man, gotta live my life

Like I ain't got nothin' but this roll of the dice

I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night

I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night

Saturday night __________,all right, all right

Saturday night __________,


 

Wanted Dead Or Alive
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

It's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems we're wasting away

Another place where the faces are so cold

I'd drive all night just to get back home

Chorus:
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride

I'm wanted dead or alive

Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days
And the people I meet always go their separate ways

Sometimes you tell the day

By the bottle that you drink

And times when you're all alone all you do is think

Chorus

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back

I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall

I've seen a million faces an I've rocked them all

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive

I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side

I'm wanted dead or alive

Wanted dead or alive


 

You Give Love A Bad Name
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora, D. Child

An angel's smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven, then put me through hell

Chains of love got a hold on me

When passion's a prison, you can't break free

You're a loaded gun
There's nowhere to run

No one can save me

The damage is done

Chorus:
Shot through the heart

And you're to blame

You give love a bad name

I play my part and you play your game

You give love a bad name

You give love a bad name

Paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips

A school boy's dream, you act so shy

Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

You're a loaded gun
There's nowhere to run

No one can save me

The damage is done

Chorus
