Song lyrics

  • An angel's smile is what you sell
    You promised me heaven, then put me through hell.
    • "You Give Love a Bad Name"
  • She says we've got to hold on to what we've got
    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
    • "Living on a Prayer"
  • Gina dreams of running away, when she cries in the night
    Tommy whispers: Baby it's okay, someday.
    • "Living on a Prayer"
  • We've got to hold on ready or not
    You live for the fight when that's all that you've got.
    • "Living on a Prayer"
  • I saw a man down on lonely street
    A broken man who looked like me
    And no one knows the pain he's been living
    He lost his love and still hasn't forgiven himself.
    • "Without Love"
  • We danced so close; we danced so slow
    And I swore I'd never let you go.
    • "Never Say Goodbye"
  • It's all the same only the names have changed.
    • "Wanted Dead Or Alive"
  • What you get ain't always what you see
    But satisfaction is guaranteed
    • "Lay Your Hands on Me"
  • Only God would know the reasons
    But I bet he must have had a plan
    'Cause you were born to be my baby.
    • "Born To Be My Baby"
  • You say you've 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.
    • "I'll Be There For You"
  • I can promise you tomorrow
    But I can't buy back yesterday.
    • "I'll Be There For You"
  • I couldn't be the one to make your dreams come true
    That's why I had to run though I needed you.
    • "Wild Is The Wind"
  • We're two kids hitching down the road of life.
    • "Born To Be My Baby"
  • I can still remember when I was just a kid
    When friends were friends forever and what you said is what you did.
    • "Blood On Blood"
  • I need a respirator 'cause I'm running out of breath
    You're an all night generator wrapped in stockings and a dress.
    • "Bad Medicine"
  • Your love is like bad medicine.
    Bad medicine is what I need.
    Shake it up just like bad medicine.
    There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease.
    • "Bad Medicine"
  • Sometimes I wish I was blind
    Sometimes I wait forever
    To stand out in the rain
    So no one sees me cryin'
    Trying to wash away this pain.
    • "Keep The Faith"
  • Baby, I want you like the roses want the rain
    You know I need you like a poet needs the pain.
    • "In These Arms"
  • Now as you close your eyes, know I'll be thinking about you
    While my mistress she calls me to stand in her spotlight again
    Tonight, 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.
    • "Bed Of Roses"
  • If I could choose the way I’ll die
    Make it by the gun or knife
    'Cause the other way there's too much pain
    Night after night after night after night
    • "Dry County"
  • I never wanted the stars
    I never shot for the moon
    I like them right where they are
    All I wanted was you
    • "I Want You"
  • It feels so good it ought to be illegal.
    • "Blame It On The Love Of Rock'N'Roll"
  • I'll be there till the stars don't shine
    Till the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme
    I know when I die you'll be on my mind
    • "Always"
  • 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, that his words were mine
    • "Always"
  • 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 nothing but this roll of the dice.
    I'm feelin' like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night.
    • "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night"
  • You see I've always been a fighter, but without you - I'd give up.
    • "Always"
  • My foster Daddy went and took my innocence away
    The street life ain't much better, but at least I'm getting paid.
    • "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night"
  • I should have seen it coming when the roses died
    I should have seen the end of summer in your eyes.
    • "This Ain't a Love Song"
  • I didn't have much money so I stole you a rose.
    • "Bitter Wine"
  • Love left me stranded at the station and the last train's gone by
    What was once holy water tastes like bitter wine.
    • "Bitter Wine"
  • It's a bitch, but life's a roller coaster ride
    The ups and downs will make you scream sometimes.
    • "Lie To Me"
  • His ring is on your finger, but my heart is in your hands.
    • "Damned"
  • There's a man out on the corner, singing old song about change.
    Everybody's got their cross to bare these days.
    • "These Days"
  • Noone wants to be themselves these days.
    Still there's nothing to hold on to but these days.
    • "These Days"
  • These days, the stars ain't out of reach
    But these days, there ain't a ladder on the streets.
    Oh, no, no, these days are fast, nothing lasts, there ain't no time to waste,
    There ain't nobody left to take the blame.
    • "These Days"
  • Jimmy's shoes busted both his legs tryin' to learn to fly.
    From the second story window he just jumped and closed his eyes.
    His mamma said he was crazy; he said "Mamma, I've got to try.
    Don't you know that all my heroes died?"
    And I guess I'd rather die than fade away.
    • "These Days"
  • If there's nothing but survival, how can I believe in sin
    In a world that gives you nothing, i need something to believe in.
    • "Something To Believe In"
  • Give me something I can use
    To get me through the night
    To make me feel alright
    Something like you.
    • "Something For The Pain"
  • Now some tarot card-shark
    Said "I'll draw you a heart
    And we'll find you somebody else new"
    Well I made my last trip
    To those carnival lips
    When I bet all that I had on you.
    • "(It's Hard) Letting You Go"

    But hey God do you ever think about me?
