    Lyrics:

    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’s still lodged in my head,
    And some blonde gave me nightmares.
    I think that 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, the truth, what you mean to me.
    And the truth is,
    Baby, you’re all that I need.

    I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses,
    For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails.
    Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is,
    And lay you down on a bed of roses.

    Well, I’m so far away.
    Each step that I take is on my way home.
    A king’s ransom in dimes I’d give each night to see through this pay-phone.
    Still I run out of time or it’s hard to get through.
    ‘Til the bird on the wire flies me back to you
    I’ll just close my eyes and whisper,
    “Baby, blind love is true.”

    I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses,
    For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails.
    Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is,
    And lay you down on a bed of roses.

    Well, this hotel bar’s hangover whiskey’s gone dry.
    The barkeeper’s wig’s crooked and she’s giving me the eye.
    Well, I might have said yeah
    But I laughed so hard I think I died.

    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.

    I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses,
    For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails.
    Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is,
    And lay you down.

    I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses,
    For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails.
    Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is,
    And lay you down on a bed of roses.

    Lyrics:
     

    I guess this time you’re really leaving
    I heard your suitcase say goodbye
    Well, as my broken heart lies bleeding
    You say true love is suicide

    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

    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 wanna be the air for you
    I’ll be there for you
    I’d live and I’d die for you
    I’d steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can’t say what love can do
    I’ll be there for you

    I know you know we’ve had some good times
    Now they have their own hiding place
    Well, 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 drunk, I’ll be the wine

    I’ll be there for you
    These five words I swear to you
    When you breathe I wanna be the air for you
    I’ll be there for you
    I’d live and I’d die for you
    I’d steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can’t say what love can do
    I’ll be there for you

    I wasn’t there when you were happy
    And 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 wanna be the air for you
    I’ll be there for you
    I’d live and I’d die for you
    I’d steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can’t say what love can do
    I’ll be there for

    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
    I’d steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can’t say what a love can do
    I’ll be there for you

    This one goes out to the man who mines for miracles
    This one goes out to the ones in need
    This one goes out to the sinner and the cynical
    This ain’t about no apology
    This road was paved by the hopeless and the hungry
    This road was paved by the winds of change
    Walking beside the guilty and the innocent
    How will you raise your hand when they call your name?
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Come on and get up off your knees

    You gotta stand up for what you believe

    This one’s about anyone who does it differently
    This one’s about the one who cusses and spits
    This ain’t about our livin’ in a fantasy

    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)

    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
    And I got all the symptoms count ’em 1, 2, 3

    First you need
    That’s what you get for falling in love
    Then you bleed
    You get a little but it’s never enough
    And then you’re on your knees
    That’s what you get for falling in love
    Now this boy’s addicted ’cause your kiss is the drug

    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, bad medicine

    I don’t need no needle to be giving me a thrill
    And I don’t need no anesthesia or a nurse to bring a pill
    I got a dirty down addiction that doesn’t leave a track
    I got a jones for your affection like a monkey 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
    And then you’re on your knees
    That’s what you get for falling in love
    Now this boy’s addicted ’cause your kiss is the drug

    Your love is like bad medicine
    Bad medicine is what I need
    Shake it up, just like bad medicine
    So let’s play doctor, baby, cure my disease

    Bad, bad medicine
    Is what I want
    Bad, bad medicine
    Is what I need

    [Solo]

    I need a respirator ’cause I’m running out of breath
    For you’re an all night generator wrapped in stockings and a dress
    When you find your medicine you take what you can get
    ‘Cause if there’s something better baby well they haven’t found it yet

    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

    Your love—bad medicine
    Bad medicine is what I need
    Shake it up, just like bad medicine
    Your love’s the potion that can cure my disease

    Bad, bad medicine
    Is what I want
    Bad, bad medicine
    Who’s bad, who’s bad

    I gotta do, I gotta
    (Bad, bad medicine)
    I gotta do, I gotta
    I gotta, I gotta
    I gotta do it again

    Wait a minute
    Wait a minute
    Hold on
    I’m not done
    One more time with feel
    Come on
    One for that
    Help me up now

    Your love is like bad medicine
    Bad medicine is what I need
    Shake it up, just like bad medicine
    You got the potion that can cure my disease

    Your love—bad medicine
    Your kiss is what I need
    Your love—bad medicine

    Lyrics: 
     

    It’s all the same, only the names will change
    Every day it seems we’re wasting away
    Another place where the faces are so cold
    I’d drive all night just to get back home

    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 alone all you do is think

    [2x]
    I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
    I’m wanted dead or alive
    Wanted dead or alive

    And I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
    I play for keeps, ’cause I might not make it back
    I’ve been everywhere, and still I’m standing tall
    I’ve seen a million faces and I’ve rocked them all

    ‘Cause I’m a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
    I’m wanted dead or alive
    ‘Cause I’m a cowboy, I got the night on my side
    I’m wanted dead or alive
    And I ride dead or alive
    I still drive, dead or alive
    Dead or alive [4x]

    Lyrics:
     
     
     

    Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
    Who, are you to tell me if it’s black or white?
    Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
    Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
    My daddy lived the lie, that’s just the price that he paid
    Sacrificed his life, just slavin’ away.

    Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain’t gonna do what I don’t want to,
    I’m gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day

    Take a look around you; nothing’s what it seems
    We’re living in the broken home of hopes and dreams,
    Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
    Anybody brave enough to take a stand,
    I’ve knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
    Looking for forgiveness,
    what’s left to believe?

    Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,
    That gets me through the night.
    I ain’t gonna do what I don’t want to,
    I’m gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.

    Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,

    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.

    When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
    I gotta raise my hands, I’m gonna stand my ground.
    Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day
    Have A Nice Day

    Lyrics:
     

    This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted 
    No silent prayer for the faith-departed 
    I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd 
    You’re gonna hear my voice 
    When I shout it out loud 

    [Chorus:]
    It’s my life 
    It’s now or never 
    I ain’t gonna live forever 
    I just want to live while I’m alive 
    (It’s my life) 
    My heart is like an open highway 
    Like Frankie said 
    I did it my way 
    I just wanna live while I’m alive 
    It’s my life 

    This is for the ones who stood their ground 
    For Tommy and Gina who never backed down 
    Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake 
    Luck ain’t even lucky 
    Got to make your own breaks 

    [Chorus:]
    It’s my life 
    And it’s now or never 
    I ain’t gonna live forever 
    I just want to live while I’m alive 
    (It’s my life) 
    My heart is like an open highway 
    Like Frankie said 
    I did it my way 
    I just want to live while I’m alive 
    ‘Cause it’s my life 

    Better stand tall when they’re calling you out 
    Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down 

    [Chorus:]
    It’s my life 
    And it’s now or never 
    ‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever 
    I just want to live while I’m alive 
    (It’s my life) 
    My heart is like an open highway 
    Like Frankie said 
    I did it my way 
    I just want to live while I’m alive 

    [Chorus:]
    It’s my life 
    And it’s now or never 
    ‘Cause I ain’t gonna live forever 
    I just want to live while I’m alive 
    (It’s my life) 
    My heart is like an open highway 
    Like Frankie said

    I just want to live while I’m alive

    Shot through the heart
    And you’re to blame
    Darling, you give love a bad name

    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

    Oh, oh, you’re a loaded gun
    Oh, oh, there’s nowhere to run
    No one can save me
    The damage is done

    Shot through the heart
    And you’re to blame
    You give love a bad name (bad name)
    I play my part
    And you play your game
    You give love a bad name (bad name)
    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

    Oh, oh, you’re a loaded gun
    Oh, oh, there’s nowhere to run
    No one can save me
    The damage is done

    Shot through the heart
    And you’re to blame
    You give love a bad name (bad name)
    I play my part
    And you play your game
    You give love a bad name (bad name)
    You give love

    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 (bad name)

    Shot through the heart

    Lyrics:
     

    The More Things Change the more the stay the same 
    The more things change the more the stay the same 

    Ah, is it just me or does anybody see 
    The new improved tomorrow isn’t what it used to be 
    Yesterday keeps comin’ ’round, it’s just reality 
    It’s the same damn song with a different melody 
    The market keeps on crashin’ 

    Tattered jeans are back in fashion 
    ‘Stead of records, now it’s MP3s 
    I tell you one more time with feeling 
    Even though this world is reeling 
    You’re still you and I’m still me 
    I didn’t mean to cause a scene 
    But I guess it’s time to roll up our sleeves 

    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The same sunrise, it’s just another day 
    If you hang in long enough they say you’re comin’ back 
    Just take a look, we’re living proof and baby that’s a fact 
    You know the more things change the more they stay the same 
    The more things change the more they stay the same 

    You’re either runnin’ round in circles or you’re runnin’ out of time 
    Everybody somewhere either 12, 3, 6 or 9 
    The times they are a-changin’ 
    We’re here to turn the page 
    It’s the same old story but it’s told a different way 

    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The same sunrise, it’s just another day 
    If you hang in long enough they say you’re comin’ back 
    Just take a look, we’re living proof and baby that’s a fact 
    You know the more things change the more they stay the same 
    Never and forever just keep comin’ back again 
    Don’t hold out for tomorrow or hold onto yesterday 

    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The more things change the more they stay the same 

    Here comes a na na na na na na na 
    These days it’s the raise the roof instead of sha la la 
    Here come the rockers, the dancers and the remixed drum machine 
    This one is for the CEOs and record companies 
    And if you’re waitin’ on a happy ending 
    We’re gonna hit the hook one more time 

    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The more things change the more they stay the same 
    The more things change the more they stay the same 

    You know the more things change the more they stay the same 
    The same sunrise, it’s just another day 
    If you hang in long enough they say you’re comin’ back 
    Just take a look, we’re living proof and baby that’s a fact 
    You know the more things change the more they stay the same 
    Never and forever just keep comin’ back again 
    Don’t hold out for tomorrow or hold onto yesterday 
    The more things change the more they stay the same

    Whoa oh oh oh 
    Oh oh oh 
    Oh oh oh oh

    Lyrics:
     

    These days what’s left of me ain’t no Prince Charming
    And my Cinderella feels like she stayed at the dance too long
    We ain’t got much but what we got is all that matters
    We’re pickin’ up the pieces, tryin’ to put ‘em back where they belong

    Ohh, it’s gonna be alright
    This is love, this is life
    When times get tough we’re still worth the fight
    This is love, this is life
    The road here’s paved with the brokenhearted
    We gotta finish what we started
    Ohhh, better hold on tight
    This is love, this is life

    These days it seems like there’s three sides to every story
    There’s yours, mine, lately there’s the cold hard truth
    Who cares who’s wrong or right when we turn out the lights?
    We’ll find forgiveness when we’re in each other’s arms tonight
    It ain’t pretty but somehow we always make it through

    Ohh, it’s gonna be alright
    This is love, this is life
    When times get tough we’re still worth the fight
    This is love, this is life
    The road here’s paved with the brokenhearted
    We gotta finish what we started
    Ohhh, better hold on tight
    This is love, this is life

    Ohh, it’s gonna be alright
    This is love, this is life
    When times get tough we’re still worth the fight
    This is love, this is life
    The road here’s paved with the brokenhearted
    We gotta finish what we started
    Ohhh, better hold on tight
    This is love, this is life
    This is love, this is life
    This is love, this is life

    Lyrics:
     

    I can still remember 
    When I was just a kid 
    When friends were friends forever 
    And what you said was what you did 

    Well, it was me and Danny and Bobby 
    We cut each other’s hands 
    And held tight to a promise 
    Only brothers understand 

    But we were so young (so young) 
    One for all and all for one (for one) 
    Just as sure as the river’s gonna run 

    Blood on blood 
    One on one 
    We’d still be standing 
    When all was said and done 
    Blood on blood 
    One on one 
    And I’ll be here for you 
    Till Kingdom come 
    Blood on blood 

    Well, Bobby was our hero 
    Cause he had a fake I.D. 
    I got busted stealing cigarettes 
    And he took the rap for me 

    Danny knew this white trash girl 
    We each threw in a ten 
    She took us to this cheap motel 
    And turned us into men 

    We were so young (so young) 
    One for all and all for one (for one) 
    Just as sure as the river’s gonna run 

    Blood on blood 
    One on one 
    We’d still be standing 
    When all is said and done 
    Blood on blood 
    One on one 
    And I’ll be here for you 
    Till Kingdom come 
    Blood on blood 

    [Solo]

    Now Bobby, he’s an uptown lawyer 
    Danny, he’s a medicin man 
    And me, I’m just the singer 
    In a long haired rock’n’roll band 

    Through the years and miles between us 
    It’s been a long and lonely ride 
    But if I got a call in the dead of the night 
    I’d be right by your side 

    Blood on blood, blood on blood 

    Blood on blood 
    One on one 
    We’d still be standing 
    When all is said and done 
    Blood on blood 
    One on one 
    And I’ll be here for you 
    Till Kingdom come 
    Blood on blood 

    Blood on blood

    Lyrics:
     
     

    I was walking around, just a face in the crowd
    Trying to keep myself out of the rain
    Saw a vagabond king wear a styrofoam crown
    Wondered if I might end up the same
    There’s a man out on the corner
    Singing old songs about change
    Everybody got their cross to bare, these days

    She came looking for some shelter with a suitcase full of dreams
    To a motel room on the boulevard
    I guess she’s trying to be James Dean
    She’s seen all the disciples and all the “wanna be’s”
    No one wants to be themselves these days
    Still there’s nothing to hold on to but these days

    These days – the stars seem out of reach
    These days – there ain’t a ladder on the streets
    These days are fast, nothing lasts in this graceless age
    There ain’t nobody left but us these days

    Jimmy shoes busted both his legs, trying to learn to fly
    From a second story window, he just jumped and closed his eyes
    His momma said he was crazy – he said, “Momma, 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 – the stars seem out of reach
    But these days – there ain’t a ladder on the streets
    These days are fast, nothing lasts in this graceless age
    Even innocence has caught the midnight train
    And there ain’t nobody left but us these days

    I know Rome’s still burning
    Though the times have changed
    This world keeps turning round and round and round and round
    These days

    These days – the stars seem out of reach
    But these days – there ain’t a ladder on the streets
    These days are fast, love don’t last in this graceless age 
    Even innocence has caught the midnight train
    And there ain’t nobody left but us these days

    These days – the stars seem out of reach
    These days – there ain’t a ladder on the streets
    These days are fast, nothing lasts
    There ain’t no time to waste
    There ain’t nobody left to take the blame
    There ain’t nobody left but us these days

    Lyrics:
     
     

    I should have seen it coming when roses died
    Should have seen the end of summer in your eyes
    I should have listened when you said good night
    You really meant good bye
    Baby, ain’t it funny, how you never ever learn to fall
    You’re really on your knees, when you think you’re standing tall
    But only fools are “know-it-alls” and I played that fool for you

    I cried and I cried
    There were nights that died for you baby
    I tried and I tried to deny that your love drove me crazy, baby

    If the love that I got for you is gone
    If the river I cried ain’t that long
    Then I’m wrong, yeah I’m wrong, this ain’t a love song

    Baby, I thought you and me would stand the test of time
    Like we got away with the perfect crime
    But we were just a legend in my mind
    I guess that I was blind
    Remember those nights dancing at the masquerade
    The clowns wore smiles that wouldn’t fade
    You and I were the renegades, some things never change

    It made me so mad ’cause I wanted it bad for us baby
    Now it’s so sad that whatever we had, ain’t worth saving
    If the love that I got for you is gone
    If the river I’ve cried ain’t that long
    Then I’m wrong, yes I’m wrong, this ain’t a love song

    If the pain that I’m feeling so strong
    Is the reason that I’m holding on
    Then I’m wrong, yeah I’m wrong – this ain’t a love song

    I cried and I cried
    There were nights that I died for you baby
    I tried and I tried to deny that your love drove me crazy

    If the love that I got for you is gone
    If the river I cried ain’t that long
    Then I’m wrong, yeah I’m wrong – this ain’t no love song

    If the pain that I’m feeling so strong
    Is the reason that I’m holding on
    Then I’m wrong, yeah I’m wrong – this ain’t a love song

    If the pain that I’m feeling so strong
    Is the reason that I’m holding on
    Then I’m wrong, yeah I’m wrong – this ain’t a love song
    Yes, I’m wrong, yeah, I’m wrong – this ain’t a love song
    Yes, I’m wrong, yeah, I’m wrong – this ain’t a love song
    Yes, I’m wrong, yeah, I’m wrong – this ain’t a love song

    Lyrics:
     

    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 a 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 conscience
    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 this 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

    The world is cracked
    The sky is torn
    I’m hanging in
    You’re holding on

    I can’t pretend
    That nothings changed
    Living in the shadows
    Of the love we made

    Back…When we were beautiful
    Before the world got small
    Before we knew it all
    Back… When we were innocent
    I wonder where it went
    Let’s go back and find it

    Sha la la Sha la la hey Sha la la 
    Sha la la Sha la la hey Sha la la

    Some dreams live 
    Some will die
    But the you and me
    Is still alive 

    Now am I blessed?
    Or am I cursed?
    Cause the way we are
    Aint the way we were

    Back…When we were beautiful
    Before the world got small
    Before we knew it all
    Back… When we were innocent
    I wonder where it went
    Let’s go back and find it

    [Solo]

    The world is cracked
    The sky is torn
    So much less
    Meant so much more

    Back…When we were beautiful
    Before the world got small
    Before we knew it all
    Back… When we were innocent
    I wonder where it went
    Let’s go back and find it

    Back…When we were beautiful
    Back…When we were beautiful
    Back…When we were beautiful
    Back…When we were beautiful

    Lyrics:
     

    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 through the rain
    Lord, we’ve gotta keep the faith
    Faith: don’t you let your love turn to hate
    Right now we’ve gotta
    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith

    Tell me baby when I hurt you
    Do you keep it all inside
    Do you tell me all’s forgiven
    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 through the rain
    Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith
    Faith!
    Don’t you know it’s never too late
    Right now we’ve gotta keep the faith
    Faith: don’t you let your love turn to hate
    Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith

    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    Oh, we’ve gotta keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith

    I’ve been 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 this pain

    Mother father
    (Everybody needs somebody to love)
    There’s things I’ve done I can’t erase
    (Everybody needs somebody to hate)
    Every night we fall from grace
    (Everybody’s bitching ’cause they can’t get enough)
    It’s hard with the world in your face
    (Everybody bleeds)
    Trying to hold on, trying to hold on
    (Everybody, keep the pain)

    Faith: you know you’re gonna live through the rain
    Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith
    Faith: don’t you let your love turn to hate
    Right now we’ve gotta keep the faith

    Faith
    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    Trying to hold on, trying to hold on

    Faith
    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith
    (Everybody, keep the pain)

    Faith
    Keep the faith
    Keep the faith

    Faith
    (Everybody needs somebody to love)
    (Everybody needs somebody to hate)
    (Everybody needs somebody to love)
    (Everybody bleeds)

    Take you higher than you’ve ever known
    Then drive you down to your knees
    I’ll 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
    Too much is never enough
    She’s gonna get ya

    Out of love [4x]

    In and out of love [12x]

    Seven days of saturday 
    Is all that I need 
    Got no use for Sunday 
    ‘Cause I don’t rest in peace 
    Don’t need no Mondays 
    Or the rest of the week 
    I spend a lot of time in bed 
    But baby I don’t like to sleep no 

    I won’t lie to you 
    I’m never gonna cry to you 
    I’ll probably drive you wild 8 days a week 

    Until I’m 6 feet under 
    Baby I don’t need a bed 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 
    Till they roll me over 
    And lay my bones to rest 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 

    So you’re looking for some action 
    I got got everything you need 
    Better keep your motor running 
    ’cause I was built for speed 
    This ain’t no slumber party 
    Got no time for catching z’s 
    If they say that that ain’t healthy 
    Well then living’s a disease 

    We’re never going to die baby 
    Come on let me drive you crazy 
    We’ll make every night another New Year’s Eve 

    Till I’m six feet under 
    I won’t need a bed 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 
    Till they roll me over 
    And lay my bones to rest 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 

    Sleep when I’m dead, sleep when I’m dead 
    Gonna live while I’m alive, 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 
    Seven days of Saturday 
    Is all that I need 

    Got no use for Sunday 
    ‘Cause I don’t rest in peace 
    I was born to live 
    You know I wasn’t born to die 
    But if they party down in heaven 
    I’ll be sure to be on time 

    Until I’m six feet under 
    I don’t need a bed 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 
    Till they roll me over 
    And lay my bones to rest 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 

    I feel like I’m exploding 
    Going out of my head 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 

    Till I’m six feet under 
    And they lay my bones to rest 
    Gonna live while I’m alive 
    I’ll sleep when I’m dead 

    Sleep when I’m dead, sleep when I’m dead 
    Gonna live while I’m alive, sleep when I’m dead

    In my rearview mirror
    My life is getting clearer
    The sunset sighs and slowly disappears
    These trinkets once were treasure
    Life changes like the weather
    You grow up, grow old or hit the road ’round here
    So I drive, watching white lines passing by
    With my plastic dashboard Jesus, waiting there to greet us

    Hey, hey, I finally found my way
    Say goodbye to yesterday
    Hit the gas there ain’t no brakes on the lost highway
    Yeah I’m busting loose, I’m letting go
    Out on this open road
    It’s independence day on this lost highway

    I don’t know where I’m going
    But I know where I’ve been
    Now I’m afraid of going back again
    So I drive, years and miles are flying by
    And waiting there to great us
    Is my plastic dashboard Jesus

    Oh patron saint of lonely souls
    To tell this boy which way to go
    Guide the car, you got the keys
    Farewell to mediocrity
    Kicking off the cruise-control
    And turning up the radio
    Got just enough religion
    And a half tank of gas come on, let’s go 

    I finally found my way
    Say goodbye to yesterday
    Hit the gas there ain’t no brakes on the lost highway
    Yeah I’m busting loose, I’m letting go

     Bon Jovi is an American rock band from Sayreville, New Jersey. Formed in 1983, Bon Jovi consists of lead singer and namesake Jon Bon Jovi, pianist and keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres, lead guitarist Phil X, and bassist Hugh McDonald. The band’s lineup has remained mostly static during its history, with the only exceptions being the 1994 dismissal of bass player Alec John Such, who was unofficially replaced by Hugh McDonald, and the departure of longtime guitarist and co-songwriter Richie Sambora in 2013. Phil X and McDonald both became official members in 2016.
    In 1986, Bon Jovi achieved widespread global recognition with their third album, Slippery When Wet. The band’s fourth album, New Jersey was equally successful in 1988. After touring and recording non-stop during the late 1980s, the band went on hiatus following the New Jersey Tour in 1990, during which time Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora both released successful solo albums. In 1992, the band returned with the album Keep the Faith. Their 2000 single “It’s My Life”, which followed a second hiatus, successfully introduced the band to a younger audience. Bon Jovi have been known to use different styles in their music, which has included country for their 2007 album Lost Highway.
    Thus far, Bon Jovi has released 13 studio albums, plus six compilations and three live albums. The band has sold more than 130 million records worldwide and performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans. Bon Jovi was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006. The band was also honored with the Award of Merit at the American Music Awards in 2004, and as songwriters and collaborators, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora were inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.
