Bon Jovi (1984)

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 want 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 all right

Chorus

Come on
Come on
