100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong - CD 3 (2004)

Edge Of A Broken Heart
Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Desmond Child

And there I stood just like a soldier
I was tough until I saw her
I said hello, but she just turned away
Hey Romeo, whatchya doin' with my girl?
Who are you using now? I turn and walk away
I'm gonna please her
Now you can believe it
I'll be there to catch her when she falls

Chorus:
Here I am (on the edge of a broken heart)
I'm a man (on the edge of a broken heart)
Here we stand (on the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 'cause you know
I'm a man on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)

I'm on the outside, looking inside
You're with him, whose on the wrong side now?
Do you still think of me?
I've tried to call but no one answers
Two silhouettes, a private dancer
The lights go dim as the music starts to fade away
I'm the one who needs you
Now you can believe it
I'll be there to catch you when you fall

Chorus:
You better believe I'm a man (on the edge of a broken heart)
Here I am (on the edge of a broken heart)
And we stand (on the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 'cause you know
I'm a man on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)

-guitar solo - 

Oh...

And when I hold out my hands
I'll be reaching for you
I give it all that I've got
That's all I can do
When you're waiting for love
I'll be waiting for you

Chorus:
On the edge of a broken heart
Only for you (on the edge of a broken heart)
Baby for you (on the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 
You know I'm a man on the edge
On the edge of a broken heart
I'm on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (on the edge of a broken heart)

Sympathy
Bon Jovi, Sambora

Well you walked out the door just like a thief in the night
I guess you never even had the balls to say goodbye
You stole my heart and you took all the cash
You split with my soul and my stereo, left me with the trash
I never been nobody's Valentine and you never were a bride to be
I don't need you to be a friend of mine, I don't need no charity

Chorus:
Don't' come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't livin' 'round here no more
I don't want to taste your empathy
I don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby
Don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby

I bet your out on the streets, wrapped up in somebody's arms
Until it's time to pay the rent - you'll be gone, gone, gone
You got a suicide heart, you send it COD
Honey, I know your act, when you're sending it back don't come bitchin' to me
Who said love is just a sacrifice was a man in need of sympathy
It sure don't take too long to realize that you ain't getting none from me

Chorus:
Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't living 'round here no more
I don't want to taste your empathy
I don't want your sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby
Don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby

- guitar solo -

When I look back in time I see love ain't been no friend to me
I never been nobody's Valentine and you never were a bride to be

Chorus: Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't livin' 'round here no more
Count up all the tears you've cried for me
Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't livin' round here no more
I don't wanna taste your charity
I don't want no sympathy
I don't need no sympathy, baby
Don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby
I want no sympathy
I don't need no sympathy
I don't like no sympathy
I won't hear your sympathy, sympathy, sympathy, sympathy, not for me…

Only In My Dreams (vocals by Tico)
Bon Jovi

Barkeep pour me one last shot 'cause I must be on my way
Gotta make that same old stop that this soul makes everyday
Tell me why am I holding on? Harry, why is love like a flame?
It burns you when it's hot but Cupid's fire trucks never came
I can't bend the hands of time so I think myself to sleep
The way you never said goodbye if only in my dreams

Chorus:
Tell me where you want to go
Tell what you long to be
Are you longing for my touch?
If only in my dreams
We sing the love songs you once sung
Touch the stars you want to reach
And I will see the job gets done
If only in my dreams

Lord, I'd sacrifice my eyes; there's nothing else I'd rather see
And you can have my heart; it's of little use to me
And if you want my soul I'd throw it in for free
It's all I'm worth that's left since my angel got her wings
Now I'm down and on my knees; it's of little use to pray
Unless you give her back but there's no deals cut these days
They're only in my dreams

Chorus:
Tell me where you want to go
Tell me what you long to be
Are you longing for my touch?
If only in my dreams
We'll sing the love songs you once sung
Touch the stars you want to reach
And I'll see the job gets done
If only in my dreams

Now I curse the daytime
When I'm alone at nighttime
'Cause I swore the sun shined just for you
And I know you anywhere
There ain't no pain, there ain't no tears
And if I have my way from the moment I get there…

Chorus:
Take me where you wanna go
We'll be who you wanna be
All I needed was your touch
All I want is you and me
We'll sing the love songs you once sung
And you'll be in my dream
Until that war is won
It's only in my dreams

Shut Up And Kiss Me
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Child

I don't wanna talk about it
Baby wanna talk all night
You're on your feet six days a week
We're working nights just trying to make ends meet
We break our backs on the killing floor
Another guy's what's we're doing it for
We got a lot, we don't more

Chorus:
We're rolling, baby
Tell me when you go
Rolling, ready
Tell me where to go

I don't wanna watch the TV
Wash the dishes now or pay the bills
Don't wanna eat, don't need to sleep
The only real meal that gives me a thrill
Don't need no candles, you're the spark
Don't need no matches, just a fire in the dark
We come together and that's a good start

Chorus:
Baby, we're crazy
And I know that you can't hide
'Cause the earth anywhere
There up on the other side

We break our backs on the killing floor
Another guy's what's we're doing it for
We got a lot, we don't more

Chorus:
We're rolling, baby
Tell me when you go
Rolling, ready
Tell me where to go
Baby, we're crazy
And I know that you can't hide
'Cause the earth anywhere
There up on the other side

Crazy Love
Bon Jovi, Mark Hudson, Dave Stewart

The city sounds like a symphony
A cabbie screams obscenities
The horns are honking jazz in the night
Her street is lit like a Christmas tree
This place is my amphetamine
She junks me but it's alright
In her summer dress she parts the sea
Her hair wrapped up in rosary beads
Everybody else is gone but her and me

Chorus:
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again

Sitting on my stoop
I lit one up and put the ashes in my coffee cup
And watched the world passing me by
Throw a coat of paint on this rusty heart
Ain't it funny how life imitates art
Saint Valentine he's got bloody knees tonight
But when she's walking down the street
The sidewalk's there to kiss her feet

Chorus:
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again

She needs me, pleads me
Wraps me in her loving charms
She'll tease me, squeeze me
But I'm the man when I'm in her arms

- guitar solo - 

Now the angels sing a melody
That they wrote for her explicitly
That no one hears but her and me

Now wait a minute… wait I can't believe my eyes
Who's that coming around the corner?
Oh, she's lookin' fine ain't she? … get out the way!
No, no, no get out the way… oh, look at those high heel sneakers…

Chorus:
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here it comes, that crazy love
Here she comes, that crazy thing called love
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here it comes, that crazy love
Here she comes, that crazy thing called love
Here she comes

Lonely At The Top
Bon Jovi, Sambora

Tell Frannie I'm sorry she didn't get to know her dad
I'll bet he's sorry he didn't get to know you too
Tell her there'll be people saying things that make her sad
How her daddy felt alone, how he was hurtin' bad
I guess that won't be too far from the truth

Chorus:
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Happy is one thing it's not
I was jaded, suffocated; it got too hard to breathe
But never got as high as I needed to be

You know life becomes worthless when they steal your dreams
I just couldn't live with what was left for me
And I couldn't run far enough from the truth - what's the use?

Chorus:
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Happy is one thing it's not
Before you know you find yourself alone and looking down
No one there can help you stop before you hit the ground
It's lonely at the top

Tell Frannie I'm sorry - I better kiss her when she cries
I'm sorry I left her, never said goodbye
Didn't mean to leave you all alone but then the music died
Though the song remains the same, I couldn't live that lie
You know that ain't too far from the truth
And you know that ain't too far from the truth

Chorus:
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Happy's one thing it's not
Before you know you find yourself alone and looking down
No one there to help you stop before you hit the ground
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
It's lonely

Ordinary People
Bon Jovi, Sambora, David Bryan

Little Jimmy just bought high-top sneakers
He wants to fly high like his heroes can
He's got a smile like Michael Jordan
In the school yard, Jimmy, he's the man
I'm sitting here watching his heart beating
He's ten feet tall, all five foot four of him
Come six o'clock working out his foul shots
The ball ain't falling, Momma's calling
She smiles and says

Chorus:
You and me, we're ordinary people
Living in our ordinary lives
We can be ordinary people
But these are extraordinary times

She lives alone, got four kids through high school
She cleans houses and takes in wash at night
You'd never know that she don't have much
Because she's rich with the things money can't buy
She don't need clothes
She don't want diamonds
Don't got a brand new car to drive in
What she got is love and that's a lot
At least it's a good start

Chorus:
You and me, we're ordinary people
Living in our ordinary lives
We can be ordinary people
But these are extraordinary times

Everybody wants to be somebody
Everybody wants to be someone
We only want to watch the game on Sunday
Sit back and catch a little buzz
Ain't nobody wants to be nobody
Everybody wants a little love
Everybody wants to be the hero
Ride into the setting sun

Chorus:
You and me, we're ordinary people
Living in our ordinary lives
We can be ordinary people
But these are extraordinary times
I've got dreams like ordinary people
I can see it when I close my eyes at night
Can't you see we're ordinary people
These are extraordinary times

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Say, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
(I have to go pee)

Flesh and Bone
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Bryan

They judge you by your money
Or the color of your skin
They read you by the cover
Don't take time to read within
They judge you without jury
And you struggle to believe
No one can hear your story
Even justice had to leave

Chorus:
All I know (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)

They build the walls around you
And they tell you you don't fit
And still you think you know me
You don't know the half of it
I'm a beggar, you're a savior
I'm your devil, you're a thief
I'll be here until you realize
I'm you and you are me

Chorus:
All that I know (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)

Yeah

- guitar solo - 

Chorus:
All that I know (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)

Do the cuts bleed any different
On a pauper or a king?
When it comes down to dying
The crown don't mean a thing
No, no, no…

Chorus:
(All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is on all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)

(All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is on all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)

(All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is on all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)

Satellite
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Child

Are you out there?
Can you hear me?
Do you know my whereabouts?
Do you know what I'm all about?
Through the static you're so close, so far away
Are you listening?
I'm desperate.
Sendin' out an S.O.S.
'Cause I'm lost; I must confess
Throw a lifeline
I'm down here drownin'
In the deepest part of me

Chorus:
Satellite
Can you feel me?
Satellite
Come and heal me
Are you watchin' over me tonight?
I need to know you're out there

Are your lines open and receiving?
You know I got so much to say
I just don't want to fade away
Keep on talking, 'cause you're keeping me alive

Chorus:
Satellite
Can you feel me?
Satellite
Come and heal me
Are you watchin' over me tonight
I need to know you're out there

Everybody hurts (everybody hurts)
Everybody cries (everybody cries)
Everybody needs someone
To save them sometimes

- guitar solo - 

Everybody hurts (everybody hurts)

Come and heal me

Satellite
Come and heal me

Are you watchin' over me tonight

If I Can't Have Your Love (vocals by Richie)
Sambora, Child, Diane Warren

It's hard to remember a time When I didn't have you, 
when I didn't have nothing but a cold bed to come to at night
That was all I knew, until there was you
And then you took my world and turned it all around
I couldn't live without you now

Chorus:
Baby, if I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch I got nothing, yeah
Baby, if I can't taste your kiss, then I don't exist
I got nothing, yeah

No I can't imagine living life without you
I can't imagine living life without your love

I wake up with you by my side
Can't let go, I can't even bear the thought
of you in another man's eyes
I would lose control, I would die
'Cause now you're in my heart and I can't let you out
I gotta keep you here somehow

Chorus:
Baby, if I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch I got nothing, yeah
Baby, if I can't taste your kiss then I don't exist
I got nothing
If I can't be your man, I wouldn't know who I am
I got nothing
I got nothing

No, I can't imagine living life without you
I can't imagine living life without your love

'Cause I can't imagine living life without you
Can't imagine living life without your love

Believe me baby I don't mean to doubt you
But if you ever leave, that would be the end of me, baby

Chorus:
Baby, if I can't feel your touch I got nothing
If I can't taste your kiss then I don't exist
I got nothing
I got nothing

Baby, if I can't be your man, I wouldn't know who I am
I'd be nothing, yeah
Baby, if I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch
I got nothing, yeah

No, I can't imagine living life without you
I can't imagine living life without your love

Real Life
Bon Jovi, Child

I wish that life was like it is in the movies
'Cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark lonely road
At the end he's got a smile on his face
But when they threw me out to the lions
No one saved me as I fell from your grace
And no one wrote me new lines for what I said wrong
What I did wrong I could not erase

Chorus:
This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside that I can't hide

I wish that I could be your white knight in armor
With an army just to bring you back home
But I'll admit I'm scared of dialing your number
That someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can't it be like it is on TV?
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me

Chorus:
This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside I can't hide

This real life
This real love
These are real wounds I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real

I always thought that our love was a storybook tale
God knows that I never dreamed in the end it would fail

Chorus:
This is real life
This is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears inside, I can't hide

This real life
This is real love
These are real wounds I'm bleeding from
When I realize this real

Memphis Lives In Me (vocals by David)
Bryan, Joe DiPietro

There's a town that I call home
Where all the streets are paved with soul
Down on Beale there's a honky-tonk bar
So hear the wail of a blues guitar
Have a beer and drop a dime in the blind man's jar

The blues sing softly in the air
like a Sunday morning prayer
Just one more drink and you'll see God everywhere
Like a sad old melody
that cheers you up, it sets you free
That's how Memphis lives in me

There comes a time when muddy waters run rough
There comes a point when a man has had enough
Like a friend who always stands by me
Memphis knows me
Never showed me
How did life just had to be

I couldn't even try to run away, say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die
I'm just a man from Tennessee
I can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives in me

I said I'm just a man from Tennessee
Can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives
All I know is Memphis gives
All I know is Memphis lives in me

Too Much Of A Good Thing
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Richie Supa

Love is like quicksand
It's always bringing me down
But I still keep coming back for more
And like an addiction
One is never enough
I'm like a junkie at your door
Too much of a good thing
is like getting high and coming down

Chorus:
My heart's on a string
I've been blind to the sting
Getting much too much of a good thing

I came to your party
And stayed a little too late
You woke up naked on the floor
You are my strongest weakness
And I don't want nothing else
You got the fix I'm looking for
Too much of a good thing 
will turn your whole world upside down

Chorus:
My heart's on a string
I've been blind to the sting
Getting much too much of a good thing

She's my favorite disease
Makes me crawl on my knees
Getting much too much of a good thing

Like you partied all night
and you're too trashed from drinking
The only way out is another shot glass to sink in
Tell me, baby, what'll it take
I keep making the same mistakes

Chorus:
My heart's on a string
I've been blind to the sting
Getting much too much of a good thing

And I know it's no good
Yeah, I'd quit if I could
Getting much too much
Getting much too much
Oh, it's just too much of a good thing
