Crush (2000)

It's My Life
M. Martin, J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for faith departed
And 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

Repeat chorus

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

Repeat chorus

Say It Isn't So
B. Falcon, J. Bon Jovi

I just can’t believe
It was all a lie
No man in the moon
Just a big light in the sky
I hear Disneyland
Might lose Mickey Mouse
In some giant hostile corporate shake-up
Tell me it's a nightmare
Please wake me up
(Say it isn't so)
I found a book of matches
From someplace we've never been
How come you hang the phone up the minute I walk in
Last night I had this dream
That I was losing you
I woke up in a cold sweat shaking
Rescue me my heart is breaking

Chorus 1
Say it isn't so (tell me it's not true)
Say it isn't so (I believe in you)
Tell me it's a lie (I don't need no proof)
Say everything's alright (couldn't be, not you)
Say it isn't so

Superman don't fly
They did it all with strings
Elvis Presley died
They deep fried the king
Like some tacky cheesy bathing beauty
Dancing on the beach in a bad b-movie

Repeat chorus 1

Chorus 2
Say it isn't so (don't give up on me)
Say it isn't so (don't give up on you)
Get me through the night (we'll make it through)
Make everything alright (couldn't be, not you)
Say it isn't so..

Repeat chorus 1

Repeat chorus 2


Thank You For Loving Me
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

It's hard for me to say the things
I want to say sometimes
There's no one here but you and me
And that broken old street light
Lock the doors
We'll leave the world outside
All I've got to give to you
Are these five words when I

Chorus
Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldn't see
For parting my lips
When I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

I never knew I had a dream
Until that dream was you
When I look into your eyes
The sky's a different blue
Cross my heart
I wear no disguise
If I tried, you'd make believe
That you believed my lies

Repeat chorus

You pick me up when I fall down
You ring the bell before they count me out
If I was drowning you would part the sea
And risk your own life to rescue me

Solo

Lock the doors
We'll leave the world outside
All I've got to give to you
Are these five words when I

Repeat chorus

When I couldn't fly
Oh, you gave me wings
You parted my lips
When I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me,
For loving me

Two Story Town
Grakal Dean, Hudson Mark, R. Sambora, J. Bon Jovi

I couldn't sleep
Took a walk down 2nd Avenue
Sick of dreaming dreams that never come true
One way street and I know where its leading to
There's a "For Sale" sign on the front door of the city hall
The subway line got graffiti crawling off the wall
I could take a hit but I ain't gonna take the fall

That's just one side of the story
In the two story town

Chorus
It's just the same old sights
And the same old sounds
I’m gonna take my car and drive out of this two story town
The same old ship, it’s going ’round
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
In a two story town

There's a girl that I sleep with
Got ecstasy eyes
He promised her roses and American pie
I called her and my demons
I kissed them both goodbye

Seven days of Monday morning
In this two story town

Repeat chorus

One shot to make a move now
The ghosts are calling me out

Guitar solo

And me I'm just one story
In a two story town
But you're never gonna find me in the lost and found

Repeat chorus

Chorus 2:
It's just the same old sights and the same old sounds
I’m gonna take my horse and ride him off this merry-go-round
I won't give in and I won't back down
I'm going down, down, down, down down
Never going down, down, down, down, down
I ain't going down, down, down, down, down
In a two story town
In this two story town

Next 100 Years
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

Time ain't nothing but time
It's a verse with no rhyme
Man, it all comes down to you

Change ain't nothing but change
Just the faces and the names
But you know we're gonna make it through

I'll believe
When you don't believe in anything

Chorus
I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
I'll be standing here
For the next 100 years
If it all should end tonight
I'll know it was worth the fight
And we'll be standing here
For the next 100 years

I, when I think that I'm losing my mind
It all comes back to you

And you, you know that it's true
After all we've been through
There's nothing that I wouldn't do

Stand by me
And I would gladly give up everything

Repeat chorus

Guitar solo

Repeat chorus

Time ain't nothing but time
It's a verse with no rhyme
Man, it all comes down to you

Just Older
B. Falcon, J. Bon Jovi

Hey, man, it's been a while
Do you remember me?
When I hit the streets I was 17
A little wild, a little green
I've been up and down and in between
After all these years and miles and memories
I'm still chasing dreams
But I ain't looking over my shoulder

Chorus
I like the bed I'm sleeping in
It's just like me, it's broken in
It's not old -- just older
Like a favorite pair of torn blue jeans
This skin I'm in it's alright with me
It's not old -- just older

It's good to see your face
You ain't no worse for wear
Breathing that California air
When we took on the world
We were young and brave
We got secrets that we'll take to the grave
And we're standing here shoulder to shoulder

Repeat chorus

I'm not old enough to sing the blues
But I wore the holes in the soles of these shoes
You can roll the dice 'til they call your bluff
But you can't win until you're not afraid to lose, yeah

Solo

Well, I look in the mirror
I don't hate what I see
There's a few more lines staring back at me
Now the nights have grown a little bit colder
Hey man, I gotta run
You take care
If you see coach T. tell him I've cut my hair
I kept my faith
I still believe I’m just…
Repeat chorus

Mystery Train
B. Falcon, J. Bon Jovi

There are days when she's a whisper
Nights when she's a scream
A reason to wake up in the morning
To close your eyes and dream

She'll curse you like a sailor
And wound you with her eyes
She always makes it better
But won't apologize

You know everything about her but don't know her at all

Chorus
She's a ride on a mystery train
To a place you've never been before
Better hold on tight to that mystery train
You're not in Kansas anymore
She's a ride
Mystery train

She cries because she's happy
She sings songs when she's mad
Like a stiff drink when you need it
She's good at being bad

And long before you knew her you knew she was the one

Repeat chorus

Solo

I know everything about her but don't know her at all

Repeat chorus

She's a ride
On a mystery train

Save the World
J. Bon Jovi

I never went to college
I don't have a degree
Let's say I went to night school
I learned all I know on the streets
I wasn't born a rich man
I ain't got no pedigree
The sweat on this old collar
That's my Ph.D.

It comes down to this
I wouldn't exist
Without you it ain't worth the grind
I'd fight for one kiss
On a night like this
You make me feel I could fly, like

Chorus
I can save the world
Since the night your love saved me
Maybe I can't save the world
But as long as you believe
Maybe I can save the world

I've gotta confess
Sometimes I'm a mess
Sometimes I step out of line
Like this old tattoo
I ain't shiny or new
With you by my side nothing matters

Repeat chorus

Guitar solo

They can say it's blind love
But it's a fool who don't believe
That I'd fly all the way to the moon
Just to walk you down your street

I can save the world
Since the night your love saved me
Maybe I can't save the world
But as long as you believe

Our love is even stronger
Than God hoped it could be
Baby, all it takes is
Just a little faith in me
To feel like
I can save the world
I can save the world

Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

Dressed up for a big date
Like Halloween day but it was Fourth of July now
A car crash with a suitcase and a painted face
She was one of a kind
She wears a plastic crown like Cinderella
And roller skates in bed

He rides the Greyhound from his hometown
When he comes around 'cause they don't let him drive now
Mixed up as a milkshake
But make no mistake
They're shooting for the stars

Chorus
You and me
We're invincible together
We can be oh so tragical, whatever
Dressed up just like Ziggy but he couldn't play guitar
Captain Crash and the beauty queen from Mars

Share a toothpick, trading lipstick
Watching traffic for days at the diner
Holding hands, making big plans
Playing Superman, he was wearing eyeliner
Another local legend and his longtime lucky charm

Repeat chorus

They're drunk on love as you can get
Getting high on lust and cigarettes
Living life with no regrets
At least they're gonna try to fly

Chorus
You and me
We're invincible together
We can be oh so tragical, whatever
We're Sid and Nancy
Fred and Ginger
Clyde and Bonnie
Liz and Richard
Kurt and Courtney
Bacall and Bogie
Joltin' Joe and Ms. Monroe
Here's Captain Crash and the beauty queen from Mars
Captain Crash and the beauty queen from Mars

She's A Mystery
Stuart Peter, Gerg Wells, J. Bon Jovi

She won't let me buy her jewelry
She don't want things that she can keep
She wears wild flowers in her hair
Then throws them to the sea
She's the beginning and the end of me but

Chorus
She's a mystery
My most beautiful regret
I will never understand her
She's a mystery

I still don't know what to call her
She says that words don't mean a thing
She changes her name every day
And lies all the time
I feel lucky to call her mine but

Chorus
She's a mystery
My most beautiful regret
I will never understand her
She's a mystery
The only promise I can keep
Even in my dreams she ruins me

She's anything in the world
That you cannot explain
But when she throws me a smile
It's like fire in the rain but

Repeat chorus

She's a mystery
There's no defense
It's innocence
But she won't let you see
'Cause she's a mystery

I Got the Girl
J. Bon Jovi

It feels like I'm walkin' on air
Walk down our street
When the neighbors stop to watch us going by
You can hear 'em talking (let them talk)
Sometimes I think that you're the only reason
The sun still shines (when it shines)
And when this wicked world starts bringing me down
I tell myself that I'm one lucky guy

Chorus
I got the girl (holding all the cards)
I got the girl (she's a work of art)
I got the girl (who's gonna break my heart)

She likes to wear her stripe with her plaids
Won't brush her hair (I swear)
She don't like wearing shoes in December
But I don't care what she wears

Repeat chorus

If I was a holy man I'd get down on my knees
So the angels that watch over her would give a break to me
Holy Mother of saint bubble gum and Sister band-aid knees
Won't you please pray for the ones like me

But the truth is someday
Somebody is gonna take her from me
But the queen of hearts will always be
A five-year-old princess to me (to me)

Repeat chorus

Chorus 2:
I got the girl (she's gonna leave her mark)
I got the girl (she's a work of art)
I got the girl (she's gonna break your heart)
I got the girl, oh yeah
I got the girl, I got the girl
She’s gonna…I got the girl, yeah
I got the girl, I got the girl
I got the girl

One Wild Night
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora, D. Child

It's a hot night, the natives are restless
We're sweating by the light of the moon
There's a voodoo mojo brewing at the go-go
That would knock a witch off her broom

We slither on in and shed our skin
Make our way into the bump and the grind
I'm passing by, she gives me the eye
So I stop to give her a light

Na-na-na-na-na-na….alright!

Chorus
One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)
One wild night (24 hours of midnight)
One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone
And she left my heart with vertigo)
One wild, one wild, one wild, one wild night

Havin' as much fun as you can in your clothes
Margarita had me feelin' alright
Just might be I found religion
I've been on my knees for half of the night
I'm rolling the bones with Jimmy 'no dice'
Gonna take him for a couple weeks' pay
”Man, if you lose this roll I take your girlfriend home”
So I stopped
But you're not gonna believe who comes walking out

Chorus 2
One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)
One wild night (24 hours of midnight)
One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone
And she left my heart with vertigo)
One wild night (hey, c'est la vie)
One wild night (welcome to the party)
One wild night (life is for the living so
You gotta live it up, come on let's go)
One wild, one wild, one wild, one wild night

Guitar solo

Na-na-na-na-na-na…

Repeat chorus 2

One wild night, one wild night

One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)
One wild night (24 hours of midnight)
One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone)
One wild, one wild, one wild, one wild night

I Could Make A Living Out of Loving You

If there's something that needs fixing
I'm the man to see
Look me up, I'm listed
Just check under "B"
If you're ever on the spot
Well, I'm good with my hands
24-7 I'm your handyman

Odd jobs, hard jobs, anything under the sun
Big jobs, small jobs, baby

Chorus
I'd be a rich man, it's true
If I could make a living out of lovin' you
These two hands know what to do
If I could make a living out of lovin' you
I could make a living out of lovin' you
Until the work is finished
Well, I don't get paid
I don't mind getting dirty
That's my middle name
I'm in the service business
So I understand
Call me 24-7, I'm your handyman

Odd jobs, hard jobs, anything under the sun
Big jobs, small jobs, baby

Chorus:
I'd be a rich man, it's true
If I could make a living out of lovin' you
These two hands know what to do
If I could make a living out of lovin' you
If I could make a living out of lovin' you

Solo

Tough jobs, rough jobs, say where and when
I'll leave you my card, call when you need me again
Odd jobs, hard jobs, baby

Chorus
I'd be a rich man, it's true
If I could make a living out of lovin' you
These two hands know what to do
If I could make a living out of lovin' you
I'd be a rich man, it's true
I could make a living out of lovin' you
I'm a rich man
I could make a living out of lovin' you

Neurotica

Looking like a train wreck
Sipping on her long neck
This ain't no model-actress
She's attitude and accent (alright)

Angel flying solo
Must have gone and sold your halo
She's accidental innocence
And white trash elegance (alright)

She's all mixed up
Lays in bed 'til 3
All messed up
She's eccentricity

Chorus:
Neurotica
Lay your love all over me
Come on, baby, go a little crazy on me
Erotica
Every school boy's fantasy
Not your ordinary woman
But she's extraordinary to me

She got a daily new addiction
A walking contradiction
Chain smoking cigarettes
Talking to her silhouette (alright)

All mixed up
A little out of time
All messed up
But she don't really mind

Chorus:
Neurotica
Lay your love all over me
Come on, baby, go a little crazy on me
Erotica
Every school boy's fantasy
She's not your ordinary woman
But she's extraordinary to me

Alright (no Jane or Gloria)
Alright (she's schizophoria)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And when I call her I got to call her
And when I call her I call her

Solo

Chorus:
Neurotica
Lay your love all over me
Come on, baby, go a little crazy on me
Erotica
Every school boy's fantasy
Not your ordinary woman
But she's extraordinary to me
