"Destination Anywhere" (1997)

Queen Of New Orleans Lyrics – Jon Bon Jovi

She said: "Baby our love's just like your songs
The beat ain't bad but the words are all wrong
It's time to pack my bags, it's time to just move on"
She sang: "Johnny, I'm gone, gone, gone"
And she was gone, yeah

Me and Leigh met summer of '95
In a burgundy dress lookin' finer than a French wine
A Cajun queen with another side
She was a schoolboy's dream, I was out of my mind
She was lookin' fine
She said: "You wanna drive me home"
But what I didn't know ......

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) it was almost like a dream (almost like a dream)

That night I made my move
Man I fell hard when I put my hands in her cookie jar
She was more than a girl, she was a cabaret star
I was a deer in the lights of a speeding car
Nothing's what it seems, she was a Venus De Milo in her sister's jeans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) it was almost like a dream (almost like a dream)

[Guitar solo]

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing with the Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) I was dancing cheek to cheek in New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen down Bourbon Street

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing in the streets of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) nothing's what it seems in New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with a Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans
Ooh, ooh, (shalala) dancing with the Queen of New Orleans

Janie, Don't You Take Your Love To Town Lyrics – Jon Bon Jovi

Sitting here just watching you sleep
Wish I could slip inside and be in some technicolor dream
But the air's too thick for one of us to breathe
I'm not fool enough to think you couldn't live life without me

I didn't come this far to throw the towel in
I didn't fight this hard to walk away
If I ain't smart enough to say I'm sorry
It's just because the words got in the way

I remember how it used to be
I was you and you were me
We were more than just the same
Now these shoes don't fit, my skin's too tight
When you want a kiss, I take a bite
Let your heart call up the cops, read me my rights
Last night I drank enough to drown
Raise a toast to your good looks and to my health
Look, we both know how much I've let you down
Janie, don't you take your love to town

Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I'll beg, just don't walk away
Janie, don't you take your love to town

You deserve a shooter, a saint
Someone to give it to you straight
To find the soul through flesh and bone
My life's a treasure, full of sunny weather
But it's left me feeling cold
Now all you wanna do is take me home
I hated you, the night you said you loved me
I hated you, 'cause I couldn't love myself
I'm begging you now, baby please just hold me
I got one foot in, one foot off the ground

Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I'll beg, just don't walk away
Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love ...

[Guitar solo]

Sitting here while you're fast asleep
In the bathroom by the sink
Trying to write the right words down
I turn out the lights, close my eyes
There ain't no prayers or kiss goodnight
What I'll forget to say tomorrow, I'll say now
Janie, don't you take your love to town

Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I'll beg, just don't walk away
Janie, don't you take your love to town

Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I'll beg, just don't walk away
Janie, don't you take your love to town

Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love to town
If I gotta beg, I'll beg, just don't walk away
Janie, don't you take your love to town
Janie, don't you take your love

Midnight In Chelsea Lyrics – Jon Bon Jovi

The kids round here look just like sticks
They trade old licks with a beat up six
I just smile and catch the groove

Gothic girls all dressed in black
Serious as heart attacks
Takes a little bit of getting used to

The old man with the whisky stains
Lost the night, forgot his name
His poor wife will sleep alone again
And it ain't hard to understand
Why she's holding onto her own hand

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
No one's asking me for favors (shalalala, shalala)
No one's looking for a savior
They're too busy ... saving me (shalalala, shalala)

I've seen a lone sloane ranger drive
Seems her chauffeur took a dive
And sold her secrets to the Sun

And later in a magazine
I finally figured what it means
To be a saint, not a queen

Two lustful lovers catch a spark
Chase their shadows in the dark
Someone's getting off tonight

A big red bus that's packed so tight disappears in a trail of light
Somewhere someone's dreaming baby it's alright....

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
No one's asking me for favors (shalalala, shalala)
No one's looking for a savior
They're too busy saving me (shalalala, shalala)
(shalalala, shalala)
Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
No one's pinned their dreams on me
No one's asking me to bleed
I'm the man I wanna be
When Chelsea girls sing
Shalalala, shalalala
Shalalala, shalala, oh
Shalalala, shalalala
Shalalala, shalala, oh, oh ...

It's morning when I go to sleep
In the distant dawn a church bell rings
Another day is coming on

A baby's born, an old man dies
Somewhere young lovers kiss good bye
I leave my soul and just move on
And wish that I was there to sing this song

[Guitar solo]

(shalalala, shalala)
(shalalala, shalala)
It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
Oh, midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala)
No one's asking me for favors (shalalala, shalala)
No one's looking for a savior
They're too busy saving me (shalalala, shalala)

It's midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala) woh (shalalala, shalala) yeah
No one's pinned their dreams on me
No one's asking me to bleed
I'm the man I wanna be
The man I wanna be, the man I wanna be (shalalala, shalala)
Midnight in Chelsea (shalalala, shalala...)

Ugly Lyrics – Jon Bon Jovi

If you're ugly, I'm ugly too
In your eyes the sky's a different blue
If you could see yourself like others do
You'd wish you were as beautiful as you, yeah

And I wish I was a camera sometimes
So I could take your picture with my mind
Put it in a frame for you to see
How beautiful you really are to me

Ugly, ugly
All of us just feel like that some days
Ain't no rainbow in the sky, when you feel U.G.L.Y.
And that's ugly, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Ugly, ugly
All of us just feel like that some days
Ain't no rainbow in the sky, when you feel U.G.L.Y.
And that's ugly, ugly
All of us just feel like that some days
Ain't no cure that you can buy
When you feel U.G.L.Y.
And that's ugly

So if you're ugly, I'm ugly too
If you're a nut, then I must be a screw
If you could see yourself the way I do
You'd wish you were as beautiful as you, yeah
I wish I was as beautiful as you

Staring At Your Window Lyrics – Jon Bon Jovi

You think you know me just because you know my name
You think you see me 'cause you've seen every line on my face
You want to want me just because I say that I want you
But does it matter if anything I'm saying is the truth

You need somebody, somebody to hold onto
But this ain't the movies, and we ain't heroes

Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
The streetlights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
My boots just keep on walkin', but a heart don't understand
Why I'm staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand

I said that I want you, but when we woke up one of us was crying
You rolled over and all you said was, "Man, I think I'm dying"
Our song is over, this band of gold has been feeling like a noose
You place your bets 'cause no one thinks they'll lose

Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
The streetlights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
My boots just keep on walkin', but my heart don't understand
Why I'm staring at your window

The light of love can blind you 'til you cover up your eyes
And you try to find the reason not to say good bye
It's the curse of every sailor standing on dry land
Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand

[Guitar solo]

The night is fading like my old tattoo
A heart and a dagger that says "Forever"

Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
The streetlights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
I'm getting tired of talkin', even I don't understand
Why I'm staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand

Every Word Was A Piece Of My Heart Lyrics – Jon Bon Jovi

I've been staring at the page for what seems like days
I guess I put this one off for a while
Did I see a tear fall from your eyes ?
Or did you laugh so hard that you cried ?
When I served my secrets on a silver tray to you (hey now)
Hey now, I guess the night's just bringing me down

There's no love, there's no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart (hey now)

You've been the blood in my veins
The only one who knows my middle name
And the smiles, they came easy 'cause of you (hey now)
You know that I love you, but I hate you
'Cause I know I can never escape you
So let the choir sing for tonight I'm an easy mark (hey now)
Hey now, am I acting just a little too proud ?

There's no love, there's no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart (hey now)
Have I said too much
Maybe I haven't said enough
But know that every word was a piece of my heart (hey now)

Hush me darling, maybe I've lost my touch
Maybe I've lost my guts
There, is that truth enough ?
Hey now, hey now...

[Guitar solo]

You know these love letters mix with whisky
Just don't light a match when you kiss me
Though I'll blow away, you know I'll be back soon (hey now)
Hey now, hey now, hey now, am I talking just a little too loud ?

There's no love, there's no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart (hey now)
Have I said too much
Maybe I haven't said enough
But know that every word was a piece of my heart
Hey now, am I talking just a little too proud ?
Hey now, the night's just bringing me down
