This Ain't A Love Song
Bon Jovi
Album: These Days

I should have seen it coming when the roses died
I 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 we never ever learn to fall
You're really on your knees
You think you're standing tall
But only fools are know-it-alls
Yeah, I played that fool for you
2-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
1-If the love that I got for you's gone
If the river I cried ain't that long
Then I'm wrong, yes, I'm wrong
This ain't a love song
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
Clowns wore smiles that wouldn't fade
Baby, you and I we were renegades
Well, 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
(rpt 1, 2, 1)
If the pain that I'm feeling so strong
Is the reason I'm holding on
Then I'm wrong, well I'm wrong
This ain't a love song...
