Bon Jovi – Taking It Back lyrics

I've been away so long I hardly knew the place
Its been too long since I've been gone
Just like a rolling stone I aint got no home
But my boys are back in town

It's been two long years since I've been on the run
From lawyers lovers monies and a lawmans son
You thought it was the last that you heard of me
But you better back up to catch up with me

Cause I'm livin in the fast lane
Speedin like a speed train
Just before I fall, just before I fall off the track

Taking it back
I'm taking it back
Taking it back
You took it away took it away
All I can say is we're taking it back

I've been away so long its good to see your face
Barkeep wont you buy me a round?
We'll raise a glass to the good times past
Then we'll dance this damn place down

Taking it back(Repeat 3x)
