Bon Jovi — Every Word Was A Piece Of My Heart lyrics

J. 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, I guess the nights just bringing me down

Theres not love, theres no hate
I left them there for you to take
But, know that every word was a piece of my heart

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

Theres not love, theres no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart
Have I said too much
Maybe I haven't said enough
But know that every word was a piece of my heart

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

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

Theres not love, theres no hate
I left them there for you to take
But know that every word was a piece of my heart
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 nights just bringing me down
