Bon Jovi — Santa Fe lyrics

They say that no man is an island
And good things come to those who wait
But the things I hear are there
Just to remind me
Every dog will have his day

The spirits they intoxicate me
I watched them infiltrate my soul
They try to say it's too late for me
Tell my guns I'm coming home

I swear I'm gonna live forever
Tell my maker he can wait
I'm riding somewhere south of heaven
Heading back to santa fe
Its judgment day in santa fe

Once I was promised absolution
There's only one solution for my sins
You gotta face your ghosts and know
With no illusions
That only one of you is going home again

And I blame this world for making
A good man evil
Its this world that can drive a
Good man mad
And it's this world that turns a killer
Into a hero
Well I blame this world for making
A good man bad

Now I aint getting into heaven
If the devil has his way
I swear I'm gonna live forever
Heading back to santa fe
Got debts to pay in santa fe
Its judgment day in santa fe

Solo

So I save a prayer
When I need it most
To the father, son
And the holy ghost
And I'll sign it from a sinner
With no name

When I meet my maker
Will he close the book
On the hearts I broke
And the lives I took
Will he walk away
Cause my souls
Its too late to save

Now I aint getting into heaven
If the devil has his way
I swear I'm gonna live forever
Heading back to santa fe
Got debts to pay in santa fe
Its judgment day in santa fe
