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

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
