Bon Jovi: You Give Love A Bad Name

Posted on: December 27, 2008

Shot through the heart

And you’re to blame

Darling, you give love a bad name


An angel’s smile is what you sell

You promised me heaven

And put me through hell

Chains of love got a hold on me

When passion’s a prison

You can’t break free


Oh, you’re a loaded gun, yeah

Oh, there’s nowhere to run

No one can save me

The damage is done


Shot through the heart

And you’re to blame

You give love a bad name (Bad name)

I play my part and you play your game

You give love a bad name (Bad name)

You give love a bad name


Paint your smile on your lips

Blood red nails on your fingertips

A school boy’s dream, you act so shy

Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye


Oh, you’re a loaded gun

Oh, there’s nowhere to run

No one can save me

The damage is done


Shot through the heart

And you’re to blame

You give love a bad name

I play my part and you play your game

You give love a bad name (Bad name)

You give love, oh


Ohh, shot through the heart

And you’re to blame

You give love a bad name

I play my part and you play your game

You give love a bad name (Bad name)


Shot through the heart

And you’re to blame

You give love a bad name (Bad name)

I play my part and you play your game

You give love a bad name (Bad name)


(Whoa) You give love

(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)

(Whoa) You give love

(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)

(Whoa) You give love

(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)

(Whoa) You give love

(Whoa) You give love (A bad name)

Aren’t these lyrics simply amazing? Thought I should share since it is one of my all time Bon Jovi favourites.

The lyricists were geniuses. With the lines “Chains of love got a hold on me/When passion’s a prison/You can’t break free”, it’s practically poetry in motion!

As a treat, I will post Blake Lewis’s fetching rendition below.
Enjoy!
