Bitter Wine

Bon Jovi

 

We met some time ago, when we were almost young
It never crossed my mind to ask, where did you come from ?
I didnít have much money, so I stole you a rose
You were dressed like an orphan, in Salvation Army clothes

Once you were my inspiration, but, that riverís run dry
What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

I know I wasnít funny, but you laughed at all my jokes
When I was choking on the words to say,
You showed me your finger down my throat
The first night I said I loved you, you told me to go to hell
You were giving me head, on that cheeky,
Old bed at the Olí Duval Motel

Once you were my inspiration, but, that riverís run dry
What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

Once you were my inspiration, but, that riverís run dry
What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

I would drink of your river, it would always get me high
What was once my salvation, now tastes like bitter wine

I never thought Iíd lose ya, no, Iíd rather go blind
I thought I saw the future, but the fortune teller lied
I guess she lied

Just like everything, even good love has to die
Ainít no sympathy when it waves goodbye, no one even cried
We were one of a kind

I would drink of your river, it would always get me high
What was once my salvation, now tastes like bitter wine

I never thought Iíd lose ya, no, Iíd rather go blind
I thought I saw the future, but the fortune teller lied
I guess she lied
