Bon Jovi Bitter Wine Lyrics

We met some time ago, when we were almost young

It never crossed my mind to ask, where did you come from?

I didn’t 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 river’s run dry

What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

I know I wasn’t funny, but you laughed at all my jokes

When I was chaking on the words to say

You shoved your finger down my throat

The first night I said I loved you, you told me to go to hell

You were giving he head, on that creeky

Old bed at the Ol’Duvol Motel

Once you were my inspiration, but, that river’s run dry

What was once holy water, tastes like bitter wine

Once you were my inspiration, but, that river’s 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 I’d love ya, no – I’d 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

Ain’t 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 I’d love ya, no – I’d rather go blind

I thought I saw the future, but the fortune teller lied

I guess she lied
