Bon Jovi Novocaine Lyrics

You can take back all your secrets

We’ll divide up all the lies

Keep all the pictures in their frames

Cut me out, yeah I’ll be fine

Tell the neighbours all my feelings

Go on and give away all my pride

It’s hard to laugh and cry, live and die every night

Keep your rolodex of friends

And all the remnants can be mind

I guess there’ll be no happy endings

When once upon is doing time

There’s a different kind of meaning now

To living on a prayer

Some don’t seem to notice

And the rest don’t seem to care


I tell myself I (feel no pain)

But I’m feeling the pain (walk away)

Can’t walk away

I’m hanging on the ropes of hope

It’s getting hard to cope you know

When you’re the needle running

through my veins

I’ve changed my name to novocaine

You put my favorite belongings in a box in the garage (let’s get this straight)

You burned my favorite sweats from high school

Tried to sell my muscle car (that’s not OK)

You’re mother’s gonna visit for a couple months this year

They say you do the crime, you do the time

It’s all so clear


Well things ain’t what they used to be

It’s a sleepless, self-help century

I’m up to here with Dr. Phil and the modern man in me

[Chorus x2]

Novocaine [x3]
