"My Guitar Lies Bleeding In My Arms" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richard Sambora....
Misery likes company I like the way that sounds
I've been trying to find the meaning
So I can write it down
Staring out the window it's such a long way down
I'd like to jump but I'm afraid to hit the ground

I can't write a love song the way I fell today
I can't sing no song of hope
I've got nothing to say
Life is feeling kind of strange
Since you went away
I sing this song to you wherever you are
As my guitar lies bleeding in my arms

I'm tired of watching TV it makes me want to scream
Outside the world is burning
Man it's so hard to believe
Each day you know you're dying
From the cradle to the grave
I get so numb sometimes that I just feel the pain

I can't write a love song the way I feel today
I can't sing no song of hope
I got nothing to say
Life is feeling kind of strange
Strange enough these days
I send this song to you whoever you are
As my guitar lies bleeding in my arms

Staring at the paper I don't know what to write
I'll have my cigarette-well, turn out the lights
Maybe tomorrow I'll feel a different way
But here in my delusion I don't know what to say

I can't write a love song the way I feel today
I can't sing no song of hope
I've got nothing to say
And I can't fight the feelings
That are burning in my veins
I send this song to you wherever you are
As my guitar lies bleeding

I can't write a love song the way I feel today
I can't sing no song of hope
There's no one left to save
And I can't fight the feelings buried in my brains
I send this song to you wherever you are
As my guitar lies bleeding in my arms

    General Commentexcellent lyrics, but i think people under rate this song, it is better than what most peple think, though it is depressive everyone can relate to it

    General CommentIt's a song about his girl leaving him, he has lost himself, stuck alone with the words he never said, now after he realises it's over he looks around but he's alone with all those unspoken words and a guitar in his hands...

    General CommentIt's a beautiful song. And I agree that it's a little under-rated. It one of my favorites.

    General CommentThis is all substance, no flash. Anyone who thinks Jon Bon Jovi is just a pretty face needs to hear this song.
