"Hearts Breaking Even" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Desmond Child....
It's been a cold, cold, cold, cold night tonight
And I can't get you off my mind
God knows I've tried
Did I throw away the best part of my life
When I cut you off, did I cut myself with the same damn knife
Hide my tears in the pouring rain, had my share of hurt and pain
Don't say my name, run away, cause it's all in vain

My heart's breaking even, now there's no use we even try
Hey I cried, Yeah I lied, Hell I almost died
Both got our reasons, let's just fold the cards and say good-bye
It's all right, just two hearts breaking even tonight

It's been a long, long, long, long, long time
Since I've had your love here in my hands
We didn't understand it, we couldn't understand it
But, nothing's fair in love and hate
You lay it all down and walk away , before it's too late
We danced all night as the music played
The sheets got tangled in the mess we made
There in the stains , we remain,
No one left to blame

My heart's breaking even, now there's no use we even try
Hey I cried, Yeah I lied, Hell I almost died
Both got our reasons, let's just fold the cards and say good-bye
It's all right, just two hearts breaking even tonight

Go on, get on with your life, Yeah - I'll get on with mine
Broken hearts can't call the cops, yeah it's the perfect crime
Twisting and turning the night keeps me yearning
I'm burning alive
I'm paying the price again
But I'll see the light again


My heart's breaking even, now there's no use we even try
Hey I cried, Yeah I lied, Hell I almost died
Both got our reasons, let's just fold the cards and say good-bye
It's alright, just two hearts breaking even tonight

Yeah
Yeah

Oh I'm going, gonna walk out the door
Saying you don't care for me anymore
That's alright, just two hearts breaking even tonight

    General CommentThis song is a great song because of the message behind it. They aren't good together, except in the physical part of the relationship, which is suggested by 'Sheets got tangled in the mess we made....'. I love this song cause Jon's voice is really great for it, and the lyrical content is once again superb. Great job guys.
