This ain't a love song (J.B.Jovi, R.Sambora & D.Child)
Intro E | B | D | A | Am | E | B
Verse1
I s[E]hould have seen it coming when the roses died,[B]
s[D]hould have seen the end of the summer in your eyes[A]
[Am]I should have listened when you said[E] good night you r[B]eally meant good bye
[E]Baby ain't it funny, how you ever learn to fa[B]ll
[D]You're really on your knees, when you think yo[A]u're standing tall
[Am]But only fools are 'know-[E]it-alls' and I pla[B]yed that fool for you
PreChorus 1
[A]I cried and I cried there were n[C#m]ights that I died for you baby[B]
E C#m B -> Lick 1
I tried and I tried to deny that your love drove me crazy, baby
Chorus 1
[E]If the love that I got for you is gone, [B]if the river I cried[C#m] ain't that long[A]
[E]Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong, t[B]his ain't a love s[A]ong
Verse2
Baby, I thought you and me would stand the test of time
Like we got away with the perfect crime,
But, we were just a legend in my mind I guess that I was blind
Remember those nights dancing at the masquerade,
The clowns wore smiles that wouldn't fade
You and I were the renegades, some things never change
PreChorus 2
It made me so mad 'cause I wanted it bad for us baby
Now it's so sad that whatever we had, ain't worth saving. -> Lick 1
Chorus 1 -> Lick 2

If the pain that I'm feeling so strong, is the reason that I'm holding on
