Staring At Your Window With A Suitcase In My Hand Lyrics

by Jon Bon Jovi

You think you know me just because you know my name
You think you seen me, you've seen every line on my face
You want to want me just because I say that I want you
Does it matter if anything I'm saying is the truth
You need somebody, somebody to hold on to
But this ain't the movies and we ain't heroes

Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
The streetlights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
My boots just keep on walkin' but my heart don't understand
Why I'm staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand

I said, "I want you but when we woke up one of us is crying"
You rolled over and all you said was, "Man, I think I'm dying"
Our song is over, this band of gold has been feeling like a noose
You place your bets 'cause no one thinks they'll lose

Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
The streetlights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
My boots just keep on walkin' but my heart don't understand
Why I'm staring at your window

The light of love can blind you 'til you cover up your eyes
And you try to find the reason not to say goodbye
It's the curse of every sailor standing on dry land
Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand

The night is fading like my old tattoo
A heart and a dagger that says "Forever"

Staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
The streetlights buzz as the cars roll by and the moon don't give a damn
I'm getting tired of talkin', even I don't understand
Why I'm staring at your window with a suitcase in my hand
