fear lyrics – bon jovi

i see you lookin’ over your shoulder
tell me who do you think is out there
you’re reachin’ for your four leaf clover
but baby there ain’t no luck down there

i swear that there’s no heart in this city
it’s here the slogan reads “do your time”
everybody’s doin’ their sentence
it’s just there ain’t n*body here
who knows just what’s the crime

i watched my father live a lie here
i’d rather die than fade away
i read the rules and yeah i know them
you ain’t ever gonna
make me play the game of

fear
fear
fear
of a new thing

running with the rats through the city
makes you feel like you’re a partner in crime
girl, once you were young and pretty
now won’t you stop to watch that little girl did

hey baby, won’t you stop and hear me
just bein’ here we’re breathing heart attacks yeah
we can run and chase the setting sun baby
we can run and we won’t ever look back now

take my hand i know we’ll make it
i’ll let nothin’ slow us down
i know you want to curse
this place there’s only one thing
that’s stopping us now is

fear, fear, fear
of a new thing
fear, fear, fear
of the br*ss ring

you ain’t one for takin’ chances
you work and you live and you breathe 9 to 5
still that’s what you call livin’
man, that’s surviving to me, surviving is livin’ to die in

fear, fear, fear
of a new thing
fear, fear, fear
of the br*ss ring

fear, fear, fear
fear, fear, fear
fear, fear, fear
