Labour of Love lyrics by Bon Jovi



A song taken from Bon Jovi's album This House is Not For Sale.

But what is a labour of love? It is a task done for pleasure, not reward or where a reward comes secondary to the pleasure gained. In a sense, Jon Bon Jovi's mission of building the House of Bon Jovi is that labour of love.

The band loves making music, meeting fans, touring and just being rock stars.

The song's lyrics are however more pointedly about how the relationship has been built between the two lovers.






Lyrics

Smoke stack blowing
There's a fire in the sky
Fahrenheit rising, oh, higher than high
Pressure's building up, sparks are gonna fly
I know where this is going
When I look into your eyes
I know where this is going
When I look into your eyes

Sweet sweat's rolling
Down the middle of your spine
Bodies move together
Perfect rhythm and time
Baby say my name
I'll write yours in the sky
Higher than a rocket
In the Fourth of July
Higher than a rocket
In the Fourth of July
It's good, it's good, it's good to be alive


Its a full time job, the work's never done
Twenty-four seven, it's a labor of love
Yeah, everything I got, it's all about us
Baby this ain't working
It's a labor of love
Baby this ain't working
It's a labor of love

Only fools count treasure
In silver and gold
I don't want for nothing
That these hands can hold
If you need something done
Put it on the list
And if I need some sugar
I'll get it from your lips
If I need some sugar
I'll get it from your lips

It's good, it's good, it's good to be alive

Its a full time job, the work's never done
Twenty-four seven, it's a labor of love
Yeah, everything I got, it's all about us
Baby this ain't working
It's a labor of love
Baby this ain't working
It's a labor of love

One taste of your lips
Every night, every day
I know every curve, but it's never the same
If love is a fire, I'll go down in flames
I wanna die in your arms
Hearing you say my name
I wanna die in your arms
Hearing you say my name
I wanna die in your arms
Hearing you say my name

Its a full time job, the work's never done
Twenty-four seven, it's a labor of love
Yeah, everything I got, it's all about us
Baby this ain't working, it's a labor of love
Its a full time job, the work's never done
Twenty-four seven, it's a labor of love
Give everything I've got, I can't get enough
Baby this ain't working, it's a labor of love
Baby this ain't working, it's a labor of love
