Aerosmith – What It Takes lyrics

There goes my old girlfriend

There’s another diamond ring

And a all those late night promises

I guess they don’t mean a thing

So baby, what’s the story

Did you find another man

Is it easy to sleep in the bed that we made

When you don’t look back I guess

The feelings start to fade away

I used to feel your fire

But now it’s cold inside

And you’re back on the street

Like you didn’t miss a beat, yeah

Tell me what it takes to let you go

Tell me how the pain’s supposed to go

Tell me how it is that you can sleep

In the night, without thinkin’ you lost

Everything that was good in your life

To the toss of the dice

Tell me what it takes to let you go


Girl, before I met you, I was F. I. N. E – fine

But your love made me a prisoner

Yeah, my heart’s been doing time

You spent me up like money

Then you hung me out to dry

It was easy to keep all your lies in disguise

‘Cause you had me in deep

With the devil in your eyes



Tell me that you’re happy that you’re on your own

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Tell me that it’s better when you’re all alone

Tell me that your body doesn’t miss my touch

Tell me that my lovin’ didn’t mean that much

Tell me you ain’t dying

When you’re cryin’ for me

(Repeat Chorus)

Tell me who’s to blame for thinkin’ twice

‘Cause I don’t wanna burn in Paradise

Oh, let it go, let it go…

I don’t wanna burn….
