Aerosmith

Aerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "The Bad Boys from Boston" and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band." Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has come to also incorporate elements of pop,heavy metal, and rhythm and blues, and has inspired many subsequent rock artists. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. Guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with singer Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano, and formed Aerosmith. In 1971, Tabano was replaced by Brad Whitford, and the band began developing a following in Boston. more »

There goes my old girlfriend, there's another diamond ring
And, uh, 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 thinking you lost 
Ev'rything that was good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me what it takes to let you go
Yeah
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 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 thinking you lost 
Ev'rything that was good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me what it takes to let you go
Guitar
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 dyin' when you're cryin' for me
Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go
Uh, tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night without thinkin' you lost 
Ev'rything that was good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me who's to blame for thinkin' twice
No no no no
'Cause I don't wanna burn in paradise
Oo
Let go, let go, let go
I don't wanna burn in paradise
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, 
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, 
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, 
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, 
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
