Whitesnake

Whitesnake is a British rock band, founded in 1978 by David Coverdale after his departure from his previous band, Deep Purple. Their early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple, but by the mid 1980s they had moved to a more commercial hard rock style. Four of the band's earliest albums reached the top 10 in the UK, with Ready an' Willing (1980), Come an' Get It (1981), Saints & Sinners (1982) and Slide It In (1984). The band's 1987 self-titled album was their most commercially successful worldwide, and contained three of their most recognisable songs, "Here I Go Again", "Still of the Night" and "Is This Love". In 1988, Whitesnake was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group. In 2005, Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard ro… more »

I'm down on love
An' I don't give a damn,
I take my chances
Whenever I can
Like a lamb to the slaughter,
Another sacrifice,
For giving love to woman
With a heart stone cold as ice

I'm down on love
An' I'm clean out of pain,
I ain't no stranger
To the crying game
Too scared to suffer,
An' too blind to see,
But, I played with fire
An' I got what was coming to me

Now, one more heartache
Don't bother me,
Just one more lonely night
To drown in misery 

I am a victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love
Victim of love, victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love 

I'm down on love
An' I feel like a fool
To beg for mercy
'Cause I broke the rules
So do me no favors
With your cool advice,
I know the losing cost,
An' I'll pay the price 

One more heartache
Don't bother me
One more lonely night
To drown in misery 

I am a victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love 

Victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love 

One more heartache
Don't bother me
One more lonely night
To drown in misery 

Victim of love,
A victim of love,
Lord, I never thought
I'd be a victim of love
