Love Bites Lyrics - Def Leppard

Review The Song (29)



If you've got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites

When you make love, do you look in the mirror?
Who do you think of?
Does he look like me?
Do you tell lies?
And say that it's forever?
Do you think twice, or just touch and see?
Ooh babe
Oh yeah
When you're alone, do you let go?
Are you wild and willin', or is it just for show?
Ooh C'mon

I don't wanna touch you too much baby
'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
sponsored links
So I don't wanna be there when you decide to break it
No!

Chorus
(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringin' me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
It's no surprise
(Love begs, love pleads)
It's what I need

When I'm with you, are you somewhere else?
Am I gettin' thru or do you please yourself?
When you wake up, will you walk out?
It can't be love if you throw it about
Ooh babe

I don't wanna touch you too much baby
'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy
Oh

Chorus
(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringin' me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
It's no surprise
(Love begs, love pleads)
It's what I need

(Guitar Solo)

Oh yeah!

I don't wanna touch you too much baby
'Cos making love to you might drive me crazy
I know you think that love is the way you make it
So I don't wanna be there when you decide to break it
No!

(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringin' me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)

(Love bites, love bleeds)
It's bringin' me to my knees
(Love lives, love dies)
It's no surprise
(Love begs, love pleads)
It's what I need

If you've got love in your sights
Watch out, love bites

unreal life?! | Reviewer: Erick Jordaan | 7/9/13

I was still a child when mother usually listened to them every weekend. We live in Pretoria (Gauteng) South Africa. But every Friday me and my mother drove to Bethlehem (Freestate) South Africa, go visit my step-father. Every time we went, I visited my step-fathers brother children. And my mother stayed at my step-fathers mothers house. To this date, I don't know why I visited them? Because they usually made fun of me and my circumstances. And trough the week-end we went to visit different kinds of people. Some were scum-bags, some were drug users, some had a bad attitude, child molesters. And on the Sunday we travelled back to Pretoria. Listening to Def leppard and Jon Bon Jovi and singing in the car on their tapes. I don't really know who my real father is, because when my Mother got pregnant with me, she only was 17. So my whole life so far has been a big adventure.

you cant change what people think/hear | Reviewer: Jeremy | 11/4/11

let me say that i am a fan of the band. i grew up in the 80's. i love most of their songs. i still love this song for the song. but i hear what i hear. and i clearly hear "Jesus of Nazareth, go to hell" i dont agree with it. and your not going to change my mind. but im not bashing anybody for hearing or thinking it says anything else. i think its so comical that people on hear talk like they know the band personally. and know for fact what it says. lets just agree that we disagree and leave it at that.

what I think | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/6/11

You people get your heads out of your a&&!! Anyone that actually listens to the very end of love bites can clearly hear that it says "Jesus of Nazereth go to hell". I like most of def leppards songs but I sure don't like their beliefs!!

true to the heart | Reviewer: peter sandy sevilla | 7/4/10

i'd been working in the radio for quite a long time. and if there is one song that tell's me the exact definition of a real love? i should say this is it. it's true love sometimes bites.
given that you do not know how to cheerish and care for it.

amused by the holy rollers | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/21/10

this song doesnt say crap about going to hell you fools...its repeating the very first line of if you have love in your sites watch out it bites then dude says bloody hell. nothing about jesus. get your bible thumping rock and roll hating selves a life and stop trying to warp every rock song into something evil.

I love def leppard | Reviewer: james | 9/27/09

def leppard is one of the "safest" rock groups out there. If any Christian has to knock this song saying love bites. they are saying that some times it does... Not Love stinks....
Im a Pastor. I listen to Christian Rock. I play the drums. I would include some songs from Def Leppard in my reperatoire.. like loves bites...

I still like Pyromania...Its better to burn out than fade away. Yeah, burn out bright.

Christians, message out to you. Dont get uppity thinking youre all that. We are talking humility..equal to all, better than none... youre wrath means nothing to anyone if youre going to get on a preachy high horse.

Great Song | Reviewer: JJ | 7/14/09

U people just dont take ur time to understand the meaning of that line. They r just explaining the nature of love. How u enjoy it but also can hurt. That simple. It's not saying dont do it, but realize all u will feel during that experience.

Oh wow | Reviewer: kayla | 12/28/08

I actually turned this song up at the end and he does say that! What the !?!? Why would they do that to a perfectly good song?
Aside from that last line that aparently was taken out(?) it was a great song. Why would they do that though? It doesn't even have anything to do with the song!!!!

Love Bites | Reviewer: antonio | 11/28/08

This song is my wife's favorite song since she heard it on an FM station. She introduces that songs to me and i really appreciate the way joe elliot of def leppard sang that song. Really a piece of timesless rock ballad.

Love does bite it's true!!!!! | Reviewer: ashley | 11/3/08

Hi def leppard you are one of my favorite bands I love that song love bites in my eyes its true. I don't no why love bites so much. I guess when you get hurt one or two many times you'll hate love to. You won't want to try to go out and find love. You'll just quit looking after the third time you get hurt. So thats my most favorite song.

funny | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/08

"Deff Leoppard needs "JESUS" in their lives as well as their souls"

lmao thanks for making me laugh, at least. You sound like someone that shoves Christianity pamphlets into people's faces at bus terminals.

This is one of the only songs that can move me to tears.

No religious mentions in Love Bites, you fools. | Reviewer: Jenna | 5/21/08

The last line of Love Bites may sound like something it's not, but that's because of all of the voice effects used. Read the Def Leppard FAQ. It's actually the producer Mutt Lange saying "Yes it does, bloody hell." Referring to "Love Bites".

Love, what????????? | Reviewer: Jen | 5/1/08

This is an awesome song that my husband and I have always viewed as 'our song'. He took me to a field one night when we were dating and played this song and we danced under the stars to it. That was years ago but now, I can hardly believe that I just now read the lyrics to this song. The last line is totally unacceptable. I just called my husband and told him we now have to get a new song! I am not a holly roller either but, I just will never be able to listen to this song the same. It just goes to show-we mostly listen to the music for the rythm and how it makes us feel and not so much for the lyrics, heck we don't even know what they are most of the time!

LOVE BITES JUST LIKE THE SONG!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/8/08

Okay so Im not the only person thats heard the last line of that song.
Does anybody else find this disturbing or are we so ignorent to hear it.
I must say that I find it extremly ofensive as so should everyone. I have been a fan of Deff Leoppard for many years till I heard that line of LOVE BITES. Do I've heard this song a million times never did I pay attention to the end thats until a friend brought it to my attention I was sick to my stomach to say the least. Deff Leoppard needs "JESUS" in their lives as well as their souls. May "GOD" forgive them for their stupidity.
