I played bon jovi tracks this saturday and I got struck again by how touching some of his lyrics can be. Coupled with his signature melody, it is no surprise that a lot of people like his songs. The above subject is the title of one of his songs. I had to search online for the lyrics since I cannot get it out of my head. This LSS has been going on and off for three days now. Below are the lyrics of this song, about young couple from different backgrounds struggling to make it in this world. Rumour has it that your daddy's coming down He's gonna pay the rent Tell me baby, is this as good as life is gonna get It feels like there's a stronger standing in these shoes But, I know I can't lose me, 'cause then I'd be losing you I know I promised baby I would be the one to make our dreams come true I ain't too proud of all the struggles And the hard times we've been through When this cold world comes between us Please tell me you'll be brave 'Cause I can realize the danger when forgiveness fades away If you don't love me - lie to me 'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe Let it all fall down around us, if that's what's meant to be Right now if you don't love me baby - lie to me Pour another cup of coffee Babe I got something to say to you I ain't got the winning ticket Not the one that's gonna pull us through No one said that it'd be easy Let your old man take you home But know that if you walk out on me that darling I'd be gone If you don't love me - lie to me 'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe Let it all fall down around us, if that's what's meant to be Right now if you can't love me baby - lie to me Baby, I can take it It's a b!tc#, but life's a roller coaster ride The ups and downs will make you scream sometimes It's hard believing that the thrill is gone But we got to go around again, so let's hold on If you don't love me - lie to me 'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe Let it all fall down around us If that's what's meant to be Right now if you can't love me baby - lie to me Lie to me Baby, I can take it C'mon lie to me Very touching, don't you agree?

I kind of liked Bon Jovi back then, but I guess some of his song's now do not match my taste anymore!LoL He's song's during the 80's up to the 90's are some of which I preferred listening to, but there's one song that I just can't get off of my mind after hearing it. The song's title was, "Thank You For Loving Me." I find the lyrics and the melody very inspiring, not to mention the great video they put in it!;)

I don't like Bon Jovi at all, and I am born and raised in his home state of New Jersey. I just cant get into him, not sure why. His older stuff was better though in my opinion. I dont really like it, but think it's better than the new bon jovi stuff. Thats just my opinion though :)

I use to be a big Bon Jovi fans. The last album that I bought from them and really listen to it was These Days. I still like them. It's true that a lot of their lyric are really touching. One of my favorite song is Living on a prayer. I just love that song. They still make very good music and I really like their new song,

Yes, I also like that album. I've been looking for a copy of it since my tape back then was borrowed and never returned. Thanks for sharing.

i love retro bon jovi traks the groove hairstyle and tight paints long hair. the most melodious song with most romentic lyrics is "if your in these arms tonight".this is about a man who really knows how to show his woman that he really loves her.the lyrics started with the line "you need commitment, take a look into my eyes" and goes on to say "i would do every thing .... if you are in these arms tonight.

I have loved Bon Jovi since I was a kid- and still do- I'm so happy that they came out with new stuff- I still love their older albums also- Don't get me wrong- I loved the duo with Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland) and the cross roads with them on CMT- I think Bon Jovi is back and I'm so glad!
