Jon Bon Jovi - Bon Jovi - Always


Bon Jovi - Always - Meaning of the song


"Always" is a song by American rock band Bon Jovi. The power ballad was released as a single from their 1994 greatest hits album, Cross road and went on to become one of their best-selling singles, with a million copies sold in the US and more than three million worldwide.


The song was originally written by Jon Bon Jovi for the soundtrack to the 1993 film Romeo is bleeding, starring Gary Oldman as a corrupt cop and Mafia aide who is renounced by his wife. After being unimpressed by a preview screening of the movie – which was a critical and box office flop– he decided not to lend "Always" to the producers. Bon Jovi commented:


"The script was great: the movie wasn't."


He left the track on his shelf and forgot about it until John Kalodner, a friend and A&R executive, found it and convinced him to re-record and release the song.


Always - Lyrics


This Romeo is bleeding

But you can't see his blood

It's nothing but some feelings

That this old dog kicked up


It's been raining since you left me

Now I'm drowning in the flood

You see I've always been a fighter

But without you I give up


Now I can't sing a love song

Like the way it's meant to be

Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore

But, baby, that's just me


And I will love you, baby, always

And I'll be there forever and a day, always

I'll be there 'til the stars don't shine

'Til the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme

And I know when I die,

You'll be on my mind

And I'll love you always


Now your pictures that you left behind

Are just memories of a different life

Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry

One that made you have to say goodbye

What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair

To touch your lips, to hold you near

When you say your prayers, try to understand

I've made mistakes, I'm just a man


When he holds you close, when he pulls you near

When he says the words you've been needing to hear

I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine

To say to you 'til the end of time


And I will love you, baby, always

And I'll be there forever and a day, always


If you told me to cry for you

I could

If you told me to die for you

I would

Take a look at my face

There's no price I won't pay

To say these words to you


Well, there ain't no luck

In these loaded dice

But, baby, if you give me just one more try

We can pack up our old dreams and our old lives

We'll find a place where the sun still shines


And I will love you, baby, always

And I'll be there forever and a day, always

I'll be there 'til the stars don't shine

'Til the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme

And I know when I die,

You'll be on my mind

And I'll love you, always


Bon Jovi - Always - Live
