BON JOVI LYRICS

"It's My Life"


This ain't a song for the broken-hearted

No silent prayer for the faith-departed

I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd

You're gonna hear my voice

When I shout it out loud


[Chorus:]It's my life

It's now or never

I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive


(It's my life)


My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just wanna live while I'm alive

It's my life


This is for the ones who stood their ground

For Tommy and Gina who never backed down

Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake

Luck ain't even lucky

Got to make your own breaks


[Chorus:]


It's my life

And it's now or never

I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive


(It's my life)


My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive


'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out

Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down


[Chorus:]


It's my life

And it's now or never

'Cause I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive


(It's my life)


My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive


[Chorus:]


It's my life

And it's now or never

'Cause I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive


(It's my life)


My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

'Cause it's my life!


Now the concept is good enough to stand on itself alone. I love Bon Jovi. I was watching him on MTV the other night when I was doing some work and when I saw him stand there and sing and the way he emphasized some words, I really 'received' the words - a bit differently this time and maybe for the first time I understood what he meant exactly.
It's not only about the thought of doing life our way, there is only ONE TIME YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE. One time to be a kid, one time to be fifty, one time to live today, just this one second. If you waste it - even one moment of it - you'll NEVER get that it back.
Think about that - it kind of kicked me in the gut if you will.
Do your living NOW. :)

Great sentiment. I write about Jon Bon Jovi on my blog because he and I grew up in adjoining towns in NJ. I didn't know him.
