Bounce (2002)

Undivided
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Billy Falcon

That was my brother lost in the rubble
That was my sister lost in the crush
That was our mothers, those were our children
That was our fathers, that was each of us
A million prayers to God above
A million tears make an ocean of

One for love
One for truth
One for me
One for you

I found spirit, they couldn't ruin it
I found courage in the smoke and dust
I found faith in the songs you silenced
Deep down it's ringing out in each of us
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

One for love
One for truth
One for me
One for you

Where we once were divided,
now we stand united
We stand as one
undivided

Guitar Solo

How many hands?
How many hearts?
How many dreams
been torn apart?
Enough, enough
the time has come to rise back as

One for love
One for truth
One for me
One for you

Where we once were divided
now we stand united
We stand as one
undivided
Undivided
Undivided

One for love
One for truth
One for me
One for you

Where we once were divided
now we stand united
We stand as one
undivided

Everyday
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Andreas Carlsson

I used to be the kind of guy
Who'd never let you look inside
I'd smile when I was crying
I had nothing but to a lot to lose
Thought I had a lot to prove
In my life there's no denying

Goodbye to all my yesterdays
Goodbye, so long, I'm on my way

I've had enough of crying,
bleeding, sweating, dying
Hear me when I say,
gonna live my life everyday
I'm gonna touch the sky,
(and I) spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
Gonna live my life everyday

Change, everybody's feelin' strange
Never gonna be the same
Makes you wonder how the world keeps turning
Life, learning how to live my life
Learning how to pick my fights
Take my shots while I'm still burning

Goodbye to all those rainy nights
Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of crying,
bleeding, sweating, dying
Hear me when I say,
gonna live my life everyday
I'm gonna touch the sky,
(and I) spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
Gonna live my life everyday

Hit the gas, take the wheel,
I just made myself a deal
There ain't nothing gonna get in my way
Everyday

Guitar Solo

Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of crying,
bleeding, sweating, dying
Hear me when I say,
gonna live my life everyday
I'm gonna touch the sky
And I spread these wings and fly
I ain't here to play
Gonna live my life
Everyday

I, oh I, oh I
I'm gonna live my life
Everyday
I, (gonna touch the sky)
Oh, I, (spread these wings and fly)
oh I,
I'm gonna live my life
Everyday

The Distance
Bon Jovi, Sambora, D. Child

There's a train out in the distance,
destination still unknown
Far away where no one's waiting,
so far from home,
so far from home

There's a rose outside your window,
the first snow is falling down
Like that lonesome whistle blowing
I keep on going,
keep on going

Close your eyes and see my blue skies
breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress
and your arms are reaching
through the night
I'll never give up the fight
I'll go the distance

There's a thread that runs between us
pulling 'cross this great divide
It's only there for the believers
Don't stop believing,
don't stop believing

Close your eyes and see my blue skies
breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress
and your arms are reaching
through the night
I'll never give up the fight
I'll go the distance,
I'll go the distance

There's a neverending story
that begins with you and I
Like the rose outside your window
Don't let it die, (don't let it die)
Don't let it die

Close your eyes and see my blue skies
breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress
and your arms are reaching
through the night

Close your eyes and see my blue skies
breaking through these dark clouds
You are the light
In my mind I see your red dress
and my arms are reaching
through the night

I'll never give up the fight
I'll go the distance
I'll go the distance
I'll go the distance
I'll go the distance
I'll go the distance

Joey
Bon Jovi, Sambora

Joey Keys was from my neighborhood
Some would say that he was bad
and Joe thought that was good
Said he got the name "Keys" picking locks
He never really robbed no one
it sure amused the cops

Joey's parents owned a restaurant
After closing time they'd give us
almost anything we'd want
I never cared that Joey Keys was slow
Though he couldn't read or write too well
we'd talk all night long.
Come on, come on, come on
What you gonna do with your life?
Come on, come on, come on
Chasing sparks in the nights
His old man said tomorrow
is a ride that goes nowhere
But I'll pull some strings,
get blackbird wings
And break us out of there

Hey Joey
C'mon tell me 'bout your dreams
Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
Tell me who you're gonna be
Hey Joey
You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
Sometimes you got to stand and fight
It'll be alright
We're gonna find a better life

See Joe was 3 years younger to the day
Acting like a little brother
but became my ball and chain
I met this girl named Rhonda,
she fell for me
She said, "I might learn to like him
but love ain't built for three."

Hey Joey
Come on tell me 'bout your dreams
Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
Tell me who you're gonna be (who you're gonna be)
Hey Joey
You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
Sometimes you got to stand and fight
It'll be alright

Hey Joey

Guitar Solo

News gets around in this fading neighborhood
The old man lost the restaurant
He drinks more than he should
It's time for Joey Keys to do some good
Pick the lock off our lives,
let's get out of here
like we always said we would

Hey Joey
Tell me 'bout your dreams
Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
Tell me who you're gonna be (who you're gonna be)

Hey Joey
You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
You got to stand and fight
It'll be alright
We're gonna find a better life
Find a better life
Find a better life

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Come on, come on, come on
What you gonna do with your life?
Ah, come on, come on, come on
Chasing sparks in the night
Tell the old man it's tomorrow;
Baby, we're off to find somewhere
Well, I pulled those strings,
and blackbird wings
that got us out of here

Misunderstood
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Carlsson, Child

Should I? Could I?
Have said the wrong things right
a thousand times
If I could just rewind,
I see it in my mind
If I could turn back time,
you'd still be mine
You cried, I died
I should have shut my mouth,
things headed south, yeah
As the words slipped off my tongue,
they sounded dumb
If this old heart could talk,
it'd say you're the one
I'm wasting time
when I think about it

I should have drove all night,
Would have run all the lights
I was misunderstood
I stumbled like my words,
Did the best I could
Damn, misunderstood

Could I? Should I?
Apologize for sleeping
on the couch that night
Staying out too late
with all of my friends
You found me passed out
in the yard again
You cried, I tried
To stretch the truth,
but didn't lie
It's not so bad
when you think about it

I should have drove all night,
Would have run all the lights
I was misunderstood
I stumbled like my words,
Did the best I could
Damn, misunderstood

Intentions good

Guitar Solo

It's you and I,
just think about it

I should have drove all night
Would have run all the lights
I was misunderstood
I stumbled like my words,
did the best I could

I'm hanging outside your door
I've been here before
Misunderstood
I stumbled like my words,
Did the best I could
Damn, misunderstood

Intentions good

All About Loving You
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Carlsson, Child

Looking at the pages of my life
Faded memories of me and you
Mistakes you know I've made a few
I took some shots and fell from time to time
Baby, you were there to pull me through
We've been around that block a time or two
I'm gonna lay it on the line
Ask me how we've come this far
The answer's written in my eyes

Every time I look at you
Baby, I see something new
It takes me higher than before
It makes me want you more
I don't wanna sleep tonight,
dreamin's just a waste of time
When I look at what my life's been comin' to
I'm all about lovin' you

I've lived, I've loved, I've lost,
I've paid some dues,
Baby, we've been to hell and back again
Through it all you're always my best friend
For all the words I didn't say
and all the things I didn't do
Tonight I'm gonna find a way

Every time I look at you,
Baby, I see something new
It takes me higher than before
It makes me want you more
I don't wanna sleep tonight,
dreamin's just a waste of time
When I look at what my life's been comin' to
I'm all about lovin' you

You can take the world away
You're everything I am
Just read the lines upon my face
I'm all about lovin' you

Guitar Solo

I'm all about
I'm all about
I'm all about loving you

Every time I look at you,
Baby, I see something new
That takes me higher than before
It makes me want you more
I don't wanna sleep tonight,
dreamin's just a waste of time
When I look at what my life's been comin' to
I'm all about lovin' you

All about lovin' you

Hook Me Up
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Carlsson, Child

Hello, is there anybody out there?
I'm alone hanging by a thread
Everywhere around the world
Everybody's waiting for someday
Calling out around the world
Maybe someday might be tonight

Hook me up
I'm reaching out for you, come on
Hook me up
I know you can do it, come on,
take me on

Are you there?
Tell me what you're feeling.
Your fears and all your wildest dreams
Everyone around the world
Is feeling just the same way that we are
Reaching out around the world
Will someone somewhere throw me a line?

Hook me up
I'm reaching out for you, come on
Hook me up
I know you can do it, come on,
take me on

Save me,
save me,
Save me,
save me

Hello, is there anybody out there?

Guitar Solo

Calling out around the world
Maybe someday might be tonite

Hook me up
I'm reaching out for you, come on

Hook me up
I'm hanging on the line, come on
Hook me up
Make me come alive, come on,

Right Side Of Wrong
Bon Jovi

A friend of a friend
needs a favor
No questions asked,
there's not much more to say
Me and the wife,
we need the money
We've got four kids all hungry,
one on the way
Slip these sweat socks in your shirt
and pray they think your packin'
Be sure to keep your head down,
don't look 'em in the eye
And don't get fancy, Ricky,
we ain't Jimmy Cagney
Look at me,
let's do the job
and let's get home tonight

I got a half tank of gas
and if we run all the lights
We'll slip across the border
on the wrong side of right
And just like Butch and Sundance
we'll ride until the dawn
Sipping whiskey,
singing cowboy songs
On the Right Side of Wrong

We picked a helluva of a night,
from the shore I see the skyline
In a couple of hours from now Rick,
we're gonna get out of this life
We'll stop for smokes, I brought a six pack,
we'll stop at lookers on the way back
Hell, we'll laugh this off,
keep your fingers crossed
that all goes well tonight

I got a half tank of gas
and if we run all the lights
We'll slip across the border
on the wrong side of right
And just like Butch and Sundance
we'll ride until the dawn
Sipping whiskey,
singing cowboy songs
On the Right Side of Wrong

We'll make the grade,
they'll know our names,
I need a friend to drive here
Wear my necklace of St. Christopher
and talk to him while I go inside
I'll take that suitcase, get the cash
and we'll be gone before you know it
Wait until we tell the girls we're moving down
to the Gulf of Mexico

Guitar Solo

A friend of a friend
needed a favor
Life was just what happened
while we were busy making plans
We never saw nothing,
there was a run-in
.9 millimeter steel was coming
for the windshield of that Oldsmobile
As the cop said,
"Show your hands!"

I got a half tank of gas
and if we run all the lights
We'll slip across the border
on the wrong side of right
Yeah, just like Butch and Sundance
Let's ride until the dawn
Here's to whiskey,
Here's to singing cowboy songs
On the Right Side of Wrong

Love Me Back To Life
Bon Jovi, Sambora

This world don't give you nothing
it can't take away
Everybody holding on to something
Nobody want to fade away
No forgiveness on the streets of this town
I left my patience at a traffic light
There's no denying
I almost lost it
Threw in the towel,
too tired to fight

Tonight I need you
More than yesterday
Tonight I need you

Take me, touch me,
hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me,
come and make me feel it
Rescue me tonight
Love me back to life

These days I'd trade sight for feeling
There are days my feeling's gone
Can't figure out whose life I'm living
I don't know right from wrong
When I lost faith you found it
and gave it back to me
There's a new light on your halo;
it took blind eyes to see

That I need you
More than yesterday
Yeah, I need you

Take me, touch me,
hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me,
come and make me feel it
Rescue me tonight
Love me back to life

Guitar Solo

Take me, touch me,
hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me,
come on make me feel it
Rescue me

Come on, take me, touch me,
hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me,
come on make me feel it
Rescue me tonight
Love me back to life
Come on, love me back to life
Love me back to life
Love me back to life

You Had Me From Hello
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Carlsson

At the mirror you fix your hair
and put your makeup on
You're insecure about what clothes to wear
I can't see nothing wrong
To me you look so beautiful
when you can't make up your mind
It's half past eight,
it's getting late
It's OK, take your time
Standing here my hands in my pockets
Like I have a thousand times
Thinking back it took one breath
One word to change my life

The first time I saw you
it felt like coming home
If I never told you
I just want you to know
You had me from hello

When we walk into a crowded room
it's like we're all alone
Everybody tries to kidnap your attention
You just smile and steal the show
You come to me and take my hand
We start dancin' slow
You put your lips up to my ear
and whisper way down low

From the first time I saw you
it felt like coming home
If I never told you
I just want you to know
You had me from hello

And when you're laying down beside me
I feel your heartbeat to remind me

The first time I saw you
it felt like coming home
If I never told you
I just want you to know
You had me from hello

From hello

Bounce
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Falcon

I been knocked down so many times
Counted out 6, 7, 8, 9
Written off like some bad deal
If you're breathing you know how it feels
Call it karma, call it luck
Me, I just don't give a fffff

Bounce, Bounce
Nothing's gonna keep me down
Bounce, Bounce
Stand up, shout it out
Bounce, Bounce
I play hard, I play to win
Count me out, count me in
I'll be bouncing back again

This ain't no game; I play it hard
Kicked around, cut, stitched and scarred
I'll take the hit but not the fall
I know no fear, still standing tall
You can call it karma, call it luck
Me, I just don't give a fffff

Bounce, Bounce
Nothing's gonna keep me down
Bounce, Bounce
Stand up, shout it out
Bounce, Bounce
I play hard, I play to win
Count me out, count me in
I'll be bouncing back again

Bounce!

Guitar Solo

Bring it on, I like it rough
In your face, I call your bluff
It ain't karma, it ain't luck
Me, I just don't give a fffff

Bounce, Bounce
Nothing's gonna keep me down
Bounce, Bounce
Stand up, shout it out
Bounce, Bounce
I play hard, I play to win
Count me out, count me in
I'll be bouncing back again

Bounce, Bounce
Nothing's gonna keep me down
Bounce, Bounce
Stand up, shout it out
Bounce, Bounce
I play hard, I play to win
Count me out, count me in
I'll be bouncing back again

Bounce, Bounce
Bounce, Bounce
Bounce, Bounce
Bounce, Bounce

Open All Night
Bon Jovi, Sambora

I saw you coming from a mile away
Trying to hide behind that pretty face
Bet my last dollar baby you been bruised
Poor little heart all black 'n' blue
Last thing you need's another pickup line
You must have heard them all a thousand times
God only knows what you been through
Believe me I been broken too
It aches, it breaks, it takes your breath away
I've been around that block a time or two
Baby

I don't want to fall in love with you
I try, try, try but I can't get around the truth
Please don't say my name, give this heart a break
I don't want to make the same mistakes
It's too late
I'll leave on the light
These arms are open all night

I got your taste in the back of my mouth
I want to reach in and pull it out
And I'd be lying if I didn't say
When you're this close I'm afraid
Of the way I'll feel if I touch your hair
The way I'll miss you when you're not there
And that I'll see you when I close my eyes
It's too late, I've crossed that line
It aches, it breaks, it takes your breath away
I'll still be around come closing time

I don't want to fall in love with you
I try, try, try but I can't get around the truth
Please don't say my name, give this heart a break
I don't want to make the same mistakes, but it's too late
I'll leave on the light
These arms are open all night

It's 2 am, it's last call, baby.
The barkeep's gone, I'll walk you home now
Save me, baby

I don't want to fall in love with you
I try, try, try but I can't get around the truth
Please don't make me beg, give this heart a break
Please don't make me make the same mistakes
but it's too late
I'll leave on the light
These arms are open all night
