Lost Highway (2007)

Lost Highway
Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, John Shanks

In my rearview mirror
My life is getting clearer
The sunset sighs and slowly disappears
These trinkets once were treasure
Life changes like the weather

You grow up grow old or you hit the road round here
So I drive
Watching white lines passing by
My plastic dashboard Jesus
Waiting there to greet us

Hey Hey
I finally found my way
Say goodbye to yesterday
Hit the gas there ain't no brakes
On this lost highway
I busted loose I'm letting go
Out on this open road
It's independence day
On this lost highway

Hey hey
Hey hey

Don't know where I'm going
But I know where I've been
And I'm afraid of going back again
So I drive
Years and miles are flying by
And waiting there to greet us
Is my plastic dashboard Jesus

Hey Hey
I finally found my way
Say goodbye to yesterday
Hit the gas there ain't no brakes
On this lost highway
I busted loose I'm letting go
Out on this open road
It's independence day
On this lost highway

Hey hey
Hey hey

Oh patron saint of lonely souls
Tell this boy which way to go
Guide the car you got the keys
Farewell to mediocrity
Kicking off the cruise control
And turning up the radio
Got just enough religion
And a half a tank of gas
Come on, let's go

I finally found my way
Say goodbye to yesterday
Hit the gas there ain't no brakes
On this lost highway
I busted loose I'm letting go
Well I'm out on this open road
It's independence day
On this lost highway

Hey hey
Hey hey
Hey hey

On this lost highway

Summertime
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Shanks

Feels something like summertime
Top down and nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime

These days life goes like this
Wake up, check that off of some list
Got to be a little something more than this
At the bottom of my coffee cup
I keep a postcard in the back of my mind
White sand, sunshine
And you shining like a brand new dime
That's keeping me for giving up
Thinking like I had enough

You make me
Feel something like summertime
Top down and nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime
Like that first slow dance and that first long kiss
There ain't nothing baby better then this
It's like a beach blanket and a bottle of wine
It feels something like summertime

I was a warm breeze with a cool tan
Life mapped out on the back of my hand
When God was laughing I was making plans
But He didn't laugh when I found you
If there is a heaven you're the proof

You make me
Feel something like summertime
Top down and nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime
Like that first slow dance and that first long kiss
There ain't nothing baby better then this
It's like a beach blanket and a bottle of wine
It feels something like summertime

Feel something like summertime
Top down and nothing but time
Radio's on for me and my valentine
It's like that first slow dance and that first long kiss
There ain't nothing baby better then this
It's like a beach blanket and a bottle of wine

Feel something like summertime
Top down and nothing but time
Radio's on and you're by my side
Feels something like summertime
Just like summertime

(You Want to) Make a Memory
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Desmond Child

Hello again, it's you and me
Kinda always like it used to be

Sippin' wine, killin' time
Trying to solve life's mysteries
How's your life? It's been a while
God it's good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don't know if you should stay
If you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be
You want to make a memory

I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had
It's bittersweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringing I don't want to ask
If you go now I'll understand
If you stay, hey I got a plan

You want to make a memory
You want to steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I could write a couple lines
You want to make a memory

If you don't know if you should say
And you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be
We should be

You want to make a memory
You want to steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I could write a couple lines

You want to make a memory
You want to make a memory

Whole Lot of Leavin
Bon Jovi, Shanks

It's pretty cold for late September
The autumn wind is creeping in
The summer sun packed up It's long gone
There's a whole lot of leavin' going on

I bet It's warm in California
I think it's time to hit the road
I just might call that band of gypsys
Go searching for our pot of gold
Seems like lately there's a whole lot
Of leavin' going on

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I still hear your voice
It takes me back to that time
Where I could find a reason to be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot
Of leavin' going on

Close the window draw the curtains
You ain't the only one here hurtin'
No one's right, no one's wrong
Lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin on

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I still hear your voice
It takes me back to that time
Where I could find a reason to be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot
Of leavin' going on

You used to live to say you love me
Now you got one foot out the door
It's then you you turn around and ask me
Do we got it anymore

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I still hear your voice
It takes me back to that time
When I need a reason to be strong

I close my eyes and picture your hand in mine
I walk the line you'll never hear me sayin' goodbye
So pretty baby please be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' going on

We Got It Going On
Bon Jovi, Sambora, John Rich, Kenny Alphin

Is there anybody out there looking for a party
Shake your moneymaker baby smoke it if you got it
We just want to have some fun
If you don't want to kiss this
Everybody raise your hands
Come on I need a witness

We got it going on
We'll be bangin' and sangin' just like the Rolling Stones
We're gonna shake up your souls
We've come to rattle your bones
'Cause we got it going on

You got a ticket to kick it
I want to hear you scream now
Because tonight you got the right
To let your hair down
When everybody's getting down
We're getting down to business
Insane, freak train
You don't want to miss this

We got it going on
We'll be bangin' and sangin' just like the Rolling Stones
We're gonna shake up your souls
We've come to rattle your bones
'Cause we got it going on

We got it going on
We got it going on
We got it going on

We'll be bangin' and sangin' just like the Rolling Stones
We're gonna shake up your souls
We've come to rattle your bones
'Cause we got it going on

Getting down with Big and Rich and Richie and Jon
Just a bangin' and sangin'
Why don't you all come along
We got it going on

We got it
We got it
We got it going on

We got it
We got it
We got it going on

Any Other Day
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Gordie Sampson

Alarm clock rings It's 6:45
Must have hit that snooze button least three times
I'm wishing this morning
Was still last night
On any other day
I just might want to die

Traffic's backed up 20 miles to the east
Must have hit every damn red light on the street
The weatherman says it's gonna rain for a week
Hey what can you do

On any other day I'd be blue eyes crying
I could tell the world at least I'm trying
The clouds are breaking the sun is shining new
For me and you
On any other day
I might just go crazy
The grace is knowing that your gonna save me
Maybe luck and love will pull us through

On any other day
I might just stay in bed
Sink down in a sea of blankets
Pull them up over my head
Catch a beer buzz in the morning
Just to get a little edge
Then maybe just get up in time
To do it all again
Hey, I like where this is going
Yeah, 'cause I know where It's been

On any other day I'd be blue eyes crying
I could tell the world at least I'm trying
The clouds are breaking the sun is shining new
For me and you
On any other day
I might just go crazy
The grace is knowing that your gonna save me
Maybe luck and love will pull us through

Alarm clock rings It's 6:45
I like waking up with you on my mind
Knowing that you're saving me one more time

On any other day I'd be blue eyes crying
I could tell the world at least I'm trying
The clouds are breaking the sun is shining new
For me and you
On any other day
I might just go crazy
The grace is knowing that your gonna save me
Maybe luck and love will pull us through

Seat Next to You
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Hillary Lindsey

A long slow drive down an old dirt road
You got your hand out the window listening to the radio
Thatís where I want to be
On an old park bench in the middle of December
Cold hard rain falling canít find no cover

That would be alright with me

Hard days, good times
Blue skies, dark nights
Baby, I want you to take me
Wherever youíre going to
Maybe, say that youíll save me
A seat next to you

In the corner booth of a downtown bar
With your head on my shoulder
Smoking on a cheap cigar
That would be all right with me

In the back row of a movie
Or a cross-town train
I want to hear your voice
Whispering my name
Thatís where I want to be

Hard days, good times
Blue skies, dark nights
Baby, say that youíll take me
Wherever youíre going to
Maybe, say that youíll save me
A seat next to you

Life is like a Ferris wheel spinning around
When you get to the top itís hard to look down
Just hang on
Weíll make it through
Save me
A seat next to you

When you get to the gates
And all the angels sing
Go to that place
Where the church bells ring and know Iíll come running
Running to find you

Baby, say that youíll take me
Wherever youíre going to
And baby, I want you to save me

A seat next to you
A seat next to you
A seat next to you

Everybody's Broken
Bon Jovi, Billy Falcon

Welcome to the party
Come on in and disappear
Youíre feeling like a stranger
But all your friends are here
Little lines and cracks
Around your eyes and mouth
Somethingís trying to get in
Somethingís trying to get out


Itís okay to be a little broken
Everybodyís broken in this life
Itís okay to feel a little broken
Everybodyís broken
Youíre alright, itís alright
Itís just life

Step into the deep end
Make yourself at home
When you wonder why youíre breathing
Know youíre not alone
Itís so hard to believe
Whatís easier to doubt
Youíre trying to hold in
What youíre dying to scream out

Itís okay to be a little broken
Everybodyís broken in this life
Itís okay to feel a little broken
Everybodyís broken
Youíre alright, itís alright
Itís just life

Take a look around
Tell me what you see
Is who you think you are
Who you want to be

Itís okay to be a little broken
Everybodyís broken in this life
Itís okay to feel a little broken
Everybodyís broken
Youíre alright
Keep on going
Eyes wide open

Everybodyís broken
Everybodyís broken
Everybodyís broken
Everybodyís broken
Everybody's broken
Everybodyís broken

Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Brett James

It might be hard to be lovers 
But itís harder to be friends 
Baby pull down the covers
Itís time you let me in 
Maybe light a couple candles 

Iíll just go ahead and lock the door
If youíll just talk to me baby
Till we ainít strangers anymore

Lay your head on my pillow
Iíll sit beside you on the bed 
Donít you think itís time to say
Some things we havenít say
It ainít too late to get back to that place
Back to the way we thought it was before 
Why donít you look at me
Till we ainít strangers anymore

Sometimes itís hard to love me
Sometimes itís hard to love you too
I know itís hard believing 
That love can pull us through
It would be so easy to live your life
With one foot out the door
Just hold me baby
Till we ainít strangers anymore

Itís hard to find forgiveness
When we just turn out the lights
Itís hard to say youíre sorry 
When we canít tell wrong from right
It would be so easy to spend your whole damn life
Just keeping the score

So letís get down to it baby
There ainít no need to lie
Tell me who you think you see
When you look into my eyes
Letís put our two hearts back together
And weíll leave the broken pieces on the floor
Make love with me baby

Till we ainít strangers anymore
Till we ain't strangers anymore

The Last Night
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Shanks

These days
Itís hard to have a heart
It doesnít matter where you come from
Or who you think you are
These days
Itís hard just fitting in
Why does someone have to lose
For someone else to win
Weíre all looking for forgiveness
And someone we can trust
You canít wrap your arms around the world
It all comes down to us

This is the last night
Youíll have to be alone
Iíll be standing right beside you
If you canít make it on your own
So walk with me please
Help me to be strong
Iíll be the shoulder
You can lean on
When everybodyís gone
This is the last night
Youíll have to be alone

I know youíll heard it all before
Thereís nothing worse than living less
When you yearn for something more
Makes no sense
Itís hard to understand when the something
That should fill you up
Keeps slipping through your hands

This is the last night
Youíll have to be alone
Iíll be standing right beside you
If you canít make it on your own
So walk with me please
Help me to be strong
Iíll be the shoulder
You can lean on
When everybodyís gone
This is the last night
Youíll have to be alone

Weíre all looking for answers
Weíre all down here on our knees
All anybody really wants
Is something to believe
Enough is enough
I canít take anymore
Iím standing on your front porch
And kickin down your door

This is the last night
This is the last night
Youíll have to be alone
Iíll be standing right beside you
If you canít make it on your own
So walk with me please
Help me to be strong
Iíll be the shoulder
You can lean on
When everybodyís gone
This is the last night
Youíll have to be alone

This is the last time
This is the last night
This is the last night
This is the last night youíll have to be alone

One Step Closer
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Shanks

Iíve seen the heart of darkness
Letís just say I crossed over that line
Held hands with the hopeless
In too deep on that ride
Went around one more time
When youíre standing on the edge
You donít look down
Till youíre ready and willing to fly

Now Iím one step closer
With my arms open wide
Iím one step closer
And Iím willing to try this time

I hitched a ride with forgiveness
In that river of emotion
I went down a third time
I spent the night with the living
Took a chance looked inside
Didnít know who Iíd find
Standing on the corner of hello and goodbye
All alone itís there I made up my mind

Iím one step closer
With my arms open wide
Iím one step closer
And Iím willing to try

Iím sick of giving up
With a little luck
Iím gonna get out of here
When youíre standing on the edge
You donít look down
Till youíre ready and your willing to fly

Now Iím one step closer
With my arms open wide
Iím one step closer
And Iím willing to try

Iím one step closer
I'm one step closer

I Love This Town
Bon Jovi, Sambora, Falcon

I always knew that I liked this place
You donít have to look too far to find a friendly face
I feel alive when Iím walking on this street
I feel the heart of the city
Pounding underneath my feet

This is where it all goes down, down, down
Thatís why I love this town
Thatís why I keep coming round
Say hey, say yeah
You make me feel at home somehow right now
Thatís why I love this town

I got some good friends here
Might have broke a heart or two
Itís getting loud over there
The boys must have had a few
Thereís a cop on the corner
He knows everybodyís name
And a kid with a dream
Singing for some spare loose change

Let the world keep spinning round and round
This is where it all goes down, down, down
Thatís why I love this town
Thatís why I keep coming round
Say hey, say yeah
You make me feel at home somehow right now
Thatís why I love this town

Theyíre shouting from the rooftops
Dancing on the bars
Hanging out the window driving in their babyís car
You want it, you got it
You ready Iím on it
Come on now here we go again

Thatís why I love this town
Thatís why I love this town

No matter where youíre from
Tonight youíre from right here
This is where it all goes down, down, down
Thatís why I love this town

Say hey, say yeah
I love this town
Say hey, say yeah
I love this town
Say hey, say yeah
I love this town
Say hey, say yeah
I love this town

Lonely
Bon Jovi, Child, Daryl Brown

Thereís a whole lotta lonely
Waiting out there
Thereís a whole lotta people
Thatíll lead you nowhere
So be safe my lover
Let me offer my prayer
Thereís a whole lotta lonely
Waiting out there

Thereís a whole lotta kisses
Waiting out there
And the world you been missing
That donít play fair
Let me offer you comfort
And show you how much I care
Thereís a whole lotta lonely
Waiting out there

When love is blind sometimes the lies
Can get you through the night
Iím holding on to what I need
Till youíre too tired to fight

Now thereís a lot of lone riders
So baby beware
After the warmth of his whisper
In the cool night air
Itíll be hard to wake up to
That handsome cold blank stare
Cause thereís a hell of a lot of lonely
Waiting out there

When love is blind sometimes the lies
Can get you through the night
Iím holding on to what I need
Till youíre too tired to fight

Now thereís a whole lotta lonely
Waiting out there
Thereís a whole lotta people
Thatíll lead you nowhere
Thereís only so much sorrow
That a heart can bear
Thereís a hell of a lot of lonely
Waiting out there
Thereís a hell of a lot of lonely
Baby Iím scared
Waiting out there

Put the Boy Back in Cowboy
Bon Jovi

They should have put her in the movies
My little country cutie
She's the reason I believe
God made blue jeans
I was a slicker from the city
When I met that little philly
I was six feet tall
Till she brought me to my knees
I sold my foreign car
For a pick up truck
I never drink champagne
Now it's Jack straight up
And you better like hank her
Or you're out of luck
What's up

She put the boy
Back in cowboy
Hell I was just a red neck want to be
She put the boy
Back in cowboy
That southern woman
Made a new man out of me

The transformation was amaziní
Even Jesus couldn't save me
From day to night I was such a sight to see
At the rodeo she kissed me
Then said boy don't get too frisky
But if you're lucky
You might two step home with me
Yeah I got the boots
I bought the stetson hat
I got a big belt buckle
Tried to rope a calf
I'm in a ring of fire
And as cool as Johnny Cash
You asked

She put the boy
Back in cowboy
Hell I was just a red neck want to be
She put the boy
Back in cowboy
That southern woman
Made a new man out of me
That country woman
Made a new man out of me

She put the boy
Back in cowboy
She put the boy
Back in cowboy
She's a live wire
On a bon fire
Desire
Takiní me higher

She put the boy
Back in cowboy
Hell I was just a red neck want to be
She put the boy
Back in cowboy
That country woman

She put the boy
Back in cowboy
Hell I was just a red neck want to be
She put the boy
Back in cowboy
Sure been nice to make you company
That southern woman made a new men out of me
