I like the theme Jim has chosen for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday and I am sure there will be plenty of fantastic songs chosen by our fellow bloggers.
Years ago I had a bit of a Bon Jovi craze, I listened to their albums over and over and couldn’t get enough of them. It seems so long ago now, and I rarely choose their albums from our collection nowadays. Robert always laughs at me because he seems to think I know all of their songs off by heart. That is not the case, but some of their songs I could rattle off without a moment’s thought.
This is one of them, “Always” from the fantastic Bon Jovi. Brilliant track!!! Now, I am rushing off to pick up a friend from her radiotherapy, so I will let you enjoy. (I am preparing this post on a Monday.) Dedicating this to my darling Jenna.

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
