"Living In Sin" as written by and Jon Bon Jovi....
I don't need no license
To sign on no line
And I don't need no preacher
To tell me you're mine
I don't need no diamonds
I don't need no new bride
I just need you, baby
To look me in the eye
I know they have a hard time
And your Daddy don't approve
But I don't need you Daddy
Telling us what we should do

Now there's a million questions
I could ask about our lives
But I only need one answer
To get me thought the night
So, I say

Baby, can you tell me
Just where we fit in
I call it love
They call it living in sin
Is it you and me
Or just this world we live in
I say we're living on love
They say we're living in sin

Is it right for both our parents
Who fight it out most nights
Then pray for God's forgiveness
When they both turn out the lights
Or wear that ring of diamonds
When you heart is made of stone
You can talk but still say nothing
You stay together but alone

Or is it right to hold you
And kiss your lips goodnight
They say the promise is forever
If you sign it on the dotted line

Oh baby, can you tell me
Just where we fit in
I call it love
They call it living in sin
Is it you and me or
Just this world we live in
I say we're living on love
They say we're living in sin

Baby, can you tell me
Just where we fit in
I call it love
They call it living in sin
Is it you and me or
Just this world we live in
I call it love
They call it living in sin
I don't know where to begin
I don't know where we fit in
Living in sin

    General CommentThis song is about not waiting to be married to have sex. Before MTV made them edit the video, the scenes would flash from a girl receiving holy communion and having sex with her boyfriend.

    General CommentVery anti-religious. Living on love or living in sin. Asks the question do you need to be married to love someone?
    How Jon reaches the high notes at the end of the song is beyond me.
    A great song though and the video is even better

    General CommentActually, this song is not "anti-religious", but it is about a young couple struggling between what feels right and what they have been told is right their whole lives. It's a struggle that is common for almost everyone who grows up in household where religion is central. There are a lot of religious tones in Bon Jovi's songs, and this one is probably the most obvious. Great lyrics and vocals on this song! One of Bon Jovi's best...
