"Born To Be My Baby" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Desmond Child and Richard Sambora....
Rainy night and we worked all day
We both got jobs 'cause there's bills to pay
We got something they can't take away
Our love, our lives

Close the door, leave the cold outside
I don't need nothing when I'm by your side
We got something that'll never die
Our dreams, our pride

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one (and it's alright)
And I'll never let go cause
There's something I know deep inside

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

Light a candle, blow the world away
Table for two on a TV tray
It ain't fancy, baby that's OK
Our time, our way

So hold me close better hang on tight
Buckle up, baby, it's a bumpy ride
We're two kids hitching down the road of life
Our world, our fight

If we stand side by side (all night)
There's a chance we'll get by (and it's alright)
And I'll know that you'll be live
In my heart 'til the day that I die

'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one (and it's alright)
And I'll never let go cause
There's something I know deep inside

'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan

'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

    General CommentIt's a simple working class love song. I feel it's a followup to Living on a prayer - One of the best song ever written

    General CommentA song about no matter how bad life gets in a marriage or living together... you stick to your guns and remember that the love you have for each other will get you through those hard times. One of my favorites from Bon Jovi.

    General Commenti reallly love this song a lot. It's one of my favorite Bon Jovi songs. I think it's about being content with the little things they have and sticking together because they know they were meant to be with each other.

    General CommentDefinitely one of my fave Bon Jovi songs. It reminds me of how I feel about the guy I'm with... and how love can help anyone overcome the obstacles life throws at them. Plus, it's so much fun to rock out to in the car!

    General CommentI love this song!!! I especially love the version they played at the Nokia Theatre in September 2005!! I just love playing this song on my guitar, Richie writes some very cool riffs nd solos!! I think everyone has the same kinda idea about the meaning behind this song, you have to get through the little bumps in life for the one you love!!!

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy and a girl who love eachother but had a really bad fight and are on the borderline of breaking up. Thats why he says "Even if we don't know where we stand."
    But he knows that they're meant for eachother.
