"Hey God" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richard Sambora....
Hey God, I'm just a little man
I got a wife and family
I almost lost my house
I bought into the dream
We're barely holdin' on and I'm in way too deep
We're two paychecks away from livin' out on the street

She's a workin' single mom
Like a saint she don't complain
She never says a word but she thinks that she's to blame
Her son just got convicted
He blew some cop away
She did her best to raise him but the world got in the way

Hey God
Tell me what the hell is goin' on
It seems like all the good shit's gone
It keeps on gettin' harder hangin' on
But hey hey hey hey God
There's nights you know I want to scream
These days you're even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be
But hey hey hey hey God
Do you ever think about me

Born into the ghetto, 1991
Just a happy child playin' beneath the summer sun
A vacant lot's his playground
By 12 he's got a gun
The odds are bet against him
Junior don't make 21

Hey God
Tell me what the hell is goin' on
It seems like all the good shit's gone
It keeps on gettin' harder hangin' on
But hey hey hey hey God
There's nights you know I want to scream
These days you're even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be
But hey hey hey hey God
Do you ever think about me

I get down on my knees
I'm gonna try this thing your way
I seen a dyin' man to proud to beg
Spit on his own grave
Was he too gone to save
Or did you even know his name
Are you the one to blame
I got something to say

Hey God
Tell me what the hell is goin' on
It seems like all the good shit's gone
It keeps on gettin' harder hangin' on
But hey hey hey hey God
There's nights you know I want to scream
These days you're even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be
But hey hey hey hey God
Do you ever think about me

Do you ever think about me

    General CommentThis is an awesome song to me because of how crappy he believes his life is, and how he wants to turn away from God, and despite how much church and worship and the text says that you are the world to God, he feels so insignificant like many that he gives up on it almost, but then after seeing that guy quit on life... he got down on his knees and prayed even though he was still doubtful.

    General CommentQuestioning God and why he does whay he does. The world is full of injustices and he needs someone to blame why not take it out on God. The song rocks. The riff rocks, the lyrics are great and it's a great song.

    General CommentThis is a real "stick it to the man" song (sorry for the expression, but thats what this song is! hehe!)! It shows that theres always bad shit happening int he world, and he sees no-one to blame but God. Good song, really gets me in a lively mood!!

    General CommentThis song and "Something to Believe In" should be like twins. It's fitting that they're on the same album/cd. The song is about questioning why things must sometimes be so seemingly unfair in the world. It's true that there are always terrible things happening to people.

    I like that the lyrics are telling God "I got something to say!" and that it brings up the idea of questioning things. I would, if given the opportunity, have a few questions to ask, too!!
