"One Light Burning" as written by and Foster/sambora/marolda....
All alone in the dark
No walls no windows
Trying hard to define
Heaven from hell
Standing out in the rain
With just one shadow
Nothing to see or believe
Beyond myself
See my life going by
Each moment I am alive
I keep reaching out, holding on, hoping

Somewhere in my life
There's one light burning
I feel it like my heart beating inside
Somewhere in my life
There's one light burning

All alone with my fears
No words are spoken
A story yet to be told
Locked in my mind
Hope is somewhere ahead
Shining brightly
But the past is always following close behind
See my life going by, each moment I am alive
I keep reaching out, holding on, hoping

Somewhere in my life
There's one light burning
I feel it like my heart beating inside
Somewhere in my life
There's one light burning

Somewhere in my life
There's one light burning
I feel it like my heart beating inside
Somewhere in my life
There's one light burning
Leading the way, leading the way

    General Commentbarely any comments on richie sambora at all! he is way underrated, and both his solo albums (Undiscovered Soul and Stranger in this Town) are absolutely amazing. For anyone who doesn't know, Richie is the lead guitarist of Bon Jovi, but neither of his solo albums are in the style of Bon Jovi. Very soulful, bluesy....absolutely love his stuff. this is one of my favorites off of SITT. the vocals are great, as are the lyrics.

    General CommentCompletely agree. He is totally underrated, only the guys who have played with him say how amazing he is. He can do Anything on an instrument with strings. When listening so Bon Jovi songs you can shut everything else out and just dissapear in his guitarsound. His solo albums are just simply soft. They are totally different from the Bon Jovi stuff, and as much as I dig Bon Jovi, this fits him perfectly.

    General CommentI agree with you both. Richie is so underrated! Most people don't know about his solo work, which is sad. I've made it my mission to introduce people to his solo work!

    This song has got to be one of my favourite songs ever! I love it so much! It's just so beautiful.

    General CommentListen to the lyrics, let them burn in your heart. I have heard this song countless times and the words penetrate me like an arrow to my soul. It gives so much consolation and hope, it is amazing. This song is in my All Time Top Five Songs. I cant remember hearing a song that makes me feel like this! Awesome! Inspiring! Consoling!

    General CommentI also agree that Richie is underrated! I am a HUUUGE Bon Jovi fan and luv all their stuff! Everytime I haar Richie doing a solo in Bon Jovi songs, I just lose myself in the power of his playing. I am now a big fan of Richie's solo stuff! Normally I don't listen to this type of music, but Richie's voice and lyrics and guitarsound just reach out to me and get to the very core of my being. I really "feel" his music, as I do Bon Jovi music, too! Awesome song! Awesome guy!
