"Hook Me Up" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Andreas Michael Carlsson, Desmond Child and Richard Sambora....
Hello, is there anybody out there?
I'm alone hanging by a thread
Everywhere around the world
Everybody's waiting for someday
Calling out around the world
Maybe someday might be tonight

[Chorus:]
Hook me up
I'm reaching out for you, come on
Hook me up
I know you can do it, come on, take me on

Are you there?
Tell me what you're feeling.
Your fears and all your wildest dreams
Everyone around the world
Is feeling just the same way that we are
Reaching out around the world
Will someone somewhere throw me a line?

[Chorus]

Save me, save me
Save me, save me
Hello, is there anybody out there?

Calling out around the world
Maybe someday might be tonite

[Chorus]

Hook me up
I'm hanging on the line, come on
Hook me up
Make me come alive, come on, take me on

Save me, save me,
Save me, save me

    General CommentGreat song!

    I rekon its about someone just wanting to have a good time [not necessarily by doing somthing, maybe just by being with the person they want to be with] with a friend or loved one; but that friend or special someone doesn't know or doesn't realise that they are needed

    General CommentThis is probably one of my least favourite bon jovi songs... the whole song sounds very dissonant, and not pleasant to listen to... nice sentiment though, a person needing help desperately... kind of along the same line as the beatles' Help!

    General CommentI think the whole song is about some guy just looking for someone, or something to save them. They're lost and scared, and at the end, they give up, as seen with the words being cut off.

    I really like this song, i think it's very typical bon jovi

    Song MeaningWith the Bounce Special Edition CD, before they played this song, Jon explained the song. Basicly, it's about a kid in Palestine trying to tell what was going on VIA ham radio, looking for somebody to reach out and hook him up to the outside world, and so on and so forth.
