"Real Life" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Desmond Child....
I wish that life was like it is in the movies
Cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark, lonely road
At the end he's got a smile on his face
But when they threw me out to the lions
No one saved me as I fell from your grace
And no one wrote me new lines for what I said wrong
And what I did wrong I could not erase

This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide

I wish that I could be a white knight in armor
With an army just to bring you back home
But I'll admit I'm scared of dialing your number
And someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can't it be like it is on TV
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me

This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide
This is real life, this is real love
These are real wounds that I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real

I always thought that our love was a story book tale
God knows that I'd never dream in the end it would fail

Cause this is real life, this is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide
This is real life, this is real love
These are real wounds that I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real
This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much I'm sure of

    General CommentHow is it that I'm the first to comment on this song? Are there any other major Bon Jovi fans out there besides me? Well, this song is sooo awesome! I luv Bon Jovi more than anything! U would have to b a pretty big fan to know this song b/c it is an un-released song. If anyone else out there knows this song, please comment b/c I want to hear what others have to say about this song. Great band and great song!

    General CommentI agree with Dark Angel... COME ON JOVI FANS!!! This is such an amazing song! It deserves to be recognized...

    I think it's pretty obvious what this song is about... A love gone wrong... A failed romance... We've all been there, right? We all wish love would treat us good *like in the movies*. In the movies, no matter what, you get your true love... In real life, however, it's not that easy... It's hell! It should be like the movies... Love shouldn't be so hard...
