"Bells Of Freedom" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Desmond Child and Richard Sambora....
I have walked all alone
On these streets I call home
Streets of hope, streets of fear
Through the sidewalk cracks time disappears

I was lost, on my knees
On the eve of defeat
As I choked back the tears
There's a silent scream no one could hear

So far away from everything you know is true
Something inside that makes you do what you got to do

Ring them bells, ring them loud
Let them ring here and now
Just reach out and ring the Bells of Freedom
When your world's crashing down
Like you're lost every round
Stand your ground
And ring the Bells of Freedom

Up the steps of the church
Through the fields and the dirt
In the dark I have seen
That the sun still shines for the one who believes

So far away
So full of doubt and needing proof
Just close your eyes and hear the sounds inside of you

Ring them bells, ring them loud
Let them ring here and now
Just reach out and ring the Bells of Freedom
When your world's comes crashing down
Like you've lost every round
Stand your ground
And ring the bells of freedom

Ring them bells, ring them loud
Let them ring here and now
Just reach out and ring the Bells of Freedom
Yeah, when your world comes crashing down
Like you've lost every round
Stand your ground and ring the Bells of Freedom
Ring them bells, ring them loud
Let them ring here and now
Just reach out and ring the Bells of Freedomâ?¦

    General CommentThis song had me believe in Jesus Christ. :-)

    I was really down these days (14 years old) so I prayed to God, just to see if things will work out. And they worked out. I was an atheist, so I became a Christian again.

    And yes, stand your ground and ring the bells of freedom. Remember what Jesus Christ said? "Know the truth and the truth shall set you free."
    So far I've met only one Truth...God!

    Peace and love to everyone and keep the faith!

    General Commentthis is one of, if not the best songs on the have a nice day cd.
    it hits deep inside, dont give up, no matter what, no matter how far you have to walk, how high you need to climb, when you do, everyone will know you did, and respect you.

    or, thats what i think...

    General CommentI have only just realised how deep and meaningful this song really is. Iv just seen them live in coventry, uk and i was nearlly in tears when they played this. There were projections of Martin Luther King Jr and JFK and it hit me like to say that they were freedom fighters and that no matter what you want in life, never give up.

    General CommentI think its also kind of a message to our troops over seas. "So far away, so full of doubt" I think means how far they are from home, and they don't know why they're there, but "hear the sound inside of you, ring those bells" is saying no matter what you're going for, remember why.

    General Commenti think it means when people are telling you what to do you should stand your ground and say no.

    'Stand your ground
    And ring the Bells of Freedom'
