"Whole Lot Of Leavin'" as written by and John/bon Jovi Shanks....
It's pretty cold for late September
And autumn wind is creepin' in
The summer sun packed up it's long gone
There's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on
Yeah

I bet it's warm in California
I think it's time to hit the road
I just might call that plain of gypsies
Whose searching for our pot of gold
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

I close my eyes and picture you're hand in mine
I still hear your voice that takes me back to that time
Where I can find a reason to be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

Close the window draw the curtains
You ain't the only one here hurt
No one's right, no one's wrong

Lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

I close my eyes and picture you're hand in mine
I still hear your voice that takes me back to that time
Where I can find a reason to be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

You used to live to say you love me
You got one foot out the door
It's then you turn around and ask me
Do we got it anymore

I close my eyes and picture you're hand in mine
I still hear your voice that takes me back to that time
Where I need find a reason to be strong

I close my eyes and picture you're hand in mine
Yeah I hold the line you'll never hear me say goodbye
So pretty thing let the years be strong
Seems like lately there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on

I'll come back for you baby

    General CommentI like a lot of Bon Jovi's new stuff. This song is pretty good, too. It's pretty simplistic but rather meaningful.

    General CommentHmmm, perhaps this song is about Richie and Heather's marriage falling apart?

    General CommentJon has said he wrote this one for Richie. He was going through a divorce and custody battle, and his dad was dying. The video is beautiful. Check it out.

    General Commentkait25 is correct.

    Jon did write this for Richie and those horrible things he was going through.

    I love this song. Terrific lyrics and foot tapping beat.

    "I close my eyes and picture you're hand in mine.
    I still hear your voice, it takes me back to that time."

    I love that lyric.
