"Seat Next To You" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Hillary Lee Lindsey and Richard Sambora....
Long slow drive down an old dirt road
You've got your hand out the window, listening to the radio
That's where I wanna be

On old park bench in the middle of December
Cold hard rain fallin', can't find no cover
That would be alright with me

Hard days, good times, blue skies, dark nights
Baby, I want you to take me wherever you're going to
Maybe, say that you'll save me a seat next to you

In the corner booth of a downtown bar, with your head on my shoulder
Smokin' on a cheap cigar that would be alright with me
In the back row of a movie or a cross-town train
I wanna hear your voice whispering my name that's where I wanna be

Hard days, good times, blue skies, dark nights
Baby, say that you'll take me wherever you're going to
Maybe, say that you'll save me a seat next to you

Life is like a ferris wheel, spinnin' around
When you get to the top it's hard to look down
Just hang on we'll make it through
Save me a seat next to you

When you get to the gates and the angels sing
Go to that place where the church bells ring
You know I'll come runnin', runnin' to find you

Baby, say that you'll take me wherever you're going to
Maybe, I want you to save me a seat next to you
A seat next to you
A seat next to you
A seat next to you

    General CommentLove it. About someone who wants nothing more than to journey through life hand in hand with his girl.

    General CommentOne intepreation of this song is slighty deeper than the "being with the one you love" (i.e. wife, girlfriend etc.) Richie himself says that when writing this song the only person he thought about being with was his father (who had just died). Makes the middle eight (i think haha) especially more poignant

    When you get to the gates
    And all the angels sing
    Go to that place
    Where the church bells ring and know I'll come running
    Running to find you

    Great song any way you interpret it though :)
