"Always" as written by and Jon Bon Jovi....
This romeo is bleeding
But you can't see his blood
It's nothing but some feelings
That this old dog kicked up

It's been raining since you left me
Now I'm drowning in the flood
You see I've always been a fighter
But without you I give up

Now I can't sing a love song
Like the way it's meant to be
Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore
But baby, that's just me

And I will love you, baby always
And I'll be there forever and a day always
I'll be there till the stars don't shine
Till the heavens burst and
The words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you - Always

Now your pictures that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life
Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry
One that made you have to say goodbye
What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair
To touch your lips, to hold you near
When you say your prayers try to understand
I've made mistakes, I'm just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near
When he says the words you've been needing to hear
I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine
To say to you till the end of time

Yeah, I will love you baby always
And I'll be there forever and a day always

If you told me to cry for you
I could
If you told me to die for you
I would
Take a look at my face
There's no price I won't pay
To say these words to you

Well, there ain't no luck
In these loaded dice
But baby if you give me just one more try
We can pack up our old dreams
And our old lives
We'll find a place where the sun still shines

And I will love you, baby always
And I'll be there forever and a day always
I'll be there till the stars don't shine
Till the heavens burst and
The words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you always

    General Commentokay. this is one of the best love songs ever.
    there's no doubt about it. the lyrics are sooo amazing.

    lines like "this romeo is bleeding
    but you can't see his blood"
    "it's been raining since you left me
    now I'm drowning in the flood"
    "what I'd give to run my fingers through
    your hair
    to touch your lips, to hold you near"
    "when he holds you close, when he pulls you near
    when he says the words you've been
    needing to hear
    I'll wish I was him `cause those words are mine
    to say to you till the end of time"

    those lines are amazing.
    and of course the chorus.
    jon and richie are one of the best song writing duos in the history of music.

    and yeah. it is about a stalker.
    jon said it on the "This left feels right concert"
    but to me.
    it's a love song.
    and it's going to always be a love song.
    a classic.
    and the best love song ever.

    General Commentyeah, it's a real love song. the only Bon Jovi song i like, though
    but i really do hate the video to this song. it just ruins it all, the guy treats the girl so badly and when the girl finally dumps him he goes: "oh why are you not with me. i'll be loving you forever baby"
    anyone agrees that the video sucks?

    General CommentI agree with you on the video. The Song is about a mistake that ended a relationship, but i'm not sure it's that kind of mistake (cheating), more of a no-commitment-for-the-time-being.

    General CommentIt seemed that in 94' when this was released that the days of the big, bombastic, 80's power ballad were over. But than this badboy came out and just destroyed them all. This song is a power ballad, but it is also an amazing love song, and beautiful piece of music.
    This song will never get old. It is amazing.
