"Because We Can" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Falcon and Richard Sambora....
I don’t wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain’t a soldier but I’m here to take a stand
Because we can

She’s in the kitchen staring out the window
So tired of living life in black & white
Right now she’s missing those technicolor kisses
When it just ain’t alive

Lately feeling like a broken promise
In the middle staring down this town
There’s only one thing in this world that she knows
He said forever and he’ll never let her down

I don’t wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain’t a soldier but I’m here to take a stand
Because we can

She laid take out on the coffee table
Prepped the dishes poured a glass of wine
Turn down the sound and move a little closer
Here for the moment everything is alright

I don’t wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain’t a soldier but I’m here to take a stand

Because we ca-an our love can move a mountain
We ca-an if you believe in we
We ca-an just wrap your arms around me
We ca-an we ca-an

I don’t wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain’t a soldier but I’m here to take a stand

I don’t wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain’t a soldier but I’m here to take a stand

Because we ca-an our love can move a mountain
We ca-an if you believe in we
We ca-an just wrap your arms around me
Because we ca-an, we can

Because we can

    General CommentGreat song!!

    About refusing to go along with the flow of life anymore. Refusing to follow the masses and go through the motions in life and relationships anymore.

    First verse about a lonely wife in the kitchen once again, reminiscing about when she used to get those "technicolor kisses" from her husband.

    While he stares in the mirror and hates himself for letting the relationship turn so bad and stale. He realises that the promise he made her of forever has failed and now he says he'll never let her doen again.

    Love the next verse where they are having take-out for dinner, probably because they are too exhausted from their working day to make anything. Paper dishes aswell so they don't have to wash up. Then for a moment everything is alright. I love that lyric, for a moment everything is alright. Every damaged or couple just holding on have that little moments of things being alright. But they know it's all in vain.
