Poetry Train with Bon Jovi

Don't forget to tip your hostess, the lovely Rhian, ruler of the Poetry Train.

Back on the Poetry Train again, plus I think this will get my google hits up, because I don't think I know too many females who don't want to at least get a glimpse of a Jon Bon Jovi picture.

This is from the new album, Lost Highway, and I think it is one of the more beautifully written slow songs they have done. Its not Livin on a Prayer or Bed of Roses level, but it does show more maturity, and I like that.

Hello again, it's you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin' wine, killing time
Trying to solve life's mysteries

How's your life, it's been a while
God it's good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don't know if you should stay
If you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had.
It's bittersweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringing I don't wanna ask

If you go now, I'll understand
If you stay, hey, I've got a plan
We're gonna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory?

If you don't know if you should stay
And you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be
We Should be

You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory?

Nice lyrics. Cool video too.

Yoo hoo! Sparky! I tagged you for a middle name meme. I like to think your middle name is Clarence. Then I can imagine Ma Duck calling, "Sparky Clarence Duck! You shut your beak and get your tail feathers in here right now!"

He was one of my first rock star crushes. LOL I saw him back when I was only 15...on stage in a pair of tight jeans, no shirt and a leather vest. Mmmmm. He's still as hot as ever.

This Eclectic Life said...

Oh, Sparky...are you one of those people who will do anything to boost your stats? Let me know if it works, and I'll post Jon Bon Jovi pics. LOL

Lisa Andel said...

Hey Sparky, thanks for posting the video with the lyrics. (I am so not going to admit that I've never seen Bon Jovi in action before).

Rhian / Crowwoman said...

ah Sparks my dear- i love this! those lyrics are deeply moving. i've always been somewhat jealous of songwriters because they can take their words into another dimension. thank you so much for posting this! and oh yeah - didn't like him when he was younger but i sho' do appreciate looking at him now!

The Rock Chick said...

OMG!!!! IT"S JON BON JOVI!!!!!! I love him! (but I think you already knew that:)

This new song is beautiful and one of my favorites! It's the softer Bon Jovi but I like it!

Are you getting more hits? I actually have found out that I get less when I post about my love of Bon Jovi,but thats probably because people are tired of me talking about him! LOL

Amy Ruttan said...

Love this song. I always turn it up when I hear it.

Great choice.

Jill said...

The song is beautiful!! I still cannot believe that there is only CMT playing it!!

Starrlight said...

Here is a funny tidbit. I never ever found him at all attractive in his 80's heyday. But when he got older and cut his hair? Um yes please. It's like young Brad Pitt. Didn't do it for me. 35+ Brad Pitt? If I were not scared shitless of Angie, I'd say HELL yes :P

Sparky Duck said...

Mr. Duck loves his wife - because he knows that the world can stand still if Bon Jovi is on TV and he just laughs and says enjoy! Most of the time he freezes the TV when Bon Jovi smiles (I Love his Smile). I loved him when I was in High School and still do. We saw him in concert last year and I turned to Sparky and said he still looks damn good!

It is not all looks, he is very talented and not to mention a gentlemen, I have to respect a man that is married to the same girl he married very young I respect that.
Mrs. Duck!

Starrlight said...

Yo! Mr. Sparky One. I have tagged your for the Middle Name meme :P

Sparky Duck said...

wow, Gal and Starr both love me

Nancy said...

I saw them in Worchester w. Skid Row a looooonnnnnggg time ago. I like this song. It is so interesting to me how poplular they are now. They have matured and he is doing good stuff. How could RItchie leave Heather???

Joy Renee said...

this guy was from my baby sister's era. it wasn't until his appearances on Alley McBeal that I got to know his music and became able to pick his face out of a crowd (album covers, magazine covers etc)

i have liked some of his music but haven't listened to any in awhile. this was a good one.

i must resist clicking one of those related vids on offer. i must. i must i tell you.

too late.
