Bon Jovi wordt opgericht in 1983 en bestaat uit zanger Jon Bon Jovi, gitarist Richie Sambora, toetsenist David Bryan en drummer Tico Torres. In 1986 heeft de rockband uit New Jersey hun eerste hit met You Give Love A Bad Name en een reeks van vele hits volgt.

In 2000 scoort de band hun eerste nummer 1-hit in de Top 40 met de single It's My Life. Daarna wordt het succes langzaam minder en wordt de top 10 alleen in 2002 nog gehaald met de single Everyday en in 2005 met Have A Nice Day.

In 2014 stapt Richie Sambora om onbekende redenen uit de band. In 2016 verschijnt het laatste album van de band This House Is Not For Sale maar hits worden er niet meer gescoord.


Songtekst

Hey God, I'm just a little man got a wife and family
But I almost lost the house
Yeah, I bought into the dream
We're barely holdin' on, when I'm in way to deep
We're two paychecks away from living out on the streets
She's a workin' single mom, like a Saint she doesn't complain
She never says a word, but she thinks that she's to blame
Her son just got convicted, he blew some punk away
She did her best to raise him, but the world got in the way

Hey God - Tell me what the hell is going on
Seems like all the good shits gone
It keeps on getting harder hanging on
Hey God, there's nights you know I want to scream
These days you've even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be, but Hey God...
Do you ever think about me

Born into the ghetto in 1991, just a happy child
Playing beneath the summer sun
A vacant lots' his playground, by 12 he's got a gun
The odds are bet against him, junior don't make 21

Hey God - Tell me what the hell is going on
Seems like all the good shits gone
It keeps on getting harder hangin' on
Hey God, there's nights you know I want to scream
These days you've even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be, but Hey God...
I'd get down on my knees

I'm going to try this thing you way
Seen a dying man too proud to beg spit on his own grave
Was he too gone to save?
Did you even know his name?
Are you the one to blame, I got something to say

Hey God - Tell me what the hell is going on
Seems like all the good shits gone
It keeps on getting harder hangin' on
Hey God, there's nights you know I want to scream
These days you've even harder to believe
I know how busy you must be, but Hey God...
Do you ever think about me
