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

Mother mother tell your children
That their time has just begun
I have suffered for my anger
There are wars that can't be won

Father father please believe me
I am laying down my guns
I am broken like an arrow
Forgive me
Forgive your wayward son

Everybody needs somebody to love (mother, mother)
Everybody needs somebody to hate (please believe me)
Everybody's bitching 'cause they can't get enough
When it's hard to hold on
And there's no one to lean on

Faith!: You know you're gonna live through the rain
Lord we've gotta keep the faith
Faith!: Don't you let your love turn to hate
Now we've gotta keep the faith

Keep the faith, keep the faith
Lord we've gotta keep the faith

Tell me baby when I hurt you
Do you keep it all inside
Do you tell me "all's forgiven"
Just hide behind your pride

Yeahyeah!

Everybody needs somebody to love (mother, father)
Everybody needs somebody to hate (please don't leave me)
Everybody's bleeding 'cause the times are tough
Well it's hard to be strong
When there's no one to dream on

Faith!: You know you're gonna live trough the rain
Lord we've gotta keep the faith
Faith!: Don't you know it's never too late
Right now we gotta keep the faith
Faith!: Don't you let your love turn to hate
Lord we gotta keep the faith

Keep the faith, keep the faith
Oh we got to keep the faith
Keep the faith, keep the faith
Lord we got to keep the faith

Oh Oh Yeahyeahyeah!

(Guitar Solo)

I've been walking in the footsteps
Of society's lies
I don't like what i see no more
Sometimes i wish i was blind
Sometimes i wait forever
To stand out in the rain
So no one sees me cryin'
Trying to wash away this pain

Mother father
There's things I've done I can't erase
Every night we fall from grace
It's hard with the world in your face
Trying to hold on, trying to hold on

Faith!: you know you're gonna live through the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith
Faith!: don't you let your love turn to hate
Right now we got to keep the faith
Keep the faith
Keep the faith
Trying to hold on, trying to hold on yeah
Keep the faith
keep the faith
Everybody keep the faith!
