J. bon jovi

As we stood there older than men
And younger than the boys (thats right)
We were as still as the wind
That blows on a hot august night

And you were lonesome
As a jukebox
But deadly just the same
I could be as gentle as a newborn
Then spit into the eye of a hurricane

And we knew how to laugh
And we knew how to cry
Yeah, we sure knew how to live
But we dont ever

Never say die
Never say die

I guess youd say we had a pact
These words we knew so well (thats right)
Still they remained unspoken
And wed take them to the fiery
Gates of hell

Once I was afraid of love
But when its your brother
Those things change
cause love is just another word
For trust
So hear me when I say

Never say die
Never say no
You got to look them in the eye
And dont let go
When its your own blood youll bleed
And your own tears youll cry
When youre brought up to believe
That its the strong who survive
Never say die

Solo

Yeah, and we could run like lightning
Through the pouring rain
And well be standing like a soldier
Who comes marching home again

They ask what it is that I want written
On the gravestone where Ill lie
Tell them its just my bones
That died there
So save the tears theyll cry

My spirit is still riding somewhere
Somewhere in this night
When its these three words that come to me
As I kiss this world goodbye

Never say die
Never say no
You got to look them in the eye
And dont let go
When its your own blood youll bleed
And your own tears youll cry
When youre brought up to believe
That its the strong who survive
Never say die
