I Won't Lie, I Wish That I...

This post will be a bit off the normal topic for me, but, hey...we have to vary things a little bit, now don't we?!?!  LOL!

I grew up as a child of the 80's.  Ok, well...that was my teen and high school years anyway.  From time to time you will see me post about music and lyrics.  Music, whatever your taste, has a big influence on us all.  It can bring out raw emotions like nothing else.  You can hear a song you know and it will always remind you about a time in your life, good or bad.  In my day, it was all about big hair bands.  One band has stood the test of time, and is just as strong today as they were in the 80's.  They have quite an empire, and sell out stadiums no matter where they go...Bon Jovi.

The reason for all this is I heard one of their newer songs on my way into work today.  I really liked it and the chorus is what really got to me.

Who's going to save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's going to pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's going to hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

The song is "Superman Tonight" and is on the album "The Circle".  In case you'd like to listen to it, here is the video:

We all have songs that have a special meaning to us.  They remind us of a special time, place, or person.   Without music this would be a boring place.  Enjoy the music that moves you and brings special meaning to your life, just like that special person you can't live without.


  1. DV Sir,

    I am definitely one of those people with a soundtrack to my life. So I can relate to this.


  2. I miss the days of making mix tapes for people! I guarantee that Bon Jovi made it on to their fair share of mixes when they were at their peak...and it sounds like they've still got it! :)

    Keep on rockin' and thanks for sharing,
    Baby Girl :)

  3. mouse...
    By the time you reach our age, we all have our own personal life soundtrack. :) Very well put!

    Baby Girl...
    What do mean you miss the days of mix tapes? LOL! I still make mix CDs off of my Itunes all the time. :) And yes, I have had my share of Bon Jovi on them.


  4. I often quote lyric in my posts. Song does have a way of moving us. Good post.

  5. I have found that many lyrics contain a double meaning...the vanilla one and the one that fits my life. I also find that music heals my soul at times. I, too, am a "child" of the 80's. I love music and as Baby Girl mentioned, I have a soundtrack for my life as well.
