It’s my life

It’s My Life – Bon Jovi

This song.. always hits home to me. It came on last night at the gym and it reminded me that this is my life. And I’m going to live it my way. Sometimes I think we all get stuck in whatever is happening and we start just going with the flow. When we stop and look around we have lost sight of the goal we were once seeking. We have taken a different path, lost track, and become displaced. It’s not always a bad thing but is it what you want? 

This song makes me stop. It makes me think about where I want to go. How I want to live and who I want to be. Not always a pleasant or comfortable experience realising you’ve gotten lost in the commotion. But it’s a very necessary thing too. 

I wonder if this happens to anyone else? Maybe there’s a particular song that makes you stop and reasses your life? 


Lyrics

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted

No silent prayer for the faith-departed

I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd

You’re gonna hear my voice

When I shout it out loud

It’s my life

It’s now or never

I ain’t gonna live forever

I just want to live while I’m alive

(It’s my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just want to live while I’m alive

It’s my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground

It’s for Tommy and Gina who never backed down

Tomorrow’s getting harder, make no mistake

Luck ain’t enough

You’ve got to make your own breaks

It’s my life

And it’s now or never

I ain’t gonna live forever

I just want to live while I’m alive

(It’s my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just want to live while I’m alive

It’s my life

You better stand tall when they’re calling you out

Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down

It’s my life

And it’s now or never

I ain’t gonna live forever

I just want to live while I’m alive

(It’s my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said

I did it my way

I just want to live while I’m alive

(It’s my life)
