1. bon jovi'nin de these days albümünde aynı isimli bir şarkısı vardır, sözleri güzeldir.

    i lost all faith in my god, in his religion too
    i told the angels they could sing their songs to someone new
    i lost all trust in my friends, i watched my heart turn to stone
    i thought that i was left to walk this wicked world alone

    tonight i'll dust myself off
    tonight i'll suck my gut in
    i'll face the night and i'll pretend
    i got something to believe in

    and i had lost touch with reason
    i watched life criticize the truth
    been aiting for a miracle
    i know you have too

    though i know i won't win
    i'll take this one on the chin
    we'll raise a toast and i'll pretend
    i got something to believe in

    if i don't believe in jesus, how can i believe the pope
    if i don't believe in heroin, how can i believe the dope
    if there's nothing but survival, how can i believe in sin
    in a world that gives you nothing, we need something to believe in.

    if i don't believe in jesus, how can i believe the pope
    if i don't believe in heroin, how can i believe the dope
    if there's nothing but survival, how can i believe in sin
    in a world that gives you nothing, we need something to believe in.
  2. poison'un, power to the people albümünden bir şarkı. sözleri:

    will i see him on the tv
    preachin' 'bout the promised land
    he tells me to believe in jesus
    and steals the money from my hand
    some say he was a good man
    but lord i think he sinned, yeah
    twenty-two years of mental tears
    cries a suicidal vietnam vet
    who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
    to find his country didn't want him back
    their bullets took his best friend in saigon
    our lawyers took his wife and kids, no regrets
    in a time i don't remember
    in a war he can't forget
    he cried "forgive me for what i've done there
    cause i never meant the things i did"

    chorus:
    and give me something to believe in
    if there's a lord above
    and give me something to believe in
    oh, lord arise

    my best friend died a lonely man
    in some palm springs hotel room
    i got the call last christmas eve
    and they told me the news
    i tried all night not to break down and cry
    as the tears rolled down my face
    i felt so cold and empty
    like a lost soul out of place
    and the mirror, mirror on the wall
    sees my smile it fades again

    chorus
    sometimes i wish to god i didn't know now
    the things i didn't know then
    road you gotta take me home

    solo
    i drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
    like bodies in an open grave
    underneath the broken old neon sign
    that used to read jesus saves
    a mile away live the rich folks
    and i see how they're living it up
    while the poor they eat from hand to mouth
    the rich is drinkin' from a golden cup
    and it just makes me wonder
    why so many lose, so few win

    chorus
    you take the high road
    and i'll take the low road

    sometimes i wish to god i didn't know now
    the things i didn't know then
    and give me something to believe in
  3. ayrıca ramones'in sözlerine hasta olduğum çok güzel bir parçasının ismi.pretenders'ın da çok güzel bir coverı var! (bkz: tribue to ramones)
    sözleri:

    wish i was someone else
    i'm confused, i'm afraid, i hate the loneliness
    and there's nowhere to run to
    nothing makes any sense, but i still try my hardest
    take my hand
    please help me man
    'cause i'm looking for something to believe in
    and i don't know where to start
    and i don't know where to begin, to begin
    if i was stupid or naive
    trying to achieve what they all call contentness
    if people weren't such dicks and i never made mistakes
    then i could find forgiveness
    take my hand
    please help me man
    'cause i'm looking for something to believe in
    and i don't know where to start
    and i don't know where to begin, oh no
    i can't be someone else
    i don't feel that it's hopeless
    i don't feel that i'm useless
    i can't throw it all away
    i need some courage to find my weakness
    and with your love, i know with all my heart i can win
    'cause i'm looking for something to believe in
    and i just need something to believe in
    i'm looking for something to believe in
    and i just need something to believe in
  4. hem sözleri olsun hem muziği olsun oldukça başarılı bir şarkı bence. these days albümünde öne çıkan şarkılardan biri. sonlara doğru jon bon jovi delirir ve "i dont believe in" diyerek son noktayı koyar.
  5. soz konusu the ramones sarkisinin pretenders coveri bir dirilis , bir yasam mucadelesi olarak gorulebilir, pek de bir olayi olmayan bir bar seferinin donusune daha yakisabilecek bir sarki bilmiyorum, niye bu kadar spesifik konusuyorum, hayatimizin ne kadar da siradan ve herkesin hayatinin birebir kopyasi oldugunu karisik kafalarimiza ragmen daha iyi anlayabilecegimiz bir zaman yoktur da ondan, yalnizsan yalniz oldugun, yasin, mesleki anlamda bir sikim olamadigin hep boyle anlarda aklina gelir, iste o an hayata ucundan kiyisindan tekrar tutunabilmek icin birseylere ihtiyac vardir, kimisi bir kadina tutunmaya calisir, kimisi odasinda tuttugu johnnie walker red'e, bense cd calarima bu sarkiyi takarim...
  6. memory man isimli albümünde yer alan süper bir aqualung şarkısı.

    you talk too much
    maybe that's your way
    of breaking up the silence
    that fills you up
    but it doesn't sound the same
    when no one's really listening

    we stumble into our lives
    reach for a hand to hold
    and any wonder
    we need to find
    a certain something, certain

    turn out the light
    and what are you left with?
    open up my hands
    and find out they're empty
    press my face to the ground
    i've gotta find a reason
    just scratching around
    for something to believe in
    something to believe in

    you have too much
    you're spending all your time
    collecting and discovering
    it's not enough
    and no matter how you try,
    you never find the one you want

    we stumble into our lives
    without a hand to hold
    and any wonder
    we need to find
    a certain something, certain

    turn out the light
    and what are you left with?
    open up my hands
    and find out they're empty
    press my face to the ground
    i've gotta find a reason
    still scratching around
    for something to believe in
    something to believe in

    c'mon, c'mon...
  7. bon jovi'nin, halen sırrı çözülemeyen, efsanevi albümü these days'den bir parça. sadece tanrıya değil, çevresine inandığı her şeye inancını kaybetmiş birisini anlatır.

    "hayatta kalmak dışında her şey yalansa, günah diye bir şeyin varlığına nasıl inanabilirim?"
  8. smash albümünün gizli bombalarından. özellikle noodles'ın back vokalleriyle insanı imana getiren bir şarkı. gotta get away'den sonraki favori.
  9. bon jovi'den depresyonun tanımı. hayatı sevenlerin uzak durması gereken isyan haykırışı.
