Day 47: What Do You Got?

Bon Jovi.  I’m not really a fan of his.  I mean, I do know a couple of his songs but I never really listened to them in a I-want-to-hear-this kind of way.  Mostly I just listen to his songs because it’s what was on the radio or something like that.

Today’s song, however, is different.  I came across this song when I was listening to my Songs for Japan album.  And, what do you know?  I ended up liking this song.  Hahaha, it came as a bit of a surprise for me.

Anyways, today’s song is What Do You Got?

The song provides us one interesting question: What do you got when you ain’t got love?

I’m quite interested in how people would answer that question.  What would your answer be?

This song really has great lyrics.  It can even pass as an anthem of some sort.

Below are the lyrics for the song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Everybody wants something, just a little more
Makin a livin’, ain’t what we’re livin’ for
A rich man or a poor man, a pawn or a king
You can live on the street, you can rule the whole world
But it don’t mean one damn thing

What do you got, if you ain’t got love

Whatever you got, it just ain’t enough
you’re walkin’ the road, but you’re goin’ nowhere
Tryin’ to find your way home, but there’s no one there
Who do you hold, in the dark of night
You wanna give up, but it’s worth the fight
You can have all the things, that you’ve been dreamin’ of

If you ain’t got someone, you’re afraid to lose
Everybody needs just one, someone… to tell them the truth
Maybe I’m a dreamer, but I still believe

I believe in hope, I believe that change can get us off our knees

What do you got, if you ain’t got love
Whatever you got, it just ain’t enough
you’re walkin’ the road, but you’re goin’ nowhere
Tryin’ to find your way home, but there’s no one there
Who do you hold, in the dark of night
You wanna give up, but it’s worth the fight
You can have all the things, that you’ve been dreamin’ of

If you ain’t got love, it’s all just keeping score
If you ain’t got love, what the hell we doing it for

I don’t wanna have to talk about it
How many songs I gotta sing about it
How long you gonna live without it
Why does someone somewhere have to doubt it
Someday they’ll figure it out

What do you got, if you ain’t got love
Whatever you got, it just ain’t enough
you’re walkin’ the road, but you’re goin’ nowhere
Tryin’ to find your way home, but there’s no one there
Who do you hold, in the dark of night
You wanna give up, but it’s worth the fight
You can have all the things, that you’ve been dreamin’ of

What do you got, if you ain’t got love
Whatever you got, it just ain’t enough
you’re walkin’ the road, but you’re goin’ nowhere
Tryin’ to find your way home, but there’s no one there
Who do you hold, in the dark of night
You wanna give up, but it’s worth the fight
You can have all the things, that you’ve been dreamin’ of

If you ain’t got love, it’s all just keeping score
If you ain’t got love, what the hell we doin’ it for
Woahhh, I ain’t got, if you ain’t got love
What do you got if you ain’t got love
Oooh what do you got if you ain’t got love
