Bon Jovi wordt opgericht in 1983 en bestaat uit zanger Jon Bon Jovi, gitarist Richie Sambora, toetsenist David Bryan en drummer Tico Torres. In 1986 heeft de rockband uit New Jersey hun eerste hit met You Give Love A Bad Name en een reeks van vele hits volgt.

In 2000 scoort de band hun eerste nummer 1-hit in de Top 40 met de single It's My Life. Daarna wordt het succes langzaam minder en wordt de top 10 alleen in 2002 nog gehaald met de single Everyday en in 2005 met Have A Nice Day.

In 2014 stapt Richie Sambora om onbekende redenen uit de band. In 2016 verschijnt het laatste album van de band This House Is Not For Sale maar hits worden er niet meer gescoord.


Songtekst

I wish that life was like it is in the movies
'Cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark lonely road
At the end he's got a smile on his face

But when they threw me out to the lions
No one saved me as I fell from your grace
And no one wrote me new lines for what I said wrong
And what I did wrong I could not erase

And this is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much I'm sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears, inside that I can't hide

I wish that I could be your white knight in armor
With an army just to bring you back home
But I'll admit I'm scared of dialing your number
But someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can't it be like it is on TV?
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me

This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much I'm sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears, inside, I can't hide

This real life, this real love
These are real wounds I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real

I always thought that our love was a storybook tale
God knows that I'd never dreamed in the end it would fail

This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much I'm sure of
These are real tears
These are real fears, inside, I can't hide

This real life, this is real love
These are real wounds I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real
