I think it's one of their best songs even though I'm not too wild about These Days in general. My Guitar Lies Bleeding is one of those different songs about something most people don't sing about- the difficulties of songwriting.

I think I'm the only one voted for Pure Crap
Among all the BJ albums, the only back-to-back songs that can put me to sleep in no time: My Guitar Lies Bleeding followed by Letting You Go.

I don't think this song (or the whole These Days album) is underrated. It didn't sell well in the USA, but I believe it garnered quite a lot of critical acclaim, more than it actually deserved IMHO.

It's a great song, but I wouldn't say one of their best. mom hates this one.
Hey hey, I'm alive
It's a brand new day and I feel fine.
Here to say, I'm alive
Hey hey, I'm alive
Didn't think I'd make it to the other side.
Here to stay, I'm alive!

I really like this song, the lyrics & Richie's awesome guitar solo. Thank you Jon & Richie for writing this great piece of music.

There's a crazy mirror showing us both in 5-D,
I'm laughing at you you're laughing at me,
There's a room of shadows that gets so dark brother,
It's easy for two people to lose each other in this tunnel of love

i think the song is ok, but it just doensn't fit Bon Jovi. I can take or leave the whole These Days album, because its just not the Bon Jovi I love. I remember in an interview Jon talking about his songs being filled with faith, hope, and love and this album is devoid of that. I know when I write songs its easy to make a songs sound good when you are talking about dark and depressing subject matter. But to make an upbeat, rocking songs like Prayer, Born to be my Baby, Its My Life, ect. sound awesome and not cheesy, to me thats the Genius! Back to MGLBIMA, I really wouldn't want to see it live. It has some cool riffs but it will really be a downer as far as atmosphere. Lets just let it rock!
