Co-written with the immaculately good song writer Jason Isbell, explaining the country vibe for sure.

This one is very cool! It's single material

EDIT: I don't get the complaining about the lyrics. They are good. Bon Jovi is about cheesy lyrics, and I'm fine with this.
Bad Bon Jovi lyrics are about cats in trees.

Are you misquoting it on purpose?

And again, it IS very self centered. Jon says he regrets hardly anything but never does He seem to include the Other Person's feelings.

And Jon has been about: live your life, No regrets...since IML.

Obviously, our interpretations differ a lot ! But I guess thatís the beauty of any art form. Seeing the same thing in many different ways.

I couldnít be happier about what Iíve heard of the new album so far. I actually managed to get the 7th of June off from work. (My boss was quite reluctant at first but thanks to my negotiating skills I finally got the day off). I plan to wake up at midnight by the time the album gets released. I will put on my worn out jean jacket, leather pants, boots and sunglasses and turn the volume up to ten on my headphones. Canít wait!

This shows you shouldn't misjudge a song based a on 5 second promo, by Bon Jovi promoting "Forever"

It's better than I expected, based on the 5 second promo, but again you can only judge the song only listening on it in full.

She is in a totally different league compared to Jon
The lyrics I've seen/heard from her new album have been awful! The title track especially has some baffling stuff; she's not a singer/songwriter sharing intimate moments, she's a stadium act with professional co-writers who launders her dirty laundry in public - or rather: A woman in her mid 30s playing the role of a teenager because that's what her persona is and what her fan base wants. The lack of believability alone ruins it for me (just like Jagger was never a convincing tortured artist).

Ah right, the song. It's pretty standard, but honestly sounds a lot more like a typical radio rock song than Legendary IMO (although they're both "radio rock circa 201X", not 2024). It's enjoyable enough, the energy is certainly more HAND (the album) than 2020.

Well each one to his one but she doesnt have too many Song writers in it and Jon does have quite a few on the new album himself.

Plus Taylor does seem a Lot smarter. I didnt Luke her earlier Albums but the the COVID records some of the lyrics from her nrw one are pretty poetic, IMO

And you say I abandoned the ship
But I was going down with it
My white-knuckle dying grip
Holding tight to your quiet resentment
And my friends said it isn't right to be scared
Every day of a love affair
Every breath feels like rarest air
When you're not sure if he wants to be there

You swore that you loved me but where were the clues?
I died on the altar waiting for the proof

saw in my mind fairy lights through the mist
I kept calm and carried the weight of the rift
Pulled him in tighter each time he was drifting away
My spine split from carrying us up the hill
Wet through my clothes, weary bones caught the chill
I stopped trying to make him laugh
Stopped trying to drill the safe
Thinkin, how much sad did you think I had
Did you think I had in me?
Oh, the tragedy ...

You know you're good when you can even do it
With a broken heart

I can hold my breath
I've been doing it since he left

Cause once your queen had come
You treat her like an also-ran
You didn't measure up
In any measure of a man

Who's gonna tell me the truth
When you blew in with the winds of fate
And told me I reformed you
When your impressionist paintings of Heaven
Turned out to be fakes
Well, you took me to hell, too
And all at once, the ink bleeds
A con man sells a fool

Sorry I can't see Taylor being more than superficial. The only song of hers I quite enjoyed was The Great War, and it's about a couple fighting hahaha

Aaaanyway, back to Bon Jovi.. during this same time (o covid days) we got Luv Can, which has one of the most beautiful lyrics from Jovi's catalog...

Edit: went after that song. It wasn't written by Taylor alone. She needed someone to do it too.
