Jon Bon Jovi Is Waiting

by Catty Marlboro

THEY'RE blowing up my whole world
Making me one confused little girl
I'm not really sure what to feel,
turning into my own pile of ash & steel
Just when I know I am about to cry
I think about the man who'll never say goodbye

Jon Bon Jovi is waiting
Oh, oh I'm halfway there
Jon Bon Jovi is waiting
And I'm living on a prayer

One wild night I'll be his little runaway
sharing cigarettes or at least the same ashtray
He'll smile and laugh and tell me his story
And the rest will be a blaze of glory …
Oh, I hold on to my pillow with a sigh
thinking about the man who'll never say goodbye

Jon Bon Jovi is waiting
Oh, oh he's halfway here
Jon Bon Jovi is waiting
And we're living on a prayer

I know I'm crazy wishing on a rock star
but hopes and dreams being what they are
I'm not going to deny what makes me happy
just because reality's so crappy
So when I think I'm too deep in the forest
I hear Sambora taking up the chorus …
