Because We Can

Okay, okay, I know I've already used this as the song of the day recently, but here's the story:
Bon Jovi's album "What About Now" was released in the U.S. yesterday and I will be listening to it all day today. I can't share the music from my computer to this blog, which is why having YouTube videos available is so important. Because We Can is the only song that has a video on YouTube so far. Interestingly enough, it has THREE videos for it... This one is called The Beginning: Epilogue. I really like this one.
 
I have to add this tidbit about Because We Can...I can't help but sing along and dance in my seat or bop my head when it comes on. When we went out to dinner for Katana's birthday, it came on the radio in the restaurant. My head started bopping and I was (quietly) singing along~so quietly that Steve gave me the look (not a bad one) and asked if I was okay.
Oh yeah, back to current reality, right? ;-)
 
I can't thank Bon Jovi enough: for sending away reality, for bringing back reality, for keeping the faith and reminding me that I'm stronger than the obstacles in my path.
 
 
"Because We Can"

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand
Because we can

She's in the kitchen staring out the window
So tired of living life in black and white
Right now she's missing those technicolor kisses
When he turns down the lights

Lately he's feeling like a broken promise
In the mirror staring down his doubt
There's only one thing in this world that he knows
He said forever and he'll never let her down

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand
Because we can

TV and takeout on the coffee table
Paper dishes, pour a glass of wine
Turn down the sound and move a little closer
And for the moment everything is alright

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand

Because we can, our love can move a mountain
We can, if you believe in we
We can, just wrap your arms around me
We can, we can

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand

I don't wanna be another wave in the ocean
I am a rock not just another grain of sand
I wanna be the one you run to when you need a shoulder
I ain't a soldier but I'm here to take a stand

Because we can, our love can move a mountain
We can, if you believe in we
We can, just wrap your arms around me
We can, we can
Because we can
