It's my life, I am gonna live it my way

I am not a music buff. As a matter of fact, I don't listen to any music at all. I never listened to music while at school. I started listening to music while at my college during my bachelors degree. That was just an experiment and I soon lost my interest, if at all there was any. There was however one song that came out sometime during that period that really caught my attention, not because of the music but because of the lyrics. It was "It's my life" by Jon Bon Jovi.

The lyrics of the song is as follows

It's My Life lyrics

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

[Chorus:]
It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

[Chorus:]
It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

[Chorus:]
It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive

[Chorus:]
It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

I don't quite understand (neither did i then) some parts of the poem - like the Tommie/Gina/Frankie parts. But I just loved the general attitude expressed in the poem and the spirit. The core message in the poem aligns very closely with my vision regarding my life - It is my life and I am gonna live it my way, I wont bend, break or back down and will stand my ground and I refuse to become just a face in the crowd.

I like this song, too! It is very interesting that you don't like to listen to music. As for me, I like music. It gives me strength when I feel weak. It encourages me for nice deeds. And this is one of the songs which makes me feel good!
