rock bon jovi classic rock 80s hard rock


Never Say Goodbye is a song by American rock band Bon Jovi. It was released in 1987, as the 4th single off the band's hugely successful album Slippery When Wet. It was written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora. "Never Say Goodbye" reached #21 in the U.K. "Never Say Goodbye" is a love ballad, featuring drawn out vocals and a slow tempo, in contrast to the other tracks on "Slippery When Wet", which are of a much more upbeat, hard rock pace. The song describes the relationship between two young lovers, and their desire to stay together. The song is in the key of A major and progresses to C# minor G and D major. "Never Say Goodbye" started a trend of one love/power ballad being included on all Bon Jovi's following albums (songs such as "I'll Be There for You", "Bed Of Roses" and "Always"). It is still occasionally performed during live Bon Jovi concerts. The song was featured on some pressings of the band's Cross Road greatest hits album. A Mandarin cover of the song was recorded by Taiwanese rock group Power Station and released in 2009.

Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi

As I sit in this smokey room
The night about to end
I pass my time with strangers
But this bottle's my only friend

Remember when we used to park
On Butler Street out in the dark
Remember when we lost the keys
And you lost more than that in my backseat

Remember how we used to talk
About busting out - we'd break their hearts
Together - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin' on - we got to try
Holdin' on to never say goodbye

Remember days of skipping school
Racing cars and being cool
With a six pack and the radio
We didn't need no place to go

Remember at the prom that night
You and me we had a fight
But the band they played our favorite song
And I held you in my arms so strong

We danced so close
We danced so slow
And I swore I'd never let you go
Together - forever

Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
You and me and my old friends
Hoping it would never end
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
Holdin' on - we got to try
Holdin' on to never say goodbye

I guess you'd say we used to talk
About busting out
We'd break their hearts
Together - forever
