Bon Jovi Breaks 90,000 Hearts With “Always” Live At Wembley, 1995 | Society Of Rock Videos

Bon Jovi’s These Days Tour Heads To London

The band that’s seen a million faces and rocked them all rocked at least 90,000 more when they performed to Wembley Stadium’s packed house in 1995! Bon Jovi’s These Days Tour featured the band’s entire catalog, including hits like ‘Always’. It’s performances like this that make me wish I’d been old enough to enjoy Bon Jovi during their glory days of massive arena tours, because let’s face it – there wasn’t a band alive that could top Bon Jovi’s charisma and live energy!

Bon Jovi tried to make conceptual music videos, and failed when they released the video for ‘Runaway’. After that, the band stuck to straight performance videos, showcasing their charisma and live energy.

What a killer performance! Between the energy of the crowd and the band feeding off of that energy, this rendition of ‘Always’ goes down in the books as one of Bon Jovi’s top performances, hands down. It’s emotionally charged, and Jon Bon Jovi undoubtedly broke about 90,000 hearts with this tale of eternal love in the face of unspeakable heartbreak.

Despite this performance being over 20 years ago, Bon Jovi is still performing with that same level of charisma and energy, never sacrificing quality for the sake of a great show.

+ Always lyrics +

This Romeo is bleeding, but you can’t see his blood
It’s nothing but some feelings
That this old dog kicked up
It’s been raining since you left me
Now I’m drowning in the flood
You see I’ve always been a fighter
But without you I give up

Now I can’t sing a love song
Like the way it’s meant to be
Well,I guess I’m not that good anymore
But baby, that’s just me

Yeah I, will love you, baby
Always and I’ll be there
Forever and a day, always

I’ll be there, till the stars don’t shine
‘Til the heavens burst and the words don’t rhyme
I know when I die you’ll be on my mind
And I’ll love you, always

Now your picture’s that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life
Some that made us laugh
Some that made us cry
One that made you have to say goodbye

What I’d give to run my fingers through your hair
Touch your lips, to hold you near,
When you say your prayers, try to understand
I’ve made mistakes, I’m just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near
When he says the words
You’ve been needing to hear, I’ll wish I was him
‘Cause these words are mine, to say to you
‘Til the end of time

Yeah I, will love you, baby
Always and I’ll be there
Forever and a day, always

If you told me to cry for you, I could
If you told me to die for you, I would
Take a look at my face
There’s no price I won’t pay
To say these words to you

Well, there ain’t no luck in these loaded dice
But baby, if you give me just one more try
We can pack up our old dreams, and our old lives,
We’ll find a place, where the sun still shines

Yeah I, will love you, baby
Always and I’ll be there
Forever and a day, always

I’ll be there, till the stars don’t shine
‘Til the heavens burst and the words don’t rhyme
I know when I die you’ll be on my mind
And I’ll love you, always
Always
