The early 90s were a time of great change in the music world, with grunge and hip-hop starting to dominate the airwaves. Bands that ruled the 80s, like Bon Jovi, who had amassed a string of successful albums by the end of the decade, had to adapt or die. Bon Jovi opted for the former, as they proved on their fifth studio album, Keep The Faith. Not only did they change, however, they did so without losing their hard-rocking sound.

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. 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, babe, that's just me.
It was released as a single from their greatest hits album Cross Road and went on to become one of their best-selling singles, with a million copies sold in the US and more than 3 million worldwide. The song was originally written by Jon Bon Jovi for the soundtrack to the film Romeo Is Bleeding , starring Gary Oldman as a corrupt cop and Mafia aide who is renounced by his wife. After being unimpressed by a preview screening of the movie — which was a critical and box office flop  — he decided not to lend "Always" to the producers. Bon Jovi commented, "The script was great: the movie wasn't. There is also an alternate version of the video that is just the band performing the song. The song's powerful lyrics and power ballad sound made "Always" an instant hit at live concerts, but the high demand on Jon Bon Jovi 's vocals have seen it rarely performed in concert following the band's — These Days Tour. The song is featured on the band's Live From London video. Since then, the song in its original version has been occasionally performed during every tour. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
