Always variation (Jon Bon Jovi)


This Romeo should be bleeding
but you can’t see the blood.
It’s nothing but stagecraft
that backstage messed up.

I should be wooing Juliet
but I’m crumpled on the floor.
Why didn’t we rehearse more?
God, I want to throw up?

Now, I can’t do the Bard
with this wonky scenery.
Well, I guess I shouldn’t walk the boards.
Oh, why did they pick me?

And I’ll keep going, maybe – no – always!
And I’ll stay here until they boo me off – no – always!
I’ll be here till the intermission
Till the sweeper comes on
and says it’s time.
And I know in the papers, it’s me they’ll crucify,
And I’ll take it – maybe!
