Jon Bon Jovi: – I wnt to thank Lorne, Marcy, and Steve for letting me be here! Who says you can’t go hooooome?!

Bon Jovi: [ singing ]“I spent 20 years trying to get out of this place
I was looking for something I couldn’t replace
I was running away from the only thing I’ve ever known.
Just like a blind dog without a bone
I was a gypsy lost in the twilight zone
I hijacked a rainbow and crashed into a pot of gold.
I been there, done that, I ain’t lookin’ back on the seeds I’ve sown
Saving dimes, spending too much time on the telephone.
Who says you can’t go home?

Who says you can’t go home?There’s only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone.
Who says you can’t go home?Who says you can’t go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There’s only one place left I want to go.
Who says you can’t go home?
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright!

I went as far as I could, I tried to find a new face
There isn’t one of these lines I would erase
I lived a million miles of memories on that road.
With every step I take I know I’m not alone
You take the home from the boy, but not the boy from his home
These are my streets, the only life I’ve ever known.
who says you can’t go home?

Who says you can’t go home?There’s only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone.
Who says you can’t go home?Who says you can’t go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There’s only one place left I want to go.
Who says you can’t go home?
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright!
Who says you can’t go home?
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright!

It doesn’t matter where you are, it doesn’t matter where you go
If it’s a million miles aways or just a mile up the road
Take it in, take it with you when you go.
who says you can’t go home?

Who says you can’t go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There’s only one place left I want to go.
Who says you can’t go home?
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright!
Who says you can’t go home?
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, its alright
Who says you can’t go home?
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, its alright
Who says you can’t go home?”
