Bon Jovi: It's My Life Meaning
Song Released: 2000
It's My Life Lyrics
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud
And It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna...

You have one life to live and you are here for a short time on this earth. It is up too you to make your life great and live to your full potential. Don't give up on your dreams. Don't waste your life living up to everyone elses expectations. In the long run everyone else may be happy and you are miserable. Have fun, enjoy, create great times and memeories. Remember it's your life!!

This song has a good meaning that people need to listen too more. we spend are entire life living for someone else our parents, spouse, all this stuff and fitting in the static quo. Even though live your life how you want it what makes you happy. This song may have different meaning to different people and change with time. It also can mean to people to do anything for love the lyrics "The Hart Is a Open Highway" and it's much better explained in the video of this boy risking his life to get to a a girl at a bon jovi concert in a tunnel.

Yeah, this song is more or less about doing the things you wanna do despite what other people say. you're only gonna live for the years you're gonna live, so live them.

This song is super cool. I think this is an adult who has just passed 18 and he gets his freedom.

Live your life to the fullest. Stop pretending to be someone you're not and I am freaking aware that this is so common but BE YOURSELF. Go YOLO just like pewdiedie in Outlast series or let the trouble finds you like Harry Potter or maybe shrink between atoms like ant man or touch the infinity stone like Peter Quill, froze yourself in the ice for 65 years like Steve Rogers or maybe I don't freaking know now. Just... Don't just exist, live.

Like the song says, it's your life. Don't listen to what I tell here unleast you agree with it. You do not have to listen to people who keep telling you what to do. IT'S YOUR FUCKING LIFE.

I think that this song is basically Y.O.L.O and that its supposed to be telling someone you lived your life your way and let me live mine my way.

This song is mainly about how in a world where everyone is taught to follow the crowd and not stand out too much and how Jon is yelling out at us all to just ignore that. We are who we are, and nothing can change that. Even if you spend your entire life pretending to be a Barbie doll teenage girl, he's saying to be YOU and not someone else. It's about ignoring the snide remarks of your peers if it means being happy. It means you never know when your life will be over, so you may as well enjoy it. Make your choices, and regret nothing. Mistakes are the only things that are truly yours, so take credit for them. Viva la viva!

all that i know is that frankie is frank sinatra who wrote the song "my way" and that it means that he is sick of being bossed around and told what to do.

it means what it says its very stiaght forward. if your looking for comfort from this song you aint gonna get it. if you've lost your faith this song aint gonna helpo you any. it says " i am not going to just stand there your going to hear what i have to say. i wil scream and shout but you will hear it." live wile you can and dont hold back on it. stand your ground stand up for what you believe in. life isnt easy it will only get better if you make it so. when the songs says " " better stand tal when they call you out. dont bend, dont break, baby, dont back down," it is saying you cant be all talk, you gotta really stand up and not be afride to say what you mean, dont be scared just do it.

Enjoy your life while you can because you wont live forever.

"Like Frankie said I did it my way" is based on Frank
Sinatra´s- "My way"

Basically, it says do whatever you want because it's your life and it's too short to not make the most of it
