Sambora, Richie - Ballad Of Youth Lyrics




Growing up today
There's many mountains you must climb
You're not the only one
'Cause everybody's on that line
Hey mister know it all
What do you recommend
You think you know the answers
But the questions never end

Young hearts better hold on
Beyond the innocence
Your youth is gone
So look in your mirror
You got nothing to lose
Don't waste your time away
Thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues

Born outta passion
To a world gone cold
Ya wear it on your shoulders
It's a heavy, heavy load I know
Love and its emotions
Come knocking at your door
Young hearts will be broken
And time's the only cure

Young hearts better hold on
Beyond the innocence
Your youth is gone
So look in your mirror
It'll tell you the truth
Don't waste your life away
Thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues

Temptation makes us fall from grace
But the angels were sinners
And the sinners saints
Forgive yourself cause we're all the same
Everybody rides on the karma train

Young hearts
Better hold on
Beyond the innocence
Your youth is gone
Look in your mirror
It'll tell you the truth
Don't waste your time away
Don't waste your life away, no, no
Live today
There's no time to lose
Cause when tomorrow comes
It's all just yesterday's news

All just yesterday news

    Hey, mr Sambora. I don’t know if you are ever going to read this. Just want to say that your lyrics and your guitar skills are fucking awesome. I really understood your reasons to leave Bon Jovi. You gotta a lot of talent and I’m a big fan of all your songs. You got an unique sound, and that’s a thing that every musician always try to get. I hope -really hope- everything is going alright with your life. You were a really big inspiration when I was playing guitar back in the day. Hope someday you want to make a Southamerican tour. I’ll be waiting to see you live here in Lima, Peru. Keep it real man. All the best.

  24. Aneesh Gupta

    Temptation makes us fall from grace
    But the angels were sinners
    And the sinners saints
    Forgive yourself cause we're all the same
    Everybody rides on the karma train

    Truth about life innocuously slipped into a rock song !! Nice.

  25. Paul John

    Bon Jovi´s voice

  51. Dafyd Maddz

    Quite clear how much Sambora was THE SOUND of Bon Jovi.. JBJ had the pipes and the looks absolutely.. And was always excellent, but I've always praised Richie for the overall sound, songs and thus the success.

  76. Kelly Batson

    bad ass

  77. Max Lopez

    ele e´ meu guitarrista preferido. Vejam meu perfil então.

  78. Paul Kreugel

    Should have been a Bon Jovi song with Richie and Jon sharing vocals.

  79. Alicja Urbaniak

    Oh man. Lots of talent for one video. :) Why so few people noticed him as a solo artist? He has good, strong voice also good plays guitar (I guess I’m not pro) It sounds good! Even way more than good...

  80. Laura Scatena

    Good stuff! I forgot how much I liked this album.

  81. Lisa Burgess

    The world Trade Center and Ritchie Sambora singing in the street

  82. TIME!

    I've been looking for this fucking song for 27 years, literally!...i heard the song in the background of a french tv show and i fell in love with it...i recorded the tv show on vhs at the time but never been able to get the name of the artist nor the song,lost the tape too...i've seen myself singing the tune in Paris record stores but never had any answer...until a good soul put the french tv show online (it was a "saved by the bell" special) I shazamed this motherfucker in a blink of an eye and BANG!!! "Richie Sambora - Ballad of Youth"...AT LAST!
    Thank You shazam and Big Up to Richie Sambora for this timeless beautiful song.

  83. lillebo

    Dayum!! This One rocks my Soul..

  84. Jimmy Young

    Great voice & and fine solo album. Jon & Richie brought out the best in one another, that's why Bon Jovi became so successful.

    Be strong Richie. Millions look up to you brother

  85. inez noseworthy

    All I can say is OMG

  86. Trads

    Richie ma piękny głos.Mocniejszy i głębszy od Jona.Tak bardzo jestem dumna z tego ,że z pochodzenia jest Polakiem.Kocham cię Richie.😘

  87. Krrrimmi

    His experimental solo album in 1991. That made them a little fight w/ Jon Bon Jovi. 🎸

  88. Bradley Huddleston

    Dude reminds me of Stevie Ray.

  89. Tears for Fears》 Amor eterno》

    Richie is so sexy and hot 😍

  90. Daniel Fronc

    I never understood why he stayed with a light weight, teeney bopper pop/very lightweight rock group like Bon Jovi. To each their own I suppose.

  91. Bohdana Latalová

    OH MY GOD SEXY RICHIE 💗 I LOVE YOUR SEXY LOOK 💖 I LOVE YOUR SEXY SMILE 💋 I LOVE YOUR SEXY VOICE 💖 I LOVE YOUR SEXY FIGURE 💖🎸💖🎸💖 I LOVE YOU SO MUCH RICHIE 💋💖💋💖💋💖💋💖💋💖💋💖💋
