    Lyrics »

Well I've run through rainbows and castles of candy
I cried a river of tears from the pain
I try to dance with what life has to hand me
My partner's been pleasure my partner's been pain

There are days when I swear I could fly like an eagle
And dark desperate hours that nobody sees
My arms stretched triumphant on top of the mountain
My head in my hands down on my knees

Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze
Sometimes love's blind and sometimes it sees
Sometimes it's roses and, sometimes it's weeds
Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze

I've reached in darkness and come out with treasure
I've laid down with love and I woke up with lies
What's it all worth only the heart can measure
It's not what's in the mirror but what's left inside

Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze
Sometimes love's blind and sometimes it sees
Sometimes it's roses and, sometimes it's weeds
Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze

You gotta take it as it comes
Sometimes it don't come easy

I've run through rainbows and castles of candy
And I've cried a river of tears from the pain
I tried to dance with what life had to hand me
And if I could I'd do it all over again

Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze
Sometimes love's blind and sometimes it sees
Sometimes it's roses and, sometimes it's weeds
Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze
Sometimes the picture just ain't what it seems
You get what you want but it's not what you need
Sometimes it's a bitch sometimes it's a breeze
Well it's a breeze it's a breeze it's a breeze

(C) 1991 PRI Music, Inc./Bon Jovi Publishing (ASCAP)/PRI Songs, Inc./Pretty Blues Songs (BMI), All Rights Reserved. Used By Permission. Stevie Nicks: "Inspired by Jon Bon Jovi. When I first heard this song, I really didn't quite understand what Jon was trying to say...but over the two weeks that we sang it together (at my mike), I started to realize that Jon, without knowing it, had sort of taken a time machine back eighteen years and watched my life, the good parts...and the bad. It was not a love song, which of course, I had expected it to be; it was much more than that...to me. Bon Jovi had picked up on the fact, before meeting me, that there was no way he could know what I had lived through...without having lived through it with me...so he dreamed...He dreamed about what the notorious Stevie Nicks had been like...and what it had all done to her...the indulgences, the lifestyle. I felt that if he knew nothing else about me...he knew I had a strong instinct to survive. Someday, maybe all the people who did not go through this with us will understand; that considering the generation we come from...we are very lucky to be alive..."
