  • This one goes out to the man who mines for miracles
    This one goes out to the ones in need
    This one goes out to the sinner and the cynical
    This ain't about no apology
    This road was paved by the hopeless and the hungry
    This road was paved by the winds of change
    Walking beside the guilty and the innocent
    How will you raise your hand when they call your name?
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    We weren't born to follow
    Come on and get up off your knees
    When life is a bitter pill to swallow
    You gotta hold on to what you believe
    Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
    And that your saints and sinners bleed
    We weren't born to follow
    You gotta stand up for what you believe
    Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

    This one's about anyone who does it differently
    This one's about the one who cusses and spits
    This ain't about our livin' in a fantasy
    This ain't about givin' up or givin' in
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    We weren't born to follow
    Come on and get up off your knees
    When life is a bitter pill to swallow
    You gotta hold on to what you believe
    Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
    And that your saints and sinners bleed
    We weren't born to follow
    You gotta stand up for what you believe
    Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
    Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

    We weren't born to follow
    Come on and get up off your knees
    When life is a bitter pill to swallow
    You gotta hold on to what you believe
    Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
    And that your saints and sinners bleed
    We weren't born to follow
    You gotta stand up for what you believe
    Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
    Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

    We weren't born to follow, oh yeah
    We weren't born to follow, oh yeahWriter/s: RICHIE SAMBORA, JON BON JOVI
