What Do You Got?

Album: Greatest Hits (2010)
  • Everybody wants something, just a little more
    We're makin' a living, and what we're livin' for
    A rich man or a poor man, a pawn or a king
    You can live on the street, you can rule the whole world
    But you don't mean one damn thing

    What do you got, if you ain't got love
    Whatever you got, it just ain't enough
    You're walkin' the road, but you're goin' nowhere
    You're tryin' to find your way home, but there's no one there
    Who do you hold, in the dark of night
    You wanna give up, but it's worth the fight
    You have all the things, that you've been dreamin' of

    If you ain't got someone, you're afraid to lose
    Everybody needs just one, someone to tell them the truth
    Maybe I'm a dreamer, but I still believe
    I believe in hope, I believe the change can get us off our knees

    What do you got, if you ain't got love
    Whatever you got, it just ain't enough
    You're walkin' the road, but you're goin' nowhere
    You're tryin' to find your way home, but there's no one there
    Who do you hold, in the dark of night
    You wanna give up, but it's worth the fight
    You have all the things, that you've been dreamin' of

    If you ain't got love, it's all just keeping score
    If you ain't got love, what the hell we doing it for

    I don't wanna have to talk about it
    How many songs you gotta sing about it
    How long you gonna live without it
    Why does someone somewhere have to doubt it
    Someday you'll figure it out

    What do you got, if you ain't got love
    Whatever you got, it just ain't enough
    You're walkin' the road, but you're goin' nowhere
    You're tryin' to find your way home, but there's no one there
    Who do you hold, in the dark of night
    You wanna give up, but it's worth the fight
    You have all the things, that you've been dreamin' of

    If you ain't got love, it's all just keeping score
    If you ain't got love, what the hell we doin' it for
    Woah, I ain't got, if you ain't got
    What do you got if you ain't got love
    What do you got if you ain't got love
    What do you got if you ain't got love Writer/s: BRETT JAMES, RICHIE SAMBORA, JON BON JOVI
