  • 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 Writer/s: BILLY FALCON, JON BON JOVI

  • Erika from Vernon, CtStevie's comments about recording this song are great: she says she and the girls thought Jon Bon Jovi had the "best face" and "best butt" of any guy they'd worked with!
