This House is Not For Sale song lyrics by Bon Jovi

The first single from the album of the same name.

Featuring a new line up with Phil X on guitar who replaces the eponymous Richie Sambora, This House is Not for Sale is a strong first single release by the band, similar in presence to their 'We Weren't Born to Follow' song from their album, The Circle.

The song was released on 16 August 2016, the first official release since the Burning Bridges album. The song is notable for being produced by John Shanks – it’s his return to production duties following his turn at the helm for the Have a Nice Day record. It is not a cover of the Ryan Adam's song of the same name.






It’s not a surprise that Jon Bon Jovi so named the album and the song as he has some prior form with the song “This is Our house” which has become a bit of a sports team anthem. Bon Jovi has described the mean of the album really ‘going back to the beginning’. Jon has said the CD record is about integrity, that it matters and that Bon Jovi is at a stage where it has nothing left to prove.

There has been no release date for the album yet – it’s sure to be a big seller for 2016 and will probably be downloaded as cheeky MP3 by many fans.

Featuring classic Bon Jovi call to action lyrics that say nothing and everything at the same time (a mark of many good songs), this song sits along side and other Bon Jovi single as a classic track.

Lyrics to This House is Not For Sale by Bon Jovi

These four walls have got a story to tell
Oh-oh, oh-oh
The door is off the hinges, there's no wishing them well
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Outside the sky is coal black, the streets are on fire
The picture windows cracked, and there's nowhere to run
I know, I know, this house is not for sale

I set each stone and I hammered each nail
This house is not for sale
When every memory is lived and my dreams all fail
This house is not for sale
Coming home, I'm coming home

Swirl my spike into the ground and I stake my claim
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Standing on the dirt where they'll dig my grave
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Now I built these walls, it's in my veins
No time for lookin' back, the world is out the door
This heart, this soul, this house is not for sale

I set each stone and I hammered each nail
This house is not for sale
When every memory is lived and my dreams all fail
This house is not for sale
Coming home, I'm coming home

This house was built on trust
That's what it is, it always was
No wrecking ball could knock it down
This house was built on higher ground

I set each stone and I hammered each nail
This house is not for sale
When every memory is lived and my dreams all fail
This house is not for sale
Coming home, I'm coming home

Coming home, I'm coming home
(This house is not for sale)
Coming home, I'm coming home
(I'm) coming home, I'm coming home
(This house is not, is not for sale)
