“Till We Ain’t Strangers Anymore” is a song penned by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and Brett James in 2007. The song tells the story of two lovers who are slowly beginning to feel like they do not know each other anymore because of the challenges that are happening in their relationship. They have done some things to hurt each other, but they want to make things work. They want to feel like they are in love with each other and not feel like they are strangers to one another.
“It ain’t too late to get back to that place
Back to where, we thought it was before
Why don’t you look at me
‘Til we ain’t strangers anymore.”
