"Always" is a power ballad by Bon Jovi. It was released as a single from their 1994 album Cross Road and went on to become their best-selling single, with a million copies sold in the U.S. and more than 3 million worldwide. The song reached #4 in the U.S. Billboard charts, #2 on the Mainstream Top 40 and was also an international hit (#1 in Australia, #2 in the United Kingdom and #4 in Germany).
The song was originally written for the soundtrack to the 1993 film Romeo Is Bleeding. After disliking the film, the band decided not to lend the song to the producers; upon release, the film was a critical and box office disaster. Jon Bon Jovi left the track on his shelf and forgot about it, until a friend found the track and convinced him to re-record and release it on the band's Cross Road compilation album. The music video featured Jack Noseworthy, Carla Gugino, Jason Wiles and Keri Russell.
