"Thank You for Loving Me" is a song by Bon Jovi. Written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, it was released in 2000 as the third single from their Grammy-nominated album Crush. Bryan Adams also did a version of this song in 2003.

The song is a love ballad in the style of previous Bon Jovi hit singles such as "Always" and "Bed of Roses". The music video of the song was filmed in Rome, Italy at the Trevi Fountain.

In an interview on Top of the Pops 2, Jon revealed the title of the song was inspired by actor Brad Pitt's character in the film Meet Joe Black.
