Hi-fi Friday ~ Guns N’ Roses Ballads

I was gonna do today’s post about Meat Loaf since he played here in Cleveland on Wednesday, but I got stuck in a G N’ R rut today. The Loaf will have to wait ’til next Friday to get his feature!

I have to share the picture of Axl Rose that was going around on Facebook a couple days ago..

I laughed so hard at that picture! Seriously… I’m crying right now! Poor Axl. Guns N’ Roses could’ve been the biggest act in the history of music, in my opinion, had Axl and Slash been able to get along!

Okay… serious face… When one door closes another one opens, right? That’s what I’ve been told, at least…

I present to you two of the greatest Guns N’ Roses tunes ever produced…. These are, obviously, the ‘door closing’ type of songs if you will…

~ Estranged ~

When you’re talkin’ to yourself
And nobody’s home
You can fool yourself
You came in this world alone, alone

So nobody ever told you baby
How it was gonna be
What’ll happen to you baby?
Guess we’ll have to wait and see

Old at heart but I’m only 28
And I’m much too young to let love break my heart
Young at heart but it’s getting much too late
To find ourselves so far apart

I don’t know how you’re supposed to find me lately
And what more could you ask from me
How could you say that I never needed you?
When you took everything, said you took everything from me

Young at heart an’ it gets so hard to wait
When no one I know can seem to help me now
Old at heart but I mustn’t hesitate
If I’m to find my own way out

Still talkin’ to myself and nobody’s home, alone

So nobody ever told us baby
How it was gonna be
So what’ll happen to us baby?
Guess we’ll have to wait and see

When I find out all the reasons
Maybe I’ll find another way, find another day
With all the changing seasons of my life
Maybe I’ll get it right next time

Now that you’ve been broken down
Got your head out of the clouds
You’re back down on the ground and you don’t talk so loud
And you don’t walk so proud any more, and what for

Well I jumped into the river
Too many times to make it home
I’m out here on my own, and drifting all alone
If it doesn’t show give it time to read between the lines

‘Cause I see the storm getting closer
And the waves they get so high
Seems everything we’ve ever known’s here
Why must it drift away and die?

I’ll never find anybody to replace you
Guess I’ll have to make it through this time
Oh, this time without you

I knew the storm was getting closer
And all my friends said I was high
But everything we’ve ever known’s here
I never wanted it to die

And of course… the ultimate…

~ November Rain ~

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you
Don’t you know I feel the same’Cause nothin’ lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rainWe’ve been through this such a long long time
Just tryin’ to kill the painBut lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today
Walking away

If we could take the time
to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin’ that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin’ don’t refrain
Or I’ll just end up walkin’
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time…on your own
Do you need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time… on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

I know it’s hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn’t time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time…on my own
Sometimes I need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time… on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain
I know that you can love me
When there’s no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Don’t ya think that you need somebody
Don’t ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You’re not the only one
You’re not the only one

Enjoy your weekend folks!

Hug your children and love them every day
