Better

Album: Chinese Democracy (2008)
  • No one ever told me when I was alone
    They just thought I'd know better, better.

    No one ever told me when I was alone
    They just thought I'd know better, better.

    The hardest part this troubled heart has never
    Yet been through now.
    We've healed the scars that got their start
    Inside someone like you now.

    Well had I known or I'd been shown back
    When I longed you'd take me.
    To break the charge that brought me home
    And all that won't erase me.

    I never would know that I could
    No matter what you'd pay me.
    Replay the part, you stole my heart
    I should have known you're crazy.

    If all I knew was that with you
    I'd want someone to save me.
    It'd be enough, but just my luck,
    I fell in love and baby all that I wanted was

    Now I know you better,
    You know I'd know better,
    Now I know you better!

    So bittersweet, this tragedy won't ask for absolution,
    This melody inside of me still searches for solution,
    A twist of fate, a change of heart,
    Kills my infatuation,
    A broken heart, provides the spark for my determination,

    No one ever told me when I was alone,
    They just thought I'd know better, better.
    Ooh, no one ever told me when I was alone,
    They just thought I'd know better, better. Writer/s: LIZ ROSE, TOMMY LEE JAMES, JEANETTE MCCURDY

  • Blane from Pocola, Okawesome song!
  • Nishit from Mumbai, --This album should be called Axl Rose - Chinese Democracy, because of it works, it's entirely due to his raspy, raw, powerful voice.
  • Elena from Paradise City, Australia, --No comments? :O
    Well, I've written my thoughts about Chinese Democracy in my blog already so I'm not going to write an essay, but all I can say is the songs, like this, are well written. I really liked this song. However a lot of the songs didn't sound like Guns n' Roses. Sure, you could tell it was Axl but the raw, real sound of Guns N' Roses was missing. It's a good album from Axl and Co. not from Guns N' Roses. Another thing I noticed about the album, and I don't know if it's just me, but a lot of the songs sounded like Metallica. And a lot of the songs had unneeded extras in it, like orchestras, too many changes and additional bits and pieces. Anyway, great song, I love the lyrics!
