  • I remember the first time
    It was one of the worst times
    You lied right to my face

    Oh the way that you stood there
    You gave me a dead stare
    The kind you cant erase

    When the angels break their wings
    They crash and stumble
    Just like we struggle
    If we could have this one night over
    We gotta get it right
    We gotta get it right this time

    Cause we were young and indestructible
    (Gotta get it right this time)
    With any luck we'll be unstoppable
    (Gotta get it right this time)
    And we could last forever

    I remember the last time
    More than all of the past times
    And how you crawled away

    You fought with a passion
    Such over reaction
    But you never fought to stay

    When the angels break their wings
    They crash and stumble
    Just like we struggle

    If we could have this one night over
    We gotta get it right
    We gotta get it right this time

    Cause we were young and indestructible
    (Gotta get it right this time)
    With any luck we'll be unstoppable
    (Gotta get it right this time)

    And there's a chance for use tonight
    And there's a chance to make it right

    Cause we were young and indestructible
    (Gotta get it right this time)
    With any luck we'll be unstoppable
    (Gotta get it right this time)

    And we could last forever Writer/s: JAMES MICHAEL, NIKKI SIXX
