GUNS N' ROSES - CHINESE DEMOCRACY


THERE WAS A TIME

Broken glass and cigarettes
Writin’ on the wall
It was a bargain for the summer
An I thought I had it all
I was the one who gave you everything
The one who took the fall
You were the one who would do anything
The one who can't recall
Where she was while she was sleepin’
In another woman's bed,
Or the doctor’s or the lawyer’s
Or a stranger that she met
If there's nothing’ I can gain from this
Or anything at all
It'd be the knowledge that you gave me
When I thought I'd heard it all

It was a long time for you
(It was a long time)
It was a long time for me
(It was a long time)
It'd be a long time for anyone
(It was a long time)
Looks like it's meant to be

Social class and registers
Cocaine in the hall
All the way from California
On the way to your next call
To those non-negotiations
To simulate a cause
For the betterment of evils
And your ways around the laws
That keep you up and sitting pretty
On a pedestal or bed
And now you're sleeping like an angel
Nevermind who gave you head
If there's something I can make of this
Or anything at all
It'd be the devil hates a loser
And you thought you had it all

It was a wrong time for you
(It was the wrong time)
It was a wrong time for me
(It was the wrong time)
It was the wrong time for everyone
(It was the wrong time)
Looks like I’ve got to see for myself

If I could go back in time
To the place in my soul
There all alone
Lonely tear drops, ooh
Are calling you
But I don't want to know it now
'Cause knowing you
It won't change a damn thing
But there was a time

Yeah, there was a time
Didn't want ta know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
N’ I don't wanna know it now
Yeah, there was a time
Didn't want ta know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
N’ I don't wanna know it now

Oh, I would do anything for you
There was a time
I would do anything for you
I would do anything for you
There was a time

There was a time
I would do anything for you
Yeah there was a time
I would do anything for you
Didn't want ta know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
N’ I don't wanna know it now
I would do…
Didn't want to know it all
Anything for you
Didn't wanna know it all
N‘ I don't wanna know it now

There was a time…
There was a time
