Guns N' Roses - Better Lyrics




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

Was heal the scars
That got their start
Inside someone like you now

For had I known
Or I'd been shown
Back when how long it'd take me

To break the charms
That brought me harm
And all but would erase me

I never would
Or thought 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 maybe

All that I wanted was

Now I know you better
You know I 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 faith
A change of heart
Cures 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

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

All that I wanted was

Now I know you better
You know I know better
Now I know you better

I never wanted you to be so full of anger (anger)
I never wanted you to be somebody else
I never wanted you to be someone afraid to know themselves
I only wanted you to see things for yourself

All that I wanted was

Now I know you better
Now we all know better
All that I wanted was

Na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na
(cont, thru verse)

If I were you
I'd manage to
Avoid the invitation

Of promised love
That can't keep up
With your adoration

Just use your head
And in the end
You'll find your inspiration

To choose your steps
And won't regret
This kind of aggravation

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

    🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸

  3. Golden Stone

    They did this one when I saw them in 2017. Much better song than I think it gets credit for.

  4. sleep walker

    I like the whole album, even though I regard it more as an Axl Rose side project than a proper Guns 'n Roses album. I've been a fan since 1987. Saw them at Donington 1988. Love all the albums but I have never really rated Axl as a great live singer.

  5. Vlady Cos

    FCK y Ax and Slash I Love you..but G`n R 4 fcking Life..My hole Life are fckg Rock and Roll Baby

  6. Carlos Hernandez

    The First song I listen from this album it makes Me want to listen the entire album ... Axl still gets the style

  7. LogoAttitude

    Chinese Democracy was basically Nine Inch Nails meets Linkin Park

  8. marco proietti

    Se caricano i pani consecutivi anticipati da cartelloni domestici e rompono il cazzo cn distrazioni e multe anche io gioco mo le vedi

  9. soulplayer1981

    im gnr fan since appetite came out.. great song.. dont understand al the hate

  10. TECHNOIR

    Absolute brilliance from Ax, can only have been written from abject emotional pain, love the falsetto into the abyss. Bliss. Great tune.

  28. J. Giorno

    This song is fucking dope.

  29. nmckeown101

    That solo at 3:40 could just keep going as far as I'm concerned.

  30. mariano rodriguez

    I love this álbum & this song Buckethead & Robin Finck... Delicius guitar solos 💙😍

  31. Lyrixx

    I wish geffen records would have pushed this album harder this would have been the next welcome to the jungle

  32. Variedades

    É... pra quem ouviu Don’t Cry, Welcome To The Jungle etc... essa música pop soa muito estranha.

  33. Nestor Daniel Avalos

    the best song of Guns And Roses

  34. The Dope Show

    Ima edit this to young axl's voice

  35. Ripped Swines

    It finally reached 1.1m views :,)

  36. SkrillexBR

    3:39 Perfect :)

  37. Bob Builder

    Decent album, just one huge mistake made. Should never have put the Guns n Roses name on it, new band name or just Axl and I think it would have been a lot better received.

  38. andres rc

    Temazo!

  39. nedar giordano

    Very well written song

    Simon Hunter

    you could be right. history will judge it

    Dalaxy Loves 방탄소년단

    I can't believe I'm just now listening to this

    Simon Hunter

    @Dalaxy Loves 방탄소년단 i was late hearing it as well

    emanuel martinez

    First album I ever bought with my own money when I was 15. My uncle got me into rock music when he heard me listening to Linkin Park and he introduced me to Nirvana, Queen, the Smiths, pink floyd and of course GnR. I just had to buy this album because if how much he loved this band and honestly it's a very good hard rock album not the best in the world but it doesn't deserve the so so reviews it got by fans

  62. Anthony Warren

    This album is amazing

  63. Livianus Nelloh

    i dont know but i like this..

  64. Brian Murphy

    I've been a Gunz fan from the beginning. When this album came out it was disappointing to a lot of the Gunz fans, myself
    Included. The album in itself is Brilliant. But I expected a GnR record and this just wasn't it. I love GnR, Axl, Slash and all the rest of it. However, in my mind this is not a GnR album. I refer to this a Axl and Friends. It's basically an Axl Rose solo album.

  65. Sean Conroy

    One of the best songs ever especially the solo

  66. Gabriel Debortoli

    Robin Fink is a genius

  67. Tony1981 Oliveira

    Leva em consideração ele foi e é " Guns" o resto não curti e nunca foi quem curte Guns, que nem eu,sou de todos" civil war",dont' cry,estranged,sou Guns n'roses e fuck y ok

  68. Carolina Castro

    Back when this came out, I hated it.
    Finally, today I came back to find the reason.....






    I couldn´t find it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I guess I was too young when I first listened, LOL. This is actually good.

    Keith Petit de Mange

    Some great gems on this album

  73. Dave Buks

    I love this song. I would always put it on my TOP10 GnR list. I really love Chinese democracy album.

  74. ALMA GARIBALDO

    The love

  75. The Pro Towel Waver

    fuck dr strangelove

  76. AJAX 214

    It sounds very Linkin Parky

    Angelo papas

    Technically speaking these songs were recorded before anyone had even heard of Linkin Park.

  77. man icori

    In this great song old age is already felt

  78. TAVOZZY

    Nadie nunca me dijo cuando yo estaba solo solo es mejor mejor (8)

  79. Franco vikernes

    Este album es genial. No sé porque es tan infravalorado 😒

  80. thelma lucas

    i love axle slash too

  81. Joe Sudela

    This...fucking...song bro! Masterpiece.

  82. bombing cannon

    I'm a huge GNR fan but honestly when I listen to the chinese democracy it just doesn't fell like GNR

    Thora Friganza

    Maybe partly because of the completely different musicians, like the guitarists sound so different from Slash, then prehaps because of trying to get a bit more modern sound too (like in this song wich specially doesn't sound like GNR). And this album feels too more like something personal from Axl Rose than from GNR, like the lyrics, though many of the GNR lyrics were from his point of view too. How I see it and propably others too, maybe not about eerything.

    Are Jay Cee

    Thought that to but after re listening to the album again lately fucking genius got to admit I was soooo wrong fucking brilliant.

    Share the rocking and kicking full album. Everyone shall listen. There is no democracy in China.

  87. Alex Burchell

    Damn, this album really shouldn't have been released as G'N'R...

    It's got some seriously cool songs on it (like this one), but sounds absolutely NOTHING like what people think of as G'N'R. I can absolutely understand the hate from that angle.

    As a G'N'R album, it's total shite.

    As an album in its own right, it's pretty damn good.

  88. The Pro Towel Waver

    anyone hear after three dollar pyramid leaked?

    The Pro Towel Waver

    @Killua D. Zoldyck what do you think of the demo? i think its sounds really similar to better but it needs some solos and vocals of course

    One song that reminded me of the old GnR
