Guns N' Roses - Street Of Dreams Lyrics




All the love in the world
Couldn't save you
All the innocence inside
You know I tried so hard to make you
Oh, to make you change your mind

And it hurts too much to see you
And how you left yourself behind
You know I wouldn't want to be you
Now there's a hell I can't describe

So now I wander through my days
And try to find my ways
To the feelings that I felt
I saved for you and no one else
And though as long as this road seems
I know it's called the street of dreams
But that's not stardust on my feet
It leaves a taste that's bittersweet
That's called the blues

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
Though it's what you planned
This much is true
What I thought was beautiful
Don't live inside of you
Anymore

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
Though it's what you planned
This much is true
What I thought was beautiful
Don't live inside of you
Anymore

What this means to me
Is more than I know you believe
What I thought of you now
Has cost more that it should for me

What I thought was true before
Were lies I couldn't see
What I thought was beautiful
Is only memories

Oh oh oh
What'd I tell you
Oh oh oh
That's
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Inside of you

  1. Red Darrski

    Because a soft song can be so fucking heavy

  2. Joel Veedler

    The 2000 demo was so much better w/ drums in the intro and Robin's little guitar licks.

  3. the chartrand

    any of the bands slaves still reading what do they pay in your region for reading youtube threads?

  4. Nathanael F. Coelho

    I miss u finck and buckthead

  5. Eduardo Rock

    Minha Segunda Música Favorita desse álbum♡ e ainda me faz lembrar de uma garota aff kkkk

  6. DeathZelta ewe

    Cant belive this song only have 300k views in 10 years. Very underrated.

  7. Stephen Walker

    When I listen to this, the lyrics suggest that Axl got a woman pregnant and she had an abortion and that is what this songs about. Anyone else hear this or I am reading to much into the lyrics?

  8. HealthyMealthy

    Axl Rose was good, but Chris Cornell was better than any musician from that time period. Axl himself said Chris Cornell had the best voice in rock.

  9. Davide Guida

    this is one of their most underrated songs

  10. Sun Yat-sen

    Hope that more Chinese can know this album, GUNS N ROSES reads our minds, very word hurts

  11. Cody Bryson

    Susan Holloway baby you were BEAUTIFUL ON THE OUTSIDE BUT WHATS ON THE INSIDE OF YOU SUSAN HOLLOWAY BABY SUCKS!!! UGLY AS A STINK DEMON ON THE INSIDE YOU SUSAN HOLLOWAY BABY. NOTHING GOOD CHRISTIAN ABOUT YOU SUSAN HOLLOWAY BABY OR ANYBODY LIKE YOU SUSAN HOLLOWAY BABY. NOT GOOD CHRISTIANS AT ALL SUSAN HOLLOWAY BABY YOU AND ALL YOUR CHICKENSHIT EVIL KIND ARE THE REASONS I CODY BRYSON RENOUNCED MY CHRISTIANITY

  12. The Pro Towel Waver

    really cheesy lyrics but a decent song

  13. Thora Friganza

    The way he's singing in the end some of those notes must be pretty high, not sure if it's falsetto or his real/natural voice or what it's called, amazing though no matter how he does it, can't stop listening to the ending

  14. E A

    Sounds just like Illusions GNR. But this time really works, without any dolphins nor Alice Coopers. Solid tune.

  15. MICHAEL DAMATO

    If you wanna hear some real pain in a song, the start has it all.

  16. Luca Carlon

    Masterpiece. Thank you Axl.

  17. Ursula Škratek

    😍😍

  18. Nick Hen

    Awesome!!!!!!!!

  19. Lotte v

    Im a 16 y/o girl and this is legit my favorite song, i saw gunsnroses performing live twice and i hope they are going to be planning a europe tour soon because i need to see them again

    Thora Friganza

    I love the ending off this song, his higher vocals sound so cool. I hope they will tour in Europe soon too as I missed this tour because off life. You are lucky to have seen them twice already, damn angry I'e never seen them. At least I hope the rumors about a new album are true, really hope it's good too, I'm bit nervous about that.

  20. Omar Rl

    2:37 to 4:18 literally the most part of the song is ecellent( for no say literally al the song).

    Mariano Abundiz

    The first guitar solo was Robin Finck. The 2nd was Buckethead.

    Omar Rl

    @Mariano Abundiz what can i say?? the songs of chinese democracy are so underrated

  21. Mariano Abundiz

    Probably the best song on the album. The string arrangement was Paul Buckmaster..RIP man. Beautiful first solo by Robin Finck and a touching outro by Buckethead.

  22. lilian peraza

    I love Axl's voice

  23. Antoine Turgeon

    In the end, Guns N' Roses singer moved his axels.

  24. Agimus78

    Axl sings so well in this song and in the end hit those REALLY high notes 👏

  25. Maximilian M

    多好一首歌,艺术无罪。

  26. Alfredo Vidalon Perez

    The Blues

  27. Matheus Viníciuszz

    Dont cry....chorei!

  28. Tone Mac

    when i listen to this song, i imagine an older Axl Rose in a courtyard on a winter's afternoon, playing chess on a stone table while drinking shots of whiskey on ice. He's done it all. He's received everything he ever wanted. He's writing and singing what's on his mind. Money has nothing to do with it. And rightly or wrongly - no original band members have anything to do with it either. "What i thought was beautiful - don't live inside hair metal anymore".

    Thora Friganza

    To me this song feels little sad too as it feels like he's sitting there all alone but at the same time with the powerful ending he doesn't really give a fuck, he's okay with how it is and how things turned out, he maybe lost some things but he experienced it all too. What I personally sort from get from listening to lot of the songs of this album, he has lost the person he loved (but sees she was not for him), his band, some friends but at the same time he has chanced/matured and in a way to something new, maybe not sure what yet. I really, really like this album, it feels like he was putting his heart out. Would be so interesting if they made a new album and see the path where he is now. Honestly now that I though about it the GNR albums little bit feel like Axl's life story (specially some of the songs), no need to write a book haha.

  29. Jussara Arundel

    Love Axl Rose's voice!!! Perfect pitches trump 'perfect b*tches'... aka negatives & trolls. Another stunning song capturing raw emotions & putting them into a melody which millions of strangers can all personally be moved by & relate to.... no small achievement by any rational person's assessment.

  30. Frank Grizza

    Unfocused,

  31. The Ancient Lantern

    What I thought was beautiful don’t live inside of you anymore.

  32. John Churchill

    Better piano ballad than November Rain IMO

  33. Draztikz YT

    i personally think this is the best song that gnr has ever released, even with slash and duff. Just the emotion put into this album compared to the rebellion that was put in their older stuff prior to 2000. But, this is an opinion, and we are all entitled to that. We also ALL share different views on music as a whole

  34. José Picado

    2019!!!

  35. Coffee GAMING network

    Don't cry , November rain, estranged, this I love

    El Koala Fumado

    Or Don't cry, November Rain, Estranged and This I Love

    Coffee GAMING network

    @El Koala Fumado I've never actually heard this I love

    El Koala Fumado

    @Coffee GAMING network You should. It has a solo heartbreaking

    Mariano Abundiz

    @Coffee GAMING network You had it on your list in your original comment lol. Anyway, one of the most complete guitar solos ever on that one. That's the Robin Finck special.

  36. whitney gram

    Beautiful

  37. brandon242

    what i thought was beautiful don't live inside of you anymore....damn why couldn't i have thought to say that to my x girlfriend

    Jenn Mills

    Hmmm I bet you wished you’d listened to this before huh?

  38. Viler Julian

    Saudades de 2011

  39. Daniel Coop

    Most the old timers say this album sucks! Iv always loved it anyway

    Thora Friganza

    It seems to me too that more people who didn't experience them back in the day like this album.

    Patriot Spring

    @Thora Friganza I love the old stuff and the new.

  40. Jesse Sauceda

    🤢🤮

  41. Michael Montalbano

    Axl is a genius. Amazing song writer

    Mariano Abundiz

    And an excellent producer..I love the string arrangement on this. I wish it was still on YT.

  42. Meryn Rossiter

    Thank god slash isn't on this album....

    Rob Graff

    Man you have no taste

    BisckenGamingC&B

    buckethead, robert finck and bumblefoot were definately innovators on this album, I love the guitars on "better".

  43. Meryn Rossiter

    Sculpting a musical wood carving that my Dad would have hated.....

  44. Andreza Fernandes

    Perfect ❤️

  45. Meryn Rossiter

    Axl's voice sounds like a hacksaw

    Chommy Tong

    I was thinking for of a bandsaw....my favorite saw, by the way.

  46. Meryn Rossiter

    Labour of love

  47. Camila Rosa

    2019👏👏👏🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🔥🤘😎🌎

    Matheus Viníciuszz

    Eu também.

  48. Tony Stark

    Uno que otro tono similar a november rain aunque son muy pocos los tonos, pero esta canción esta muy buena <3

    Tomaz

    @Marcos Oyola las primeras notas del piano en la canción son las mismas notas del inicio de november rain pero creo que una tonalidad arriba

    Andreas Loki

    Se ha de haber inspirado en november rain y estranged ya que ambas comparten una parte de la armonía

    Tony Stark

    @Tomaz exacto

    Tony Stark

    @Andreas Loki quien sabe pero puede ser duro muchos años creando el album

    el ayuwoki

    Esta es una canción totalmente diferente y nueva ,es lo que quería Axl alejarse de repetir una canción por eso hasta cambio su voz

  49. Aneasyone Soicanremember

    Such a powerful song

  50. RAM1

    Song #4 review of giving this album a chance.
    The voices of the Jolly Green Giant and Axel going back and forth were pretty entertaining but it feels like it's a parody of an exaggerated attempt to be the greatest ballad of all time. Kinda cringey. Good musicianship though, of course.

    Marcos Oyola

    Who the fuck Is Axel? Motherfckr

    Coffee GAMING network

    The singer

  51. Jacqueline Silva

    ♡♡♡♡

  52. That One Chris

    Such an amazing song!

  53. YUBIA

    Chinese Democracy feels like the mature part of GNR

    guitar covers 307

    Don't cry, November rain, Estranged, this i love

    Adolfo Neto

    This is not GNR, just axl Rose solo

    NEUTERLibs

    Yes and those old songs were all Axl too... but by mature, this album was a much for self reflective and introspective take. Sorry, better, this I love, etc is a more refined axl

    The Ingenieros

    In fact,slash want to continue with the hard rock and post punk music in guns n roses.axl didn't want this and he always wanted another direction of music like estranged stuff

    Martyr Messiah

    @The Ingenieros Slash is punked in da head! He should go join the motley crue and posion punks on their toilet tour(poor Joan Jett)!

  54. Jay Oz

    And now we know. Axl just wanted to do Broadway. Love it!

  55. Julio Agosto

    This is real good, not GNR tho.

    Chandler Onder

    Of course it is GNR, you just have to take that dick out of your ass long enough to realize that to fully enjoy it.

    Crispy as fuck

    @Chandler Onder W

    Julio Agosto

    @Chandler Onder I don't know about dicks or why anyone would want to do anything w/your lame ass tho. Still a solid album.

    Joel Veedler

    @Chandler Onder Guns N' Roses were five certain people, not just W. Axl Rose. Anything after Izzy was just nu-GNR w/ a bunch of replacements, including the Gilby era.

  56. Anel Diana

    3:49 - 4:46 adoro esa parte :')
    Maravillosa canción!

    Tony Stark

    yo vengo descubriendo el album ya tarde muchos la escucharon en el 2008 aunque en su tiempo apenas y conocía pocos grupos

    Abby

    @Tony Stark Gun N Roses son de la época de los 80 realmente pero este albúm es del 2008, yo también vengo descubriendo bandas, pero de los 80 y 90, en esa época estaban las mejores bandas, no como ahora.

    Matias Montenegro

    Este disco es como el vino mas pasa el tiempo y mejor es disco muy criticado pero el tiempo lo va poniendo en su lugar excelente disco

    Mariano Abundiz

    @Nicolas Romero Buckethead toco el segundo solo

    Alexis Barroso

    @Matias Montenegro excelente comentario, hasta a mi me parecía malisimo el disco, horrible, ahora lo escucho con un encanto de la puta madre, mas a esta canción y el final que es épico para lo que se creía una banda que no podía sorprendernos mas.

  57. Meryn Rossiter

    Thank you Axl

  58. Alban Pfisterer

    Axl Rose has an incredible voice.

    Jan Lánský

    @Joshboy future No problem, man. Piano has somewhere near 8 octaves if I´m not wrong :D

    Joshboy future

    @Jan Lánský I'd say my fart range is probably a good five - six octaves. I call my butt axehole Rose... Sorry couldn't help myself

    Davix

    Mmmh... It's clear he has lost something here

  59. Andy 55

    November rain

  60. Brutalikus The Unremarkable

    It's probably sacrilege to say this, but this might be my favorite Guns N' Roses song.

    Mark La Roche

    I don't know about that, but I do agree it's a great tune.

    Lain Leddy

    Mine as well. Being a very avid GNR fan, I find this to be the most touching and relatable songs for me. Therefore, it is my favorite! Rock on!🤘🏽🤘🏽🤘🏽💯💯

    YUBIA

    This one, sweet child o mine and night train are by far my favorite gnr songs

    guitar covers 307

    My favorite is definetly November rain, just a masterpiece

  61. ClaudiaMGR68

    I've found out this album a little bit late....  there are some very interesting songs....this is really good, both the music and the words...... Veryu good

  62. Diab Soule

    Shoulda left this one off the album

    AGS 15

    Diab Soule no

    Lain Leddy

    Absolutely not!

    Joseph B

    It's not the worst

  63. Edu Pimentel

    Que saudades... Meu maior sonho é ver essa banda ao vivo.

    Arthur Schwengber

    O meu tbm, odeio essa nova geração

    Victor Di Gália

    Prefiro o Guns 2009 2010 do que o Guns 2016 2017 2018 2019

  64. Normand Rioux

    Best guns ever

  65. Vomito Mentale

    this album is perfect.it begins ok,you understand that axl is trying new stuff.then he tries to much new stuff,it becomes repetitive and annoying.its a perfect bullshit.

    Arthur Samoy

    AGS 15 be. Can.

    Meryn Rossiter

    Vomito Mentale Slash is a shallow cunt

    Joseph B

    @Meryn Rossiter no tard

    The King

    Meryn Rossiter then don’t hang around with GnR. There are bound to be loads of slash fans 👍

    Geoffrey Foster

    @Vomito Mentale Fair point, what I read of it, but that comment/paragraph was a disaster. Were you drunk when you wrote it?

  66. I O.L.

    the blues.... not street of Dreams

  67. Juliana Fernandes

    Axl ❤

  68. RockNRollDad88

    Only song from this album that sounds a bit like Guns N Roses

    AGS 15

    Ren Zenith

    Joban Twisp

    Frank Mehrer

    Its ok,its better with Slash and duff

    The King

    True. I love slash and duff in the band, but axl is really good too!

    Mariano Abundiz

    @Frank Mehrer no way man. Slash couldn't play these solos. Duff is a bass god so..no problem there.

    That One Chris

    @SOCIETYDWELLIN GIFD the whole song is written in a prospective that's looking back. Past tense- a failed relationship. Why would the whole song be past tense, except for one line?

    SOCIETYDWELLIN GIFD

    I can't believe you can't hear what AXL says. I'm done.

    That One Chris

    @SOCIETYDWELLIN GIFD dude, the whole song is about the demise of the relationship, and how he's moved on, this person has changed and is not the person he once loved. Why would he want to change their mind when he's moved on? Not only that but if you go to Guns forums where they're discussing the meaning of the songs, my version of the lyrics is widely accepted among fans. Slow the song down and listen...It's plain as day.

    Cesar Estrada

    @That One Chris he's just arguing just to argue, let the child be cx

    Jean Tranberg

    Street Named Jesus

  76. Xander Blaisdell

    This is a such a underrated song

    Mariano Abundiz

    @Tangalanga YT Yes it was.

    Mariano Abundiz

    @Brian Williams Idk if I'd call that underrated. I think that songs like these, that don't make charts or aren't talked about more are leaning more towards underappreciated than anything else.

    fiendbastards

    Best album of gnr

    Bee Vee

    @Mariano Abundiz many people dont seem to get what these words mean for some reason
