Guns N' Roses - The Garden Lyrics




You know you're all alone
Your friends they aren't at home
Everybody's gone to the garden
As you look into the trees
You can look but you don't see
The flowers seem to tease you at the garden
Everybody's there, but you don't seem to care
What's it with you man, and this
garden

TURNED INTO MY WORST PHOBIA,
A CRAZY MAN'S UTOPIA
IF YOU'RE LOST NO ONE CAN SHOW YA,
BUT IT SURE WAS GLAD TO KNOW YA
ONLY POOR BOYS TAKE A CHANCE,
ON THE GARDEN'S SONG AND DANCE,
FEEL HER FLOWERS AS THEY WRAP AROUND,
BUT ONLY SMART BOYS DO WITHOUT

You can find it all inside
No need to wrestle with your pride
No you ain't losin' your mind
You're just in the garden
They can lead you to yourself
Or you can throw it on the shelf
But you know you can look inside
For the garden

I WASN'T REALLY SCARED
LOST MY VIRGINITY THERE,
TO A GYPSY WITH BLOND HAIR
BUT NOW NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE
LIKE A MOUSE INSIDE A MAZE
WANDERING ROUND 4 DAZE
WITH A SMILE UPON MY FACE,
I NEVER WANNA LEAVE THIS PLACE
ONLY POOR BOYS TAKE A CHANCE,
ON THE GARDEN'S SONG AND DANCE,
FEEL HER FLOWERS AS THEY WRAP AROUND,
BUT ONLY SMART BOYS DO WITHOUT
TURNED INTO MY WORST PHOBIA,
A CRAZY MAN'S UTOPIA
IF YOU'RE LOST NO ONE CAN SHOW YA,
BUT IT SURE WAS GLAD TO KNOW YA
BYE BYE
SO LONG, BYE BYE
IT'S GLAD TO KNOW YA
BYE BYE
BYE BYE
AW...SO LONG

  8. Sebastian WEISH

    LA MEJOR BANDA DEL MUNDO ...Y AHORA LOS TONTOS ESXUCHAN REGUETON A MALUMA Y BUGS BANY JAJAJA

  9. assurdo888

    To me, this songs not just about a brothel, or brothels in general, it's also about drugs. And the bye bye so long at the end can mean Alice and Axl waving their goodbye to heroin, or at the contrary a character that decides to permanently live fucked up and says bye bye to society and reality, maybe it's not just fucked up on the heroin thing, but also totally gone for hallucinogenic drugs and maybe something more...

  10. peter mulder

    .....takes me right back.


    I love GnR.

  11. Joey Eduardo Fritayon

    Q buen tema la concha de la Lora!

  16. Dark Annie

    Para mi esta va a ser la colab más legendaria, porque es una de las pocas (si no es la única) vez que dos de mis artistas favoritos han colaborado

  17. Robert Jones

    One good album and then Axl's ego got in the way. Such a talented voice too but took GNR down a path from where they should have been.

  18. The Alex Alejandro

    Happy Birthday Alice Cooper

  19. John Hendricks

    Axle, Hi it's me Louie. Guess what it is time for some new shit. Still love G&R but time for some new shit.. Thank you???

  20. Brian Doyle

    I remember watching their show in the Ritz New York on MTV introduced by Elvira and I was blown away already a fan but 🤯🤯🤯...and around that time I bought an album called bleach by an unknown band called Nirvana,but can't remember what I did with it because it's not in my vinyl collection.... shit. .🤔🤔🤔🤔🤑🤑

  21. Márcio santos

    Top das top nostalgia pura saudades dessa época maravilhosa

  30. matt mostowicz

    It's hard for younger people born in the 90's and later to imagine that back then Times Square was a real dump. Disney bought everything out in the early 90's and turned it into a tourist area for the other 364 days in the year when Dickinson Clark wasn't broadcasting the countdown. It used to be nothing but strip clubs and whack shacks. Now a days it's full of tourists and overpriced coffee.

  31. Francisco Dias Leite

    That's the best song in the album Use Your Illusion I. Slash at his best at 2:15 🥰

  32. Pablo Cuenca

    2020 la mejor banda Guns N roses

    Awesome!

  38. pornoonsteroids

    Can anyone help me out with this question? When I was in high school I had heard that this video was very controversial and could only be played late at night. But for the life of me I could never figure out what was so controversial.

    Marge719

    hmm, good question - i f you lived in a deeply christian neighbourhood, possibly this song was seen as blasphemic?

    The Rival

    pornoonsteroids probably the suggestive dancing/lyrics

    I'm perplexed. I hear GNR for years and NEVER heard this song. WTF?! haha i even thought it was a new song, but Axl was too young in thumbnail :p

  54. fmloser

    Shannon Hoon back-vocal !!!

  55. scottiesmusic

  56. Man Fernan

    Am I dreaming or the guy at 4'49 looks like Martin L. Gore (Depech Mode) ?

  57. Bucky Preseau

    these two albums are so much fun to revisit. so much great music. some absolute gems here.

  58. Erick Landaburu

    ellos vienen en marzo a ecuador, de cabeza al concierto, ojala que toquen the garden.

  59. Ben Cross

    I don't get why they don't play this anymore Axl could sing it I bet

  60. George Hood

    I still think if you're going to have a debate between Joe Biden & Donald Trump and they want to kick each other's ass, I think Get in the Ring and Welcome to the Jungle would be a fair choice. You guys broke my heart. I was a fan ever since the summer of 2004. I think Erin Everly was more attractive in my opinion. Stephanie Seymour had that way about her. I've had a few girls like that like me. My Grandfather owned a Mercedes Benz. A lot of people thought I was like that too..... please don't get carried away, but if you want, go ahead.... I'd rather live in the East Coast though...

  61. George Hood

    I'll do a press release if you want to me about your band and we'll go from there. I don't know, I still think people hated me because I idolized you. I went to Mount Pleasant High School. But who knows? My mother could be lying through her teeth.

  62. George Hood

    I thought you guys sold out by getting back together. But hey maybe, you've all changed. I really haven't followed you guys since 2014. I really didn't like how you endorsed Obama but hey, maybe I was in the wrong....

  63. George Hood

    I voted for Trump but yes, I totally get what you're saying now. He's an asshole. I have Type 1 Bipolar Disorder and I actually thought I was your son in high school which isn't true. I look nothing like you obviously even though we share some of the same genetic markers but not exactly. Coca Cola is my drug of choice. My mother comes from the Steele family and my father comes from the Hood family and my mother works for the state of DE.

  64. George Hood

    It's awesome that you're a Lakers fan. Have you checked out LeBron James? It's still kind of weird to have him on the team. You know what my dream job is? To work for the New York Giants organization.

  65. George Hood

    I'd like to have a father like you. My father is still in my life but -_-. He's my legal guardian -_-.

  66. George Hood

    How's stepfather these days..... -_-.

  67. George Hood

    You still kick ass Axl. My mother Linda claims she partied with you in Wilmington, DE.

    "The Garden"

    You know you're all alone
    Your friends they aren't at home
    Everybody's gone to the garden
    As you look into the trees
    You can look but you don't see
    The flowers seem to tease you at the garden
    Everybody's there, but you don't seem to care
    What's it with you man, and this
    garden

    TURNED INTO MY WORST PHOBIA,
    A CRAZY MAN'S UTOPIA
    IF YOU'RE LOST NO ONE CAN SHOW YA,
    BUT IT SURE WAS GLAD TO KNOW YA
    ONLY POOR BOYS TAKE A CHANCE,
    ON THE GARDEN'S SONG AND DANCE,
    FEEL HER FLOWERS AS THEY WRAP AROUND,
    BUT ONLY SMART BOYS DO WITHOUT

    You can find it all inside
    No need to wrestle with your pride
    No you ain't losin' your mind
    You're just in the garden
    They can lead you to yourself
    Or you can throw it on the shelf
    But you know you can look inside
    For the garden

    I WASN'T REALLY SCARED
    LOST MY VIRGINITY THERE,
    TO A GYPSY WITH BLOND HAIR
    BUT NOW NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE
    LIKE A MOUSE INSIDE A MAZE
    WANDERING ROUND 4 DAZE
    WITH A SMILE UPON MY FACE,
    I NEVER WANNA LEAVE THIS PLACE
    ONLY POOR BOYS TAKE A CHANCE,
    ON THE GARDEN'S SONG AND DANCE,

    TURNED INTO MY WORST PHOBIA,
    A CRAZY MAN'S UTOPIA
    IF YOU'RE LOST NO ONE CAN SHOW YA,
    BUT IT SURE WAS GLAD TO KNOW YA
    BYE BYE
    SO LONG, BYE BYE
    IT'S GLAD TO KNOW YA
    BYE BYE
    BYE BYE
    AW...SO LONG

  87. El Jefe Scientist

    80% of the times square shots disappeared a few years after this video. Rudy Giuliani became mayor Jan 1 1994.

  88. Douglas Fisher

    Alice Cooper FTW.

  89. Erick Landaburu

    The Garden is written about Charles Manson and the Manson Girls. Axl has met Manson and at least one of his girls, namely Gypsy. The girls today are into gardening. They tend the garden daily. Manson has ATWA web site. It stands for air, trees, water, animals. Rose makes reference to a crazy man, life inside, trees, Gypsy and the garden. The duet is wth Alice Cooper because Alice wrote several songs about Manson in the early 70's. Copper was not selected by chance for this song. And now you know it now, you're welcome.
