Guns N' Roses - Breakdown lyrics

We all come in from the cold, we come down from the wire
An' everybody warms themselves to a different fire
An' sometimes we get burned, you'd think sometime we'd learn
The one you love is the one that should take you higher
You ain't got no one, you better go back out and find her

Just like children hidin' in a closet, can't tell what's goin' on outside
Sometimes, we're so far off the beaten track, we get taken for a ride
By a parlor trick, or some words of wit, a hidden hand up a sleeve
To think the one you love could hurt you now is a little hard to believe
But everybody, darlin', sometimes bites the hand that feeds

When I look around an' everybody always brings me down
Well, is it them or me? Well, I just can't see but there ain't no peace to found
But if someone really cared, well, they'd take the time to spare
A moment to try and understand another one's despair
Remember, in this game we call life, that no one said it's fair

Breakdown (Let me hear it now)
Breakdown (Let me hear it now, yeah)
Breakdown (Let me hear it now)

I've come to know the cold, I think of it as home
When there ain't enough of me to go around, I'd rather be left alone
But if I call you out of habit, I'm out of love and I gotta have it
Would you give it to me if I fit your needs? Like when we both knew we had it
Now, the damage's done and we're back out on the run
Funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns
Just because you're winnin' don't mean you're the lucky one

Breakdown (Let me hear it now)
Breakdown (Yeah)
Breakdown (Let me hear it now)

There goes the Challenger, bein' chased by the blue, blue meanies on wheels
The vicious traffic squad cars are after our lone driver
The last American hero, the-the electric sintar
The demi-god, the super driver of the golden west
Two nasty Nazi cars are close behind the beautiful, lone driver
The police cars are getting closer, closer
Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile
Yeah, baby, they about to strike
They gonna get him, smash, rape
The last beautiful free soul on this planet

But it is written
If the evil spirit arms the tiger with claws
Brahman provided wings for the dove
Thus spake the super guru
D'you hear that?
