We All Come in From the Cold.

I can remember exactly where I was the first time I heard Guns N Roses. It felt like getting hit in the head with a brick — it was so loud, so hard, so good. That first album, Appetite for Destruction, was pretty raw. They were a troubled band and they flamed out pretty quickly, but before they did, they dropped Use Your Illusion I & II. There’s a lot there and a bit of it was popular. But my favorite has always been Breakdown. Maybe because we all feel a little broken down from time to time. Maybe because it’s good songwriting or maybe because it just rocks.

The best of it:

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

  1. I didn’t know you like Guns N Roses! I’ve always liked them too. I hadn’t heard Breakdown before. Really great lyrics! 🙂
