lyrics

In 1987 I was seven years old
And vinyl records sure were worth their own weight in gold
I had my G.I. Joe's and a C64
And a Nintendo I could play with when the rain used to pour

One day my cousin said:
"Hey, you - I've got something to show you. It's from L.A."

Guns N' Roses came and saved my life
At last I had a dream I could follow
Guns N' Roses came and saved my life
That's one thing I will always be sure of

I sat there on the floor by the stereo set
The music was unlike anything I had heard yet
The cover was so awesome with a cross and five skulls
And I knew that a Les Paul would have to replace my dolls

'Cause this was really my calling
And everything started falling into place

Guns N' Roses came and saved my life
At last I had a dream I could follow
Guns N' Roses came and saved my life
That's one thing I will always be sure of

Axl, Slash n' Duff McKagan n' Steven
Izzy, Gilby, Matt n' Dizzy Reed and Teddy Andreadis

And now that I'm older
Now that I'm older than I was
As I look over my shoulder
I can still see those five skulls and a cross
