Sunday Samples 300

October 28, 2012

It’s a little early, but with Hurricane Sandy — “Frankenstorm”, in the typically overblown media parlance — bearing down on us I figure I can bend the calendar just a little. Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain”, the longest, most self-indulgent, overblown and overproduced number-one rock hit ever.

When I look into your eyes I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you, don’t you know I feel the same?

Nothin’ lasts forever and we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle in the cold November rain

We’ve been through this such a long, long time
Just tryin’ to kill the pain
But lovers always come and lovers always go
And no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today, walking away
And when you took the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head just knowing that you were mine, all mine

So if you want to love me then darling, don’t refrain
Or I’ll just end up walking in the cold November rain

Do you need some time on your own?
Do you need some time all alone?
Ooh, everybody needs some time on their own
Ooh, don’t you know you need some time all alone?

I know it’s hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn’t time be out to charm you?

Sometimes I need some time on my own
Sometimes I need some time all alone
Ooh, everybody needs some time on their own
Ooh, don’t you know you need some time all alone?

And when your fears subside and shadows still remain
I know that you can love me when there’s no one left to blame

So never mind the darkness; we still can find a way
Nothing lasts forever, even cold November rain

[Don’t you think that you need somebody?]
[Don’t you think that you need someone?]
[Everybody needs somebody]
[You’re not the only one]
[You’re not the only one]

[Don’t you think that you need somebody?]
[Don’t you think that you need someone?]
[Everybody needs somebody]
[You’re not the only one]
[You’re not the only one]

[Don’t you think that you need somebody?]
[Don’t you think that you need someone?]
[Everybody needs somebody]
[You’re not the only one]
[You’re not the only one]

[Don’t you think that you need somebody?]
[Don’t you think that you need someone?]
[Everybody needs somebody]
