TWAT Lyrics



T.W.A.T. (There was a Time by Guns n’ Roses)

Oooooooohhhhh
Broken glass and cigarettes,
writing on the wall,
it was a bargain for the summer,
and I thought I had it all.
I was the one who gave you everything,
the one who took the fall,
you were the one who would do anything,
the one who can't recall.

Where she was while she was sleeping,
in another woman's bed,
or the doctors or the lawyers,
or a stranger that she met.
If there's nothing I can gain from this,
sponsored links
or anything at all,
it'd be the knowledge that ya gave me,
when I thought I'd heard it all.

It was a long time for you,
it was a long time for me,
it'd be a long time for anyone,
but looks like it's meant to be.

Social class and registers,
cocaine in the hall,
all the way from California,
on the way to your next call
to those non-negotiations,
to simulate a call,
all the bad of learning evils and
your ways around the laws
that keep you UP AND sitting pretty,
on a pedestal of MEN
and now you're sleeping like an angel,
near the man who you give head

If there's something I can make of this,
or anything at all,
it'd be the devil hates a loser and
you thought you had it all.

It was a wrong time for you,
it was a wrong time for me,
it was the wrong time for everyone
but looks like I’ve got to see for myself

If I could go back in time to the place
in my soul, there all alone,
lonely tear drops,
ooh, are calling you.
but I don't wanna know it now,
'cause knowing you it won't it change a damn thing.
but there was a time.

(Solo)

yeah, there was a time,
didn't wanna know it all,
didn't wanna know it all and
I don't wanna know it now,

yeah, there was a time,
didn't wanna know it all,
didn't wanna know it all and
I don't wanna know it now,

(Solo)

Oh, I would do anything for you,
there was a time,
I would do anything for you,
oh, I would do anything for you,
there was a time.

(Solo)

There was a time,
I would do anything for you,
yeah there was a time,
didn't wanna know it all,
didn't wanna know it all,
I don't wanna know it now,
didn't wanna know it all,
didn't wanna know it all,
I don't wanna know it now

How does it feel to be wrong? I'm sure it's not lonely there, so many others before you have made the assumption that it'll never see the light of day. At one time, I was the same way. But Axl took it at his own pace, why should he rush his baby, something that means so much to him personally, for your benefit and enjoyment?

By the way, let's look at the definition of "tentative": A) probationary: under terms not final or fully worked out or agreed upon, B) doubtful: unsettled in mind or opinion, C) A trial; an experiment; Of or pertaining to a trial or trials; essaying; experimental; Uncertain, D) A temporary or unsure position, hypothesis, or theory.

It's as though you all (and there have been many, MANY others before you who have all used the same argument and leg to seemingly stand on) ignore the word 'tentative' and focused solely on 'release date'. Axl said in the same letter that he would let us know if something happened. He kept his silence, making it more than obvious to us that this was not to be. I have to agree with Jarmo, I believe it was who said something like this: if the man doesn't say, "It's no longer uncertain, THIS is the date it's coming out on", why assume? And as you'll notice, when word came out from the source that it was being dropped November 23rd, well, it's out. Other countries have it. People in the U.S. already have it. Tomorrow, we'll (or I'll) have it.

As for them sounding like a tribute band, once again, you're incorrect. They don't sound the same, no, but I think Axl has made the point many times of saying that it's not the same band, it's not the same direction, it's not always going to be the same sound. Get over it. Either love it or hate it, because you're whining (it's a constant whine, by the way) won't change a damn thing.

As for Axl's voice: man, no one cares. He still sounds fantastic. So words of old-school Guns - Take it to the end of the line: BEAT IT!



Chinese Democracy | Reviewer: AlwayzErect | 4/4/2008

No Chin Dem for 2008, just like all the other years. No album in the history of mankind is worth waiting 17 yrs for, not even classical composers would take that long & this is just a rock band. Bumble is just fast frills with no soul, finck hacks n razor blades the notes away souding awful, the drummer sounds like a fill-in, the others dont exactly jump out at you in any way & as for Axl his voice is inconsistent, he is close on 50 yrs old & even some of the new songs are almost a decade old by now & they havn't even been officially released. I saw them live in 2007 and they sounded like a brilliant tribute act trying to take off n fly, but not quite managing it.
In March 2006 they release a tentative date for the album to drop.
In March 2008 they announce a new management team, 2 years to get a management team in place? WTF & still no album, its unbelivable how slow this project is, we should all be dead by the time it arrives. Oh yeh TWAT is a great song lol.



Guns N' Roses New v.v Old | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/26/2008

This song is brilliant and so are many others that will apparently be on the forthcoming album. You know, I have to agree with Ethan (the first post), it's not the same band from 1987-1993 and it's not supposed to be. This new band is brilliant. Robink Finck plays with such feel, emotion and soul. That's Robin's solo on this song. Richard Fortus is an incredible guitarist with the feel and emotion of Johnny Thunders. He's excellent!! Tommy Stinson, one need not say anthing more about him, he was in the Replacements, brilliant punk band! This band will prove to be genius!! It is still Guns N' Roses because this music is just as good as anything that has come before it. The songs Catcher In The Rye, Chinese Democracy, Better, IRS, The Blues, Madagascar are all brilliant songs. The old GN'R probably had more in common with the Rolling Stones and Sex Pistols where this new GN'R are more in line with Queen and Pink Floyd (in terms of song scope). Either way, this band still fuckin' rocks!! Don't give up on them, great music, now a days, is hard to come by. Support good art!!



Give 'Em A Break!!! | Reviewer: Ethan | 1/22/2008

I have to disagree, I think this new line up will prove a lot of you wrong out there, VR is an alright band, and I think that these new guys are KICKING ASS!!! The new stuff I've heard is incredible, and I must say, it isn't the old band, but ya know what? Maybe it's not supposed to be! It's a new sound, a new line-up, and a new direction, but the same old badass rock and roll the Guns N' Roses name has always delivered. I can't wait for Democracy!!



jo | Reviewer: eddy | 9/5/2007

you are all right this song is genius and fabulous.... but guns n roses are not back... the real guns never will return... they have their time behind them... now there is "velvet revolver" and "axl rose + band" sadly called guns n roses..... but one thing you really can say...: AXL IS BACK



awesome... | Reviewer: Hans | 7/10/2007

this song is just phenomenal..i started off not to keen on it,played it a few times and it is pure brilliance,even dare i say along the lines of saying this could be the fourth installment in the set of songs that "connect".....Don't Cry,November Rain,Estranged and now...There Was A Time

peace and love ya! rock 'n' roll never dies!



About the song TWAT performed by Guns N' Roses | Reviewer: Lollard | 7/8/2007

impressive! I expect Slash will be sorry about his absence in GnR at the moment!!!
Axl is awesome!!! Expextin' him in Ukraine!!!



Vintage Axl | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/2007

I have to say I wasn't too impressed with this song initially. I felt it was one of the weaker tracks compared to Madagascar, Catcher in the Rye and Better, but after listening to it a few times I have to say it's just genius - the melody, the lyrics are nowhere short of the standard I know I've come to expect of the obscenely talented Axl Rose



HOLLY wacamoly !! | Reviewer: THE HOLLYWOOD ROSE | 6/15/2007
