The Garden Lyrics - Guns N' Roses

Review The Song (4)



(Arkeen / James / Rose)


You know you're all alone
Your friends they aren't at home
Everybody's gone to the garden
As you look into the trees
You can look but you don't see
The flowers seem to tease you at the garden
Everybody's there, but you don't seem to care
What's it with you man, and this garden


Turned into my worst phobia,
A crazy man's utopia
If you're lost no one can show ya,
But it sure was glad to know ya
Only poor boys take a chance,
On the garden's song and dance,
Feel her flowers as they wrap around,
sponsored links
But only smart boys do without


You can find it all inside
No need to wrestle with your pride
No you ain't losin' your mind
You're just in the garden
They can lead you to yourself
Or you can throw it on the shelf
But you know you can look inside
For the garden


I wasn't really scared
Lost my virginity there,
To a gypsy with blond hair
But now no one seems to care
Like a mouse inside a maze
Wandering round for days
With a smile upon my face,
I never wanna leave this place
Only poor boys take a chance,
On the garden's song and dance,
Feel her flowers as they wrap around,
But only smart boys do without
Turned into my worst phobia,
A crazy man's utopia
If you're lost no one can show ya,
But it sure was glad to know ya
Bye bye
So long, bye bye
It's glad to know ya
Bye bye
Bye bye
Aw...so long

solo | Reviewer: HC | 5/13/13

This solo was actually created by West Arkeen if I remember correctly. Slash admitted later that it was only just before the song was recorded that he was able to play it flawless.

"you can find it all inside" i think this verse mean, that you can basically get the whole package of the song meaning Sex, Drugs, Alcohol, and Excitment from danger by stepping to the garden (the state of being high or drunk).. he also says
"No need to wrestle withpride your
No you ain't losin' your mind
You're just in the garden
They can lead you to yourself
Or you can throw it on the shelf
But you know you can look inside
For the garden" this basically mean, you can find who you are a drug addict or what ever you like if you just try it.. but if you dont like it just give it away and never try it again

wrap around what?! | Reviewer: RocketQueen | 5/8/07

"Feel her flowers as they wrap around,
But only smart boys do without"
to me this sounds like cheap unprotected sex..or drug dependence...hell knows but it still a great song GNR forever aswell

THe most underated GNR song | Reviewer: JP | 8/16/04

By far has the best guitar solo on the album, the lyrics take you to a place where you wanna be but not really sure about it.....has to be about drugs and losing touch with your friends and family, but somehow, the garden is where the truth is held.....GNR forever
