The Unforgiven II Lyrics - Metallica



Review The Song (50)


Lay beside me, tell me what they've done
Speak the words I wanna hear, to make my demons run
The door is locked now, but it's opened if you're true
If you can understand the me, then I can understand the you

Lay beside me, under wicked sky
Through black of day, dark of night, we share this pair of lives
The door cracks open, but there's no sun shining through
Black heart scarring darker still, but there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining

[Chorus]
What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

Yeah
What I've felt, what I've known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven too?

Come lay beside me, this won't hurt I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she'll never love again
She lay beside me, but she'll be there when I'm gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes she'll be there when I'm gone
Yes she'll be there when I'm gone
Dead sure she'll be there

[Chorus]
What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?

What I've felt, what I've known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, cause I'm the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven too?

[Solo]

Lay beside me, tell me what I've done
The door is closed, so are your eyes
But now I see the sun, now I see the sun
Yes, now I see it

[Chorus]
What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you

What I've felt, what I've known
So sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there, cause I'm the one who waits
The one who waits for you


Oh, what I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, just turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you

(Background) So I dub thee Unforgiven.

Oh, what I've felt
Oh, what I've known

I take this key (never free)
And I bury it (never me) in you
Because you're unforgiven too!

Never free
Never me
Because you're unforgiven too..
Oo-Oh-Oo

What this song iz about. | Reviewer: Cyborg174 | 1/2/13

The man for the Unforgiven I has met someone who has felt the smae pain he had as a child. The lyrics may sound wrong(lay beside meeee, tell me what theyve done), but they mean he wants her to tell him what the people did to her. But then he finds out she is a terrible person and is unforgiven too, but probably doesnt realize it. Then he finally sees the "sun" and becomes forgiven again.

Great Song | Reviewer: Jim | 10/31/12

I don't necessarily like the music as much as I do One or Ride the Lightning, but you have to admit, these lyrics are quite fine.


For me, this song has always been the symbolism of a dark love story. It's two broken people who meet each other and don't know how to act.

It could just be a friendship though... I admit.

Whatever, great song.

tombstone | Reviewer: who cares? | 6/7/12

just listen to the music and stop fucking around, i dont care of what you think of what surrounds you, just fucking listen to what you wanna hear and stop screaming what your likes and dislikes were,keep it deep inside you 'till death approaches you, dont worry 'cause 65miles deep into the ground is hell and there you can scream 'till eternity...

to all metallica haters! | Reviewer: hector rivera | 5/18/12

Ok whoever said metallica sucks you are mentally retarded!!! Metallica is the shit! The best band in the world!!! Your an idiot look at the fucking facts!! Metallica has sold the most ablums out of any other rock band and they are still rocking. Metallica lyrics were done by geniuses! There is at least ONE metallics song that EVERYONE likes. They are a legend and their music has passed the test of time meaning that people still listen to even the earliest songs such as seek and destroy or whiplash. And who the fuck is megadeth!???? If I dont know who they are they must not even be good!? Andplease explain to me how is Metallica the anti Christ??? James was born with religion all around him, and he became probably the best song writer after he decided he wanted to express himself.. I LOVE METALLICA THEY ARE THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD FUCK ALL THE HATERS!!:D

Love this song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/8/12

I love this song, it is one of the few songs on load/Reload that I actually like, I'm not saying Load or Reload are bad albums, they are great, but I personally don't like them very much.

Re: All faggotz here | Reviewer: Sammi | 12/11/11

First of all, I just want to needlessly throw in that I'm a girl, so I can't be a faggot. ;D
I love how everybody bashes Metallica for every album they've put out after the Black Album. They've changed. So has Slayer, so has Megadeth. They never sold out, it's just the fact that the sound of the work they put out has changed. If you can't respect change, which everyone goes through, then you can't respect life.
On another note, there's no competition between Kirk and Dave and/or Metallica and Megadeth. They're both equally as great (though I would pick Metallica if I had a choice).
Now to what I came here for.
Some of these reviews here really upset me. They're not even about the song itself, which is wonderful in its entirety. I personally find The Unforgiven II and III better than the first. The chorus of II is amazing, it fits the mood of the song perfectly. III contains so much raw emotion inside it. I'm not saying I don't like The Unforgiven, but after listening to II and III, I feel it could use a little something extra.

All the hate | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/29/11

Seriously, Hateing Metallica? Hateing Megadeth? what the hell guys they both are great bands, its ok if you dont like certain albums of theirs and ect but some of the shit you guys are saying is stupid like you slayer rulez- "Listen all metallica was awesome at 80's after reload , load sucking albums i lost hope !
Ya i like Unforgiven 1 & 2 like hell but other than that they suck ( Excluding master of puppets and starting albums ) !
And Kirk is no match to Dave..
Dave rulez..
And Faggots Megadeth also got some awesome lyrics like A tout le monde , Skin O my teeth and many more !
So stfu !
Slayer rulez..
They are awesome like hell.."

Seriously dude, get a life, you sounds like a 12 year old internet troll, grow up man and secondly ALL OF METALLIAC'S ALBUMS WERE GREAT. my personalal favourite being of course ...And Justice For All and Ride The Lighting and i also like Megadeth, so shove your ignorant responses and hate up your arses.

Metadeth | Reviewer: metalmat840 | 11/22/11

You guys shouldn't be complaining about metallica vs megadeth, they're both a kickass band and you know it, at the begining I started listening to metallica, then I moved to megadeth then said "megadeth is better" then I listened to metallica and said" shit metallica is better" then again to megadeth and back to metallica over and over, But personally I love more megadeth, cuz Dave stills writing whatever he feels, such things doesn't happen to metallica not even nothing else matters or other songs like "a tout le monde" if we are talking about feelings even "coming home" those megadeth songs touch your soul new ones like "the hardest part of letting go", I know metallica will comeback someday with songs like "one" "unforgiven I & II" or "nothing else matters" and their comeback will be Really mindblowing.

All faggots here | Reviewer: Slayer rulez | 9/28/11

RE:Stop Being Condescending | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/16/10

I entirely agree with you, but what you have to realize is that MOST Metallica fans grew up in LA/San Francisco during the 80's (The dawn of thrash metal and its birth place) and Metallica was the pioneer of Thrash Metal, they were the ones that brought their music to America with the release of the music video for "One" on MTV. People want to see this kind of thing for sure, just not from Metallica.

Metalideath | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/16/10

Metallica is the greatest BAND on the face of the planet for three reasons

1)The only band to ever have 5 STRAIGHT albums hit the number one spot on the top 100 chart

2)They're mastery of varying genres is the most impressive of any band known anywhere (basically meaning EVERYONE likes AT LEAST one of their songs)

3)James Hetfield's almost Shakespearean ability to write lyrics that go in depth and that are completely meaningful to the situation

Megadeth is the greatest METAL band on the face of the planet for 2 reasons

1)They did not stray away from their genre as Metallica did

2)Dave Mustaine's unmatched speed metal (what Thrash metal was founded upon) abilities.

I personally like Metallica better simply due to Megadeth's bland and tasteless lyrics... I wonder what "Angry Again" could be about?

Stop Being Condescending | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/8/10

The guy who says to stop listening to Load and ReLoad should really stop being a narrow-minded fuckwit. I don't just like metal, I like its derivatory genres as well and that would lead me to rock/ blues rock etc. which i think metallica did an execellent job with on Load and ReLoad. Just because it's different doesn't mean its bad...

Listen to Some Metal | Reviewer: MEGATHRAXSLAYTALLICA | 8/28/10

This is a response to 1)those dickheads who hate Metallica,2)Those gay Metallica fans who hate Megadeth,and 3)to those retards who don't know fuck about the real Metallica.

1)Wow what the fuck?Alice cooper heavy metal?Ozzy started metal and you call him a disciple of Mustaine?Do yourself a favor and go fuck yourself.

2)Ok, here's the answer to the Metallideth question.Metallica was a band, they had 5 albums, and then they became shitallica.Megadeth also turned towards rock, but not as much as Mama Said or Hero of the day(Keep in mind, its Metallica, not Rocktallica).Mustaine was a total retard when they kicked him out, but now he's sober.Metallica had the best early work, Megadeth had good stuff overall.Now their war is over and they are good friends.Death Magnetic was a relief, because Metallica is now back on track,no more shitallica.Mustaine is a Guitar God, better than Kirk,and both bands are awesome.

3)I prefer Metallica because their early work fucks everything.And please stop wanking off at load or reload, go listen to some justice or master of puppets.

Peace

metallica within my life !! | Reviewer: theoR*Mcx | 3/24/10

metallica is one of the bands that created this passion inside of me for ROCK music,with all the must meaningful lyrics that they wrote over the years made beleave in the band,i mean they said what i always wanted to say above the stage they gave me justis!!,I think METALLICA is the Godfather of thrash metal-heavy metal!!!

What I've felt,what I've known. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/8/10

I feel like Unforgiven and Unforgiven II are my life in song. Lyrics like "But threre's no sun shining through" to me are like when I doubted my girlfriend and always thought she was lying to me. And "But now I see the sun" is when me and her stopped argueing. And in Unforgiven there's "You label me, I'll label you" are my present feelings towards those who don't understand me (which are most of the people I know).
