Oft Remembered Song – November Rain

November hath come and I was itching to put up this.  Touted by fans as the all time greatest song of G ‘N’R , “November Rain”. As rock music goes, this is an unusually long song with (in my personal opinion) some of the most beautiful and meaningful lyrics of all times. It is said to be a “rock ballad”, goes on for about 9 minutes with a 2 minute solo guitar piece at the end by Slash. The video for this song has been known for its stunning cinematography and has won the MTV Video Music Award.

There is some interesting background info on the song. The band refer it to be a triology of sorts along with their other songs Don’t Cry and Estranged.

Following are the lyrics

November Rain

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
‘Cause 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
An no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today
Walking away
If we could take the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin’ that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin’ don’t refrain
Or I’ll just end up walkin’
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time…on your own
Do you need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time…on their own
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
Everybody needs some time…on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain, ohhh yeahhh
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
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
Even cold November rain

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