And now I don't know why
She wouldn't say goodbye
But then it seems that I
Had seen it in her eyes
And it might not be wise
I'd still have to try
With all the love I have inside
I can't deny

I just can't let it die
Cause her heart's just like mine
And she holds her pain inside
So if you ask me why
She wouldn't say goodbye
I know somewhere inside
There is a special light
Still shining bright
And even on the darkest night
She can't deny

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself
Within' her eyes

No matter how I try
They say it's all a lie
So what's the use of my
Confessions to a crime
Of passions that won't die
In my heart

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself
Within' her eyes

Guitar Solo

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself
Within' her eyes

And now I don't know why
She wouldn't say goodbye
It just might be that I
Had seen it in her eyes
And now it seems that I
Gave up my ghost of pride
I'll never say goodbye aaaeeeye

    I believe it's about a guy who loves this girl that he had been friends with for awhile and she left him maybe because she knew he loved her but she loved someone else so she left him and the friendship behind because the feelings weren't mutual but he don't want to let her go so he begs and pleads his emotions and wonders why she can't see how much he loves and cares for her. And he doesn't want his love for her nor the close friendship they had to die but he still believes she holds a special light for him and maybe one day she will give him another chance. I love this song the lyrics and vocal power are so incredibly beautiful and powerful and deep! It will send shivers down your spine and bring tears to your eyes. Axl Rose is the best singer! I don't believe anyone could sing this song as powerful or as beautiful as he did! Axl is the man!

    This song is amazing ! The way I see it , its about her leaving him , but he is to proud to beg , and he is telling himself she is the same way , the only way he may have a chance is by giving up his ghost of pride , and beg . She is colder than him so she will never admit that she loves him. So he knows she loves him , but he knows she will never try to fix things up so he has to stop being so proud and beg forgiveness .

    The one i love seemed to slip away as the time passed... My heart still mourns for her warm embrace, but it belongs to someone else. No matter how many other women i'm with it still is never the same...
