Guns N' Roses – You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory lyrics

It doesn't pay to try,
All the smart boys know why,
It doesn't mean, I didn't try,
I just never know, why.

It's isn't 'cause I'm all alone
Oh, baby, you're not home.
And when I'm home
Big deal, I'm still alone.

It's so restless, I am,
Beat my head against a pole
Try to knock some sense, down 'side my bones.
And even though it don't show,
Those guys are so old.
Can't put your arms around a memory,
Can't put your arms around a memory,
Can't put your arms around a memory.
Don't try
Don't try

You're just a basket case.
And you got no name.
Could you live with me?
Go on and say.
And even though it don't show
Those guys are so old.
Can't put your arms around a memory,

Can't put your arms around a memory.
Can't put your arms around a memory.
Don't try
Don't try

Spoken: 'Johnny you're me
Yeah, you're memory
I wanna put my arms around your memory
I can't try.. I can't try, don't try. '
