Guns N' Roses – You Could Be Mine lyrics

I'm a cold heartbreaker
Fit ta burn
And I'll rip your heart in two
And I'll leave you lyin on the bed

I'll be out the door
Before you wake
Nothin new ta you
Cause I think we've seen that movie too..

Cause you could be mine
But you're way out of line
With your bitch slap rappin and your cocaine tongue
You get nothin done
I said you could be mine..

(musical interlude)

Now holidays come
And then they go
Nothin new to gain
Collect another memory..
When I come home
Late at night
Don't ask me where I've been
Just count your stars I'm home again...


You could be mine
(you could be mine)
(you could be mine)
(you could be mine)
(You could be mine)

Ooooo... you've gone sketchin' too many times...
Ooooo.. why don't ya give it a rest
Whyyyy... must you find
Another reason to cry...

(guitar solo)

While you're breakin down my back
And ive been wrackin out my brains
It don't matter how we make it
Cause it always ends the same
You can push it for more mileage
But your flaps are wearing thing
And i could sleep on it til mornin
But this nightmare never ends
Don't forget to call my lawyer with ridiculous demands
And you can take the pity so far
But it's more than i can stand
Cause this couch trip's gettin older
Tell me how long has it been
Cause 5 years is forever and you haven't grown up yet...


You could be
You should be
You could be mine
(you could be mine)
(repeat / rotating with backup vocals)
