Slash – Gotten lyrics

So nice to see your face again
Tell me how long has it been
Since you've been here (since you've been here)?
You look so different than before
But still the person I adore
Frozen with fear

I'm out of love but I'll take it from the past
All out of words 'cause I'm sure it'll never last

And I've been saving
These last words for
One last miracle
But now I'm not sure
And I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me
Like I never been gotten before

Maybe it's the bitter wind
A chill from the Pacific rim
That brought you this way (that brought you my way)
Do not make me think of him
The way he touched your fragile skin
That haunts me everyday

I'm out of love but I can't forget the past
I'm out of words but I'm sure it'll never last

And I've been saving
These last words for
One last miracle
But now I'm not sure
And I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me
Like I never been gotten before
Like I never been gotten before

So nice to see your face again
But tell me will this ever end?
Don't disappear

And I've been saving
These last words for
One last miracle
But now I'm not sure
I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me
Like I never been gotten before
Like I never been gotten before

    I think the first verse is about a man who meets again with his past girlfriend, she broke up with him, and he's not over her, and when he sees her now he realizes nothing has changed, but he still has doubt about her as he is afraid history will repeat itself ("it'll never last"). In the second verse they're back together (as she was "brought his way") but he just can't seem to put his faith in it, a consequence of what happened before (he can't forget the past). It may be she cheated on him or moved on to someone else and he just wasn't ready to deal with that. Then in the mini-verse he says he has doubts that she is still with him, but he wishes he's wrong. So it's a song that presents a broken-hearted manwho was hurt by this women before and now he fears it'll happen again.

    This song shows that there is someone out there that gets all of us. Someone out there that will understand. Sure you've thought about it, and hoped about it. "so nice to see your face again, but tell me this will never end. Don't dissapear" you've heard someone is out there for you and you've 'seen them before' in your thoughts and hopes. But when this person actually arrives in your life you don't wanna give them up. You want to hold them forever, let them understand you forever. You want to be understood, gotten.

    When someone loves someone else so deeply and the other person is in love or was in love but now a prisoner of that love and abuse! To love someone one so badly and they can't hear you telling them that you love them because of the hell they are in. Yet they are the soul mate you need. The one who gets you! Meaning it clicks! People sometimes can't escape from the walls they are in. And sometimes people can't reach you past those walls. Pain. Hurt. All because they wanted love.

    I agree with some points of saulhudson90 but not all of it. Its about 2 people that were together before. Girl left, now with another man, but she is suffering. From the lines.
    Frozen with fear - girl is scared in the relationship.
    All out of love but I take it from the past - man is no longer in love but for the sake of their relationship before, he will console her.
    All out of words cause I'm sure it'll never last - literal meaning, he needs to take action.
    I can't save you if you don't let me - girl doesn't want him to be involved with her problems.
    You just get me like I've never been gotten before - this is the most striking line of the song, where the girl really knows what the man wants to help her despite of their separation.

    This song is entirely a bout a girl whom the person was deeply in love with. No doubt that they no longer have this inner emotional love relationship that connects these two people.
    *(First verse)*
    He introduces the girl he is singing about. They have not met for a very long time. Something has happened, either she has moved on with another guy or she does not want anything with him anymore.
    *(I've been saving these last words for one last miracle
    But now I'm not sure)*.
    He's confused here, left hanging, speechless, and not knowing what to do with the current situation. On the other side, she has her own life and she has moved on.
    *(You just get me like I've never been gotten before)*.
    This part of the song according to my view is about him feeling so special when he was close and together with her. But he's singing this out of deep dissapointment and heartbreak of not having her anymore.
