Better Lyrics Chinese Democracy Guns N Roses

Is Axl Rose doing all he can do be a better man? Who knows but here's the lyrics to the GNR song Better which is supposedly going to be on the Chinese Democracy album.

Better, Lyrics by Axl Rose from Chinese Democracy


No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

The hardest part 
This troubled heart 
Has ever yet been through now

Was heal the scars 
That got their start 
Inside someone like you now

For had I known 
Or I'd been shown 
Back when how long it'd take me

To break the charms 
That brought me harm
And all but would erase me

I never would 
Or thought I could
No matter what you'd pay me

Replay the part
You stole my heart
I should have known you're crazy

If all I knew 
Was that with you
I'd want someone to save me

It'd be enough
But just my luck
I fell in love and maybe

All that I wanted was...

Now I know you better
You know I know better
Now I know you better

So bittersweet
This tragedy 
Won't ask for absolution

This melody 
Inside of me 
Still searches for solution

A twist of fate 
A change of heart 
Cures my infatuation

A broken heart 
Provides the spark 
For my determination

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, 
better

All that I wanted was...

Now I know you better
You know I know better
Now I know you better

I never wanted you to be so full of anger
I never wanted you to be somebody else
I never wanted you to be someone afraid to know themselves
I only wanted you to see things for yourself

All that I wanted was...

Now I know you better
Now we all know better

All that I wanted was...

If I were you 
I'd manage to 
Avoid the invitation

Of promised love 
That can't keep up 
With your adoration

Just use your head 
And in the end 
You'll find your inspiration

To choose your steps 
And won't regret 
This kind of aggravation

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, better

No one ever told me when 
I was alone
They just thought I'd know better, better

Here's a live version of Better from when Robyn Finck was touring with GNR.
