Locomotive
Guns N' Roses Lyrics


Gonna find a way to cure this loneliness
Yeah I'll find a way to cure the pain
If I said that you're my friend
And our love would never end
How long before I had your trust again
I opened up the doors when it was cold outside
Hopin' that you'd find your own way in
But how can I protect you
Or try not to neglect you
When you won't take the love I have to give
I bought me an illusion
An I put it on the wall
I let it fill my head with dreams
And I had to have them all
But oh the taste is never so sweet
As what you'd believe it is -
Well I guess it never is
It's these prejudiced illusions
That pump the blood
To the heart of the biz

You know I never thought
That it could take so long
You know I never knew how to be strong
Yeah, I let you shape me
But it feels as though you raped me
'Cause you climbed inside my world
And in my songs
So now I've closed the door
To keep the cold outside
Seems somehow I've found the will to live
But how can I forget you
Or try not to reject you
When we both know it takes time to forgive

Sweetness is a virtue
And you lost your virtue long ago
You know I'd like to hurt you
But my conscience always tells me no
You could sell your body on the street
To anyone whom you might meet
Who'd love to try and get inside
And bust your innocence open wide

'Cause my baby's got a locomotive
My baby's gone off the track
My baby's got a locomotive
Got ta peel the bitch off my back
I know it looks like I'm insane
Take a closer look I'm not to blame
No

Gonna have some fun with my frustrations
Gonna watch the big screen in my head
I'd rather take a detour
'cause this road ain't gettin' clearer
Your train of thought has cut me off again
Better tame that boy 'cause he's a wild one
Better tame that boy for he's a man
Sweetheart don't make me laugh
You's gettin' too big for your pants
And I's think maybe you should
Cut out while you can
You can use your illusion -
Let it take you where it may
We live and learn
And then sometimes it's best to walk away
Me I'm just here hangin' on
It's my only place to stay at least
For now anyway
I've worked too hard for my illusions
Just to throw them all away

I'm taking time quiet consolation
In passing by this love that's passed away
I know it's never easy
So why should you believe me
When I've always got so many things to say
Calling off the dogs a simple choice is made
'Cause playful hearts
Can sometimes be enraged
You know I tried to wake you
I mean how long could it take you
To open up your eyes and turn the page

Kindness is a treasure
And it's one towards me you've seldom shown
So I'd say it for a good measure
To all the ones like you I've known
Ya know I'd like to shave your head
And all my friends could paint it red
'Cause love to me's a two way street
An all I really want is peace

But my baby's got a locomotive
My baby's gone off the track
My baby's got a locomotive
Got ta peel the bitch off my back
I know it looks like I'm insane
Take a closer look I'm not to blame
No

Affection is a blessing
Can you find it in your sordid heart
I tried to keep this thing ta-gether
But the tremor tore my pad apart
Yeah I know it's hard to face
When all we've worked for's gone to waste
But you're such a stupid woman
And I'm such a stupid man
But love like time's got its own plans

'Cause my baby's got a locomotive
My baby's gone off the track
My baby's got a locomotive
Got ta peel the bitch off my back
I know it looks like I'm insane
Take a closer look I'm not to blame
Yeah
If love is blind I guess I'll buy myself a cane

Love's so strange

Lyrics

Gonna find a way to 
Cure this loneliness
Yeah, 
I'll find a way to cure the pain
If I said that you're my friend 
And our love would never end
How long before 
I had your trust again?
I opened up the doors 
When it was cold outside
Hoping that you'd 
Find your own way in
But how can I protect you, 
Or try not to neglect you
When you won't take 
The love I have to give?

I bought me an illusion and 
I put it on the wall
I let it fill my head with dreams 
And I had to have them all
But, 
Oh, 
The taste is never so sweet 
As what you'd believe it is
Well I guess it never is, 
It's these prejudiced illusions
That pump the blood 
To the heart of the biz

[Solo 1]

You know, 
I never thought that 
It could take so long
You know 
I never knew how 
To be strong
Yeah, 
I let you shape me, 
But 
I feel as though you raped me
Cause you climbed inside 
My world and in my songs
So now 
I've closed the door 
To keep the cold outside
Seems, 
Somehow, 
I've found the will to live
But how can I forget you, 
Or try not to reject you
When we both know 
It takes time to forgive? 
Yeah, 
Yeah

Sweetness is a virtue and 
You lost your virtue long ago
You know 
I'd like to hurt you 
But my conscience 
Always tells me 
"No"
You could sell your body 
On the street to anyone 
Whom you might meet
Who'd love to try and 
Get inside and bust your 
Innocence open wide

Cause my baby's 
Got a locomotive, 
My baby's gone 
Off the track
My baby's 
Got a locomotive, 
Got to peel the bitch 
Off my back
I know it looks like 
I'm insane
Take a closer look, 
I'm not to blame, 
No

[Guitar Solo 2]

Gonna have some fun 
With my frustration
Gonna watch the big 
Screen in my head
I'd rather take a detour 
Cause this road 
Ain't getting clearer
Your train of thought has 
Cut me off again
"Better tame that boy, 
Cause he's a wild one
Better tame that boy
Fore he's a man"
Sweetheart, 
Don't make me laugh, 
You's getting too big 
For your pants
And I think maybe 
You should cut out, 
While you can
Oh

You can use your illusion, 
Let it take you 
Where it may
We live and learn,
And then, 
Sometimes, 
It's best to walk away
Me, 
I'm just here hanging on, 
It's my only place to stay
At least for now, 
Anyway
I've worked too hard 
For my illusions just to 
Throw them all away

[Guitar Solo 3]

I'm taking time 
For quiet consolation
In passing by this love 
That's passed away
I know it's never easy, 
So 
Why should you believe me
When 
I've always got so many 
Things to say?
Calling off the dogs, 
A simple choice is made
Cause playful hearts can 
Sometimes be enraged
You know 
I tried to wake you, 
I mean how long 
Could it take you
To open up your eyes 
And turn the page?

Kindness is a treasure 
And it's one, 
Towards me, 
You've seldom shown
So, 
I'll say it, 
For good measure, 
To all the ones like you, 
I've known;
Ya know 
I'd like to shave your head 
And all my friends 
Could paint it red
Cause love to me is 
A two-way street, 
And all I really want is peace

But 
My baby's got a locomotive, 
My baby's gone 
Off the track
My baby got a locomotive, 
Got to peel the bitch 
Off my back
I know it looks like 
I'm insane
Take a closer look, 
I'm not to blame, 
No

[Guitar Solo 4]

Affection is a blessing, 
Can you find it 
In your sordid heart?
I tried to keep this thing together 
But 
The tremor tore my pad apart
Yeah, 
I know, 
It's hard to face when 
All we've worked 
For gone to waste
But 
You're such a stupid woman and 
I'm such a stupid man
But love, 
Like times got its own plans

But 
My baby's 
Got a locomotive, 
My baby's gone 
Off the track
My baby 
Got a locomotive, 
Got to peel the bitch 
Off my back
I know it looks like 
I'm insane
Take a closer look, 
I'm not to blame, 
No
Yeah, 
If love is blind, 
I guess 
I'll buy myself a cane

[Breakdown Solo 4]

Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange
Love's so strange

This is one of the greatest songs ever written. Underrated and underappreciated.

This would have been a groundbreaking song if the Beatles had written it.
