Video of the Day: Rocket Queen

Oh, yeah. Mama's been hitting the hard stuff. Musically, that is. I remember GNR back in the day. They were amazing.

What was really amazing was that my mom let me listen to their music. I actually got the Appetite for Destruction cassette tape for Christmas. Did my mother not understand what they were singing about? The album name should have given her a clue. If not, then maybe the picture on the cover? Ah, well. I know she gave me a tape of Cinderella and Poison as well. Yup, big hair bands rocked.

I see you standing
Standing on your own
It's such a lonely place for you
For you to be
If you need a shoulder
Or if you need a friend
I'll be here standing
Until the bitter end
No one needs the sorrow
No one needs the pain
I hate to see you
Walking out there
Out in the rain
So don't chastise me
Or think I, I mean you harm
Of those that take you
Leave you strung out
Much too far

Don't ever leave me
Say you'll always be there
All I ever wanted
Was for you
To know that I care
