3. Don’t Cry

I’ll still be thinking of you
And the times we had, baby”

That is, Alex had a thing for a girl that Lzzy once dated. But things did not go well as expected, which pushed Alx to write it down.
Honestly, I believe it is the best Guns N’ Roses songs in my heart. The first time that I got to know this song was in the early of 2017. At that moment, I was in deep sadness because of poor academic performance. The song impressed me a lot due to its moving lyrics and touching tune, which, in fact, made me cry.
4. Paradise City

Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home”

What really catches my eyes of this single is its content. You know, from its description, it is easy for me to gain access to the fabulous scenery or environment.
5. Welcome to the Jungle

We got everything you want, honey we know the names
We are the people that can find whatever you may need
If you got the money honey, we got your disease”
“Welcome to the Jungle” won the Best New Artist in a Video in 1988. In an interview, Alx said the song derived from one of his experience. He went to a small town to have a visit to his long-time friend. And what he felt there motivated him to create this song.
You will totally intoxicate with its dynamic beats and then dance to music. It drives you to be in that scene, in a real jungle.
“Shed a tear cause I’m missing you
I’m still alright to smile
Girl I think about you every day now”

As the lyrics “take it slow, and things will be fine", sometimes we need to be patient. Occasionally, things will not turn out to be good results. In this regard, all you can do is to be patient and be ready for the good.
“Young at heart
Ain’ it gets so hard to wait
When no one I know
Can seem to help me now”
“Estranged” was considered as the third song in the unofficial “Del James trilogy”, following “Don’t Cry” and “November Rain”. By the way, it has drawn the attention from more than 100 M viewers on YouTube.
Man is created alone, which is an inspiration I obtain whenever I touch the “Estranged”. There is a way we have to undergo when we suffer the pain. Also, being alone serves as a good method to recover from the bad things.

I can’t use it anymore

The main lyrics in this song is “knock-knock-knocking on heaven’s door”, whose dynamic beats make you feel that you are in front of the paradise. Believe me! It can incredibly smooth and reduce your anxiety.

That’s called the blues”
