Sweet Child O' Mine Lyrics - Guns N' Roses


Sweet Child O' Mine, written and composed by the band Guns N' Roses, was released in August of 1988 as the third single from their debut album Appetite for Destruction. The song is a power ballad that tells the story of a man's love and appreciation for a young woman. It has since become one of the band's most popular and recognizable songs. The song was written by lead guitarist Slash, who was inspired by his then-girlfriend Erin Everly. The lyrics were penned by Axl Rose, who later wrote that the song was about his relationship with Everly. The song features a classic guitar riff and an extended solo from Slash and was the first Guns N' Roses single to break into the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number one on the chart. It has since become an enduring rock anthem and has been covered by numerous artists.


{Verse No. 1}
She's got a smile that it seems, to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky (Sky)
Now and then, when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long, I'd probably break down and cry


The first verse lyric paints a picture of a person whose smile elicits a feeling of nostalgia, of childhood memories that have remained as fresh as the bright blue sky, even as time passes. The narrator of the song is so moved by the person's smile that he fears that if he stares too long, he will be overwhelmed with emotion and break down and cry. This is a powerful reminder of the way that a simple gesture, like a smile, can evoke strong memories and emotions.


{Verse No. 2}
She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm, safe place
Where as a child, I'd hide
And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by


The second verse lyric from the song "She's Got Eyes of the Bluest Skies" is a tribute to someone special in the singer's life. The bluest skies in the eyes of the person in the song represent the hope, optimism, and peace that the singer finds in her. The reference to rain symbolizes the singer's understanding that life is not always perfect, and that sometimes sadness and pain will come, but that this person has the strength to weather any storm. The singer's reference to her hair as a warm, safe place is a reminder that this individual is a source of comfort and security. The singer is expressing gratitude for being able to have someone in their life that they can turn to in times of need.
