"You Ain't The First" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Darren A. Reed and Matt Sorum....
I tried so hard just to get through to you
But your head's so far
From the realness of truth
Was it just a come on in the dark
Wasn't meant to last long
I think you've worn your welcome honey
I'll just see you along as I sing you this song

Time can pass slowly
Things always change
Your day's been numbered
And I've read your last page
You was just a temporary love
But honey you ain't the first
Lots of other come before you woman
Said but you been the worst
Said you been the worst

So goodbye to you girl
So long, farewell
I can't hear you cryin'
Your jivin's been hell
So look for me walkin'
Down your street at night
I'll be in with another
Deep down inside
Deep down inside

    General CommentThis girl thinks he really needs her, so she messes around and thinks he'll still want her, and he's letting her know she means nothing to him- that she's "just a temporary lover", she "ain't the first." Such an awesome song- totally sticks it to the girl. This song also shows GN'R didn't need Axl- the songs without him are some of the best.

    General CommentWhat would you say to a girl who kept feeding you with Iloveyous while
    at the same time doing another guy? What would you say to make her
    suffer, to get your revenge? Well...

    General CommentA song about cutting a chick down. She treated him like shit, so he is showing her up now.

    Izzy was a great writer for G'N'R...his solo stuff is pretty good too...not on this site though

    General Comment*lol* At the end if you listen carefully you can hear either Duff or Axl say 'to the bar!' Some one says something and then the door clicks!

    General CommentIt's pretty simple and straight forward, like a lot of girls who nag their guys and expect them to still do anything for them and stay with them.
    this song is about having the brains to tell the chik to fuck off and dont bother waiting for him to come crawling back coz he can find someone better and shes not the first girl he'soved or hated

    General CommentThis is actually the only song on the Use Your Illusion albums I don't like. I like My World more than this because it just seems like an unnecessary song.
