"Die for You" as written by James Douglas Vallance, Alice Cooper, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars....
A hundred numbers on my wall
Some with namesI sometimes call
I dropa coin and watch it fall
Tryin' to get connected to you

A thousand hours all alone
My softest pillow turns hard as stone
This is the longest night on my own

Sometimes I shake my head
And laugh to myself
I'd like start again with somebody Ellis
I'm like a broken toy forgotten on the self

Baby, I could have been someone
I could have been something
It would have been nothing to die for you
Baby, you're going to need me
You'd better believe me
It would have been easy to die for you

A milloin memories flood my brain
Drown my sorrow
Kill my pain
Whets my thirst for you again
Just another night to get through

All my neighbors scream for quite at my door
Shattered glass and torn up photos on
Thrown on the floor
Well, I couldn't stand to see your pictures
Anymore

Baby, I could have been someone
I could have been something
It would have been nothing to die for you
Baby, you're going to need me
You'd better believe me
It would have been easy to die for you

These cuts are deep but you plead
Innocent
Are you hell or are you heaven-sent
You're much too cold to know how much
You ment to me, Yeah

A billion tear drops fallen from my eyes
but it's just a joke now
And
I'm laughing at your lies

You made me hard as rock and now
I realize

Baby, I could have been someone
I could have been something
It would have been nothing to die for you
Baby, you're going to need me
You'd better believe me
It would have been easy to die for you

    General Commentwoah no comments?

    this song brings back a lot of painful memories, but rather than breakup wich i think its about....
    i find it more about losing [ie death] a loved one..... most likely suicide.... from you dont know how much you ment to me.... if they were alive... you could tell them..... a joke i think is about moving on... to be strong....

    die for you? you died for me.... i feel responsible.... why couldnt it of been me?

    li could of been there for you, belive me, i would of been somthing, i could of been someone to you... it would of ment nothing to die for you.....

    General CommentUnidanslesang- I agree with you for the most part. Another possibility is that it is someone still alive, who just didn't feel the same way about you. You know the type- girls who go out with guys for the hell of it, or a slut. While he does use past tense (meant), he also uses a lot of present tense ("You're going to need me", "You're much too cold..")

    Of course, the "Your much too cold" line could be Alice Cooper humour for a dead person, but in asong like this, I doubt it.

    I myself have experiance of what I just said, I guess people interpret songs their own way according to their own pasts.

    General CommentI love this song, and especially the fact that Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars helped to write the song. This song got me through a recent break up from a girl that didn't really love me. Its just a rocker, and it keeps the pace up through out the entire song.
