L.A. Guns - Why Ain't I Bleeding Lyrics




Sometimes I think it's all been a dream
The people I've met places I've seen
Lovers who've sailed through my arms and my bed
And footprints of angels where devils won't tread

And it really makes me smile when I turn back the years
And cherish the laughter, remember the tears
The man I am now is not the man I was then
As time goes by I'll tell you my friend

That I'm drunk right now and I need a cigarette
I wish I know some way to forget
If I'm bound for hell 'cause of the shape I'm in
I don't have regrets, I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding?
'Cause I feel so much pain
Why ain't I bleeding?
Some things never change

Hard times and many a tear
I needed some shelter, needed my bed
Rats in the cellar screams in my head
I look in the mirror, I look like I'm dead

I was a king of the road, rhythm and blues
Starry-eyed losers drawn in tattoo's
And the man I am now is not the man I was then
As time goes by, I tell you my friend

That I'm drunk right now and I need a cigarette
I wish I know some way to forget
But if I'm bound for hell 'cause of the shape I'm in
I don't have regrets and I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding?
'Cause I feel so much pain
Why ain't I bleeding?
Some things never change

Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?

And I'm drunk right now and I need a cigarette
I wish I know some way to forget
But if I'm bound for hell 'cause of the shape I'm in
I don't have regrets, I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding?
'Cause I feel so much pain
Why ain't I bleeding?
Some things never change

Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?

  9. Orpha Noctilusca

    I am not trying to say poor me. I just think a lot of people can relate.

  10. Orpha Noctilusca

    This song means so much to me. My daddy left when I was 2. His favorite song was King of the Road. My mom was abusive to me. I grew up always punishing myself for the fact they didn't want me.
    I have tattoos but the one in my mind my father left of his name that I carry hurts the worst.
    Does anybody know who wrote this song, and do you have a cigarette?

    Gaetano

    Orpha Noctilusca I’m sorry my friend, that’s fucking awful.

    Jesse Joyce

    Hang in there kiddo.. we all carry scars . Torn and tattooed. ..

    KATHY OROCK

    A lot of us grew up in abusive broken homes, I pray for you because I know your pain. I hope you have come to terms with it and know it was not your fault. Sending you a big hug, Merry Christmas.

  11. Misaki Akuma

    one of my fav <3

  12. Lynda Cadieux

    I love this song so much 

  13. Andy Coulter

    Great tune! I forgot about this one until it randomly popped into my head the other day. I wish they'd get the classic lineup back to form ONE band...

  14. StreetRollinCheetah

    My older brother has had all the LA guns albums for a while and recently handed Vicious Circle to me. Great Album. Great Tune!

  15. Billy Kay

    One of my favorites, Vicious Circle is great!

  16. roman reyna

    you suck, since you have bad taste in music obviously. Rap sucks. metal has been around much longer & Rock & Roll is here to stay! & why you lookin up L.A Guns anyway?

  17. roman reyna

    the music industry is really one of intense betrayal, especially since L.A. guns were not as big as guns & roses. G&R sucks! L.A Guns is still around!

  18. Aaron Miller

    probably because metal sucks.

  19. Pater Desolate

    Just want to say Thank you.... so.... THANK YOU!
