If the World (4:54)

Cover of Chinese Democracy

From Chinese Democracy

Written by: “If The World” was written by Axl Rose and Chris Pitman.
Written in: “If The World” was written in or before 2004.

Additional information: A small piece of the song was used during the outro of the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “Body Of Lies”.

Chris Pitman: I saw last week, and it was a cool film. It was very dark. It was about a tough time in America, plus it’s hard to watch movies about Iraq. I don’t know if it was a little bit wrong but it was a very cool movie. That track was particularly good to work on - it was a track that was recorded quickly. We did it very quickly and it felt right to put it on that movie.

If the world would end today
Then all the dreams we had would all just drift away
You know there's nothing more to say
If the world would end and our love slipped away

    You're all whiny bitches. This CD is better than a greatest hit CD of the other kicked out losers (combined) have ever created. Izzy's shit sucks balls, Duff's music is lame as hell and Velvet Revolver is probably the worst band ever. Bucket head and Thall are so much better than Slash, I can't believe anyone would have an opinion otherwise. If anyone ever saw the original band, the live show was usually a butcherd guitar lick festival. Slash used to spend days in the recording studio attempting to lay down the licks on the recordings. He ain't no 1 take Zakk.

    This song is stellar. It's basically Axl doing a James Bond theme

    I think Ax(e)l's aim was probably to shed listeners such as yourself... a bit too advanced for your ears eh?

    If anything gets played from Chinese Democracy I would appreciate Last.fm not defaming previous great pictures with these songs attached to the once great band.

    Something to really think about or do you want to? Do you feel life was better yesterday? What will it be in the future?
