The Unforgiven II (6:36)

Cover of Reload

From Reload and 12 other releases

“The Unforgiven II” is a song performed by Metallica. It was written by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett and appears on the album ReLoad as a sequel to “The Unforgiven” (which appears on the album Metallica). Both songs have similar musical themes. They both start with the horn taken from For a Few Dollars More. The chord progression during the verses is strikingly similar to the one used in the chorus on “The Unforgiven”. Over a decade later, the song was followed by a second sequel, “The Unforgiven III”, from the album Death Magnetic.

The song has only been performed once live at the 1997 Billboard Music awards (the band played after they won the Artist of the Year award).

Lay beside me and tell me what they've done
And speak the words I wanna hear to make my demons run
The door is locked now but it's open if you're true
If you can understand the me then I can understand the you
