I’m that chick called a Hollywood rose
I’m the girl with the loaded guns
I’m the girl that always knows
With climbing a aint never done

Im the girl with the barbed wire heart band
But the soul of a pure white dove
I’m the girl that lives in dreamland
And honey you need more than love

Ya gotta have a steel ambition
Ya gotta fight life tooth and nail
Ho one cares if your not in fighting condition
You gotta stick to the wheel and use your sails

Ya gotta know how to sprint before you crawl
You gotta stand up and never back down
Ya gotta know before you achieve it all
Ya gotta spin this world around

Ya gotta brush off blood ,sweat and tears
Ya gotta plant those heels in the dirt
Ya gotta face your darkest fears
No one cares if your sad and hurt

Ya gotta have you pistol out of your holster
You gotta fight like that Hollywood rose
Your gonna rise life’s roller coaster
You gonna fight for places for your dreams to go

Promise me youll dance to your own tune
And always run safely on a reckless road
Keep that head up , a break is commin soon
Remember , stand strong under that heavy load

I live in the City of Angels
Its were I grew my steel hard nerves
Its were I’ve fought all my battles
And through being a Hollywood rose
I got what I deserved

This poem was inspired by Axl Roses's early band Hollywood Rose . After reading what he and Guns N Roses went through to get famous , I decided to write this .
