There Was a Time Lyrics
Writin' on the wall
It was a bargain for the summer
And I thought I had it all
I was the one who gave you everything
The one who took the fall
You were the one who would do anything
The one who can't recall

Certain parts of the song are about his past bandmates and other parts are about his past relationship with Stephanie Seymour. I think that the song is Axl's reflection of the 1990-93 era.

Interesting interpritation there laradioken and quite possibly very close to the truth and a view i share based on the lyrics of democracy's best song imo
The song is about a relationship that’s gone bad with his former band mate Slash.
Nobody’s listened to Axl and that the others have had their say. He’s blaming his band mates for the fallout rather than taking responsibility.
The lyrics go as “I was the one who gave you everything, the one who took the fall
You were the one who would do anything, the one who can't recall”
Axl also references his past with the original lineup and how neither can talk with the other and that he’s the one who’s been wronged.
