"November Rain" is a power ballad by American rock band Guns N' Roses, written by lead singer Axl Rose and released as a single in June 1992.

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darling, when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same

Nothing lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

We've been through this such a long, long time
Just trying to kill the pain, ooh yeah
But lovers always come and lovers always go
And no one's really sure who's letting go today, walking away
If we could take the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head just knowing that you were mine, all mine

So if you want to love me
Then darling, don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walking
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time on your own?
Do you need some time all alone?
Ooh, everybody needs some time on their own
Ooh, don't you know you need some time all alone?

I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you?
Oh!

Sometimes I need some time on my own
Sometimes I need some time all alone
Ooh, everybody needs some time on their own
Ooh, don't you know you need some time all alone?

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain
I know that you can love me
When there's no one left to blame

So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
Nothing lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Don't you think that you need somebody?
Don't you think that you need someone?
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Don't you think that you need somebody?
Don't you think that you need someone?
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Don't you think that you need somebody?
Don't you think that you need someone?
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Don't you think that you need somebody?
Don't you think that you need someone?
Everybody needs somebody

The phrase "November Rain" is used throughout the song symbolizing a period of depression from a flawed relationship. The imagery of a cold rainy November day is a perfect parallel to these feelings, in my opinion. The last time he utters the phrase, the context changes a bit. "Nothing lasts forever, even cold November rain." The lines leading up to it suggest that Axl believes that love can prevail in the end and whatever the problem was can be fixed. The fragments of their relationship left over from the damage can regroup and become whole again in his mind. Closing with a different reflection on the "November Rain" theme..."Nothing lasts forever, even cold November Rain." Axl ends the first act of the song with this optimistic mindset that bad times are not everlasting and they can both get through them.
