"Every Rose Has It's Thorn" is a cover by American recording artist Miley Cyrus from her third studio album Can't Be Tamed (2010). Originally a big hit in the 1980s, the song, originally sung by Glam Rock band Poison. It was never released, but is the fourth track on the album. The cover was praised by critics, some saying it was a great cover and praised Cyrus' vocal delivery, which on most of the album, was critcised. 

BackgroundEdit

Cyrus covered the song on her third studio album Can't Be Tamed. She deemed it "a classic" and one of her favorite songs. "I feel like the way the music industry is today really shelters kids and they aren't exposed to songs as honest and real as this one."

CompositionEdit

Cyrus' version takes away the Glam Rock and Country Rock elements of the song, and replaces it with a synthesized backdrop, while incorporating Soft Rock and Country elements, and is a more uptempo pace. The guitar breakdown, although, is considerably very similar to the original version 

Critical ReceptionEdit

The song was praised by critics due to Cyrus' vocals on the track.

Heather Morris of AllMusic praised the track saying, she sounds more natural and more grown-up on the songs that straddle rock and country, including the revved-up cover of Poison's “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”. Billboard said: "The lone exception is a delightfully campy robo-country cover of Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."

Despite the album getting a fair share of negative reviews, Alex Petridis of The Guardian who gave the album who barely-missed Mixed review, praised the song; the most memorable melody here is, regrettably, a cover of Poison's wretched power ballad Every Rose Has Its Thorn.

LyricsEdit

We both lie silently still
in the dead of the night
Although we both lie close together
We feel miles apart inside

Was it something I said or something I did
Did my words not come out right
Though I tried not to hurt you
Yeah, I tried
But I guess that's why they say

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn

Yeah it does

I listen to our favorite song
playing on the radio
Hear the DJ say loves a game of easy come and easy go
But I wonder does he know
Has he ever felt like this
And I know that you'd be here right now
If I could let you know somehow

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn

Though it's been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
but that scar, that scar remains

I know I could've saved a love that night
If I'd known what to say
Instead of makin' love
We both made our separate ways

and now I hear you found somebody new
and that I never meant that much to you
And to hear that tears me up inside
And to see you cuts me like a knife

Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn
