all Chris Cornell lyrics



Can't Change Me
She can do anything at all
Have anything she pleases
The power to change what she thinks is wrong
So what could she want with me?

But wait just one minute here
I can see that she's trying to read me
Suddenly I know

She's going to change the world
But she can't change me
No she can't change me

She has the daylight at her command
She gives the night it's dreams
She can uncover your darkest fear
And make you forget you feel it

But wait just one minute more
I can see that she's trying to free me
Suddenly I know

She's going to change the world
But she can't change me

Suddenly I can see everything that's wrong with me
But what can I do?
I'm the only thing I really have at all

But wait just one minute here
I can see that she's trying to need me
Suddenly I know

She's going to change the world
But she can't change me
No she can't change meback to top
Flutter Girl
And drinking dust
With eyes of rust
Tonight my tears might stain your wings
So flutter home
'cause you're better off alone than with me
So hide your face
And tie your lace
And butterflies across your cheek
Forget how soon
You'll become a fool for words when I speak

Flutter girl
You don't want to know what I've lived
You don't want to take what I give
And I give nothing for free

You don't want to know what I've lived
You don't want to take what I give
And I give nothing for free

My hands are rough
My fingers cold
Your heart's so young and so naive
To ever feel
For a moment that I might let you believe...

I'll melt your smile
I'll tear your wings
I'll color everything you see
So flutter home
'cause you're better off alone than with me

Flutter girl
You don't want to know what I've lived
You don't want to take what I give
'cause I give nothing for free

And you don't want to know what I've lived
You don't want to take what I give
'cause I give nothing for free

(long solo...)

Flutter girl
You don't want to know what I've lived
You don't want to take what I give
And I give nothing for free

You don't want to know what I've lived

Preaching the End of the World
Hello, I know there's someone out there
Who can understand
And who's feeling the same way as me
I'm twenty-four and I've got everything to live for
But I know now that it wasn't meant to be
'cause all has been lost and all has been won
And there's nothing left for us to save
But now I know that I don't want to be alone today
So if you find that you've been feeling just the same

Call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'cause you can't hide
So call and I'll get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world

I've got a photograph, I'll send it off today
And you will see that I am perfectly sane
Not for a lifetime or forever and a day
'cause we know now that just won't be the case
There will be no commitment and no confessions
And no little secrets to keep
No little children or houses with roses
Just the end of the world and me
'cause all has been gone and all has been done
And there's nothing left for us to say
But we could be together as they blow it all away
And we can share in every moment as it breaks

Call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'cause you can't hide
So call and I'll get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the worldback to top
Follow My Way
Little one don't be a fool
I'm a wreck when I look mighty
In euphoria I'm bruised
In confusion next I'm lightning
In complacence I am small
Through oblivion I charge

So follow my way
When I'm not leading anyone
Open and frayed
When you can see that I'm unsure
Out on my way
I'm only pure when I get lost
And you're only needing
When you're finding that I'm not

You're just looking for a boy
Bathed in infrared and sunlight
I'm all polish and reward
When I'm confident I'm hopeless
Just like everybody else
Right before they fall apart

So follow my way
When I am falling from your heart
When I'm in pain
Fever and sweet relief in one
Out on my way
Though I'm not worthy of your trust
Follow me down into a swan dive
All eyes closed tightly

Lowly, slowly now I know I like
Where you go when you're gone
Warm you hands inside my veins
I might be contagious
Through oblivion I charge

Follow my way
When I'm useless to your cause
When I derail
Calm in the patience of remorse
Out on my way
Out on my empty open nervesback to top
When I'm Down
What say you now, the door is opening
On your vigil and I'm in my usual way
I save my breath, knowing what you're
Wanting me to say, I only love you when I'm down
You say that midnight opens its arms to me
Leaving you alone, and then I fly so far away
Until the light blurs my vision and I have nowhere to roam
I only love you when I'm down
And I only love you when I'm down
And I'm only near you when I'm gone
But one thing for you to keep in mind you know
I'm down all the time
Well I know you're reaching out and you need to feel my hand
You want to be understood, Yeah well I understand
I know you hold precious little hope for me
And in your happiness, I'm always drowning in my grief
And I only love you when Im down
And i'm only near you when I'm gone
But one thing for you to keep in mind you know
I'm down all the time
All the time, all the time, all the timeback to top
Mission
Pulled through you, and drowning in your swirl
Circling, unfolding in your will
I'm going to glide on the winds of your breathing
And alight on your guarded heart
I'm gonna tear all your temples down
I'm on a mission now

Smoldering down inside your mood
Slithering and fanning in your eyes
I'm going to dive through your crying
And sleep in your hair
Rise from your ashes and kneel in you prayers
Tear all your temples down
I'm on a mission now

And I have nothing
But then the have is not as good as the want
I'm gonna glide on the winds of your breathing
Writhe in your calm and provide your release
Weave into your wanting and needing
And reside in the heart of your strongest beliefs
I'm gonna tear all your temples down
I'm on a mission now

And I have nothing
But then the have is not as good as the wantback to top
Wave Goodbye
Words get tangled on your tongue
And you stumble on your feet
When you miss somebody
And everywhere you think you see them
Walking down the street
When you miss somebody
When you miss somebody
You tell yourself a hundred thousand times
Nobody ever lives forever
So you give it one more try
To wave goodbye, wave goodbye

Every hurtful thing you ever said
Is ringing in your ear
When you miss somebody
And everything of beauty that you see
Only brings a tear
When you miss somebody
When you miss somebody
You tell yourself everything will be alright
Try to stand up strong and brave
When all you want to do is lay down and die

How long I've waited for an answer or a sign
Lonely and weary from
The troubled task of trying
To wave goodbye

So now you start to recognize
That every single path you see
Leads to a tear in your eye
So wave goodbye, wave goodbyeback to top
Moonchild
Open your arms to the lonely shine
Lonesome as gold in a poor man's smile
See how the moon is full
Follow the push and pull
Follow the ebb and flow in the breathing tide

Come on moonchild, you're so far away tonight
The door is falling open and we're flying wild

Cat on the road, down in the living night
See how the black dog grins
In the diamond light
We're dreaming and we're real
We're broken and we're healed
Give in to what you feel over what you see

Come on moonchild, you're so far away tonight
The door is falling open and we're flying wild
Come on moon flower
You're so far away from now
You could bloom forever in the hour

And when if is only yes and no
And now becomes too soon
I know you'll be alright if you only
Come away to the moon
In the blue shine

Come on moonchild, you're so far away tonight
The door is falling open and we're flying wild
Come on moon flower
You're so far away from now
You could bloom forever in the hourback to top
Sweet Euphoria
Sweet euphoria, mine is the heart you own
You lost the grace of the hands that harmed you
In the daze of a thousand yawns
Lost my love, as it is I'm truly gone
In you morning I will sleep
Fire on an open palm
Death for jesus and plastic armies
Wouldn't bring me back again
Sweet as ether eyes I'm blind to them

Gone are your dandelions, falling like mine
Falling on land-mine pillows
Tired angels save my love for the lasting one

Sweet euphoria, mine is the heart you stole
Touched and broken are the things you love
Using stars to light your candles
Warms my face, but I can't remember yours
Gone are you dandelions, falling like mine
Falling like daydream mangos
Diving swallows
Save my love for the lasting oneback to top
Disappearing One
What have you done, my little spark?
Cursing my name 'cause again I put you out
Falling apart, you tell yourself you are
Dreaming only of the ones who never dream of you
I'm your disappearing one
Vanish when the curtain's drawn
But I will come again, and you will let me in
And you'll see I never disappear for long

Into your room I stumble now
Too tired to cower, and it's too late to draw you out
And there you lie like a painting of christ
Bleeding on the heads of the ones who nailed you down
I'm your disappearing one
Vanish when the curtain's drawn
But I will come again, and you will let me in
And you'll see I never disappear for longback to top
Pillow of Your Bones
The embers of the saint inside of you
Are growing as I'm bathing in your glow
I'm swallowing the poison of your flower
And hanging on the rising of my low
Colorful and falling from your mouth
Like a painted fever in recoil
Like a lie without the pain

On a pillow of your bones
I will lay across the stones
Of your shore until the tide comes crawling back

A waning hand on silver granite ways
Will mend my broken limbs and bend my haze
I'm sleeping in the silence of your voice
I'm cradling the peril of my only choice
Colorful and falling from your mouth
Like a painted fever in recoil
Like a lie without the pain

On a pillow of your bones
I will lay across the stone
Of your shore until the tide comes crawling back
Throw my pillow on the fire
Make my bed under the eye
Of your moon until the tide comes crawling back

Even though the truth can burn inside or fall behind
I will wander through your open mind
And you will find no lie can hide
Until the tide comes crawlingback to top
Steel Rain
And so we start another day together
You and I and a million miles between us
I train my moods to bloom like flowers unfolding
Instead of fluttering around
And slowly drowning in the
Steel rain, it's taking over

The sky is open and the drones are pouring out
The day inhales in a contagious yawn
And there you smile as though the sun
Were bouncing in the
Steel rain, it's taking over

Here in our little world, the tiny world spins for me
All's well in the titled world, but there's something
Falling down in the
Steel rain, it's taking overback to top
