CHRIS CORNELL The Keeper

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL The Keeper Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

I come from far away
My boots donít know this ground
But they know itís real
It doesnít take too long
For this road to become
A battlefield

And before I let one more fire go out
Understand that I wonít give one inch of ground
From beneath yours and my feet
Whatever the price happens to be
I may not be the keeper of the flame
But I am the keeper

Beauty and truth collide
Where love meets genocide
Where laughter meets fear
Confusion all around
And as I try to feed these mouths
That have never known singing

And before I let one more tear hit the ground
I will be the one standing between you and the sound
Of the rounds echoing out
Out of the dark
The smoke and the spark
Aimed at the heart of the flame
I am the keeper ooooh

I cannot see the light
At the end of the tunnel tonight
My eyes are weary
And before I let one more life get erased
From the ashes I will rise for you and the ghosts
Of the names the faces and frames
The love and the pain for you I remain
Though Iím not worthy of being
The keeper of the flame
I am the keeper yeahhhhh
I am the keeper.
