CHRIS CORNELL Misery Chain

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Misery Chain Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

Won’t you take one link, from this misery chain.
Keep it to remind you, of a long forgotten time or a place.
So that you recognize its shape, when it’s near.
Any time or place this misery chain should appear.

Take the locks and shackles, and melt all of it down.
Shine a light upon, every shadow, every acre of ground.
The hidden corners on in all around
Anyway you feel this misery chain should be found.

When we’re gone, and it’s all said and done.
What will we leave.
Stories told, will they speak of us when God only knows
That those word will be.

And if I should fall, from the top of the world
To the depths below, so far below where our believe could exist.
Down further still will be, the one who hides the key.
And there’s to try to put these misery chains on me.

When we’re gone, and it’s all said and done.
What will we leave.
Stories told, will they speak of us when God only knows
That those word will be.

Won’t you take one link, from this misery chain.
Keep it to remind you, of a long forgotten time or a place.
So that you recognize it, ’till it’s understood.
And that every trace of this misery chain is gone for good.
’til every trace of this misery chain is gone for good.

CHRIS CORNELL Wrong Side

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Wrong Side Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

When I was just a boy of ten
My father met a minerís death
Trapped inside through twenty nights
No one made it out alive
So there I was alone but free
The master of my destiny
And trouble found me right away
My close companions since that day

And Iím on the side of the road again
Iím on the wrong side my friend
Whichever way the wind is blowing
No matter where the river bends
I’m on the side of wrong again

At 21 I fell in love
To a girl of 16 years
But a jealous father ran me down
Left me in the road for dead
So I decided there and then
Iíd find the car, Iíd take revenge
But the fire caught the house and fields
I havenít slept a whole night since

And Iím on the side of wrong again
Iím on the wrong side my friend
Whichever way the wind is blowing
No matter where the river bends
Iím on the side alone again
Iím on the side of wrong again

I ran three years and finally stopped
Cut my hair and found a job
Working in a road cafť
Sleeping in the parking lot
Late one night the store was robbed
The owner dead his boy was shot
And Iím the only one he sold
Now Iím waiting for the trap door to drop

And Iím on the side of the road again
Iím on the wrong side my friend
Whichever way the wind is blowing
No matter where the river bends
Iím on the side alone again
Iím on the side of wrong again
Iím on the side of wrong again

CHRIS CORNELL Bend In The Road

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Bend In The Road Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

In a bend in the road
Iím too lost and tired
To see where Iím going
What I left behind
And Iím moving
So slow
Donít know when Iíll arrive
So put a bend in the road
Iím growing tired
Of straight lines

I set off for the shore
And I finally slipped away
From the ones i adored
And the place i was raised
And I rode down the road
Just to watch it go by
And when and where is love?
Maybe nowhere tonight

Everyone needs a touch
Or a shoulder for crying
The say love is a crutch
I say love is blind
And thatís all that she needed
But I could not supply
When a bend in the road
Put it out of my mind

There was a strange little girl
Who was everything I ever dreamed
I could love or be loved by

So put a bridge
Or a hill
Or a forest of pines
Or a river of blue
I can run along side
Iíll sleep when itís night
I follow all the signs
Just put a bend in the road
Iím growing tired of straight lines
Put a bend in the road
Iím growing tired of straight lines

CHRIS CORNELL Our Time In The Universe

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Our Time In The Universe Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

Waiting
Upon the dunes of earth and sand
In the morning
The flame appears upon your hand
Swallow
The fears of empty promise hearts
And remember
We only just got to the stars

Save the dying arms of midnight
For the patience and or lapse of light
Cuz itís our time in the universe
Well I donít mind
If we’re blessed or cursed
And itís our time in the universe
Yours and mine

Breathing
Beneath miles of earth and sky
And in sunlight
I will appear before your eyes
So donít worry
On what tomorrow holds for you
Iíll be waiting
At the end of every road you choose

Save the dying arms of midnight
Cuz itís our time in the universe
Well I donít mind
If we’re blessed or cursed
Well itís our time in the universe
Yours and mine

See you donít fall
No matter the end
See it unfold no matter the need
See it fold up whatever happens to be
Itís what it will be
Itís what it will be

Cuz itís our time in the universe
Well I donít mind
If we’re blessed or cursed
Yeah itís our time in the universe
Yours and mine
Yours and mine

CHRIS CORNELL Circling

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Circling Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

Night falls while drunken angels
Sleep by the side of the road
And I’m nodding in a stairwell
Just trying to stay out of the cold

Circling around the drain
Can’t find my way back to home
The road is long
And never ends
Dark is the heart that wanders

Light breaks in through the window
Takes a minute to know where I am
A dying blackbird
Gives her soul to the wind
On the roof of the house
That I can see from the bed

Circling around the drain
Show me the way back home
The road is long
It never ends
Dark is the heart that wanders

I’d crawl a hundred thousand miles
Just to see your two eyes look me over
I’d steal you flowers in the bloodshot light
Of the lonely hours on a moonless night

Just like a stray dog in the rain
I can run all night and get nowhere
I picture you out underneath the porch light
Calling my name all night
And waiting for me

I thought I heard your voice in the water
As I walked by a fountain uptown
Now I’m an orphaned at the door of church
Just watching the water come down

Circling around the drain
Hope that I make it home
I never felt so far away
Dark is the heart
That wanders.

CHRIS CORNELL Only These Words

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Only These Words Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

In a castle
Down a long road
A little girl was born
To a king and
To a queen and
Her motherís eyes welled up with tears of joy
Staring at the tiny face
Of a miracle she made
She would say I love you
She would say I love you

Summer came and went
Unrolling trees all stripped to the bone
Daddyís little girl in his arms, well
They sit upon his throne
Who is that thief hiding in the dark
Just a little girl who stole his heart

He would say I love you
He would say I love you
He would say I love you

With only these three words repeating
A simple greeting but itís all you keep
Clever lips can be misleading
A tongue can fly away
And wonít come back
But itís only these words we recognize

6 oíclock A.M
The alarm rings out
Awoken from the dream
No more castle down a long road
No more kings and no more queens
But sheís a princess none the less
And a handsome prince is what sheíll get

He will say I love you
He will say I love you
He will say I love you
He will say I love you
He will say I love you

CHRIS CORNELL Let Your Eyes Wander

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Let Your Eyes Wander Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

When you find love
And it gets away
If it comes back to you
Then it will stay
Well maybe itís true
As dumb as it sounds
I ainít gonna stop you
From looking around

So let your eyes wander
Wild and free
Sooner or later
You will look back
To me

Love can be sharp
Make no mistake
Flatter a good heart
Then watch it break
It’ll cut you to the bone
Just to see you bleed out
But that doesnít mean, no
Iím somebody else

So let your eyes wander
The moment you think
You see something better
Better than me
So let your eyes wander
Wander away
And Iíll look no further
You will come back one day

Followed every word that I have ever heard
And I still donít know what to say
I always think Iím losing
When my lips are moving
Time to shut up anyway
Followed every line
That I remember trying
But they never worked in the end
No more need for talking
If you feel like walking
Youíre gonna walk anyway

I know you can tell
The difference between
One lonely tear falling
And a season of rain

So let your eyes wander
Wander away
Your heart is young
And longing to stray
Let your eyes wander
Wild and free
Sooner or later
They will look back
They will look back
They will look back
To me

CHRIS CORNELL Higher Truth

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Higher Truth Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

You can make somebody cry
Go on
Do what you like
Iíll be there by your side
I know
What the future holds

You can set the world on fire
Yeah if you want
It isnít hard
I wonít be there looking on
To see the trail of lies
As you fall

But Iíll take the truth
The higher truth
The higher truth
I want the truth
The higher truth
The higher truth

You can fill the world with pain
Yeah if you want
I’ve seen it now
You can fill the world with hate
Iíve seen it done before
And I know how it all works out

Make a promise if you can
You know
Youíll only break it
Make a promise if you dare
Go on right ahead
And letís see where it gets you

But Iíll take the truth
The higher truth
The higher truth
I want the truth
The higher truth
The higher truth

Maybe you and I one day
Will finally choose
A higher truth

Come letís sit in the sun
Feel the world spin around
As the birds fly overhead
Canít you hear the waves
Canít you feel the rain
As it falls upon your face

Iíll take a truth
A higher truth
A higher truth
I want the truth
The higher truth
A higher truth

Iíll take a truth
A higher truth
A higher truth
I want the truth
The higher truth
A higher truth

Maybe you and I one day will finally choose
The higher truth

Canít you feel the higher
Canít you feel the higher
As it falls around?

CHRIS CORNELL Murder Of Blue Skies

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Murder Of Blue Skies Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

You flew in on the wind
Was a day that I won’t forget
Told me to let you in
And that I would not regret it
But you had a touch as cool as rain
And only once the weather changed

Murderer of blue skies
I can’t wait
To never be with you again
And I can’t wait
To lead a life that you’re not in
And I won’t break
Though I may bend
From time to time
I can’t wait to never be with you again

Now, the truth will set you free
But all you had was lying in you
So you built a cage for me
All the while pretending to be
A living saint with a thorny crown
And me condemned to be your clown
I applaud you as you take a bow

I can’t wait
To never be with you again
And I can’t wait
To lead a life that you’re not in
And I won’t break
Though I may bend
From time to time
I can’t wait to never be with you

Always thought that I pride myself on patience
But it’s wearing thin
Never thought that falling for you only meant
Falling down

I can’t wait
To never be with you again
And I can’t wait
To lead a life that you’re not in
And I won’t break
Though I may bend

I can’t wait
To never be with you again
And I can’t wait
To lead a life that you’re not in
And I won’t break
Though I may bend
From time to time
I can’t wait to never be with you again
I can’t wait to never be with you again

CHRIS CORNELL Josephine

Lyrics from Musicaward CHRIS CORNELL Josephine Lyrics, singer by CHRIS CORNELL

Josephine where can you be now?
Again the sun is rising on my troubled heart
Donít deny you know you and I
Are the making of what fate
Just canít pull apart

My sweet Josephine
Wonít you come and marry me?
I got every kind of love that you would ever need
Dying here on bended knees

Sheets of rain
Cold and gray
Run down the page
Just about your name
With just the weight of your silent smile
Crashing all around me while i screamed it out loud

My sweet Josephine
Wonít you come and marry me?
I got every kind of love that you would ever need
Dying here on bended knees

Like a raven in a cage
Blood on my birth
Just wonít wash away
Like a stitched together doll
My feet to the flame
As I follow the blame
For someone elseís pain
For someone elseís pain

Rivers of black ink flood
A tapestry of flesh and blood around my frame
A living shrine just for you of human mind
Golden pen upon your hand
Leave this endless winter behind

My sweet josephine
Wonít you come and marry me?
I got every single kind of love that you would ever need
Dying here on bended knees
Dying here on bended knees
Dying here on bended knees
My Josephine
