Blessed repose, Chris Cornell.

He was in no small way the soundtrack of my youth. Temple of the Dog is my favorite album and I think I still own almost every Soundgarden album from my teens. Blessed repose, Chris Cornell. Christ is risen!

Please, mother mercy
Take me from this place
And the long winded curses
I keep hearing in my head
Words never listen
And teachers never learn
Now I'm warm from the candle
But I feel too cold to burn
He came from an island
And he died from the street
He hurt so bad like a soul breaking
But he never said nothing to me
So say hello to heaven

New like a baby
Lost like a prayer
The sky was your playground
But the cold ground was your bed
Poor stargazer
She 's got no tears in her eyes
Smooth like whisper
She knows that love heals all wounds with time
Now it seems like too much love
Is never enough, you better seek out
Another road 'cause this one has
Ended abrupt, say hello to heaven

I never wanted
To write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases
Of things we 'll never do
So I blow out the candle, and
I put you to bed
Since you can 't say to me
Now how the dogs broke your bone
There 's just one thing left to be said
Say hello to heaven

- Temple of the Dog
Say Hello to Heaven
