Words & music by chris cornell

Unreleased

You and I went deeply, you and I went far and wide
You and I went gently, you and I went for a ride
But somewhere in the ashes of this burning lovers game
Somehow you decided you would find another flame


And as you lay sleeping with you eyes softly shut
I'll be cleaning my gun
When heaven or hell takes this life, I'll be done


You never lied to me, never said you'd be around for long
But somehow I believed that would be my only one
Cause you know where I'm going, you know where I'm coming from,
Now this train is slowly coming to it's final destination


As you lay sleeping with your eyes softly shut
I know it ain't me that you're dreaming of


Mother always told me love would save me from myself
Daddy always said that love would take me straight to hell
Sometimes they were righteous sometimes they were
Oh so wrong

    The agony of learning they've found someone else to love. Its excruciating and lonely. I'm sorry I did it to you dear. I don't know when or where we went wrong but I was so selfish. As I lay sleeping with my eyes softly shut, please don't be cleaning your gun. I'm sorry for how I made you feel and for hurting you so deeply. And my friend and creative friend, I'm sorry for taking what belonged to you.
