Dead Wishes

Chris Cornell

Higher Truth


Staring in the mirror with two borrowed eyes
Looking for a part of me that's still alive
Waiting for my chest to fall and rise

Standing on the corner with my shirt tucked in
Summer turns to autumn
winter turns to spring
And it all flies by
Like a speeding train

Dead wishes on a broken chain
White roses in a dead man's dream
Down and out
With everything to lose
If these long dead wishes
Never do come true

Waiting for the night to come and chase away
All the flies hovering around my head
With my memories for a pillow
And all my regrets for a bed

Standing on the corner now I'm passed surprise
Yelling out a warning to some passer by
I stand just as God made me
And I lie down in disguise

Dead wishes on a burning lake
White roses for my soul to keep
Diving down with everything to win
If my long since sunken ship
Ever does come in

Down and down we all fall down
And that's how ancient mountains crumble

Time keeps moving slower
Like falling from the sun
Come and knock me over
I keep getting up
Throw a line down to me
Keep hanging on

Standing on the corner don't apologize
You don't have to bow your head or raise your eyes
Or pretend that you don't see me

Dead wishes on a broken chain
White roses in a dead man's dream
Down and out
With everything to lose
If these long dead wishes
These long dead wishes
Ever do come true

Down and down we all fall down
And that's how ancient mountains crumble
