The Morning I Said Goodbye (Tribute to Angel)


#1

Hey there my friend, where’d you go so soon?
Leaving me alone with my own mind
Leaving me behind in this neighbourhood
It’s only with you, I’m fine

Today’s the day you came
Today’s the day I’ll go
Memories will be still-framed
Living here’s like a chore

All this time where have you been?
All the sights you have unseen
But from the pain, you are free
Once again, your soul is clean
In the morning, let me say goodbye
I’ll join you, oh my friend, tonight
Just give me some time, let me say goodbye
I promise I will join you tonight

Thinking of you since your soul went missin’
Thinking of you since I wept as I was singin’
Thinking of you as I felt loneliness increasin’
Thinking of you as I gave up at the moment

Is there any chance you’re still around
Are you still swimming or have you drowned
Tell me you’re still walking on this earth
Not buried six feet underneath dirt

All this time where have you been?
All the sights you have unseen
But from the pain, you are free
Once again, your soul is clean
In the morning, let me say goodbye
I’ll join you, oh my friend, tonight
Just give me some time, let me say goodbye
I promise I will join you tonight

Oh

Morning light creeping in through my windows
But all I see everywhere now is darkness
My last breath in and out through my nose
My mind has fogged up, my eyes misted up

All this time where have you been?
All the sights you have unseen
But from the pain, you are free
Once again, your soul is clean
In the morning, let me say goodbye
I’ll join you, oh my friend, tonight
Just give me some time, let me say goodbye
I promise I will join you tonight

Halo above your head
Wings on your back
Nothing’s weighing you down, not your demons-filled heavy bag
Halo above my head
Wings on my back
Nothing’s weighing me down, not my demons-filled heavy bag

This song is like an open letter from Chaz to Chris Cornell. I always get these mental images of moments before he passed away. So, yeah.
