Chris Cornell Lyrics, "Dead Wishes"


Staring in the mirror with two borrowed eyes

Looking for the part of me that's still alive

Waiting for my chest to fall...and rise

 Standing in the corner With my shirt tucked in 

 Summer turns to autumn winter turns to spring 

 And it all flies a speeding train 


 Dead wishes on a broken chain 

 White roses in a dead man's dream 

 Down and out with nothing to lose 

 If these long dead wishes 

 Ever do come true 


 Waiting for the night to come and chase away 

 All the flies gathering around my head 

 With my memory for a pillow 

 And all my regrets for a bed 


 Dead wishes on a burning lake 

 White roses from my soul to keep 

 Down and out with everything to win 

 If my long since sunken ship 

 Ever does come in
