Soundgarden Burden In My Hand Lyrics

Last updated: 07/24/2014 08:19:53 AM

Follow me into the desert
As thirsty as you are
Crack a smile and cut your mouth
And drown in alcohol
Cause down below the truth is lying
Beneath the riverbed
So quench yourself and drink the water
That flows below her head

Oh, no there she goes
Out in the sunshine the sun is mine

I shot my love today, would you cry for me
I lost my head again, would you lie for me

Close your eyes and bow your head
I need a little sympathy
Cause fear is strong and love's for everyone
Who isn't me
Kill your health and kill yourself
And kill everything you love
And if you live you can fall to pieces
And suffer with my ghost

I shot my love today, would you cry for me
I lost my head again, would you lie for me
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
I lost my head again, would you cry for me

Just a burden in my hand
Just an anchor on my heart
Just a tumor in my head
And I'm in the dark

So follow me into the desert
As desperate as you are
Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
And all the little pigs have God

Oh, no there she goes
Out in the sunshine the sun is mine, sun is mine

I shot my love today, would you cry for me
I lost my head again, would you lie for me
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
I lost my head again, would you cry for me
Yeah, would you cry for me

Chris Cornell is incredible | Reviewer: Dennis Carrier | 7/24/14

There have been some incredible vocalists in rock and roll. I think of Steve Perry and Rob Halford. But Chris Cornell may be the best in the business today. Everybody's voice weakens when they get older. May Chris hold his own for many years to come!

Soundgarden are simply amazing. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/9/11

Soundgarden are one of the best bands to come out of Seattle. Wonderful song. Wonderful vocals by Chris. Wonderful and insightful lyrics.
I'm so glad that Soundgarden have reunited and are in the process of releasing a new album either this autumn or early next year.

stuff | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/15/09

CORNELL KICKS ASS. Ha, I'm so glad I can sing his stuff well! :D He was like, my idol when I was young, and now that I've started singing, I realized I can cover his stuff better than i can do anything else, which just makes me happy. :) :)
