Say Hello 2 Heaven (Temple of the Dog demo 1990) (Audio)

Please, mother mercy
Take me from this place
And the long winded curses
I hear in my head

The words never listen
And teachers, all that never learn
Now warmth from the candle
But I feel too cold to burn

He came from an island
Then he died from the street
And he hurt so bad like a soul breaking
But he never said nothing to me, yeah

So say, "Hello to heaven, heaven, heaven"
Say, "Hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, yeah"

New like a baby, lost like a prayer
The sky was your playground
But the cold ground was your bed

Oh, so, poor stargazer
She's got no tears in her eyes
But smooth like a whisper
She knows that love heals all wounds with time

Now it seems like too much love
Is never enough, yeah, you better seek out
Another road 'cause this one has ended abrupt, oh

Say, "Hello to heaven, heaven, heaven"
Say, "Hello to heaven, heaven, heaven"
Say, "Hello to heaven, heaven, heaven"

I, I never wanted
To write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases
Of things we'll never do

Hey, so I blow out, out the candle and I put you to bed
Since you can't say to me now
How the dog broke your bone
There's just one thing left to be said

Say, "Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah"
Say, "Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah"
Say, "Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah"
Say, "Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah"
