about

Chris Cornell and this particular song reminds me of a time in 2014 when I was battling depression. I was performing my first concert at the World Guitar Festival (FGMAT) in Quebec. However, the introduction to those thoughts came when I was 15 years old and a wave of suicide hit my community. More than a dozen people took their lives over a 4 year span - an enormous amount considering that our small town only had 35,000 people. But over the course of time, I made amends with myself and closed that door. The death of Chris Cornell cracked that door open and served as a reminder of who I am and where I’ve been. This song is not only a tribute to Chris, but also serves as part of my healing. It is also dedicated to the masses who suffer from depression on a daily basis.

lyrics

Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I'm doing time
Now I'm doing time
'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days
Whomsoever I've cured, I've sickened now
And whomsoever I've cradled, I've put you down
I'm a search light soul they say
But I can't see it in the night
I'm only faking when I get it right
When I get it right


Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days
How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, uh
So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine
Don't you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying
