  • You flew in on the wind
    Was a day that I won't forget
    Told me to let you in
    And that I would not regret it
    But you had a touch as cool as rain
    And only once the weather changed

    Murder of blue skies
    I can't wait
    To never be with you again
    And I can't wait
    To lead a life that you're not in
    And I won't break
    Though I may bend
    From time to time
    I can't wait to never be with you again

    Now, the truth will set you free
    But all you had was lying in you
    So you built a cage for me
    All the while pretending to be
    A living saint with a thorny crown
    And me condemned to be your clown
    I applaud you as you take a bow

    I can't wait
    To never be with you again
    And I can't wait
    To lead a life that you're not in
    And I won't break
    Though I may bend
    From time to time
    I can't wait to never be with you

    I always thought that I pride myself on patience
    But it's wearing thin
    Never thought that falling for you only meant
    Falling down

    Falling down
    Falling down

    I can't wait
    To never be with you again
    And I can't wait
    To lead a life that you're not in
    And I won't break
    Though I may bend

    I can't wait
    To never be with you again
    And I can't wait
    To lead a life that you're not in
    And I won't break
    The one they bend
    From time to time
    I can't wait to never be with you again
    I can't wait to never be with you again Writer/s: Chris Cornell

  • Gabriel from LondonFor his comments, it seems he's putting himself in the place of someone else to sing this, there are other songs in the album that talk about other people's broken hearts, like "Ghost". I think he purposely wrote this song to fit very different subjects and people, made it generic enough to allow every listener to interpretate the song and adapt it to personal experiences.
  • Btwinlines from UruguayMmmm, to me it looks more like someone who does cocain reminding himself how harmful she can actually be, and wishing to never do it again. Maybe It's because I've been through it, but that message and the actual lyrics fit in a curious way.
