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

    The words never listen
    And teachers, oh they never learn
    My warmth from the candle
    Though 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 breakin'
    But he never said nothin' to me, yeah

    A'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 girl was your bed

    Ooh, I said, poor Stargazer
    She's got no tears in her eyes
    But fool like a whisper
    She knows that love heals all wounds with time

    Now it seem 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, yeah

    Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, oh oh
    (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

    Yea, 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, heaven, heaven,
    Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven,
    Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, yeah
    Say hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah yeah oh oh Writer/s: Chris Cornell
