Alice In Chains - Heaven Beside You Lyrics



Be what you wanna be
See what you came to see
Been what you wanna be
I don't like what I see

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you think you have it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up, and I'm not blind
I'm just see through faded, super jaded
And out of my mind

Do what you wanna do
Go out and seek your truth
When I'm down and blue
Rather be me than you

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you wish you had it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up, and I'm not blind
I'm just see through faded, super jaded
And out of my mind

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you... Hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you... Hell within
And you know you have it still, heaven inside you

So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up, but You're not blind
You're just see through faded, overrated
And out of your mind

  2. MrChiaboy

    I love how their songs take very dark turns and circle the drain.

  3. Siervo de Jesucristo

    Es una chulada de canción.......AdViEnTo.

  4. Celtic Moon Hutcheson

    Let’s all take a moment to thank Jerry! He stood by his best friend Layne through it all. Such great artists and friends..

  5. LightingUrMind

    One of the best unplugged performances ever...

  10. Jane Layne

    Marie Jane

    idk i am asking myself the same think buddy

    Zelotious

    Look up 3 comments. A song to Layne from Jerry. He can see the bad shit that happened but you dont have to go out that way. I'd rather have that pain then to see you killing your self.

  11. Showtime

    classic...

  12. Damian Funes

    The best grunge voice!!

  13. Kevin Hart

    Layne and Jerry's vocal harmonies is so GOOD!! They are like one voice when they are actually singing together like Paul McCartney and John Lennon

  14. Sheila T.

    Michael🍀🌹

  15. Omair Sheikh

    Fucking hell this song never gets old, even after 11 years

  16. Bernhard Oehler

    smart beautifully made rock music

  17. Orion Rahman

    The look at Jerry's Face... He was probably remembering her ex Girlfriend...

    danny2phantom

    Orion Rahman haha fuck that bitch

    Kaori Kanzaki

    @danny2phantom yep she doesn't deserve nice guy like him

    Chris Topher

    Explain

  18. Anthony Serfass

    Jerry and Layne really were fantastic together

  19. Joe Roution

    Probably my favorite song from the self titled album.

  20. Wayne Blackwood

    Thank you Jerry and RIP Layne <3

  21. Wayne Blackwood

    Loved this more than the original... I cried so hard... <3

    Jay P

    Check your estrogen levels there sir.

    Wayne Blackwood

    @Jay P There you are! I was wondering when you'd show up.

    Jay P

    @Wayne Blackwood sorry my pain is self chosen.

  22. Uxmal Díaz

    Layne is totally gone

  23. Stove Harsh

  25. Jimmy Gross

    I used to have Alice In Chains' MTV Unplugged as a CD/DVD combo

  26. STEVE P

    RIP Layne.

  27. luiz guilherme moreira sales

    Nossa essa banda Alice In Chains é muito boa gostei do som olá gente sou do Brasil

  28. bb oliver

    This was always my favorite song of theirs, but I always wondered... their best song, with their worst singer.... why?? people may come up with excuses, but they are fooling themselves, the best parts here even are when staley sings. I'm starting to think the bad singer would like beat him with his guitar or something when he took attention from him.

  29. HELLBOY

    No one ever says it rip mike

  30. zacattack500

    I think I like this unplugged better than the original

  31. Mr. Bounce!

    Layne and Jery match made in heaven! Aic had one of the greatest acoustic songs.

  32. Paul Wilson

    Every one of Layne’s band mates knew he was at the end of his rope. They should have never had on here.

  33. Pratikshit Nanda

    Jerry is a Guitar genius

  34. bluebird

    One of the truly great bands from the 90s and their music still holds up

  35. Mārtiņs Beerzinsh

    Alice In Chains is a bad band.






    Bad in making bad songs

    pm mm

    Metete en otra parte entonces chuchetumare , anda a escuchar reggaeton

  36. Infinity_ops

    I know I’m late on commenting. But. I was born in 05 and me and only a couple of other friends are the only people at my school who care about this music. Pretty sad

    Ahmed GaminG

    Im from 2004 .. me and my cousins and my brother care about that kind of music ... we are intrested in Rock and Grunge classic music .. .. and im a big fan of Alice in Chains and all the grunge bands ... Im From Tunisia !

    Infinity_ops

    Ahmed GaminG that’s cool dude!

    Brendan Mullin

    Infinity_ops Hey man. I’m a junior in HS and I know what you’re going through. It’s sad to see how everyone’s polluted by the nonsensical music. Good to find someone who listens to exceptional music🤟✌️

    John Dalton

    Not sad! Keep the torch burning. The 90s were an amazing time.

    Carter Cooke

    '01 and I feel you

  37. Vlaho Mihočević

    I' m hc Nirvana fan...this unplugged is better, better sound..of guitars singing...

  38. Eli Kenitz

    Their harmony together is a match made in heaven...R.I.P. Layne...

  39. LG 556677

    Whatever 54 people disliked this aren’t okay in the head

    De S

    That's F..up and not right!.. i miss them.. i caught up with them later.. but still love them today.. and way past 2019!!

  40. Umbrace Titan

    You know your band is good when your backup can have a band of his own

    Dexter M.

    Or Nirvana...your drummer can go on and have a huge band. Some of these 90s bands were so talented.

    Andrew Mitchell

    Dexter M. That drummer looks like the lead singer of foo fighters!

  41. Nicole Diaz

    I remember when I was little and my dad would play Alice In Chains on repeat and then we would get to Heaven Beside You and I would get so confused cause it didn't sound like Layne at all and then years later when I was like maybe 10 I figured it out LOL. What a beautiful fucking song. nothings better than just blasting it full volume and letting it consume you.

    Jay P

    Nothing better than rolling a fat blunt and blasting this along with dirt.
    Oh yeah and STP purple.

    iAMthe_underdog

    @Jay P yessir

  42. John Frost

    great song 4 long ass drive i love his voice

  43. StetLan

    This is definitely the best unplugged that MTV ever released. And every track from this performance (in my opinion) is better that their respective album versions. Jerry just knows how to write music man. And he put this set list together perfectly. His vocals with Layne backing him (on most tracks) is the perfect combination.

    LORD JIMBLES

    The only song I don't like is killer is me

  44. Agustian Dwi

    Smooth.... 😄

  45. September Sun

    I wanna hear Alice In Chains do “Heaven Beside You” with Eddie Vedder... we’re over due for a Cantrell / Vedder duo lol

  46. Alesdixstreet

    Layne always with his closed eyes

    LORD JIMBLES

    Because he was nodding off apparently

  47. OfficialIsaacCurrier

    Like a cold (ass) winter chill

  48. Floyd Zepplin

    Great performance, every song is killer

  49. kyle1m

    note the garbage can beside Jerry, he had food poisoning during this

  50. Ghxstkidd_

    Be what you want to be

    Like the coldest winter chill
    Heaven beside you, hell within
    Like the coldest winter will
    Heaven beside you, hell within

  51. Jônatas Rocha

    Al lado del infierno

  53. togkalo ta

    rahul dio

    @LORD woah woah I get that your angry and I understand why your angry too.The scum above is talking out of his ass but don't you fucking talk shit about nirvana.Nirvana was 10 times better than AIC and this is coming from an AIC fan

    pm mm

    Nada que ver

    chic rad

    Ironic cause then you talk shit about aic. They play different styles and shouldnt be compared, both pioneered grunge well

  54. Metal Sharon

    Love this song & Jerry Cantrell is Hot!!

  55. Vincent Roman

    29 people will never feel heaven beside them

  56. hamiltweek

    i like how cantrelll is giving his vocal impressions strong it shows he is in the box with this song . awesome

  57. Sam Baxter

    Alice in chains died after the singer lyne Staley was found dead thats where this band ended I haven't listened to them since.

  58. Brandi Ray

    STILL LOVE AIC & LAYNE IN 2019

  59. Tony Bandanna

    Like the coldest winter chill...

  60. Pam De-Mode

    Like the coldest winter chill
    Heaven beside you, hell within...🖤

  61. Patrice Williams

    Freaking amazing

  62. Kevin Allison

    The SHIT!!!

  63. Melanie C

    "I'm just see through faded, super jaded, and out of my mine.."

    J Gerard

    Um...no

    Melanie C

    J Gerard Awe your right! I know the lyrics!! Brain must have fizzled out. All fixed.

  64. Rfalm

    Não é apenas uma canção, é uma obra de arte, mostra que nossa espécie é capaz de fazer coisas absurdamente maravilhosas. Essa música, com certeza, será ouvida e lembrada por décadas, séculos, milênios...

  65. Matt Williamson

    Just think...... this is the band that Axl Rose took Jerry's demo tape.... and threw it away... fuck that guy.

  66. Ricardo Moreira

    Brasil representando 🙂

  67. James A. Corrigan

    This recording is better than anything Nirvana ever did.

    bar ost

    Nirvana was shit lol.

    Duncan W. Lievi

    AIC is amazing, and this is probably their most recognizable work. The Seattle grunge scene gave us some of the best music. Nirvana also had a unique sound, just like AIC. There's no point in comparing artists, since their success lies in different areas, and both have a large following -- so they are doing something right.
    Just appreciate all that.

    Omega Horizon

    Make no mistake Nirvana's NY unplugged is one of the best live albums of all time..

  68. the valleyratt

    16 people accidentally clicked on dislike without knowing.

  69. Richard Marshall Bowman

    I sit here (Seattle) thinking about all of the greats that came from these parts....from Jimi to Layne (2 of my favorite people in he whole world).   Of all of the great bands Alice In Chains is prolly my fave.

  70. Cody Totten

    I love the first chord struck in this song, opens the song up perfectly.

  71. Mike Dorsey

    The last era where amazing music like this was in no short supply. I hope these guys were appreciated properly because my god they were/are extremely talented.

    CDaniel J80

    There's no better way to put it.

    mark s

    Music this great has always been in short supply, just, miraculously not so much through the 60s and up until the internet fwiw

  72. Jônatas Rocha

    Equalizacao sinistra

  73. Emilio

    That's how it's done kids.

    Kellie Fernandez

    Who is the kid in the video? Looks like it could be Lane or Jerry's child

  74. Scotty mx918

    Hell yeah miss these dudes

  75. filzzy

    Always seen myself as a stanley hooked on smack but have some charisma about myself

  76. elhombredemierda

    Many years later I still listen to this 🤘

  77. Michael S

    Serbia, Jan 9. 2019.

  78. Michael S

    Beautiful sound of acoustic bass.

  79. Jefferson Andres Araujo Mendoza

    Like the coldest winter will, heaven beside you...

  80. Lostboy FlyingHigh

    Remember the day my buddy Greg played this for the first time. Good times. #420

  81. Jehovah's Bitch

    I've never liked Alice in Chains. I've always loved them

    Ethan Sutfin

    They had us there in the first half

    Yaseen ElOlemy

    @Ethan Sutfin aint gonna lie

    Chema

    Hell yea

    Kelly Lappin

    From the first time saw them!

  82. misslornamae

    Layne was so unbelievably talented, but Jerry is as well. He writes and sings so well. Those two were a match made in heaven.

    Sander Zijl

    Damn why are sean kinney and mike inez not praised. They are also great

    Evelyn Alvarado

    Jerry is a king! Layne is a legend...but Cantrell is AIC

    Jersey Rebel

    Jerry’s vocals aren’t the best though. They’re ok

    Sander Zijl

    @Jersey Rebel his voice matches the music very well. Isnt that what it's all about. And remember, jerry isn't the lead singer.

    Mr.nicholas

    Jerry is Alice

  83. Maru Frusciante

    3:02 I wanna be Jerry's mic

  84. Herb Wand

    You can see in Jerry's eyes his brother is long gone ....very sad

  85. Jj Stewart

    Forget the trolls) ( just feel his presence and sing x

  86. Joseph P Liptak Jr

    This is the last place Lane wants to be.

  87. Mode Anthony

    Rather be Me than you! Unplugged

  88. Kenneth Williams

    6 people are insane, there should be no dislikes to a perfect song.

  89. Mode Anthony

    Their fucking rad Harmony
    In sync one comment untouchable
    Yes you guys did

  90. Randy Lafferty

    Love this band.

  91. Staley Cornell

    Best fucking harmony ever!!
    Like the coldest winter chill...
    Heaven beside you...Hell within
    Like the coldest winter will...
    Heaven beside you...Hell within

  92. Eduardo Rodriguez

    My god this song rocks my house. The quality is outstanding!

  93. Johnny Borg

    Fantastic. Thanks for the music

  94. Joey Gallaнorn Sr.

    Love it absolutely

  95. DTOM

    This was low key the best performance from Unplugged. Everyone on point. Sounds even better than the album version.

    zny

    @mez the undead nah it's terrible, stupid guitar solo shit takes away from songs often.

    HWL Hellbent

    I'd say "Frogs" or "Over Now"

    Rayene Boussetta

    @zny true but not on this song imo

    Gerry Jones

    Close vs nirvana's

    noahkb80

    Layne barely has any part in this song. I think its a shitty choice for this venue. Everyone has a role in every song and he just has a few back up lines. And sometimes this song feels like a shot at layne
