Chris Cornell - Circling Lyrics




Night falls while drunken angels
Sleep by the side of the road
And I'm nodding in a stairwell
Just trying to stay out of the cold

Circling around the drain
Can't find my way back to home
The road is long
And never ends
Dark is the heart that wanders

Light breaks in through the window
Takes a minute to know where I am
A dying blackbird
Gives her soul to the wind
On the roof of the house
That I can see from the bed

Circling around the drain
Show me the way back home
The road is long
It never ends
Dark is the heart that wanders

I'd crawl a hundred thousand miles
Just to see your two eyes look me over
I'd steal you flowers in the bloodshot light
Of the lonely hours on a moonless night

Just like a stray dog in the rain
I can run all night and get nowhere
I picture you out underneath the porch light
Calling my name all night
And waiting for me

I thought I heard your voice in the water
As I walked by a fountain uptown
Now I'm an orphaned at the door of church
Just watching the water come down

Circling around the drain
Hope that I make it home
I never felt so far away
Dark is the heart
That wanders.

    Night falls while drunken angels
    Sleep by the side of the road
    Now I'm nodding in the stairwell
    Just trying to stay out of the cold

    Circling
    Around the drain
    Can’t find my way back home
    The road is long
    And never ends
    Dark is the heart
    That wanders

    Light breaks in through the window
    Takes a minute to know where I am
    A dying blackbird gives his soul to the wind
    On the roof of the house that I can see from my bed

    Circling
    Around the drain
    Show me the way back home
    The road is long
    And never ends
    Dark is the heart
    That wanders


    I'll crawl a hundred thousand miles
    Just to see your two eyes look me over
    I’d steal you flowers in the bloodshot light
    Of lonely hours of a moonless night

    Just like a stray dog in the rain
    I can run all night and get nowhere
    I picture you out underneath the porch light
    Calling my name and now you’re waiting for me

    I thought I heard your voice in the water
    As I walked by a fountain uptown
    Now I don’t often let the door of a church
    Just watching the water calm down

    Circling
    Around the drain
    Hope that I make it home
    I’ve never felt
    So far away
    Dark is the heart
    That wanders

    #1... of the three songs that first began to waken me, after seeing "HigherTruth" tour advertised on youtube... Dec. 4, 2015... My first way back reference memories this song prompted began "in the middle of our story" with my porch fulla flowers. 1983. I love you, cc. TY4SHINING.
