Chris Cornell - Only These Words Lyrics




In a castle
Down a long road
A little girl was born
To a king and
To a queen and
Her mother’s eyes welled up with tears of joy
Staring at the tiny face
Of a miracle she made
She would say I love you
She would say I love you

Summer came and went
Unrolling trees all stripped to the bone
Daddy’s little girl in his arms, well
They sit upon his throne
Who is that thief hiding in the dark
Just a little girl who stole his heart

He would say I love you
He would say I love you
He would say I love you

With only these three words repeating
A simple greeting but it’s all you keep
Clever lips can be misleading
A tongue can fly away
And won’t come back
But it’s only these words we recognize

6 o’clock A.M
The alarm rings out
Awoken from the dream
No more castle down a long road
No more kings and no more queens
But she’s a princess none the less
And a handsome prince is what she’ll get

He will say I love you
He will say I love you
He will say I love you
He will say I love you
He will say I love you

    Stumbled on this song over the weekend and started to play on my accoustic. Never listened to it closely . My 14 year old daughter heard from the next room and ran in to tell me she wants this song for the father-daughter's dance at her wedding. Made me cry. I never cry. Then I read the lyrics with the song playing. Cried all over again. Determined to nail this song now, but I'm a bad guitarist and I know I'll never match the singing. Can't dance either. Good thing I have a few years to work on it. Cornell's music will live forever!

    That's awesome! I dig this song so much as well. Cornell is in my top 3 solo artists. My 3 year old daughter loves it. Anyways, I hope you do get that chance to play this at your daughter's wedding one day! And nail it. Peace.

    Lily's Song. So beautiful and yet so sad also. She's still a princess though. A beautiful elegant young lady. Papa would be proud. 🥰🥰😍😍

    In a castle
    Down a long road
    A little girl was born
    To a king and
    To a queen and
    Her mother’s eyes welled with tears of joy
    Staring at the tiny face
    Of a miracle she made
    She would say I love you
    She would say I love you
    Summer came and went
    Autumn rolled in
    Trees all stripped to bone
    Daddy’s little girl in his arms, while
    They sit upon his throne
    Who is that thief hiding in the dark?
    Just a little girl who stole his heart
    And he would say I love you
    He would say I love you
    He would say I love you
    With only these three words repeating
    A simple greeting, but it’s all we wanna hear
    Clever lips can be misleading
    A tongue can fly away
    And won't come down
    But, it’s only these words we need right now
    Six o’clock A.M
    The alarm rings out
    Awoken from a dream
    No more castle down a long road
    No more kings and no more queens
    But she’s a princess none the less
    And a handsome prince is what she’ll get
    He will say I love you
    He will say I love you
    He will say I love you
    He will say I love you
    He will say I love you
    He will say I love you
