Soundgarden - By Crooked Steps Lyrics




I'm addicted to feeling
Stealing love isn't stealing
Can't you see
That I understand your mind?
I'm a walking believer
I'm a ghost and a healer
I'm the shape of the hole
Inside your heart

Not looking for a brighter side
Crooked steps will take me higher
I don't care if you want to cry

I'm a soldier for hire
Killing all you admire
And you live in denial
But that will change

Not looking for a brighter side
Crooked steps will take me higher
I don't care if you want to cry

When blood is raining down
It cuts a deep deep river
And we're diving
Yeah we're diving

Right behind you, right behind you
Right behind you, right behind you

(Right behind you...)
I'm a walking believer, I'm a ghost and a healer
Can't you see that I understand your mind?
Can't you see that I understand your mind?

My crooked steps right behind you
My crooked steps right behind you
My crooked steps right behind you
My crooked steps right behind you
Right behind you
Right behind you
Right behind you

  3. jasmina sm

    Chris was Like a Good Wine Older the better💜

  4. HOMICIDAL GHOST

    One beautiful singer♥️

  5. Dean Newberry

    ' ' great 5/4 ''

  6. Igor Tokarski

    THIS IS REAL MUSIC, NOT POP SHIT (except from COLDPLAY), and EDM/DISCO-POLO/ROCK-POLO SHITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. 64davrecon

    I laughed so f-ing hard when they turned out to be on Segways!...

  8. Igor Tokarski

    Somehow, this song sounds like Kim Nowak's track called "Urodziny" ("Birthday").

    rvz77

    Who the hell is that?

    November 2019.
    Does everyone know Soundgarden has enough for an ENTIRE NEW SOUNDGARDEN ALBUM ! Check out Siriss xm radio interview with Kim (2019)
    HOWEVER.....Here's the kick in the balls.....
    "The Estate" aka Vicky will NOT give Chris's audio to Soundgarden to complete THEIR BANDS MUSIC ????? WTF eh ?
    Lollygagging, tomfoolery, Shenanigans, PURE UNADULTERATED GREED etc, yeah that's how "The Estate" apparently rolls....SO bullshit.
    " IF " "The Estate/Vicky" will give dear Chris's music to their rightful owners.....SOUNDGARDEN !, we should be able to have this music asap, like yesterday asap
    No more bullshit right ? In the meantime, I'm watching.....and waiting.
    💚☘️🕊️

    Jennifer Hartranft

    Seattle Rain Good to know, thanks.s. Shape of the hole in my heart, mate. All my friends are skeletons.

  11. Nick Yates

    Kurt Sutter creator of sons of anarchy helped produce this music video

  12. Nobuaki Ouma

    He felt so young again.

  13. aron saenz

    Sons of anarchy!

  14. Salman MH

    Hey that's Deadmau5 at the end.

  15. Alejandro Tosi

    1:58 is that scream head voice? Loud falsetto? I think I heard Chris say in an interview that hitting the high notes wasn't as difficult for him. Great scream by the way.

  16. Paul C Lalchungnunga

    Pretty damn nice tbh

  17. KanchoKomancho

    Still kicking ass

  18. TheEriros

    Miss you gang. Love You

  19. Pastorino Olivier

    Chris was awsome in all those bands and in solo. They had great names (and it's rare) with significant and simple meaning (thanks to Chris) and amazing songs that sounded like no one else. I would love your input on the first video of my first album. It got the attention of one of my heroes Joe Bouchard (ex bass player founding members of BÖC) who is following us on Soundcloud but returns from people who likes same music is always the best. If you have just 3 minutes to listen and a bit more to comment, that would mean the world to me. Keep rockin' : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu_p1wbaCa8

  20. Protect Children At All Costs

    I waited for Paul Blart for 4:04 minutes.

  21. kitty cat meow kitty cat meow

    This video is fucking hilarious! Froundgarden my ass! Only SG could look cool on segways! Chris had a wicked sense of Irish humor. He was the total package. Hot. Incredibly talented. Hot. Humble. Hot. Kind. Hot. He only got better with age. Oh and did I say he was HOT!!!!!!! We miss you Chris......

  22. Amina Badi

    Toute mon adolescence ce groupe ! Les années 90 rien de mieux musicalement ya pas photo 👊

  23. Emily Wagner

    This is the best fucking video!

  24. Martin Rodriguez

    this video made my day. love it xdd

  25. Keiv Spare

    Who is the cop at the end? Is his identity significant?

    Keiv Spare

    ah, deadmau5. makes sense

  26. Daniel Plunkett

    What a killer band Soundgarden were I say were coz the journey is over. Its still hard coz they have been my favorite band since Superunknown and it was on my bucketlist to see them live one day. But what music they left us with 👌

  27. David Smith

    I bet they tried all different time signatures. . Till it sounded right. All parts fit. The perfect jigsaw Soundgarden gives us. So much love in every song. Even if for death. Love it all Chris.
    ♡♡♡♡♡

  28. Jan Bentley

    Soundgarden is so amazingI I can't believe I'm never gonna see. Them

  29. Nathalia Moreno

    I'm the shape of the hole inside your heart! This gets me every time! :( MISS YOU CHRIS! FOR EVER!

  30. pine marten

    One of the best music videos I've ever seen 🤘🤘🤘

  31. Altuğ ATALMIŞ

    sen niye ölüyosun ya chris amca

  32. iSputnik

    Directed by dave Grohl. Cameo by deadmau5 LOL

  33. FlashingRedNuke

    Anyone realized deadmau5 at the end of the video

  34. mercatino di recco

    miss his voice

  35. sk8 SOFTWARE

    corre Chris que vienen los crawford patriotas del f.b.i y sus torres gemelas a ahorcarte

  36. stephen burns

    I just love this man's voice
    Every song that he wrote it's GOLD

  37. HalfbreedTrini

    Man 2013. Seems so long ago. Still can’t really believe he’s gone. I guess this is how Nirvana fans felt

  38. tootired76

    Mean while on 93X in the Twin Cities this is no longer played!!

  39. Spicy Special

    I love this band, I love this video, but I just can't get over the fact that they ever got back together when Chris always SWORE they wouldn't. He seemed to loathe the idea of re-uniting, and when they came out and said they were doing it for the fans/and 'cataloge' reasons, it smacked of a money grab, something, again, that is VERY unSoundgarden. I'm not peddling any sort of conspiracy or anything, I'm just mystified/confused by all this. I was grateful that they did re-unite, I was grateful for the times I got to see them perform. I wish Chris hadn't left us. I'm glad he's not hurting anymore, but I wish he hadn't left.

  40. Carbonated Venom

    Okay tbh when i firt saw them puting on the gloves i expected motorcycles byt even better- SEGWAYS they can out run the police with top speeds of 1000 mph

  41. Righteous Fist

    That was totally deamau5 at the end wasn't it ?

  42. Alwyn Sam

    Good goddamn song..kinda fizzles out towards the end with the uninspired repetition of the chorus...it woulda been perfect around 3 minutes..

  43. Kyle Mundy

    3:56 deadmau5

  44. LanzEarthling

    Odd time signature riffs + godly wailing vocals = soundgarden... classic soundgarden.

  45. Aaron Doodles

    Sons of Anarchy Parody? hahahahaaha

  46. Darel James Delicana

    I miss Chris Cornell

  47. Luciene da COSTA PEREIRA

    I love their sense of humor.

  48. Jen Gable

    Great song ! Love it !

  49. Sarah Boller

    can't you see I understand you're mind???🤯🖤💋☠

  50. Jeff

    Sons of Anarchy inspired?

  51. Setzer Gabbiani

    Rest in peace, Chris, wherever you are. This clip was so funny, that I could forgot that is a song coming from a band with such intensity and weight in their lyrics, but coming out of usual is a good thing sometimes, of course. I would like to see more clips with this humor sense...

  52. Fernando Lopez

    Great song ! Soundgarden Forever !

  53. Ann Wilson

    this song and what's on the whole album is great.

  54. Adam Turner

    Right behind you !! ......👊❌

  55. Frodo Bäggins

    I'm addicted to feeling, stealing love isn't stealing

    I'm the shape of the hole inside your heart

    I don't care if you want to cry

    I'm a soldier for hire killing all you admire
    And you live in denial but that will change, hey

    Not looking for a brighter side
    Crooked steps will take me higher
    I don't care if you want to cry

    When blood is raining down, it cuts a deep deep river, yeah
    And we're diving, yeah, we're diving

    My crooked steps right behind you (Right behind you)
    My crooked steps right behind you (Right behind you)
    My crooked steps right behind you (Right behind you)
    My crooked steps right behind you (Right behind you)

    I'm a walking believer, I'm a ghost and a healer
    Can't you see that I understand your mind?
    Can't you see that I understand your mind?

    My crooked steps right behind you
    My crooked steps right behind you
    My crooked steps right behind you
    My crooked steps right behind you
    My crooked steps right behind you
    Right behind you, right behind you, right behind you
