Chris Cornell

I'm not even really a Chris Cornell fan. Babe hates the song Black Hole Sun. Me and BFF always made fun of Spoon Man (I still sing it Fork Girl) and I hate Audioslave.

Still, I was so sad when I heard he died today and that he possibly killed himself. 

I think for a couple of reasons. One, me and Babe just saw him in November at the Temple of the Dog show and he was so good live. He was so rock and roll but also just rad in his cardigan. (that's the pic above, obviously). Also because like him or not his songs were a part of my everyday growing up. Like every day. 

Anyways, I hope he knows literally everyone my age and all the people in southern California at least are listening to his music today. 

Whatsoever I've feared has
Come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off
Became my life
Just when everyday
Seemed to greet
Me with a smile
Sunspots have faded
And now I'm doing time
Cause I fell on
Black days

Whomsoever I've cured
I've sickened now
Whomsoever I've cradled
I've put you down
I'm a search light soul
They say but I can't
See it in the night
I'm only faking
When I get it right
Cause I fell on
Black days
How would I know
That this could be my fate

So what you wanted to
See good has made you blind
And what you wanted to
Be yours has made it
So don't you lock up
Something that you
Wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No not tying

I sure don't
Mind a change
But I fell on black
How would I know
That this could be
My fate
