Circling lyrics

Chris Cornell

  Printer Friendly Version

Night falls while drunken angels
Sleep by the side of the road
Now nodding in the stale world

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 call 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 the bloodless 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
