Euphoria Morning

A tribute to Chris. I woke up and it all came flooding back. I learned this song maybe 15 years ago, when I was trying to find my own voice. I remember being struck by the sadness of this one, and the stark difference between it and the impossible high notes and fury of Soundgarden. The album Euphoria Morning in all it's strangeness made a lasting impression on me as a young songwriter. I knew every word and tried (and failed) to hit every note. I learned so much from this man, and it's difficult to believe this is the way it went down. I suppose it's rarely neat and tidy, our passing on. Rest In Peace, Chris. I wish I would have had the chance to tell you how much you meant to me. Thank you for your music. <3

Sweet euphoria, mine is the heart you own
You lost the grace of the hands that harmed you
In the daze of a thousand yawns
Lost my love, as it is I'm truly gone

In your morning I will sleep
Fire on an open palm
Death for Jesus and plastic armies
Wouldn't bring me back again
Sweet as ether eyes I'm blind to them

Gone are your dandelions, falling like mine
Falling on land mine pillows
Tired angels
Save my love for the lasting one

Sweet euphoria, mine is the heart you stole
Touched and broken are the things you love
Using stars to light your candles
Warms my face, but I can't remember yours

Gone are you dandelions, falling like mine
Falling like daydream mangos
Diving swallows
Save my love for the lasting one

Sweet Euphoria...
