Music Monday : Like a Stone by Audioslave

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday. I have really been enjoying the songs that Drew and everyone else has been sharing.  I love books but music is another passion of mine and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to join in.  I love almost all genres of music, and it’s not unheard of for me to have Kenny Rogers, Ozzy Osbourne, and Eminem on the same playlist.

The song I have chosen to share this week is “Like a Stone” by Audioslave.  It was the second single from their debut album Audioslave and was released January 2003. Sadly the band’s singer and songwriter, Chris Cornell passed away May 18, 2017. His death was ruled a suicide. Such an amazingly talented man, gone WAY too soon.

I love the acoustic version of this song but the guitar solo (starts at 2:56) in this version always stops me in my tracks.

 

“Like A Stone”

On a cobweb afternoon,
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages of a book full of death;
Reading how we’ll die alone.
And if we’re good we’ll lay to rest,
Anywhere we wanna go.In your house I long to be;
Room by room patiently,
I’ll wait for you there like a stone.
I’ll wait for you there alone.

And on my deathbed I will pray to the gods and the angels,
Like a pagan to anyone who will take me to heaven;
To a place I recall, I was there so long ago.
The sky was bruised, the wine was bled, and there you led me on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I’ll wait for you there like a stone.
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone.

And on I read until the day was gone;
And I sat in regret of all the things I’ve done;
For all that I’ve blessed, and all that I’ve wronged.
In dreams until my death I will wander on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I’ll wait for you there like a stone.
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone.
