Say Hello 2 Heaven
Temple of the Dog Lyrics

Please, mother mercy
Take me from this place
And the long-winded curses
I hear in my head

The words never listen
And teachers, oh they never learn
My warmth from the candle
Though I feel too cold to burn

He came from an island
Then he died from the street
And he hurt so bad like a soul breakin'
But he never said nothin' to me, yeah

A'say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven
Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, yeah

New like a baby, lost like a prayer
The sky was your playground
But the cold girl was your bed

Ooh, I said, poor Stargazer
She's got no tears in her eyes
But fool like a whisper
She knows that love heals all wounds with time

Now it seem like too much love is
Never enough, yeah, you better
Seek out another road 'cause this one has ended abrupt, oh

Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven
Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, yeah

Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, oh oh

I, I never wanted
To write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases
Of things we'll never do

Yea, so I blow out, out the candle and I put you to bed
Since you can't say to me now
How the dog broke your bone
There's just one thing left to be said

Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven,
Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven,
Say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven, yeah
Say hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah yeah oh oh

In 1992 my wife was diagnosed as dying of cancer (<30% chance of survival). I listened to this song a lot, really loud, after going home from the hospital. It helped me. My wife lives and thrives to this day, and will probably outlive my sorry ass. I'm lucky to have met and helped her. And I'm lucky to have heard this song.

I know this comment is 6 years old but i think i speak for all of us when i ask for a status update on her. Hope all is still well for you folks and isnt it beautiful how music can bring strangers together like this? Much love 🙏 ❤

@Chris Simpson that's lingering, nagging thought also .. He acknowledged and expressed ,was open with what was going on, and that alone, usually keeps suicide , that wanting to END, FINALIZE.. at Bay... Then his children, He Glowed in pics with them, Vickie too , his wife,. They had BOND!! I had same Bond, soulmate, , my soulmate @ I were that couple, you could" Feel" depth of their Love!! It's great, my Soulmate Kyle, is gone too,. 3 months now, since Sept 10th 3:[email protected] Engraved in my mind forever...... As he is/ ALWAYS WILL BE,, HE'S IN MY HEART IN MY MIND WHERE HE BELONGS
