Black
Pearl Jam Lyrics


Hey, oh
Sheets of empty canvas
Untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me
As her body once did
All five horizons
Revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed
Has taken a turn

Oh and all I taught her was everything
Oh I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands
Chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything
Oh the pictures have
All been washed in black
Tattooed everything
I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by
Some kids at play
I can feel their laughter
So why do I sear
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin
Round my head
I'm spinning
Oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can, drop away

And now my bitter hands
Cradle broken glass
Of what was everything
All the pictures had
All been washed in black
Tattooed everything
All the love gone bad
Turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see
All that I am
All I'll be

Yeah
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky
But why
Why
Why can't it be
Why can't it be mine

And now my bitter hands
Cradle broken glass
Of what was everything
All the pictures have
All been washed in black
Tattooed everything
All the love gone bad
Turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see
All that I am
All that I'll be, yeah
Uh huh, uh huh, oh

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky
But why
Why
Why can't it be
Oh can't it be mine

Lyrics

Hey...
Ooh...

Sheets of empty canvas,
Untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before
Me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved
Around her soul as the
Earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and
Breathed has taken a turn

Ooh,
And all I taught
Her was everything
Ooh,
I know she gave me
All that she wore

And now my bitter hands
Chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything.
Oh,
The pictures have
All been washed in black,
Tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside,
I'm surrounded by
Some kids at play
I can feel their laughter,
So why do I sear?

Oh,
And twisted
Thoughts that spin
Round my head,
I'm spinning,
Oh,
I'm spinning,
How quick the sun
Can drop away

And now my bitter hands
Cradle broken glass
Of what was everything
All the pictures have
All been washed in black,
Tattooed everything...
All the love gone bad
Turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see,
All that I am,
All I'll be...
Yeah...

Uh huh...
Uh huh...
Ooh...

I know someday
You'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a sun
In somebody else's sky,
But
Why,
Why,
Why can't it be,
Why can't it be mine?

Aah...
Uh..
Yeah
Oh

Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo
Too doo doo too, too doo doo

Yeah
Yeah

It’s crazy how this song starts off chill and seemingly normal, but by the end of it, you’re crying your eyes out and questioning every relationship you’ve ever had with another human being...

Alan Glass

God, is that really you?

Chiestnick

funny for you to assume ive ever had a relationship with another human being

15 years ago my best friend committed suicide. In that space of time his dad and I became close. Today i found out covid killed his dad. All I could hear in my head was this song. :'(
