Through the Window  Chris Cornell

The clouds that [G]gathered turned to rain
[G]The candles on your sill burned out
[Am]The weather on your face
[Em]Turned to [C]match the mood [G]outside
[G]Reading through poems that you saved
[G]That make the gloomy hours make sense
[Am]Or do they lose their power
[Em]With the [C]yellowing of [G]age
[C]I saw you suffering
[G]Through a foggy window in the
When you thought no one was [Em]watching, yeah
[C]Going through your memories
[G]Like so many prisons to [D]escape
And become someone [Em]else
[Am]With another face
[C]And another name
[G]No more suffering
[G]You sold the best of yourself out
[G]On a chain of grey and white lies
[Am]One syllable at a time
[Em]You should have made them [C]pay
A higher[G] price
[C]I saw you suffering
[G]Through the cracked and dirty
window [D]pane,
I was ashamed that I was
[Em]watching, yeah
[C]Going through your imagination
[G]Looking for a life you could
And become somebody [Em]else, yeah
[Am]With another face
[C]With another name
[D]No more suffering
[Am]I wish that I could find [C]a seed
[C]And plant a tree that grows so high
[G]So that I could climb
And harvest the ripe stars
[Am]For you and I to drink
[C]And spit the ashes from our mouths
[Em]And put the grey back in the clouds
And send them packing with our bags
[D]Of old regrets and sorrows
'Cause they don't do a thing but drag us down
So far down
(back to finger style)
[G]The past is like a braided rope
[G]Each moment tightly coiled inside
[C]I saw you suffering
[G]Through the yellow window of a
[D]With everybody [Em]watching, yeah
[C]Too tired for imagining
[G]That you could ever love somebody
[D]From somewhere f[Em]ar away
[Am]From another time
[C]From another place
[Am]With another life
[Em]And another face
[D]And another name
[D]And another name
[G]No more suffering
