Temple Of The Dog “Say Hello 2 Heaven” 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, all that never learn
Now warmth from the candle
But 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 breaking
But he never said nothing to me, yeah

So 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 ground was your bed

Oh, so, poor Stargazer
She’s got no tears in her eyes
But smooth like a whisper
She knows that love heals all wounds with time

Now it seems 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”
Say, “Hello to heaven, heaven, heaven”

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

Hey, 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, to heaven, yeah”
Say, “Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah”
Say, “Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah”
Say, “Hello to heaven, to heaven, yeah”

Temple Of The Dog have shared an alternate mix of “Say Hello 2 Heaven” which will be included on their upcoming deluxe edition release. Listen to it above, courtesy of the group’s YouTube.

The most noticeable difference between this version and the version on their 1991 album is the absence of drums. With that out of the mix, the track has a more intimate feel, allowing Chris Cornell’s amazing vocals to soar and feel more personal.

Pick up the deluxe edition of Temple Of The Dog’s 1991 self-titled album on Amazon. It’s scheduled to be released on September 30, 2016. The band has also shared a demo version of the track “Black Cat” and a remastered version of “Hunger Strike.”

Tickets are currently on sale for Temple Of The Dog’s first ever arena tour, which kicks off November 4.
