This song. Fuck – this song. Always hits me right in the gut.
When I was 17 years old, a guy I was dating someone – we were serious – and then someone convinced him he shouldn’t be serious given he was a year older than me. Things ended – and this song which was just in the background become a different beast.
I went from loving it to hating it.
Chris Cornell is now beyond the veil. By his hand or by the universes. Doesn’t matter. A prominent person in my life -in my late teen, early 20s, is gone. A prominent part of the Seattle grunge scene. I hate that honestly – hate it for many reasons. Not them – the situation.
And I love and hate this song. Still and always.
Because nothing compares to you –
