follow my way lyrics – chris cornell

little one don’t be a fool,
i’m a wreck when i look mighty.
in euphoria i’m bruised,
in confusion next i’m lightning.
in complacence i am small,
through oblivion i’m charged.

[chorus]
so follow my way,
when i’m not leading anyone.
open and frayed,
when you can see that i’m unsure.
out on my way,
i’m only pure when i get lost,
and you’re only needing when you’re finding that i’m not…

you’re just looking for a boy,
bathed in infrared and sunlight.
i’m all polish and reward,
when i’m confidant i hopeless.
just like everybody else,
right before they fall apart.

[chorus, different from the 1st]
so follow my way,
when i am falling from your heart.
when i’m the pain,
fever and sweet relief in one.
out on my way,
though i’m not worthy of your trust.
follow me down into a swan dive,
all eyes closed tight…

[bridge]
lowly, slowly, now i know i love where you go when you’re gone…
warm your hands inside my veins,
i might be contagious,
through oblivion i charge.

[chorus]
so follow my my way,
when i am useless to your cause.
when i derail,
calm in the patience of remorse.
out on my way,
out on my empty open nerves.
when all you know is that i don’t know where we are.
when all you know is that i don’t know,
follow my way…
