"Somewhere" as written by Max Gronenthal, Andrew David Kastner and Larry John Mcnally....
I wish a wish I dream to dream
I try to try and I live to live
And die to die and I cry to cry
But I know why

I wish to wish and I dream to dream
I try to try and I live to live
But die to die and I cry to cry
But I know why

Somewhere in my dreams
Are those who should
Still the willow weeps
On roses for the dead
In laughs of love

From the likes of her
To time of me
Like to moon to earth
And the sky to sea
?Only were no longer
Allowed to be, to be

Somewhere in the dreams
Things that should
Live in all the keeps
Echo all the worlds
In laughs of love

For times that pass my life
I'll search for the sky
That she wonders by

Somewhere in the dreams
Skies hold
Still the willow weeps
On roses for her bed
In laughs of love

Somewhere in the dreams
Skies hold
Still the willow weeps
On roses for her bed
In laughs of love

    General Commentyeah it is probably about this girlfriend he used to have and still loves but he went over to her house at 4 in the morning one time and her parents called the cops on him and his friend and told them never to come back to warrenton or you will be arrested and sent to jail

    General CommentI don't seem to get what he means with:
    "Still the willow weeps
    On roses for the dead
    In laughs of love"
    Is love here being his love for a girl or love in general (and if it's love in general-are that laughs cynical or sort of when you smile through tears?)

    General Commenti think i hate this song the most out of all the soundgarden songs. chris didnt write it. some other foo did. soundgardens cool, and this is arguably the worst song on badmotorfinger. ok ill give a shot at what its about... dreaming about things and living in a fantasy world thats all good while the real life sucks. sounds like me kind of. fantasizing is all fun and games until... you wake up.

    General CommentWally the Walrus, it may be the worst song on Badmotorfinger, but since every song on Badmotorfinger is an instant classic, that's not really a bad thing, is it?

    I think it is about mourning over a dead lover.

    "I'll search for the sky/ That she wanders by".

    He can't get over the loss of his loved one.

    General CommentThis is definitely one of my favorite songs but it might be my favorite song ever and might be the only song that could hold that title for me. All hail Ben Shepherd!

    General Commenthmm i disagree with u all about this arguably being the worst song on badmotorfinger...the lyrics could be better but the vocals, guitar, bass, drums...its all there and I find it very catchy. I'd put it at 5th favorite on the album behind Outshined, Rusty Cage, Searching With My Good Eye Closed, and Slaves and Bulldozers.

    General CommentI love that all members contributed to the songwriting!
    The first line is as if he knows his purpose, and it's to find a soulmate. Keep on searching...
