"Sweet Euphoria" as written by and Chris Cornell....
Sweet euphoria, mine is the heart you own
You lost the grace of the hands that harmed you
In the daze of a thousand yawns
Lost my love, as it is I'm truly gone
In you morning I will sleep
Fire on an open palm
Death for Jesus and plastic armies
Wouldn't bring me back again
Sweet as ether eyes I'm blind to them

Gone are your dandelions, falling like mine
Falling on land-mine pillows
Tired angels save my love for the lasting one

Sweet euphoria, mine is the heart you stole
Touched and broken are the things you love
Using stars to light your candles
Warms my face, but I can't remember yours
Gone are you dandelions, falling like mine
Falling like daydream mangos
Diving swallows
Save my love for the lasting one

    General CommentAmazingly brilliant song. The emphasis of him finally doing his trademark 'belt it out' thing on the last "Save my love" is devastating.

    When you think you've found someone, have dealt with them, and are realizing that it's just not going to be, you must realize that you should save your strongest love for the 'lasting one'.

    General CommentI'd say this is my Chris Cornell song outisde of Soundgarden. It feels very melancholy while at the same time being happy and wistful at the same time.

    My InterpretationIt's quite obvious this song is about heroin addiction. "using stars to light your candles", I think refers to bandmates lighting candles that are used to light a heroin spoon.
