"Sunshower" as written by and Chris Cornell....
Dark as roses and fine as sand
Fell your healing and your sting again
Hear you laughing and my soul is saved
On forgotten graves you cry

Crawl like ivy up my spine
Through my nerves and into my eyes
Cuts like anguish or recollections
Of better days gone by

But it's all right
When you're all in pain
And you feel the rain come down
Oh it's all right
When you find you way
Then you see it disappear
Oh it's all right
Though your garden's gray
I know all your graces
Someday will flower
Oh oh in a sweet sunshower
In a sweet sunshower

Eyes like oceans so far away
A feather trail to a better way
Worried mornings turn into days
Then into worried nights
But it's all right

When you're all in pain
And you feel the rain come down
Oh it's all right
When you find you way
Then you see it disappear
It's all right
Though your garden's gray
I know all your graces
Someday will flower
Oh oh in a sweet sunshower
Oh in a sweet sunshower

In the sweet sunshower
In the sweet
Sweet
Sweet
Sunshower

Oh oh oh
I know all your graces
Someday will flower
In the sweet
In the sweet sunshower
And its all right
All you'll be you are today
Are today
Its all right
All you'll be you are today
Are today
Are today
Are today
Are today
Are today

    General CommentI've grown up to Chris Cornell, pretty much my entire life. I've loved this man since I could speak. Every song touches my heart in everyway. I lost my Dad four years ago, and Chris has worked wonders in helping me deal with all of that. This song touches my heart, and I hope it touches everyone elses as well. His voice is his own, and there will never be another Chris Cornell!

    General Commentthis is a great, song, i dont think its his best but i will say its one of them. At least top 3. Chris cornell has such a distiguishable style he sounds so unique in his own little way and this song is the epitome of that style.

    General CommentThis song, I think, is one of the most well written in a long time. The figurative language is phenomenal. I think this song is about Chris's significant other going through a tough time, maybe a death, or depression of some kind and him trying to comfort and them and give them hope.

    General CommentOh, in the sweet sunshower

    In the sweet sunshower

    I know all your graces
    someday will flower
    In that sweet
    In the sweet sunshower

    And it's alright--
    All you'll be, you are today
    Are today
    It's alright
    All you'll be you are today
    Are today... are today... are today... are today...

    -- The instrumentals of this climax part makes me feel euphoric, like I'm flying...
    It's so faithful and caring, and without urging to evade suffering, conveys that there's always room for us to grow, to ascend, that we can be strong and transcend grief or desperation.

    General CommentThe climax part makes me feel like I'm flying..
    I think that we really need to suffer in life. Such an intense state makes me feel raw and alive, and having transcended grief and desperation is euphoric.

    General Commentchris is such an compelling musician. he is way above anyother. it is sad that society is so ignorant in this day and age. he should be placed opon a throne to let everyone know how magnificant he is.
