"Heaven Beside You" as written by and Michael A. Inez Jerry Cantrell....
Be what you want to be
See what you came to see
Been what you want to be
I don't like what I see

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you, hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you, hell within

Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you, hell within
And you think you have it still, heaven inside you
So there's problems in your life

That's fucked up, and I'm not blind
I'm just see through faded, super jaded
And out of my mind
Do what you want to do

Go out and seek your truth
When I'm down and blue
Rather be me than you
Like the coldest winter chill

Heaven beside you, hell within
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you, hell within
Like the coldest winter will

Heaven beside you, hell within
And you wish you had it still, heaven inside you
So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up, and I'm not blind

I'm just see through faded, super jaded
And out of my mind
Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you, hell within

Like the coldest winter chill
Heaven beside you, hell within
Like the coldest winter will
Heaven beside you, hell within

And you know you have it still, heaven inside you
So there's problems in your life
That's fucked up, but you're not blind
You're just see through faded, overrated

And out of your mind

    General CommentI think it takes a level of maturity to listen to AIC. Also if you grew up in the seattle music scene like I did, AIC is a part of you whether you like it or not. I was never hooked on AIC until I saw Unplugged. If you actually see these guys perform, especially in unplugged, it absolutley cannot be denied. There is so much passion in every song, and I would honestly compare the enjoyment I get out of watching Staley and Cantrell to Page and Plant. Whether Heaven beside you is about a girl or whatever, its still the shit along with every other song AIC wrote. Pop is worthless and Britney can have her millions of fans. Any old corporate sponsored image with a recording studio and a thousand different machines can make a mindless pop album. It takes talent to make a real album. AIC is the epitome of talent, and I would take 50,000 fans who know that over millions who dont, ANY day.
