Chris Cornell
G 
The clouds that gathered turned to rain
G
The candles on your sill burned out
Am
The weather on your face
Em        C              G
Turned to match the mood outside
G
Reading through poems that you saved
G
That make the gloomy hours make sense
Am
Or do they lose their power
Em       C            G
With the yellowing of age

(Chorus)
C
I saw you suffering
G                             
Through a foggy window in the 
D
rain
                            Em
When you thought no one was watching, yeah
C                          
Going through your memories
G                       D
Like so many prisons to escape
                   Em
And become someone else
Am
With another face
C
And another name
G
No more suffering
G
You sold the best of yourself out
G
On a chain of grey and white lies
Am
One syllable at a time
Em                        C
You should have made them pay
        G
A higher price

(Chorus)
C
I saw you suffering
G                            
Through the cracked and dirty 
       D
window pane,

I was ashamed that I was 
Em
watching, yeah
C
Going through your imagination
G                            
Looking for a life you could 
D
create
                    Em
And become somebody else, yeah
Am
With another face
C
With another name
D
No more suffering

(strum)
Am                       C                
I wish that I could find a seed
C                              
And plant a tree that grows so high
G
So that I could climb

And harvest the ripe stars
Am
For you and I to drink
C
And spit the ashes from our mouths
Em
And put the grey back in the clouds

And send them packing with our bags
D
Of old regrets and sorrows

'Cause they don't do a thing but drag us down

So far down

(back to finger style)
G
The past is like a braided rope
G
Each moment tightly coiled inside
C
I saw you suffering
G                              
Through the yellow window of a 
D
train
D              Em
With everybody watching, yeah
C
Too tired for imagining 
G                                                                    
That you could ever love somebody 
D
else
D               Em
From somewhere far away
Am
From another time
C
From another place
Am
With another life
Em
And another face
D
And another name
D
And another name
G
No more suffering
