about

Here is my humble cover of "Fell on Black Days" by Soundgarden. Chris Cornell was important to me as an artist and this song in particular was very special to me growing up.

I made an iPhone video of this cover as a tribute to him the day he died, and people really responded to it. It got about 4,000 views and dozens of shares. The outpouring of positive responses was heartwarming and amazing. So, I decided to do a proper recording.

All proceeds from this cover will go towards my upcoming Album Release/Birthday Show at the Cafe du Nord Show on 8/25 to cover the cost of treats, decorations and paying the support bands and my own musicians.

Thank you and enjoy!

lyrics

FELL ON BLACK DAYS

Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots are faded, now I'm doing time
Now I'm doing time

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I've cured, I've sickened now
And whomsoever I've cradled, I've put you down
Search light soul they say
But I can't see it in the night
I'm only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

What you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don't you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don't mind a change

'Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days
