Okay, what's going on here?! I had to add this song, which I think is Chris Cornell at his (vintage, maybe : ) songwriting best... & despite the 'depressing' sounding title, the song is absolutely gorgeous, and though it's from the "Superunknown" cd, it's even more stunning when Chris performs it live acoustically...aaahhhh!!!!
