Sweet Sunshower by Chris Cornell – this is a great song. Or we think it is, anyway, which is all that counts really…after all, this is our blog!

Sweet Sunshower came to us from the album Euphoria Morning, which Cornell recorded with songwriter Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider (of the band Eleven) in 1999. It was his first solo album, his only work between Soundgarden and Audioslave, and was originally supposed to be called Euphoria Mourning, but a typo screwed it up.

Take a listen.

Sweet Sunshower Lyrics

Dark as roses, fine as sand

Feel your healing and your sting again

I 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 its all right

When you’re caught in pain

And you feel the rain come down

Its all right

When you find your way

Then you see it disappear

Its all right

Though your gardens grey

I know all your graces

Someday will flower

In the 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 its all right

When you’re all in pain

And you feel the rain come down

Oh its all right

When you find your way

Then you see it disappear

Oh its all right

Though your gardens gray

I know all your graces

Someday will flower

Oh in the sweet sunshower

Oh in the sweet sunshower

In the sweet sunshower

I know all your graces

Someday will flower

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…
