The Truest Fan
Feelings Broken
For Only Just Finding You
You possess
A Beautiful Power
A Haunting Voice
It Tears through my Soul

Hope you find Paradise
Divine Sweet Poet
Deep inside you
The Rock Legend
Whose Presence Passes
Like Melting Energy
Inside the Spirit

Your Voice
Touched by Angels
The Deepest Lyrics
Touched
By The Muse
Your Musical Gift
Shared with the World

More people are touched
By you than Imagined

Sad
My Heart
Hearing your Voice
Singing ‘The Promise’
You have left Too Soon

Yearning for You
But you’re gone
Inspiration
Your Gift
Giving to Souls
Who just listen
RIP Sweet Poet

Song Tribute | One More Life


Linkin Park | One More Light (Tribute To CHRIS CORNELL)

Chester Bennington dedicated this song to his friend Chris Cornell. Chester Bennington committed suicide on Chris Cornell’s birthday and just short of two months ago since Chris Cornell’s own suicide. They were best mates. I would say Chester Bennington just couldn’t go on without Chris Cornell.

I did a Tribute song for Chris Cornell a week ago to honor both of their sudden deaths. Two who died too young . too much pain.

One More Light
Sung by Chester Bennington & Linkin Park

Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out
In the sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out
If a moment is all we are
Or quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out
Well I do

The reminders, pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need, oh
And you’re angry, and you should be, it’s not fair
Just ’cause you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out
In the sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out
If a moment is all we are
Or quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out
Well I do

Who cares if one more light goes out
In the sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out
If a moment is all we are
Or quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out
Well I do
Well I do

Song Tribute | The Promise


Chris Cornell | “The Promise”

Chris Cornell a close mate to Chester Bennington who committed suicide on Chris Cornell’s birthday and just short of two months since Chris Cornell’s own suicide. This song will give you a sense of the depth of his soul.

I am playing this Tribute song for Chester Bennington. Next week I continue to honor both their sudden deaths. Two who died too young . too much pain. RIP

The Promise
Sung by Chris Cornell

If I had nothing to my name
But photographs of you
Rescued from the flames
That is all I would ever need
As long as I can read
What’s written on your face
The strength that shines
Behind your eyes
The hope and light
That will never die

And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
As we’ve always done

And you said
“The poison in a kiss
Is the lie upon the lips”
Truer words were never shared
When I feel
Like lies are all I hear
I pull my memories near
The one thing they can’t take

And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
As we’ve always done

The books still open on the table
The bells still ringing in the air
The dreams still clinging to the pillow
The songs still singing in a prayer

Now my soul
Is stretching through the roots
To memories of you
Back through time and space
To carry home
The faces and the names
And these photographs of you
Rescued from the flames

And one promise you made
One promise that always remains
No matter the price
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
And dare to rise once more
A promise to survive
Persevere and thrive
And fill the world with life
As we’ve always done
