Like A Stone Lyrics

On a cold wet afternoon
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages

Of a book full of death
Reading how we'll die alone
And if we're good we'll lay to rest
Anywhere we want to go

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there like a stone
I'll wait for you there alone

And on my deathbed I will pray
To the Gods and the Angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to Heaven

To a place I recall
I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised
The wine was bled
And there you lead me on

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there like a stone
I'll wait for you there alone, alone

And on I read
Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret
Of all the things I've done

For all that I've blessed
And all that I've wronged
In dreams until my death
I will wonder on

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there like a stone
I'll wait for you there alone, alone

Hes talking about being fooled by religion and wanting something that was really never there...and it making him feel guilty for nothing. he just wishes it was true but its not and he realizes that.

Phenomenal song. I love how the song as a whole has one big meaning, but each verse, the chorus, the bridge, everything can have it's independent meaning as you go through different crap in your life.

I heard that this song was inspired by the death of Chris' friend, Lane Staley. He was the singer for Alice in Chains. After reading it, it makes sense. Beautiful!

I LOVE this song. It has so many possible interpretations. Personally, I think it's about longing for your lost love at the end of your life.
