“Now You’re Just Gonna Have To Take It…”

That’s a line from Chris Cornell’s new song, “Arms Around Your Love”. Saw the video for the song on MTV one afternoon, then after hearing it quickly went on my IRC and downloaded it. Couldn’t stop playing the song eversince.

Never really listened to Soundgarden. I first heard him on the soundtrack of Great Expectations, which looking back now was probably one of the defining albums of my alternative phase, back in the late ’90s. His song “Sunshower”, together with “Life in Mono” (Mono) and “Wishful Thinking” (Duncan Sheik) were anthems to me back then (sigh). Haha. Didn’t hear anything from him after that until he was with Audioslave. That’s when I became more familiar and got to appreciate his songwriting chops better courtesy of their hits “Be Yourself” and “Like a Stone”. Now he’s back as a solo and this new song ish da sh*t! You guys really have to listen to it. Really good. This one’s about lost love and regrets. Nyahaa.. quite depressing. Love it. Hehe.

Chris Cornell’s “Carry On”

“Arms Around Your Love” [Chris Cornell]

With his arms around your love
Oh no, here comes the pain that you can’t ignore /
With his arms around your girl
He’ll do all of the things you didn’t do before /
You had every chance, but you closed the door..

* Now you’re just gonna have to take it
(Cause if you didn’t know)
She’s gonna make you pay for it
(At a price you can’t afford)
You’re just gonna have to take it
With his arms around your love [x3]

Pretend that you don’t mind
But you know everything that you left behind /
And it would have been alright
If you’d gave half of the praise that you held inside /
You thought she’d hang around for the ride…

[repeat *]

Coming clean feels so dangerous
Just a little bit would have been enough
But you never said all the words caught in your head /
As if your heart was dead
Well now its surely bled and broken up

And it would have been alright
If you’d gave half of the praise that you held inside /
You thought she’d hang around for the ride…

[repeat *]
