Rocktober 19, 2014 Would?

Would? is a song by the band Alice In Chains. It was written by guitarist/co-vocalist Jerry Cantrell in tribute to Andrew Wood, the late lead singer of Mother Love Bone (which later became Pearl Jam), who died of a heroin overdose in 1990. In the liner notes of 1999's Music Bank box set collection, Jerry Cantrell said of the song:
 "I was thinking a lot about Andrew Wood at the time. We always had a great time when we did hang out, much like Chris Cornell and I do. There was never really a serious moment or conversation, it was all fun. Andy was a hilarious guy, full of life and it was really sad to lose him. But I always hate people who judge the decisions others make. So it was also directed towards people who pass judgments."



Know me broken by my master
And teach thee on child of love hereafter

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Tried to see it once my way

Drifting body, its sole desertion
Flying not yet quite the notion

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Tried to see it once my way

Into the flood again
Same old trip it was back then
So I made a big mistake
Tried to see it once my way

And am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?
Left you here alone

And if I am wrong
Have I run too far to get home? Yeah
Have I gone?
Left you here alone?

If I would, could you?
