This isn’t just a cover song, this is a cover of Mother Love Bone. Mother Love Bone’s singer Andrew Wood died shortly before the release of their first album, and members of the band joined up with a couple of other guys to form Pearl Jam. It’s a haunting cover, to say the least.

The Lyrics

Chloe don’t know better
Chloe just like me, only beautiful
A couple of years of difference
But those lessons never learned
Chloe danced the tables in the french quarter
She always been given so I can’t always make her laugh
But I’m proud to say
And I won’t forget
Time spent laying by her side
Time spent laying by her side
And dreams like this must die
And dreams like this must die
And dreams like this must
You ever heard the story of Mr.Faded Glory?
Say he who rides a pony must someday fall
Been talkin’ to my alter
Say life is what you make it
And if you make it death well then rest your soul away
Away away yeah child
It’s a broken kind of feeling
She’d have to tie me to the ceiling
A bad moon’s a comin’ better say your prayers, child
I want to tell her that I love you
But does it really matter?
I just can’t stand to see you dragging down Again
Again
My baby again, oh, yeah
So I’m singing
And this is my kinda love
It’s the kind that moves on
It’s unkind and leaves me alone
Yes it does
And this is my kinda love
It’s the kind that moves on
It’s unkind that leaves me alone
I use to treat you like a lady
Now you’re a substitute teacher
This bottle’s not a pretty, not a pretty sight
I owe the man some money so I’m turnin’ over honey
You see Mr.Faded Glory is once again doin’ time, oh yeah
And this is my kinda love
It’s the kind that moves on
It’s the kind the leaves me alone
Yes, it does
And this is my kinda love
It’s the kind that moves on
It’s the kind that, it’s the kind that
It leaves me alone, yeah
Like a crown of thorns
It’s all who you know, yeah
So don’t burn your bridges woman
‘Cause someday, yeah
Kick it, oh yeah
And this is my kinda love
It’s the kind that moves on
It’s the kind that leaves me alone, yeah
This is my kinda love
It’s the kind that moves on
It’s the kind that, it’s the kind that, yeah, yeah
Baby
I said com’ on, com’ on, com’ on com’ on yeah
I said baby
Don’t burn your bridges, woman
Don’t come back here
I said good times, tu tu tu
Tu tu tu
I said tu tu tu
