When I'm Down: Music & Lyrics by Chris Cornell




I have played this song for many a friend who did not know who it was, did not recognize the voice of Soundgarden, and each and every person fell in love with it, if you have not heard it then please lend us your ears....

What say you now
The door is opening
on your vigil
and I'm in my usual way 
I'll save my breath 
knowing what your wanting me to say
' I only love you when I'm down ' 

You say that midnight 
opens its song for me 
leaving you alone 
and then I fly so far away
Until the light blurs my vision
and I have nowhere to roam
I only love you when I'm down

and I only love you when I'm down
and I'm only near you when I'm gone 
But one thing for you to keep in mind, you know 
that I'm down, all the time
...all the time 

I know your reaching out
and you need to feel my hand 
you wana be loved 
yeah, well I understand 
I know you hold precious little hope for me 
and in your happiness
I'm always drowning in my grief

and I only love you when I'm down
and I'm only near you when I'm gone 
but one thing for you to keep in mind, you know
that I'm down 
...all the time...

* so precious and few are the touching Mustache ballads *
