​When I'm Down

This song is by Chris Cornell and appears on the album Euphoria Morning (1999).

What say you now, the door is opening
On your vigil and I'm in my usual way
I save my breath, knowing what you're
Wanting me to say, I only love you when I'm down

You say that midnight opens its arms to 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
I'm down all the time

Well I know you're reaching out and you need to feel my hand
You want to be understood, 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
I'm down all the time
All the time, all the time, all the time
