Inserting my ‘song of the week’ Chris Cornell – When I’m Down – Troubadour, January 29 2010

When I’m Down – Chris Cornell

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 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

“Show Me How To Live”

And with the early dawn

Moving right along, I couldn’t buy an eye-full of sleep

And in the aching night under satellites, I was not received

Built with stolen parts, a telephone in my heart, someone get me a priest to put my mind to bed

This ringing in my head, is this a cure or is this a disease?

 

Nail in my head, from my creator

You gave me life, now show me how to live

Nail in my head, from my creator

You gave me life, now show me how to live

 

And in the after birth, on the quiet earth, let the stains remind you, you thought you made a man

You better think again, before my role defines you

 

Nail in my head, from my creator

You gave me life, now show me how to live

Nail in my head, from my creator

You gave me life, now show me how to live

And in your waiting hands, I will land, and roll out of my skin

And in your final hours I will stand, ready to begin?

Ready to begin? ready to begin? ready to begin?

 

Nail in my head, from my creator

You gave me life, now show me how to live

Nail in my head, from my creator

You gave me life, now show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live

 

In My Time Of Dying – Led Zeppelin (partial lyrics from the last song Chris sung)

 

In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn

All I want for you to do is take my body home

 

Well, well, well, so I can die easy

Jesus, going to make up

 

Jesus, going to make up my dying bed

Meet me, Jesus, meet me

Meet me in the middle of the air

If my wings should fail me, Lord

Please meet me with another pair

 

Well, well, well, so I can die easy

Jesus, going to make up

 

Somebody, somebody

Jesus going to make up

Jesus going to make you my dying bed

Well, well, well, so I can die easy

Jesus, going to make up

Somebody, somebody

Jesus going to make up

Jesus going to make you my dying bed
