"When I'm Down" is a pre-album recording for the upcoming album "Hearts & Sciences" out in 2016


When I'm down, when I'm down
How come no one's around,
When I'm high, when I'm light
Then they show up

When I'm gone, when I'm gone
We won't know right from wrong,
But if we open up our hearts then they will come

When I'm gone, when I'm gone
We won't know right from wrong,
But if I open up my heart then you will come
And if we open up our hearts then they will come
And if you open you heart then I will come

So when we're down
And we get down
It will come back around
In the end I'll be there to pick you up
