Kiss Me When I'm Down

Album: Get Off on the Pain (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Allan discussed this song with The Boot: "I think that's every girls' favorite on the album. It's a break-up song, but it's human nature to go back to your comfort zone when you do break up with somebody and call them and try to get them to come over one more time. And that's what that song is about - trying to talk somebody back in just for a night. You don't think you want them back forever, but just come and kiss me when I'm down. I love that song."
