(Buddy Mondlock)

Flipped into the wind
Like the ashes of her cigarette
He got scattered thrown on the breeze
As he tried to forget
He lost all his heat
And his heart will never be the same
He got lighter than air
But he'll only come down in the rain

Strung out and hung out to dry
Laughin' under the line
It's not such a digified place
But he really don't mind
He says with his feet on the ground
He'd had nothin' to gain
Claims he likes it up there
And he'll only come down in the rain

Chorus
Comin' down in the rain
Washin' outta the sky
Loaded down with the pain
There ain't just no way to fly
You can read him as clear
As the wall where he once wrote his name
It was right next to hers
But it'll only come down in the rain

Burnin' himself out on a limb
Like a leaf in the fall
He blazed for awhile
Now he's feelin' all dried up and small
The colors all gone
Disappeared, near as quick as it came
He says he can't stay up
But, but he'll only come down in the rain

Chorus

You can read him clear as the wall
Where he once wrote his name
It was right next to hers
But he'll only come down in the rain
