Chords. standard except the following.
(G*)Flipped into the wind like the ashes of her
He got (D)scattered and thin on the breeze as he tried
He lost all his heat and his heart never will be the
(C/Cbass) same. (passing Bbass to Am)
He got (D)lighter than air but he'll only come down in
Strung out and hung out to dry laughing under the
It's not such a dignified place but he really don't
He says with his feet on the ground he'd have nothing
Claims he likes it up there but he'll only come down
in the rain.
Comin down in the (Em)rain,
Washing out of the (C)sky,
Loaded down with that (Am) pain.
There's just no way to (D) fly.
You can (G*) read him as clear as the wall
Where he once wrote his (C/Cbass) name (passing Bbass
It was (D) right next to hers
But it'll only come down in the (G*) rain
Burning himself out on a limb like a leaf in the fall,
He blazed for a while now he's feeling all dried up
The colour's all gone, disappeared near as quick as it
He says he can stay up but he'll only come down in the
You can read him as clear as the wall
Where he once wrote his name.
It was inside a heart
That'll only come down in the rain.
