"Comedown" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
Love and hate, get it wrong
She cut me right back down to size
Sleep the day, let it fade
Who was there to take your place
No one knows, never will
Mostly me, but mostly you
What do you say, do you do
When it all comes down

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need yeah

I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this, all this time

There is no blame only shame
When you beg you just complain
The more I come, more I try
All police are paranoid
So am I, so's the future
So are you, be a creature
What do you say do you do when it all comes down

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need, yeah yeah yeah

I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this, all this time

Love and hate, get it wrong
She cut me right back down to size
Sleep the day, let it fade
Who was there to take your place
No one knows, never will
Mostly me, but mostly you
What do you say, do you do
When it all comes down

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need, yeah yeah yeah

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this, all this time

Come down
I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud, this cloud, this cloud
This cloud, this cloud, this cloud, this cloud
This cloud, this cloud

    General CommentHonestly, i always thought this song was about drug addiction. I was always sketchy cause it didnt seem like Gavin would be the type to be addicted to anything. Anyway, to me it sounds like the "you"s and "she"s are actually refering to the drug.

    "sleep the day let it fade" (sleeping to escape withdrawl)
    "Who was there to take your place" (need of some drug)

    Just an example. So maybe im completely wrong but this idea works for me and im sticking to it.

    BUSH ROCKS.

    General CommentTo me this song is about love AND getting your life sorted out

    " And I dont wanna come back down from this cloud, its taken me all this time to find out what I need"

    Its like he fell in love with someone that helped him fix everything in his life and hes finally happy and doesnt want to come dowm from the cloud hes on, or go back to his old ways,
    Maybe im insane. W.e

    General CommentHow awesome is Bush? I mean seriously they have to be one of the best bands to come out of the 90's. I absolutely love them.. and this song is just awesome. Amazing. The writing, the lyrics, the cords, the tone, Gavin.. Bush at their best.

    General Commenti love this song, You can actually feel the emotion. It's very real compared to like a pop song or something. It just talks about how great it feels to be with someone you love, and how you never want to feel any different.

    General CommentThis song probably is about love. But it also could be about something else. Like just feeling good life itself. Going through a tough time and then it all gets better and you find a cloud (or something like that) and life's good, and you never want it to stop.

    General CommentThis song to me is about being deeply hurt. Just like, when you are on a "high" in life (the cloud) and somehow it gets taken away. But it's really depressing how he takes things that would be in "pop" songs like blame, and says "there is no blame only shame, when you beg you just complain". He doesn't even want her to beg in my eyes, because it seems like, maybe it annoys him... "ashley007" I agree that people need to make more comments! :) I love knowing how people interpret songs.

    General CommentI think its more about happiness in life rather than love. when he says "I don't wanna come down from this cloud, its taken me all this time" hes saying he's finally happy and even though it took him a long time to get to be happy, its worth it. Its definately one of Bush's best songs, maybe Swollowed or Glycerine or better but this band is really amazing

    General CommentThis is a kick ass song. it sounds as if he wrote it after having sex (since he doesn't want to "come down"). I love Bush and Gavin is so cute.Or he could be talkin about coming down from smokin weed. Hey, you never know with rock bands. seriously, I love this song. I think it's about enjoying life and he doesn't want to stop having fun.
