"Coming Down Again" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
Coming down again, coming down again
Coming down again, coming down again

Share your thoughts, there's nothing you can hide
She was dying to survive
I was caught, oh, taken for a ride
She was showing no surprise

Coming down again, coming down again
Where are all my friends, coming down again

Coming down again, coming down again
On the ground again, coming down again

Slipped my tongue in someone else's pie
Tasting better ev'ry time
She turned green and tried to make me cry
Being hungry it ain't no crime

Coming down again, coming down again
All my time's been spent, coming down again

    General CommentNow this one IS about heroin. So many idiots on here want to say every song by any band that ever did heroin is about heroin, then they ignore the ones that really are. This is during Keith's heaviest smack period. A haunting reminder of what life was for him at the time. I like it a lot.

    General CommentLovely backing vocals from Mick and a heartbreaking moment for Keith as he finally displays some vulnerability and admits his problems with smack. One of the better moments on the otherwise lukewarm Goats Head Soup.

    General Commentwow, just broke out this cd today for the first time in a while... it is such a well done tune, i love taylor's background wah. to me the lyrics are mainly about drug use with romantic overtones of richard's woo-ing anita pallenberg from jones. the lyrics go "he turned green..", NOT "she", and i believe "he"=brian jones.

    General CommentHit me immediately as a dope song; "comin' down again" with that sad "well here we go, party's over and here comes the pain of hangin' again, time after time. But I'm an old ex-junkie so of course I'd read it that way. I realise there are the messin' with your mate's wife feelings in there too but hey,.. it's rock and roll and it means what you wish it to be, written by one of the masters of the art.
