"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 CommentTo me this song is clearly about opiate use and the ups and downs of addiction. Right from the start, love and hate. He obviously loves the high he gets when first using., unfortunately he hates the "comedown' when he loses the intence sensation just as much...I also feel as though he is speaking directly to his heroin, which I found quite genious as far as song writing is concerned. Once he slleps the high fades and though I'm not certain, when he says "who was thereb to take your place, he may be referring to either attempting to reignite the high with either alcohol or another drug. In many cases herion is a very secretive addition due to stigma, sham, and fear. By stating "No one knows, never will. Mostly me mostly you", I again feel as though he is speaking directly to the heroin...One more feeling I get from rhe lyrics in Comedown is that this may have been referring to the first time he used, or in the very beginning of his use due to the lyrics, "took me all this time to find out what I need."...When it comes right down(no pun intended) to this song I think it's genious and find Gavin's words brilliant and very easy to relate to in my case.
