"Fire Escape" as written by and Miles Zuniga....
Well, I don't wanna be President, Superman, or Clark Kent
I don't wanna walk around in their shoes
'Cause I don't know whose side I'm on
I don't know my right from wrong
I don't know where I'm goin' to
I don't know about you
I'll be the rain falling on your fire escape
And I may not be the man you want me to
I can be myself, how 'bout you?
I don't wanna make you mad
I don't wanna meet your dad
I don't wanna be your dream come true
'Cause I don't know just what I've found
I don't know my sky from ground
I don't know where I'm goin' toI don't know about you
I'll be the rain falling on your fire escape
And I may not be the man you want me to
I can be myself, how 'bout you?
I'll be the rain falling on your fire escape
And I may not be the man you want me to
I can be myself, how 'bout you?
I can be myself, how 'bout you?
I can be myself, how 'bout you?

    General CommentOk I think the line 'I'll be the rain falling on your fire escape' isn't exactly saying he'll be there for her. A fire escape are those things in apartment buildings that look like little porches with tons of stairs, usually beside brick or concrete walls, and usually made our of some sort of metal. Rain on metal=uber slippery. He's warning her that he won't live up to everything she may be expecting, and her grandeur ideas of what love should be, he may even end up hurting her (being the rain on her fire escape), but he's willing to give it a shot anyway, if she's willing to accept reality.
