Comedown

Lyrics

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 mostly you
what do you say, do you do
when it all comes down

’cause i don’t want to 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
more i come more i try
all police are (fuckin’) 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 want to come back down from this cloud
it’s taken me all this
all this time

shoot up
shoot up
shoot up
you’re high

love and hate get it wrong
she cut/(fuck’d) 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 want to 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 time
all this time

why did you
why did you
why did you
why did you
why did you
why did you
why did you
why did you
why did you
comedown

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
this cloud

About The Song

Band Thoughts:

‘I can remember sitting there writing this song.I know exactly where I sat in my bedroom and everything. It’s about Suze [DeMarchi], who I was seeing then. And writing it was just like unlocking a door. It was the first time I’d written a song on my own. And it was just like..a dream state. A really quick song to write; the kind where you tap into some kind of creative flow. It’s really cinematic to me and when I look at it now and read it, that’s exactly how I wrote it. I didn’t change one word. It’s weird. Yeah, it’s all that….paranoia about the future. About feeling weird. I suppose it’s my first low self-esteem workout. It’s funny; I’ve always managed to get myself in situations where things just don’t seem to work out that easily. That was a scary time, that was an awful time. There I was, with nothing. And I can see that’s why it just flows. It seems so vulnerable to me, as if that intense happiness we all long to feel is so temporary. The verse is much more pensive and introspective and it’s about the time when I was away from everyone, whereas in the chorus you can feel the release; the power of taking solace in the good things and finding all the positive things. And it just fitted having that Billy Cobham bassline, which made it groovy and to me totally unrock. That was the first song I demoed and first song I played to Dave.’- Gavin

‘When I wrote ‘Comedown’ I thought, my God, what have I done?’- Gavin

“Comedown was the first song i ever wrote on my own so it has a special place in my heart because it gave me the confidence to continue.”- Gavin

“‘Comedown’ was probably my finest hour. I pinched a little bit from Billy Cobham, and we nicked the bass line and drum groove from a song by a group called Massive Attack. My favorite way of making grooves is to listen to something I really like once and then go off from there. By the time you’ve played it and played it you find you’ve completely changed what you originally started with.” – Robin

Interviewer: Gavin, when you wrote Come Down, was it a reflection of your state of mind at the time?

– ‘Yeah, definitely. I’ve been there, experienced those emotions. The weird thing about that record is that I always used to write with other people and Come Down was the first track I had written on my own. It was written in the context of half regret, half celebration and just being objective about the situation of coming down from that high and dealing with those intense emotions.”- Interviewer- Was it a straightforward drug reference, then? “Well, not exactly but we come from a drug culture and we’ve all known casualties – they’re everywhere.”- Gavin

“…’Comedown’ even has a jazz rhythm.”- Gavin

“But the first song I wrote on guitar was ‘Comedown’, which was a good song for me.”- Gavin

Staff Thoughts:

“My all time favorite Bush song. Always has been & always will be. But I do like this song much better live. The extra fucks just make the song.”- Laura

“Gotta have fuck. Anyway, i never got the magic of Comedown, certainly not as a favorite song. It’s still OK, tho.” – Brandyn
