When there's lightning
You know it always brings me down
Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
I cry out for magic
I feel it dancing in the light
It was cold, lost my hold
To the shadows of the night

No sign of the morning coming
You've been left on your own
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
A Rainbow in the Dark

Do your demons
Do they ever let you go
When you've tried do they hide deep inside
Is it someone that you know
You're just a picture
Just an image caught in time
We're a lie you and I
We're words without a rhyme

No sign of the morning coming
You've been left on your own
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
Just a Rainbow in the Dark

(Lead/Instrumental)

When I see lightning
You know it always brings me down
Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
Feel the magic
I feel it floating in the air
But it's fear and you'll hear it calling you beware
Look Out!

No sign of the morning coming
No sight of the day
You've been left on your own
Like a Rainbow
Like a Rainbow in the Dark Yeah...
Your a Rainbow in the Dark
Just a Rainbow in the Dark
No sign of the morning
Just a Rainbow in the Dark

    Maybe like the rest of us feel sometimes, he felt lost and unnoticed. And he and the person he was referring to as "we", never got it "right". Maybe it's about knowing he/she is someone of value that no one else seems to be willing to acknowledge or understand, so he/she goes unnoticed, undiscovered, misunderstood. A sad (dark) place to be. Yet, there is one person out there who sees and acknowledges him/her as the something special that he/she is. As someone of value. His/her rainbow in the dark.

    I think its talking about being seen. And the hard ships of life. Ur the rainbow. A bright being tht everyone should be abe to see and to enjoy your colors. But like a rainbow ur only noticed after a storm. And the lightning might represent a facade or something tht you want to be. Cause its being seen not you ur the one thts lost and never found like a rainbow in the dark.
