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
But it was cold - I lost my hold
To the shadows of the night

There’s 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

There’s no sign of the morning coming
You’ve been left on your own
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
Just a rainnbow in the dark

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 -feel it floating in the air
But it’s fear - and you’ll hear
It calling you beware

There’s no sight of the morning coming
There’s no sight of the day
You’ve been left on your own
Like a rainbow
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
You’re a rainbow in the dark
Just a rainbow in the dark
No sign of the morning
You’re a rainbow in the dark

    I think it means we don't have a soul. "we're an image caught in time", just like buddhists believe. There's no sign of the morning coming, means there's no eternal life. But then again i'm always thinking philosophy, but wasn't dio a satanic atheist?
