Dio - Rainbow In The Dark (Live) Lyrics

The Rainbow in the Dark

When there's lightning – you know it always bring me down
Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
I cry out for magic – see it floating 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
Just a Rainbow in the Dark

Do your demons – well, 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

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
I cry out for magic - feel it dancing in the air
But it's fear - and you'll hear
It calling you beware

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

I see you’re all, you’re all, you’re all a Rainbow
You’re a Rainbow in the Dark

Thank you
Thank you
Good night

    Doug Aldrich on guitar. He's only one to give Viv a run for his money on this solo. I like this guy.

  16. brigham2250

    Okay, Ronnie was a great singer. No denying it. But why did he have to contribute vocals during the guitar solos? Like he was saying, hey, don't forget I'm here... as if that was a possibility.

  55. Paul Darling

    Loved RJD and his amazing voice! Had such a stage presence,despite his size! He was only 5'4" but was a giant among men twice his height. Ironically his music is wrought with fantasy and reminds me of The Lord Of The Rings,in fact Peter Jackson should re release them and add this awesome music to them!

  56. Cebola Rodrigues

    Dio the best vocal metal do word all times!!!!!!!

  57. Leandro Silvaaa

  79. Scott Wallace

    Ronnie James dio the man was a fuckin god among men

  80. Tony McCowen

    Having him play the Bay of Pigs Memorial Dance, Trey Parkers funniest joke. I laugh every time it enters my thoughts. I look like a lunatic laughing to myself in public but it's just so genius hahaha

[ Hear 'n Aid.] Thru his efforts he fed a lot of people and made aware their plight. Such a great man passed too soon. R.I.P. Ronnie.
