Rainbow in the Dark is a song I did before, but took a different approach. Today, I tried to make Dio proud.

Rainbow In the Dark - Ronnie James DioRonnie James Dio,..man,..that cat could wail and Rainbow In the Dark was a trademark song for him. It’s funny, but when I did this, a major storm front was moving into Trenton and I rushed to get it done. I didn’t know what I was going to sing (like normal) until I heard the storm warnings. After those, my mission was clear. I had done this tune in the early days of this project, but my voice wasn’t up to the awesomeness that it required, so I took it down a notch and made it a different type of piece. Today, on a dark and stormy night, Rainbow In the Dark was a tribute to an awesome rocker. R.I.P. Dio.

Lyrics:

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, I 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, your’re 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 rainbow in the dark, yeah

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
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, yeah
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
