  • Coming down again, coming down again
    Coming down again, coming down again

    Share your thoughts, there's nothing you can hide
    She was dying to survive
    I was caught, oh, taken for a ride
    She was showing no surprise

    Coming down again, coming down again
    Where are all my friends? Coming down again

    Coming down again, coming down again
    On the ground again, coming down again

    Slipped my tongue in someone else's pie
    Tasting better every time
    She turned green and tried to make me cry
    Being hungry it ain't no crime

    Coming down again, all my time's been spent
    Coming down again

    Coming down again, coming down again
    Coming down again, coming down again

    Coming down again, coming down again
    Where are all my friends?

    Coming down again, coming down again
    Coming down again, coming down again
    Where are all my friends? Comin Writer/s: Keith Richards, Michael Jagger

  • Zabo from Pugh, Pa.Where are all my friends, coming down again. Great point Keef they can't be found when you really need em.
    I also love the way Jagger does the back-up vocals on this tune. Mick's voice sounds great as the second. Just like when he did the back ups in "your so vain" with Carley Simon!
  • Juan from Buenos Aires, ArgentinalOVE THIS SONG , BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER A LITTLE SHORTER. TOO MUCH "COMING DOWN AGAINS "·
  • Ben from Chelsea, MeI love the line about "Slipped my tongue/in someone else's pie" - it's classic Keith lyrics, just really dirty and raunchy, and yet you love it so much. Like "Star Star"
