The Rainbow
Lyrics
RAINBOW
I caught a rainbow yesterday
I bet you think that's very strange
I really can't explain what happened.
I'm standing in a lonely place
A drizzle down my tear soaked face
The sun behind my head refracting
But there it was beneath my feet
A bridge into the sky,
And when a row of steps appeared
You can imagine my surprise.

I stepped on up and I climbed that thing
I felt as if my feet had wings,
but I did not hear the bluebirds sing,
I only I heard my last blue tune.

You cannot know what you don't know,
Rainbows tend to come and go.
It's hard to catch and keep one safely.
They are not a beast you can keep caged,
There's nothing like a rainbows rage,
You turn your back they eat you quickly.
But once they're caught you get no rest,
They torture you all day.
And optimism reigns unchecked
The blues get blown away.


Oh I stepped on up and I climbed that thing
I felt as if my feet had wings,
But I did not hear the bluebirds sing,
I only I heard my last blue tune. (repeat)

Be warned its dangerous coming down
If you fall you hit the ground
And darkness will attack like lightening.
Rainbows tend to break apart
Unless you keep them in your heart
You have to keep that love light shining.
You want know let's not pretend, if the pot of gold is true?
I can confirm, that mystery solved.
The pot of gold is You.
