I traced my footprints through the sands of yesterday
Back the way I came I was returning
And then I saw me standing just across the river
Just across the bridge that I’d left burning

It was all reaching out to me
Now my reflection in the water’s all I see

(Then it flew away)
Back to the laughing green of summer days
(Flew away)
Back to the chilly golden autumn haze
(Flew away)
To a place called yesterday
(Yesterday)

Come on in and sit down
It’s good to be in your town
We’re gonna take you for a rainbow ride
There’s no excuse not to relax and get loose
And let us take you for a rainbow ride

It’s been a long, hard day
But now it’s time to play
‘Cause we’ve got it all planned
We’re gonna strike up the band
We’re gonna take you for a rainbow ride

When the sunlight finally blossoms way up high
Purple shadows fall across the countryside
We could get together for a rainbow ride
Close your eyes and let it happen
Bright and breezy, nice and easy

Hold on while the music takes you way up high
We can race the moon across the evening sky
See the night time rainbow colors flying by
Close your eyes and let it happen
Rising, falling, gently calling you

Let the evening fly away
While you’re dreamin’
Come on, take that rainbow ride with me

Let the evening fly away
While you’re dreamin’
Come on, take that rainbow ride with me
Come on, take that rainbow ride with me
Come on, take that rainbow ride with me
