Fred Eaglesmith – Rainbow lyrics

What are you supposed to do
When your rainbow breaks in two
And all those stars come crashing to the ground
What are you supposed to do
When your pot of gold is fool's gold
And you're the only fool left around
What are you supposed to do
When the one you're counting on
Turns out she just can't do the math
What are you supposed to do
When your rainbow breaks in two
Now all you're left with is a half
What are you supposed to say
When the one who's going away
Turns out her ticket was for two
How can you carry on
When you've been stolen from
By the very one who said she'd be true
And all your setting suns
Turns out that they weren't done
They were coming up in someone else's world
What are you supposed to do
When your rainbows break in two
And all your favourite colours went to her
Pick up half a rainbow
Throw it over your shoulder
Tell her you're glad
That it's finally over
And find another rainbow
You can hook up to
That's what you're supposed to do
Yeah, pick up half a rainbow
Throw it over your shoulder
Tell her you're glad
That it's finally over
And find another rainbow
You can hook up to
That's what you're supposed to do
