I have been ungrateful And I have been unwise Restless from the cradle But now I realize It's so hard to see the rainbow Through glasses dark as these Maybe I'll be able From down on my knees

Oh I am weak Oh I know I am vain Take this weight from me Let my spirit be unchained

Old man swearin' at the sidewalk And I am overcome Seems that we've both forgotten Forgotten to go home

Have I seen an angel Or have I seen a ghost Where's that rock of ages When you need it most

It's so hard to see the rainbow Through glasses dark as these Maybe I'll be able From down on my knees
