Katharine McPhee – Somewhere Over The Rainbow lyrics

When all the clouds darken up the skyway,
There's a rainbow highway to be found,
Leading from your window pane,
Just a step beyond the rain...

Somewhere over the rainbow,
Way up high,
There's a land That I heard of once, in a lullaby,
Somewhere over the rainbow skys are blue
And the dreams,
The dreams, that you dare to dream,
Really do come true,

Some day I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me,
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
A way above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me,

Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly, over the rainbow, then why...
Then oh why... Can't I

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow...
Why, Oh, Why can't I?
