Matchbox – Over The Rainbow/you Belong To Me lyrics

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high

There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue

And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where troubles melt like lemon drops

Above the chimney tops
That's were you will find me.

See the pyramides along the nile

Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle.
Just remember
All the while
You belong to me.
Someday I'll wish upon a star
.. .
Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then
Oh why can't I?
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why theni oh why can't I?
