Why are there so many songs about rainbows
What's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see
Someday we'll find it, the Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
What do we think we might see?
All of us under it's spell
We know that it's probably magic
Have you been half-asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
It may be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
