(lyrics by James Seals; music by James Seals, Dash Crofts, Bobby Lichtig,
Jim Varley and Roger Johnson, 1975)
From the albums I'LL PLAY FOR YOU (1975) and TODAY (1998, 2000).

In the evening when I wake up and my golden rainbow is gone.
I reach out and I feel you there. And I see that look on your face.
And it seems so natural, here with you.
In the closing moments just before I lose myself.
I forget about my problems and I just leave all my cares behind.
And for awhile, it seems almost worth it, here with you.

I would give my life for you, golden rainbow girl.
You make the darkness disappear, you brighten up my world.
I would say you're good for me, golden rainbow girl.
You make the darkness disappear, you brighten up my world.

When the evening star is rising and the shadows gather 'round.
I go back to where I found you. And I see that look on your face.
And it seems, oh so beautiful, here with you.

I would give my life for you, golden rainbow girl.
You make the darkness disappear, you brighten up my world.
I would say you're good for me, golden rainbow girl.
You make the darkness disappear, you brighten up my world.
Yes you do, yes you do.
