Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And 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
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its 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?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it It's something that I'm s'posed to be. . .

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

La da da de da da do The lovers, the dreamers and me.
