lyrics

Rainbows have a way of knowing

And welcoming the light

Flying its flag
Rainbows have a way of showing

And teaching about light

Naming all the colors
Water with its peace with time

Can block and bend the light

I want to be that water

I am a rainbow chaser

I want to get that pot

Of gold at the end
I want to see the way

I want to know the way

Sailing on the waves

Floating in the waves

Feeling a part of time

Feeling all of the time

I want to be a rainbowmaker

I want to be a prism-man

I want to show my colors
I want a sky, each star an eye

Mirroring me back my man

Shining on me, shining me
I want to be, be understood

And I want, want to be heard

I want to be cared about

I want to be a rainbowmaker

To refract a tiny piece

Of all the distance of light
I want to be a rainbowmake
r
I want to be a prism-man

Iwant to show you my colors

I want to see the way

I want to know the way

Sailing on the waves

Floating in the waves

Feeling a part of time

Feeling all of the time
