lyrics

MIDDLE OF THE RAINBOW
Words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

He said meet me in the middle of the rainbow
Sunshine in the eye of the storm
When you’ve squandered every ounce of your gold
And you’ve burned the last bridge that could get you back home

He was walking down the floodwaters churning
When a charcoaled beam drifted by
Then he smelled the smell of bridges burning
The woman who once loved him, trapped on his side

He said welcome to the middle of the rainbow
I’ll bet your wonderin’ which way to go
He said you look like you just came from another empty pot of gold
Now why’d you burn the last bridge that could get you back home?

Sundrops in the raindrops
Wind through the folds of her dress
Thunder said no, but that lightning said yes
‘Neath the middle of the rainbow, she found that caress

Se said love’s like the middle of a rainbow
Sunshine in the eye of the storm
You’re never gonna know if it’s coming or gone
Savor that rainbow it won’t be here for long

Savor that rainbow
You’ve got to savor that rainbow
You’re never gonna know if it’s coming or gone
Savor that rainbow
Savor that rainbow it won’t be here for long
