lyrics

DOUBLE RAINBOW

VERSE 1
PUDDLE ON THE PAVEMENT
RAINBOW IN THE OIL AND PARAFFIN.
DROPS OF RAIN WERE FALLING
SUN IGNITING LIGHT WAVES, WE COULDN’T SEE.
KNEES AND HANDS ALL MUDDY
JOHN PUSHED MIKEY OVER, FIGHT BEGINS.
HIGH ABOVE, CATHEDRAL-LIKE
THE BIGGEST DOUBLE RAINBOW THAT’S EVER BEEN.

CHORUS
AND THE EARTH CRIED
SAVE OUR SOULS
THE EARTH CRIED
SAVE OUR SOULS

MID 8
AND WE RAN AND WE RAN
TO THE TREASURE AT THE END
OF THE RAINBOW
WE WERE SURE TO HOLD

VERSE 2
OUT OF BREATH AND REELING
DIZZY FROM THE LACK OF OXYGEN.
SHARING OUT THE WATER UNDER
REDS, ORANGE-YELLOWS, GREENS AND BLUES.
RAINBOW CAST ITS LIGHT
ACROSS OUR LONG AND FRIGHTENED DISTANT STARES.
BAG THAT RAINBOW
BRING IT HOME TO WARM THE COLDNESS THERE.

CHORUS

MID 8 …WE WERE SURE THE EARTH CRIED
