Never blame the rainbows for the rain
And learn to forget the memories that cause you pain
The last whispered wish of age is to live it all again
So never blame the rainbows for the rain

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.

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder
But life's not a wheel with chains made of steel
So bless me

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

If ever I return, pretty Peggy-o
If ever I return, pretty Peggy-o
If ever I return, all your cities I will burn
Destroying all the ladies in the are-e-o
Destroying all the ladies in the are-e-o

When you shook your long hair down my defenses crumbled;
feeling I'd begun to drown, all my words got jumbled.

Not a word would come to mind, I felt a child of seven.
When you shook your long hair down I saw one hope of heaven.
I was left without a chance, no hope of a returning;
in your eyes I saw a glance of all my bridges burning.

Now your ships are burned
And the evil has returned
It will creep upon you
There's nothing to do
It will rip up your mind
And death you will find
Life is just a game
And death is just the same

Burn down the mission
If we're gonna stay alive
Watch the black smoke fly to heaven
See the red flame light the sky

Sisters and brothers daddys mothers standin' 'round cryin'
When I reached the scene the flames were makin' a ghostly whine
So I stood on my horse's back an' I screamed without a crack
I say oh baby why'd you burn your brother's house down ?

Hey ! Hey ! Hey ! Hey !

Look out the sky turn a hell fire red Lord
Somebody's house is burnin' down down, down down

Welcome to the abandoned land
Come on in child, take my hand
Here there's no work or play, only one bill to pay
There's just five words to say as you go down, down, down
You're gonna burn in hell
Oh, burn in hell

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend,
but I always thought that I'd see you baby, one more time again, now.

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, baby
Can't you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won't you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

You knew you'd never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?
Do you believe in rock ’n' roll
Can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Don't believe that rock 'n' roll
Can really change the world
As it spins in revolution
It spirals and turns
I, I believe in love

The moving finger writes,
And, having writ, moves on.
You can't hold back the clock -
It just ticks on and on

The ticking seconds hear them call
My spell of hours will make you fall
Each timer that I break
Will halt the flowing sands
Each timer that I break
Will put you in my hands
At 25 o'clock

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
Dancing lights againnst the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
Sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4

And it's one, two, three, what are we fighting for?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn.
Next stop is Vietnam.
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates.
Ain't no need to wonder why.
Whoppee! We're all going to die.

And when I get excited
My little China girl says
"Oh baby, just you shut your mouth."
She says: "Shhh..."
She says: "Shhh..."

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

Music is what we like to play
All day all day all day all day all day
To soothe your soul, yeah
Lets have a picnic go to the park
Rolling in the grass 'til long after dark
To soothe you soul, yeah

If I could have it this way I know I'd
I'd wanna live where it's like today
I'd wanna live where it's always this way
I wanna live where it's always Saturday

If you leave me now, you'll take away the biggest part of me
Ooohh no
Baby please don't go
And if you leave me now, you'll take away the very heart of me
Ooohh no
Baby please don't go
Ooohh girl
I just want you to stay

A love like ours is love that's hard to find
How could we let it slip away
We've come too far to leave it all behind
How could we end it all this way
When tomorrow comes and we'll both regret
The things we said today

The boat rides we would take
The moonlight on the lake
The way we danced and hummed our favorite song
The things we did last summer
I'll remember all winter long

I'll always remember the chill of November
The news of the fall, the sounds in the hall
The clock on the wall ticking away
"Seize the Day," I heard him say
Life will not always be this way
Look around, hear the sounds
Cherish your life while you're still around

With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step

Look at him running, there's so far to go
He's very short of breath
And he'd said don't be late, just don't be late
With his parcel tucked tight under his arm
He's sure he's passed half way
And he'd said don't be late, just don't be late

There's a fog upon L.A.
And my friends have lost their way
We'll be over soon they said
Now they've lost themselves instead.
Please don't be long
Please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Or I may be asleep

Take it from me, don't be a do-badder up
Do-badder up, do bother to put your foot up
That ladder that leads you to that place
Below and every day you lose other you
Feel sadder, you get madder so use the other
Step ladder, you climb the other way

When the day is done
We'll get out of here
When the race is run
And the coast is clear
Jump a sinking ship
Grab a falling leaf
I'll place a smoke ring 'round your yellow fingers
And a rose in your teeth
And we'll go climbing broken ladders to glory

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay
Forever young

May the Lord protect and defend you.
May the Lord preserve you from pain.
Favor them, Oh Lord, with happiness and peace.
Oh, hear our Sabbath prayer. Amen.
