Riding Rainbows

by Brett Matthew West

Riding Rainbows


Tonight I'm riding rainbows that always go away
Looking for tomorrow in every yesterday
Once upon forever I used to be your man
But, that was many years ago, and, it's so hard to understand

Why do I always have to do the things I do
The hardest fall I ever had was the day that I lost you
When that old familiar feeling starts to come around
Nothing that I know of keeps my feet here on the ground

This bottle on the table can't drown your memory
Loneliness is all I know of, and, it won't let me be
No matter where I run to I see our love die
Shot down by the lie I told you the night I made you cry

It's not easy to admit it, but, I wanted you to know
I keep holding on to something I lost so long ago
There's no way we can get back to where our love has been
You told me that you're leaving, and, you won't be back again

Now, I'm out here riding rainbows that always go away
Looking for tomorrow in every yesterday
Nobody seems to notice, and, no one seems to care
Is there any wonder I never get nowhere

Many times you led me down the path of no return
Till all that's left behind me are bridges that you burn
Help me find a new love that I can call my own
One who wants to be with me then I won't be alone

I'm not looking back in anger at places that we've been
You gave your heart and soul to me, and, I gave them back again
Tonight I'm riding rainbows that always go away
Looking for tomorrow in every yesterday
