  • Day after day, I must face a world of strangers
    Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
    It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
    Who will always care, you're always there

    When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
    When my smallest of dreams won't come true
    I can take all the madness the world has to give
    But I won't last a day without you

    So many times when the city seems to be
    Without a friendly face, a lonely place
    It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you
    And you'll always smile, it's all worthwhile

    When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
    When my smallest of dreams won't come true
    I can take all the madness the world has to give
    But I won't last a day without you

    Touch me and I end up singing
    Trouble seems to up and disappear
    You touch me with the love you're bringing
    I can't really lose when you're near
    When you're near, my love

    If all my friends have forgotten half their promises they're not unkind
    Just hard to find
    One look at you and I know
    That I could learn to live without the rest
    I've found the best

    When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
    When my smallest of dreams won't come true
    I can take all the madness the world has to give
    But I won't last a day without you

    When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
    When my smallest of dreams won't come true
    I can take all the madness the world has to give
    But I won't last a day without you Writer/s: Paul H Williams, Roger S Nichols
