  • So long ago
    Certain place
    Certain time
    You touched my hand
    On the way
    On the way down to Emmeline

    But if our paths never cross
    Well, you know I'm sorry, but

    If I live to see the seven wonders
    I'll make a path to the rainbow's end
    I'll never live to match the beauty again
    The rainbow's edge

    (Aaron)
    (Aaron)

    So it's hard to find
    Someone with that kind of intensity
    You touched my hand, I played it cool
    And you reached out your hand to me

    But if our paths never cross
    Well, no, I'm not sorry, but

    If I live to see the seven wonders
    I'll make a path to the rainbow's end
    I'll never live to match the beauty again
    The rainbow's edge

    (Aaron)
    (Aaron)

    So long ago
    It's a certain time
    It's a certain place
    You touched my hand and you smiled
    All the way back you held out your hand
    If I hope and if I pray
    Ooh it might work out someday

    If I live to see the seven wonders
    I'll make a path to the rainbow's end
    I'll never live to match the beauty again

    If I live to see the seven wonders
    I'll make a path to the rainbow's end (I'll make a path there)
    I'll never live to match the beauty again
    (You'll never live to see the beauty, the beauty, that same same beauty)

    If I live to see the seven wonders
    I'll make a path to the rainbow's end
    I'll never live to match the beauty again
    (Oh well if I hope and I pray, well, maybe it might work out some day) Writer/s: Sandy Stewart, Stephanie Nicks
