One Rainy Wish

Album: Axis: Bold As Love (1967)
  • Gold and rose, the color of the dream I had
    Not too long ago
    A misty blue and the lilac too
    A never to grow old

    There you were under the tree of song
    Sleeping so peacefully
    In your hand a flower played
    A waiting there for me

    I have never
    Laid eyes on you
    Not like this before
    This timeless day
    A but you walked and ya ha
    Once smiled my name
    And you stole
    My heart away
    A stole my heart away little girl, yeah
    All right

    Gold and rose the color of the dream I had
    Not too long ago
    Misty blue and lilac too
    A never to grow old

    Gold and rose the color of the dream I had
    Misty blue and lilac too
    Gold and rose the color of the dream I had
    Misty blue and lilac too
    Gold and rose, gold and rose, gold and rose

    It's only a dream
    I'd love to tell somebody about this dream
    The sky was filled with a thousand stars
    While the sun kissed the mountains blue
    And eleven moons played across the rainbows
    Above me and you
    Gold and rose the color of the velvet walls surround us Writer/s: JIMI HENDRIX

  • George from Little Rock, ArWhat a beautiful song. Hendrix uses his guitar on this like an artist using a paintbrush on a blank canvas. This is probably his most underrated song ever.
  • Mark B. Stoned from Desperate Hot Springs, CaSome say that Jimi was a prophet of sorts. I had a baby cousin who was born in 2002, which also happened to be around the time that I got into Hendrix, but she didn't live much more than two years. Her name was Misty Blue. Whenever I hear this song, I think of the lyric, "Misty Blue and Lilac too are never to grow old," and wonder if he was a prophet as well.
  • Hendrixlover from Does It Matter?, Cathis song is awesome. i love the drums in the beginning.
