Rainbow

  • I used to live in the darkness
    Dress in black, act so heartless, but now
    I see that colors are everything
    Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo
    Got back the stars in my eyes, too, yeah now
    I see the magic inside of me

    Yeah, maybe my head's fucked up
    But I'm falling right back in love with being alive
    Dreaming in light, light, lights
    This kitty cat lost her mind
    Been lookin' for a star-sent sign that I'll be alright
    Look to the skies

    I've found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
    Trust me, I know, life is scary
    But just put those colors on, girl
    Come and play along with me tonight

    I'd forgot how to daydream
    So consumed with the wrong things, but in
    The dark, I realized this life is short
    And deep down, I'm still a child
    Playful eyes, wide and wild, I can't
    Lose hope, what's left of my heart's still made of gold

    And I know that I'm still fucked up
    But aren't we all, my love?
    Darling, our scars make us who we are, are
    So when the winds are howling strong
    And you think you can't go on, hold tight, sweetheart

    You'll find a rainbow, rainbow, baby
    Trust me, I know life is scary
    But just put those colors on, girl
    Come and play along with me tonight
    You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you
    Trust me, I know, the ghosts will try to find you
    But just put those colors on, girl
    Come and paint the world with me tonight
    Night, night, night, night, night

    I found a rainbow, rainbow, baby
    Trust me, I know life is scary
    But just put those colors on, girl
    You gotta learn to let go, put the past behind you
    Trust me, I know, the ghosts will try to find you
    But just put those colors on, girl
    Come and paint the world with me tonight
    Oh, put those colors on, girl
    Come and paint the world with me tonight
    Come and paint the world with me tonight Writer/s: Kesha Sebert
