My Rainbow

I used to have a rainbow, I could see it all the time

For some reason it left me, I’m still not quite sure why
Every day I look for it, waiting for it to shine
Every night I give up hope, it never comes around
Let me tell you about the rainbow that I used to know

At first i thought the red was just a bit too much
Now that it’s gone though, I would never give it up
Gone is the color of passion and driven mind
Even though it hurt sometimes, that color still was mine
Red I’ll always miss you even though you weren’t always right.

Lovely little orange, you were always like fine wine
Overwhelming at first sight, but deeper every try
Very much a reason to fully feel alive
Every time I see you orange I wish that you were mine

How I miss you yellow, somehow mellow, somehow bright
Always such a joy to have you in my life
Please, please yellow you can’t imagine what it’s like
Passing time without you, is like watching paintings dry
Yellow if you don’t come back home at least just say goodbye

Every shade of green was always interesting to me
Never understood what green could really be
Very understated but powerful the same
You showed yourself little by little but then just went away

So now it comes to blue and I was always close to you
At least you stayed the longest and always told the truth
Didn’t think that I would miss you but I promise that I do
Now that I’m without you I don’t know what to do
Everything around me makes me think of you
Simply put I need you blue just to make it through
Sorry if I hurt you or ever doubted you

Shockingly indigo left me just as well
Upset at all the drama all the other colors caused
Restless as a rabbit, but ready for some peace
Perhaps it found a better place, a place to call its home
Ready to settle down, instead of seeing different things
In my mind that is what I hope for
Surely it is true
Even though I miss you Indigo I wish the best for you

Finally there’s purple, a powerful color indeed
Every time I saw you it weighed heaviest on me
At times I wonder if you drove the other colors away
Right now i don’t really care though, I still would take you back

Now you know my rainbow
Obviously, it meant alot to me
Try, if you can find it, to bring it back to me
Help me find my rainbow, it’s time to bring it home
I hope that it misses me as much as I miss it
Never have I been the same since the day it walked away
Guess I’ll keep on looking for my rainbow that just left.
