I wish I could dream.
I wish I could dream a dream come true.
I wish I could do what my heart tells me to.

In my desperation to find love I always seemed to lose it.
In fact it was never actually in my grasp.
All those times I thought I knew it,
it slipped right through the cracks.
I dont deny the way I felt,
or that I really did love those guys,
But they never loved me back.

From my mistakes I learned
how to better myself.
Out of the rubbage,
I found my true wealth.

I thought I had found what I was looking for,
But how quickly a diamond turns to coal.
It was the silver lining,
that turned bronze into gold.
And the rain plays her part as well as the sun.
Together they form the most radiant rainbow.

No matter how long the journey,
there will always be a rainbow at the end of the road.

Can you see the Rainbow?

thanks to you all. haha micky yes that light may in fact be the light of a train coming and im running head on into it but thats life, and the risks we take of everyday. we may crash and burn every now and then but thru the ashes we rise again, like the phoenix. as long as we never give up we will find that rainbow at the end of the road.
