Description
I wrote this song in 2008 and asked Stan Loh if he would write lyrics and vocals.
His folk styling fit nicely.
Thanks Stan!

Lyrics
But A Rainbow’s So Beautiful
© Steve Caustrita & Stan Loh August 15, 2012

I’m hopeless chasing rainbows,
Or grab shadows,
You’re so intangible,
Been trying to get inside your heart,
But it seems so impossible,
Sometimes you’re a stone wall,
Sometimes a rubber ball,
You never say yes,
You never say no!

Chorus
But a rainbow’s so beautiful,
Its radiance so rare,
You make me so wishful,
I fly through the air!

Verse 2
You can get me going,
And you know it,
Make me run around in circles,
Wanna get on your right side,
To win a point or two,
I even prayed to Mary,
On how to win you,
But however I try,
I haven’t a clue!

Chorus
But a rainbow’s so beautiful,
Its radiance so rare,
You make me so wishful,
I fly through the air!

Verse 3
I don’t have no diamonds,
Private islands,
Just a couple of Apple shares,
And I’ll gladly hand them over,
Show I’m no pushover,
But if that buys a piece,
Of your heart in there somewhere,
I’ll do every thing you,
Would want me to do!

Outro Chorus
Cause a rainbow’s so beautiful,
Its radiance so rare,
You make me feel so wishful,
I fly through the air!

I see
myself late in the night sitting at a club and nodding and enjoying this really good song. For some reason I'm thinking early Billy Joel.
