Blue birds

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There’s a land out of reach and
Lost to both you and I

Somewhere over the rainbow
Hopeless view
Where the dreams you’re a fool to dream
Never do come true

Someday day I’ll beg upon a star
To tell me what the reasons are
Remind me

Lest troubles flow like sanguine drops
Beneath my corpse as afterthoughts
That’s how you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds die
Birds fall broken from lost hope
Wondering why, oh, why?

If happy little bluebirds fly
But blue birds fail to answer why
What, oh, what hope have I?

Lyrics based on Over the Rainbow ยฉ 1939 EMI FEIST CATALOG INC

      1. i am happy to be here to provide all the cynical self pitying despair one might find useful to relate to in another (in response to you and @writingdreams cos wordpress won’t let me add comments to after this comment)
