(Hugh Prestwood)

Not that long ago I was on the run
People telling me I should be someone
And the things I'd learned were forgotten in my haste
Till I reached the end of the rainbow I had chased.

It was only water shining in thin air
I put out my hand and there was nothing there
After all the promise, after all the prayer
It was only water shining in the air.

Now I've got a wife and she sees my through
And I've got a friend I can talk straight to
And I've got some dreams just a bit more down to earth
And I don't forget what a rainbow's really worth.

'Cause it's only water shining in thin air
I put out my hand and there was nothing there
After all the promise, after all the prayer
It was only water shining in the air.

If you want fame and fortune, then you just be my guest
If you want to pay those dues, I wish you all the best.

But it's only water shining in the air
I put out my hand and there was nothing there
After all the promise, after all the care
It was only water shining in the air.

It was only water shining in the air...
This song is from the album "Currents [RCA]", "Love Stories [Bmg/RCA]" and "Best Of".
