Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers the dreamers and me.
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it, look what its done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing, and what do we think we might see?
D/F# Em G/D C G/B C/D D7
All of us under its spell, we know that its probably mag---ic.
Have you been half asleep & have you heard voices? I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound, that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it, it's something that I'm supposed to be.

La-da-da, de-da-da-do---, la-la-da-da, da-de, da-do----.
