Tell you I don't understand it' he said
'What are you hoping to gain?
Rocking this boat and you'll end up capsizing
Throwing it all down the drain
Said to quit chasing the end of the rainbow
Told me we'd find nothing there
But you and I know, girl, there's something else out there.

So come on with me, off on a journey
Far away out on the sea
Sailing away as the dawn tide is turning
Soon you and I will be free
Wo-oh darling I know there is danger
On the road to the promised land
But, oh, the beauty we'll find.

Lying here watching the world from a window
Seeing it passing us by
Knowing we're fooling ourselves when we think
We'll be happy up here till we die
Getting so good at inventing excuses
Hiding the feeling inside
But it's growing so strong, I can't wait any longer.

So come on etc repeat

Some getting by, by keeping their eyes closed
Some are too blind they can't see
Others live hiding behind stained glass windows
But that never helped you or me
Wasting the years stumbling round in the shadows
With no one to light up the way
But now we're together, we'll guide one another, so.

come on with me, off on a journey
Far away out on the sea
Sailing away as the dawn tide is turning
To a place where we both will be free
Oh darling I know there is danger
On the road to the promised land
Oh leaving our heartaches behind
Oh darling the beauty we'll find

When we rise up in the morning
Sailing out on the ocean
Just you and me babe
When we lie down in the evening
Oh, the beauty we'll find
