enchanted

When Sarah McLach­lan does a cov­er for any song, my heart just melts…and when I dis­cov­ered her ver­sion of “The Rain­bow Con­nec­tion” it pos­i­tive­ly dis­in­ter­grat­ed into marsh­mal­low goo. My eyes get teary when the mup­pets sing this shame­less­ly sap­py song…so when I heard Sarah sweet­ly lilt this song of my child­hood I was a mess of snot and tears.

A link to this song on iTunes here. and the lyrics are below. Enjoy. 😉

The Rainbow Connection

The Rain­bow Connection
writ­ten by Ken­ny Loggins

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what’s on the oth­er side?
Rain­bows are visions, but only illusions
And rain­bows have noth­ing to hide
So we’ve been told, and some choose to believe it
I know they’re wrong; wait and see
Some­day we’ll find it, the Rain­bow Connection
The lovers, the dream­ers, and me

Who said that ev’ry wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morn­ing star?
Some­body thought of that, and some­one believed it
Look what it’s done so far.
What’s so amaz­ing that keeps us star gazing
And what do we think we might see?
Some­day we’ll find it, the Rain­bow Connection
The lovers, the dream­ers, and me
All of us under its spell;
We know that it’s prob­a­bly magic

Have you been half asleep and 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 name
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it
It’s some­thing that I’m s’posed to be
Some­day we’ll find it, the Rain­bow Connection
The lovers, the dream­ers, and me.
La da da de da da do
La la da da da de da do
