Every rainbow's satin sheen, every rainbow's satin sheen Some things are hard to take, this heartache You had it all worked out Now it's over Some things are hard to fake, lying wide awake It's so hard to understand Why it's over Do you know where they come from? An invisible sun Do you know where they come from? An invisible sun That never sets on anyone A light you've never seen Fills a place you've never been Every rainbow's satin sheen A light you've never seen Fills a place you've never been Every rainbow's satin sheen Every rainbow's satin sheen Every rainbow's satin sheen Is here again. Do you know where they come from? An invisible sun Do you know where they come from? An invisible sun That never sets on anyone.

Someone to rescue you Someone to rescue you Someone to rescue you It's dark where you've been It's hard what you've seen By yourself by a single light Still up though it's way past two The sounds of parties ripple by Cars and fighting too Night is sliding through Nailing into you Someone to rescue you Someone to rescue you Someone to rescue you It's dark where you've been (It's still got a hold on you) It's hard what you've seen (It's still got a hold on you) You've fallen down inside yourself You didn't expect to But run your years back to front Something's driving you See the multitude As they cry with you But surely someone will draw near To show you the way out of here Someone will surely rescue you Someone will rescue you.

I don't want to run I want to kneel I don't want to fight I want to yield I don't want to shout But I want you to hear So you must drive me away You don't need what I've got to give anyway The door is open, there's wind in your hair Look at the past, you have left me wanting there But there is a future where love is everywhere I don't want to hide I want to reveal A secret inside A place you can heal I don't want to beg Do you want me to steal? So you must drive me away You don't need what I've got to give anyway The door is open, there's wind in your hair Look at the past, you have left me wanting there But there is a future where love is everywhere No more sleepless nights Stranded near your hands No more building castles On your shifting sands Our cries are fading away The tide that swept in is now pulling away The door is open, there's wind in your hair Look at the past, you have left me wanting there But there is a future where love is everywhere.

I dreamt that I was lost I was stumbling up a road And all around me Was sunlight on the snow There's a photo in my pocket It was someone I didn't know The trees were bent in whispering It was many years ago You touched my heart Like a breath on glass I clouded over with desire It seemed that All I ever wanted The answer Was the touch of your hands I saw a dark horizon Where you saw sun on snow A second sight had always bent My eyes through shadows I felt proud and I felt strong I told it in a song And hoped the echoes could repair The hurting I had done I dreamt that I was lost I was stumbling up a road And all around me There was sunlight on the snow There's a photo in my wallet It was someone I didn't know The trees were bent in whispering It was time for me to go

You think a woman's love is cheap You think a woman like me Comes around every week Well You've got a lot to learn A lot to learn Lucky You've got time on your side Time to burn You don't miss me When the sun goes down You don't remember How you were lost And I found you Well You've got a lot to learn A lot to learn Lucky You've got time on your side Time to burn They say people don't change But I had to I won't sacrifice, I won't sacrifice Like I did for you The gold you mined Like it was nickels and dimes You won't be so rich You'll never be so rich And I will never be so poor Ever again

My lover used to say mean things to me He's sober up and say I'm sorry But nothing ever really changed Pride and anger were his ball and chain But I'm on the road to freedom and I'm not going back I had a job, I was doing 9 to 5 To pay the bills, just to survive Every day I sighed inside Man it felt like I was doing time But I'm on the road to freedom and I'm not going back The old grim reaper came a'calling you see The old grim reaper aimed his sickle at me I said I'm not going this time Some things I gotta do with my life Gotta get on the road to freedom and never go back People, it's the 11th hour We gotta wake up, gotta feel our power Free the earth from the for sale sign Free our minds from the fear inside Brother, sister we ain't going back On the road the freedom Pride and anger are your ball and chain On the road to freedom Man it feels like you are doing time On the road to freedom There's something you gotta do with your life You gotta get on the road to freedom And never go back
