Rainbow lyrics - Album: Rainbow Rising [1976]

Tarot Woman

I don't wanna go

Something tells me no, no, no, no

But traces in the sand

The lines inside my hand say go go go

Beware of a place

A smile on a bright shiny face

I'll never return, how do you know

Tarot woman, I don't know, I don't know

She can take you there

The entrance to the fair, my, my, my

Ride the carousel

Cast a music spell, you can fly, fly

Something in the air

Tells me to beware, no, no, no

Her love is like a knife

She'll carve away your life, so go, so go

Run With the Wolf


In the light of day

You can hear the old ones say

Can you feel the change begin

By the fall of the show

A single soul will go

With foot steps on the white

There's an unholy light

There's a hole in the sky

Something evil's passing by, what's to come

When the siren calls you go

To run with the wolf

When the world makes a turn

Then eyes of one will learn

That a sound just like the wind

Only makes the change begin

By the end of the rain

The feelings passed again

>from the things that shap and bite

An unholy light

There's a break in the ground

Like the swirling waters

Angry as they pull you down

When the siren calls you go

To run with the wolf 2... times

Like a beast in the field

You know his fate is still

To run with the wolf

To run with the wolf

Seas that make you know it's late now we go

To run, run, run, to run, run, run with the wolf

Run, run, run, run now we go

Starstruck


If I'm high on a hill

She will still be looking down at me

What does she see

That brings her closer every day to my heart

If I'm away from home

And think I'm all alone

She's there, somewhere

I look around to see

And looking back at me

She's there, beware

Creeping like a hungry cat

Seen it before

And I know it can mean that

* the lady's starstruck she's nothing but bad luck

The lady's starstruck running after me

The lady's starstruck she's nothing but bad luck, yeah, yeah

I could fly to the moon

But she'd soon find a way to be there

I never knew for a while

That a smile made 'em really care

She wants a souvenir

To everyone it's clear

She's hooked, one look

She wants a photograph

And everybody laughs

But not me, 'cause I see

She's creeping like a hungry cat

Seen it before and I know it can mean that

*

I used to be a game

Now I can't repeat my name at all

She seems to believe that

I never can refuse her call

She wants a souvenir

To everyone it's clear

She's hooked, one look

She wants a photograph

And everybody laughs

But not me, 'cause I see

She's creeping like a hungry cat

Seen it before and I know it can mean that

* x 2

And back of a tree

I'm looking back at me

Blind and off my state

I've just got to beware

The lady's starstruck

Yes, she's bad luck, bad luck

Do You Close Your Eyes


Oh na na na na

Mystery in me is something I can't see

But I see you very well

You slippy, cool, nobody's fool

But there's something inside I can't tell

I know a poor man, a rich man

I know I can talk to a king

But nobody here is gonna tell me

I can't find out one thing

I see your glow around you

Open your arms 'cause I'm walking to you, come straight or through

Maybe I'm wrong but I know it won't take long to see

Do you close your eyes

Do you close your eyes

Do you close your eyes when you making love, yeah, yeah

Making sweet love to me, yeah

The logical friend said that I know in the end

The things that make me smile

To right from the start, I take the image of your heart

And know it all the while

I know a rich man, a poor man

I know I can talk to a king, yeah

So nobody here is gonna make me believe

I can't find out one thing

I see your glow around you

Open your arms 'cause I'm coming, running, straight or through

I could be wrong but I know it won't take long to see

Do you close your eyes

Do you close your eyes

Do you close your eyes when you making love, yeah

Do you close your eyes

Do you close your eyes, I've gotta know

Do you close your eyes when you making love

Stargazer


High noon

Oh I'd sell my soul for water

Nine years' worth

Of breakin' my back

There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard

See how he glides

Why he's lighter than air

Oh I see his face

Where is your star

Is it far, is it far, is it far

When do we leave

I believe, yes, I believe

* in the heat and the rain

With whips and chains

Just to see him fly

So many die

We built a tower of stone

With out flesh and bone

Just to see him fly

Don't know why

Now where do we go

Hot wind moving fast across the desert

We feel that our time has arrived

The world spins while we put his wing together

A tower of stone to take him straight to the sky

Oh I see his face

Where is your star

It is far, is it far, is it far

When do we leave, yeah

I believe, I believe

*

All eyes see the figure of the wizard

As he climbs to the top of the world

No sound as he falls instead of rising

Time standing still

Then there's blood on the sand

Oh I see his face

Where was your star

Was it far, was it far

When did we leave

We believe, we believe, we believe

In the heat and rain

With whips and chains

To see him fly

So many die

We built a tower of stone

With out flesh and bone

To see him fly

But why, it don't rain

With all our chains,

Did so many die

Just to see him fly

Look at my flesh and bone

Now look, look, look, look

Look at this tower of stone

I see a rainbow rising

Look there on the horizon

And I'm coming home

Coming home, I'm coming home

Time is standing still

He gave me back my will

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Going home

I'm going home

My eyes are bleeding

And my heart is weeping

We still hope, we still hope, oh

Take me back

He gave me back my will

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Going home

I'm going home

My eyes are bleeding

And my heart is weeping

We still hope, we still hope, oh

Take me back, take me back

Back to my home, oh, oh...

A Light in the Black


Can't forget his face

What a lonely place

Has he really let us go

All the time that's lost

What's the final cost

Will I really get away

All my life it seems

Just a crazy dream

Reaching for somebody's star

Can't be believed it all

Did he really fall

What to do now I don't know

Something's calling me back

There's a light in the black

Am I ready to go

I'm coming home

Breathed the air before

Heard the thunder roar

Never knew it was for me

Always looking down

Lost and never found

Eyes that looked but not to see

All my life it seems

Just a crazy dream

Reaching for somebody's star

Like an open door

That you've passed before

But you've never had the key

Something's calling me back

Like a light in the black

Am I ready to go

I'm coming home, I'm coming home

I'm going back to my home

I'm going home, home, home

I'm going home, home, home

I'm coming back

Won't forget his face

What a lonely place

Did he really let us go

All the time that's lost

What's the final cost

Will I really get away

All my life it seems

Just a crazy dream

Reaching for somebody's star

Can't believe it all

Did he really fall

What to do now well I know

Something's calling me back

Like a light in the black

Yes I'm ready to go

I'm coming home, home

I'm on my way back home

I'm here to stay

Here I will stay

I'll stay, I'll stay
