Lyrics


So long ago

Certain place

Certain time

You touched my hand

All the way

All the way down to Emmaline


But if our paths never cross

Well you know I'm sorry but


If I live to see the seven wonders

I'll make a path to the rainbow's end

I'll never live to match the beauty again

The rainbow's end


So it's hard to find

Someone with that kind of intensity

You touched my hand, I played it cool

And you reached out your hand to me


But if our paths never cross

Well you know I'm sorry but


If I live to see the seven wonders

I'll make a path to the rainbow's end

I'll never live to match the beauty again

The rainbow's end


So long ago

It's a certain time

It's a certain place

You touched my hand and you smiled

All the way back you held out your hand


If I hope and if I pray

Ooh it might work out someday


If I live to see the seven wonders

I'll make a path to the rainbow's end

I'll never live to match the beauty again

The rainbow's end


If I live to see the seven wonders

I'll make a path to the rainbow's end

I'll never live to match the beauty again


If I live to see the seven wonders

I'll make a path to the rainbow's end

I'll never live to match the beauty again
