lyrics

So many memories that he forgets
some of them are intentional
there are many things that he regrets
It's always the little things that are left behind
they find a quiet place in the back part of his mind

But some things he remembers and he'll never forget
like the way she smiled, and especially the way she kissed

Because she was his bright side of the rainbow on a starlit sky
the dark side of the moon was shining in her eye
and he saw that sunshine the day he almost kissed her
and the next day when she went in for it he said to himself "why sure"
and now everything he knows, it's nothing but grand
cause he's got this green eyed girl in the palm of his hand
and she calls him a charmer when he says she's got these pretty eyes
and he stole her heart away - what a surprise - yeah
Rainbow surprise

So many good times, that he's been through
tried to take advantage of that
when he still had the courage to do what he wanted to
but he got feeling troubled, looked up into the sky,
heard a voice that said, "Son dry your eye"
Because it gets better as you go along
don't you give till you listen to my song
and he sang there's a -

Bright side of the rainbow just beyond the cloud
the dark side of the moon will be shining real proud
and you can find that sunshine, its hiding out there
just open up your heart
take a breath of that honest air

Now he's a daddy with a little girl
trying to raise her the best he can
treating her like a divers pearl
and sometimes its challenging as we all know
but its them challenges that make love grow

and he reads her a story
as she struggles to read along
and right before she's giving up
he says honey listen my song

and he sang, your my

Your my bright side of the rainbow on a starlit sky
the dark side of the moon is shining in your eye
and I saw that sunshine the day I saw your face
tears started rolling down as momma said,
"That's our baby, grace"

and now everything he knows, it's nothing but grand
cause he's got this green eyed girl, tugging on his hand
and she calls him a charmer when he says she's got these pretty eyes
her momma's eyes
Oh, she stole his heart away
and that was quite the surprise
Rainbow suprise
